Sleek Blush by 3 Palette Review (Pumpkin)

I am sure you all know about my love for Sleek Makeup products. I particularly love their eyeshadows and blushes because they are super pigmented and work so well for a variety of skin tones. The Sleek Blush by 3 palettes were launched a few years ago but I have no idea why I never picked it up. I think it’s mainly because I was not really a blush girl (all that has changed now). I have now built a little collection of blushes which are all mainly from the drugstore. I may splurge on one or two  high end brushes at some point particularly NARS and MAC.. Anyway, this post is all centred around this beautiful blush palette by Sleek- The Sleek Blush by 3 Palette in Pumpkin 363.

I won’t waste too much time describing the packaging as I have done so several times. It comes in a matte black casing which is the same size as the Sleek Face Form. I just like that some products are the same size because it means I can store them together. I love these blush palettes because they are very handy for travelling. It has been my go-to blush palette at home and when I travel. It also comes with a nice sizeable mirror which means you can store this in your makeup bag for makeup on the go. I just love products that provide a nice mirror in fact, I prefer it to any dodgy makeup brush.

The first impression I had of this palette was “what an amazing selection of bright and vivid colours”. I know the colours/shades may seem scary on first impression but they are really beautiful when you use them well. You just need a light hand for application and you are good to go.  In this palette, you get three blushes- P-Pie (Pumpkin Pie), Squash and Lantern. Each blush contains a little over 6g of product which brings the palette to a total of 20g.

Lantern- I absolutely love this shade because it is like a nice mix of the other two blushes in the palette. It is a gorgeous light red/coral shade with a nice luminous glow. I really like how different this looks on various people and I think it would also be perfect for Autumn
Squash- I would describe Squash as a mid-neutral pink shade which I particularly like. I find it a little difficult to find a nice pink blush that suits my skin tone because most pink blushes I find are cool tones. This one is a mid-neutral tone which makes it suitable for a variety of skin tones.
Pumpkin Pie- it is a bright orange shade with a semi-matte finish. It is really such a vivid colour and stands out from the palette and I think the name really befits it. I feel it would look gorgeous on any skin tone and it looks really flattering on my darker skin tone (it reminds me of Sleek’s limited edition blush in Aruba)

This palette is definitely the perfect palette for Spring and Summer because the shades are so colourful.  I find that it is difficult to track some of these palettes down in the drug store but I think Superdrug has improved their stock. When I popped in-store, I think they had the complete set of these Blush by 3 Palettes- Pumpkin, Lace, Sugar, California, Flame, Pink Spirit and Pink Spirit. The only ones that stood out to me were Sugar, Lace and Pumpkin. I may go back and pick up the rest when there is an offer.

Oh my goodness!! I have always known that Sleek Blushes are pigmented as I own a few of them but this is one is super pigmented. It applies so easily and really well that you always have to use a light hand. I can’t even decide which shade is my favourite are because I love them all. I find myself gravitating towards Lantern and Pumpkin Pie because they look most flattering on me.  They feel so buttery to touch and there are minimal fallouts which I am super impressed with. Lantern and Squash have some slight glitter in them but it translates to the skin as a luminous glow.

How I use/Application
I normally use my Sephora Pro Airbrush #55 for all my blushes but it is not the best for this palette. It picks up too much product and I don’t want to end up looking like a made up clown. I prefer to use my Real Techniques Blush Brush because it picks up the right amount of blush which is subtle. I also love to use my Nanshy Blush Brush because it also does an amazing job and its fluffy bristles help blend the blushes really well. You really need to have a light hand with these blushes because a little goes a long way

I always use a primer underneath my makeup and set my entire face with a setting powder and I feel it helps increase the longevity of my makeup. I find that the blushes in the Pumpkin Palette last for almost 6 hours. It starts to fade a little after a while but I still catch hints of it when I get home. It all depends on how you apply it. I don’t have a problem with its longevity at all and I am so pleased with this palette. I reckon it would last even longer if I go in with a heavy hand but it’s not my style at all.

The Sleek Blush by 3 Palette retails for £9.99 and I think it is such an unbeatable price given the quality. I love everything about this blush starting from the packaging down to the products. They are usually offers in Boots and Superdrug where you can get them for cheaper via their 3 for 2 offers or Buy one get half price offers. You can also purchase them directly from the Sleek website here (UK) and here (USA).

Overall Thoughts
I definitely look forward to trying other Sleek Blush by 3 Palettes. I have my eyes on Sugar and Lace and I may be picking them up soon. I have nothing bad to say about this palette and I am so pleased with the choice of shades in this palette. I am well and truly impressed. Have you tried any Sleek by 3 Blush Palettes?...xx

    1. Hahaha, I have made mistakes a few times so I just use a powder over it. I think it is so important to use a fluffy brush that picks the product up really lightly like the Real Techniques Blush brush. That's my go-to brush for this palette and it's very hard to get it wrong...Thanks for stopping over....xx
