It is not a secret that I love me some blush. I own tons and tons of blushes (it's a little addiction of mine...) and I have recently made another naughty purchase and got this dreamy palette by Sleek. It's a really handy one - with two powder blushes and one cream blush you are pretty much covered!
Sleek is a fantastic brand - it is affordable and very good quality. Their packaging is lovely and they are one of the few highstreet brands that have huge mirrors in their palettes. It is also more widely available in Ireland now. A big thumbs up from me!!
The shades inside are absolutely beautiful. From left to right you have Icing Sugar, Macaroon and Pink Mint. As always with Sleek products I advise to be careful with application, the blushes are extremely highly pigmented. But use them with a light hand and you will get a fabulous finish (AND the palette will last you for ages, everyone wins!).Icing Sugar is a gorgeous medium pink with a slight sparkle to it. If applied lightly it looks lovely and natural & gives your cheeks a bit of glow. Just to warn you, it does have fine glitter particles milled into the powder and won't give you too much of a sparkly effect (more of a glow) but if that's not your thang, you may want to avoid.
Macaroon, my favourite of the three, is quite a cool medium pink with no glitter particles. It is a cream blush and gives a wonderful glow to the cheeks without any sparkle whatsoever. Not all cream blushes last well on me but this one stayed put for a good 5-6 hours.
Pink Mint, the darkest of the trio is a medium rusty, peach-pink shade and, like Icing Sugar, contains fine glitter particles. This one comes out even more pigmented than the other two, so be super careful. The formula of this blush is absolutely gorgeous and when applied lightly it looks fantastic. It is to amazing on darker skin tones but I am pretty pale and can get away with wearing it on my only very slightly tanned face.
All in all, I can highly recommend this palette. I already have my eye on a few of the other blush palettes by Sleek. For €12.99 you just cannot go wrong!
Have you tried any Sleek blushes? Which one is your favourite?
