Sleek Makeup: Blush by 3 - Sugar and Pink Sprint

Sleek Makeup just released these blush palettes called blush BY 3 that's available at Superdrug for a limited time only. Each palette comes with three different colours that are very pigmented. The packaging is great, as with all Sleek packaging: small, thin and travel-friendly. There are five different palettes in total called Sugar, Lace, Pumpkin, Flame and Pink Sprint. I only bought Sugar and Pink Sprint but I really want Lace (but it was cleaned out at the Superdrug that I went to, so I'm on the hunt!). 

Continue reading for swatches of Sugar and Pink Sprint :)

For a drugstore brand, Sleek has the most pigmented blushers out there. One swipe and you get a great colour payoff and these Blush By 3 palettes are no exception (and of course they are very affordable too!). All three blushers in Pink Sprint are matte and of course very pigmented. Don't be put off by the colour - with a light hand, they're actually quite wearable and very buildable too if you want the boldness of the colours to come out.

Sugar - (Left to right: Turbinado, Muscovado, Demerara)

Sugar comes with one shimmery blusher which is the middle one called Muscovado. In the pan, Turbinado has very tiny specks of shimmer in it but when swatched it's not noticeable. I think this palette is quite a good day-to-night palette to have with you if you're on the go. During the day, with a light touch of Turbinado you get a natural flush of red to your cheeks or you could go with Demerara which if you're prefer a blush with a more peach undertone. Then for a night look, you could sweep a thin layer of Muscovado to give your cheeks a bit of shimmer/highlight.

Overall, I think these Sleek blush palettes are great and they remind me a little bit of the NARS Danmari blush palette. If you happen to pass by a Superdrug definitely go check them out before they are sold out.
