Sleek Blush By 3 in Pink Lemonade

Sleek's Blush By 3 compacts came out quite a while ago, and they'd been on my mental wish list until I popped into my local Tesco and found that they have a Sleek stand.  Which means my weekly shop will, from now on, include a bit of highly pigmented, well priced goodness hidden under the Special K.

Blush By 3, unsurprisingly, contains three shades of blush in two formulas - powder and cream.  All three are highly pigmented (as we've come to expect from Sleek), and the two powder blushes come with a hefty smack of sparkly goodness for good measure.

Pink Lemonade contains Icing Sugar, a shimmering neutral pink powder blush; Macaroon, a mid-pink cream blush; and the bafflingly named Pink Mint, a shimmery sunset pink with strong tawny tones.

Swatched, all three are indeed super-pigmented, with Macaroon bringing the most opaque colour.

And here I am wearing Pink Mint, which is a lovely shade for brightening and warming the face without going for bronzer.  I've applied a fairly light smattering of product here, but the powder blushers are easily layered to a point - too heavy and you get that overly metallic robot-shimmer that looks good on no-one.

This little mirrored compact costs just £9.99 - not bad for three reasonably sized pans of blusher with enough pigmentation to ensure you won't use the lot too quickly.  My only gripe is that the cream product is slap bang in between two powder products - meaning any fallout (and you will get fallout, these blushers are seriously soft) will settle straight onto the cream product.  Still, at £3.33 a blush, you're getting a lot for your money, packaging concerns aside.  Find it now at Sleek stands and online via the Sleek website.
