Sleek Blush By 3 Sweet Cheek Review N Swatches

Posted by Amani Zaara at 02:05
Hello everyone,
I no m being very lazy these days n I apologize for that. M busy with some shopping n outings n getting tired by the end of the day with no energy left for blogging.. But as promised back with the review of this lovely blusher palette from sleek.

So let's start with the review,



Price: 14.99$ for 20gm around 922 rupees.

Product claims:

  • Each shade can be used alone, or layered for a unique look.
  • Each palette has a versatile selection of shades to take your makeup from day to night and keep it on trend from season to season.

    How to use:

    Using a blusher or contour brush, layer the varying shades to build intensity, or apply alone heavily for a burst of full-on colour.

    Packaging:



                                                  L-r cupcake,  dolly mix & candy floss

    Comes in standard black matte casing similar to that of other Sleek products , it's actually very sleek and classy palette containing three different shades of blushes. The brand name is embossed in glossy writing on the top of the case, the flip cover of the palette contains a decent sized mirror all over the cover which I find very useful n big enough to use.. It's very travel friendly n compact to use n carry.. There is no brush provided in the palette which I actually don't mind as I prefer using my own brushes.

    My take on the product: 

    This limited edition blush trio is part of the Candy Collection released by Sleek on the 5th of June 2013. But fortunately it's still being sold online.
    This palette consist of pretty pink shades in different textures n finish.. Matte, shimmer n cream blush..
    The shades are names very cutely keeping it's theme collection in mind. The three shades have been named as cupcake, dolly mix & candy floss..



    Cupcake: 

    This is a cream blush. A bright pink shade with blue undertones. M not a fan of cream blushes but after using this I may change my opinion.. It's Avery pretty shade n also leaves a very dewy finish. It makes the skin look healthy n gives a flushed glow to the cheeks.. Can b worn anytime day or evening looks superb throughout..

    Dolly Mix:

    This is a powder blush n it is the lightest shade in the palette.. It's a beautiful very light lilac shade with cool undertones.. It's a very pretty daily wear shade n can b worn for simple day look. It gives u a very clean and minimal makeup look.

    Candy Floss:

     A bright pink-almost-red shade with yellow undertones. It had very tiny gold shimmer in it, giving it a shimmer finish; it is also a powder blush. This might look very dark in the palette but isn't that dark once u apply it.. This shade can b worn for evening parties or day wear. Looks good n the shimmer is not very shimmery it's very subtle n gives a healthy balance.


    No doubt sleek blushes are famous for their pigmentation. All three are extremely pigmented n can give u enough color in just single swipe.. 
    U need to b very light handed to use these blushes as these might become too much if u apply heavily n u might end up looking like a clown.. But u can always lighten them with a clean brush. 
    Thus in pigmentation it's more than amazing n as very little can go a long way these might last very long which is again a good thing. 
    The affordable prices makes them much more loving as three blushes with such good quality in juz 922 rupees!!!
    The lasting power is again amazing , they can last for about 7 to 8 hours n might start fading after that.. I Hv used them for abt 7 hrs n they were as I applied until I took them off.

    Overall verdict: 

    Amazing, awesomely pigmented, long lasting n absolutely lovely colors..

    Cons: None

    Will I purchase again:

    If at all I loose my palette I might otherwise I don't need to as they will last very long. N I wud definitely try more shades from the range..

    Rating: 5/5

    The shades are very pretty. Will be a tad too pink for my dusky skin tone.

    Indeed it's a lovely palette but yes it's more for a cool n fair skin tones but dusky n warm ones can use the shade candy floss.. But other might go waste..
