Sleek Blush by 3 in Lace Review

March 29, 2014



I’d been eyeing up the Sleek Blush by 3 Palettes for quite a while before I finally gave in and chose “Lace” on a recent Gem and Pants shopping trip. Out of all the colours I figures this would be the one I would get the most wear out of.



One of my favourite things about the Sleek range is their packaging. It’s so … well … sleek I suppose! It has a real luxurious feel to it and reminds me of NARS with it’s matte black casing but without the hefty price tag. On opening the palette, you are greeted with three stunning bold blushes.


Lace is a trio of matte and shimmer pink/peach shades that are absolutely gorgeous. As always, I’ve resisted using it until I’d taken my pictures and how I managed to keep my hands off it for that long I don’t know. These three shades are perfect for me and I’m looking forward to being able to pick between three different blushers (instead of just one shade that I have to pick and chuck into my make-up bag) when I take this out and about on tour and for gigs. I’m definitely going to pack this for my upcoming trip to Scotland!

Onto the swatch:



These were stunning to swatch. They feel so soft and silky and literally glide on. I love the coral/peach colour on the far right which along with the first shade is a Matte colour. The middle has a beautiful shimmer to it and will be perfect for a more glamorous night out.

There are eight shades of the Blush by 3 range at the moment – some of them are quite daring colours for blusher but I definitely want to get my hands on a few more – especially “flame“, “pumpkin” and “California I.A“.

I’m am most certainly overwhelmed by how beautiful this palette is and think it’s money well spent. For £9.99 you can pick up one of the many shades directly from the Sleek website here.

Have you tried out any of the Sleek Blush by 3 palettes? If so I’d love to know your thoughts.

Totally hellbent for silky soft corals – all over my cheeks!

    After a long debate of should I? Shouldn’t I? I finally gave in and bought my first Sleek pallet in Lace. I’ve seen so many great reviews about it and I thought “just do it, you’ll regret it if you don’t”. I very rarely pay over £5 for a piece of make up and I find that the Collection and Collection 2000 range that is the supermarket’s and “drugstore’s” own brand to be really good quality and really good prices. The most I have spent is around £8 for a Max Factor lipstick which I also use (I paid enough for it, I’m going to get the most out of it). I did manage to find the Sleek Lace pallet on amazon for £7.19 instead of the £9.99 Superdrug and Sleek’s website wanted and I can’t wait for it to arrive. Hopefully I’ll wear it all the time because I want to and not just because I have to get the most out of it.

      This was exactly how I felt! But with all the reviews and the absolutely beautiful colours I really couldn’t resist. I’m glad I didn’t though because these colours are so pigmented and beautiful. Let us know what you think when it arrives :o)
