Hopefully by the end of the year I'd like to own at least one palette from Sleek and one single blush!
This I got through the help of my friend, Becky's, make up artist cousin who came to visit us during our graduation back in june! Becky has a lovely blog here on blogspot too, check her out here!
Continue below for the review and swatches!

|Sleek Blush by 3 in lace: Chantily, Guipure, Crochet|
|Chantily is a strong true matte orange. Guirupe is a rose gold shade with plenty of fine gold shimmer. Crochet is a true matte cherry scarlet.|
|I love how the palette fits in the hand, its sturdy and contains a lot of product despite the slim packaging!|
Packaging & Product!
The packaging of Sleek products very much resembles that of NARS and Elf, solid black compacts with a mirror inside. It feels sturdy and the mirror is a very good size. I see no faults in the packaging to be honest. It's simple and good.
Oh my! The blushes themselves are amazing! In terms of products like this, I go completely on the reviews of people, the overwhelming number of them who have done reviews and tested them out and this is not a let down. The quality, pigmentation and price of these blush palettes are great.
This palette has three warm shades, Chantily is a matte medium orange, Guirupe which is a peach with a gold sheen and Crochet a matte cherry red. They work really well even on a light complexion like myself. Use a large soft brush and build up color on the cheek to temples slowly.
Without a doubt these are highly pigmented and go on very smoothly, I even would use Guirupe as an eyeshadow. These are to be used with a light hand as its too easy to over apply.
|Swatched Sleek Blush by 3 in lace: Chantily, Guirupe, Crochet|
|My simple look using luscious lani and crochet from the Blush by 3 palette!|
|A light foundation, a bright eye and the tiniest touch of crochet on the cheeks. Even though its so bright in the pan and swatch, the lightest touch on the cheeks blended up can make a lovely flush!|
|A good amount of Guirupe from the blush by 3 palette in lace on my cheeks, its a peachy pink with fine golden shimmer through it resulting in the highlight on my cheeks.|
Recommend: If you can get this or order this, these palettes are so affordable and so pigmented. Their finishes are beautiful both matte and luminous. This palette and 'Pumpkin' I think are the most versatile for everyone.
Repurchase: Yes but another palette, I'd love to get 'Pink Sprint'! It's full of intense raspberry, pink shades!
Bottom line: Amazing quality and such fantastic colors and at an affordable price, these blush trios are so worth it!
