Sleek Makeup Blushes Review: Rose Gold, Sunrise and Blush by 3 in Lace

Sleek Makeup are one of my favourite makeup brands. I have been using Sleek's blushes for a long time and a review on them is overdue!
Sleek produce individual blushes and a blush trio. The blushes are very pigmented and there are a wide variety of shades in both matt and shimmers. Sleek have 8 different Blush by 3 palettes and 12 single blushes to choose from. They also have a Crème to Powder blush range which I have yet to try.
I will be reviewing Blush by 3 in Lace and single blushes Rose Gold and Sunrise.




Swatches of Lace Palette
Lace has one shimmer and two matte blushers. The shades are wearable and flattering for fair to medium skin tones. Crochet  is a matte orange, Guipure is a shimmery peachy pink with golden shimmer and Chantilly is a matte coral pink.  I love the luminous glow it gives which really brightens my cheek bones. I love wearing these colours during the summer months and I have also used them as eyeshadows too. The pigmentation is amazing and they last the majority of the day.

Rose Gold is one of Sleek's most popular blushes. It's also a dupe for Nars Orgasm blush. I would describe this shade as peachy-pink with golden highlights. The texture is soft and very easy to blend. Rose gold is one of my favourite blushes and is perfect to wear day or night.

Sunrise blush looks like a dark brown in the pan but it can look different on the skin. It has a deep flush of reddish pink and bronze with fine gold shimmers. Like the Rose Gold it wears quite long on my skin, lasting about six hours. It doesn’t oxidize nor cause any breakouts on my face.
