REVIEW:- Sleek Blush by 3 in Lace

Sleek Blush by 3 - Lace - £9.99 - Here.
Hello Everyone,
I have a review for you today from one of my newly favourite brands Sleek.  I have only recently got into Sleek as they are only based in Superdrug and until recently it wasn't really a shop I ventured into frequently.
I have reviewed on of there individual blushers for you already but today I am going to talk to you about one of there blusher palettes.  The Sleek blusher palettes are titled Blush by 3 because they each come with three blushers which are around the same size as the individual ones.  Each Blush by 3 then has its own name.  This one is called Lace.
The lace palette includes 2 matte blushers and one with a slight shimmer running through it.  The pictures really do not do it justice.  The Sleek blushers are so pigmented it is just unreal.  This one contains 3 orange toned blushers.
The one on the left is called Chantily and is a paler orange toned blush.  This is one of the matte colours within this palette and is beautiful on its own to add a delicate orange hue to the apples of your cheeks.
The one in the middle is called Guipure and is the shimmery blusher within the palette.  The shimmer is not over-powering so won't leave you looking like a disco ball, it just adds a beautiful shimmer sheen to your cheeks.  This is the more pink toned blusher within the palette with a gorgeous golden shimmer.
The colour to the right is called Crochet and is the final matte colour within the palette.  It is a gorgeous orange toned red and the darkest colour of all three.

Chantily is at the top.
Guipure is in the middle.
Crochet is at the bottom.
The palette is a good sized and comes in sleek black thin packaging so perfect for travel to enable you to get a variety of looks from just one item.  One side of the palette holds the blushers and the other is taken up with a decent sized mirror ideal for applying on the go.
The blushers are each highly pigmented and a little goes a long way so be careful when applying.  It is easier to add more than it is to take away.  They each look stunning on there own but I like to mix all three to create a truly pretty cheek look.
I start with the lighter of the two matte shades and use this to blend a  nice patch of colour along my cheeks and cheek bone.  I then take the shimmer colour and use this to high light and accentuate my cheek bones.  I finally take the darker of the two matte shades to define the apples of my cheeks and make them more prominent.  The colours really compliment each other well.
Another brilliant thing with the Sleek blushers is the longevity of them.  For a high street brand they have amazing staying power and though the colour is certainly not as strong at the end of the day as when I started the colour is still very obviously there.
A true gem from the high street world.
Thanks for reading,
Speak Soon,
