Sleek Blush by 3: pink lemonade

 

Hello lovelies!

Recently I popped into Superdrug to buy some essentials and just as I was going to the checkout the hard to resist sleek counter caught me eye.

 I've only ever tried one of their products, that being a lip-gloss, and despite hearing great things I never really came across purchasing any more of their products. However, as I was browsing through their collection I was super excited to find one of their new Blush by 3 palettes. The one I decided to invest in was 'Pink Lemonade', which comes with three beautiful pink shades - definitely right up my street!


 I am a huge fan of blush as I think that it can change up your whole look- if I think I'm looking a bit tired or dull there's nothing better than a gorgeous shimmery blush to 'wake' me up! I have heard so many good reviews on sleek and so I had high standards for this product and it certainly did not disappoint.

This palette comes with two shimmery powder blushes and one cream blush, all in gorgeous pink shades. The two powder blushes; icing sugar and pink mint are very pigmented so only a small amount is needed to give you a subtle flush of colour. Icing sugar is a beautiful blue toned pink with golden shimmer through it, this I would definitely recommend to anyone with pale skin as the blue tones are extremely flattering whilst the golden shimmer adds just the right amount of warmth. Pink mint is a much warmer, almost coral pink also with a golden shimmer through it, again this is a very flattering colour!

I've never been a big fan of cream blushes as I have always found them to be a bit too 'heavy' on my skin however I stood corrected when I tried out macaroon. The colour of this one is amazing and flatters my skin tone perfectly. It is the perfect consistency, perfect colour and in all honesty the best blush. ever. The colour is a fairly neutral pink and so can be worn underneath other blushes or alone for a more subtle look. It blends out really well and leaves a slight dewy finish. perfect!

Thankyou so much for reading!

I really hope you enjoyed!
