Sleek Blush By 3 in Lace #367

Sleek is one of those brands that I think always looks fantastic (like Bourjois).  I'm sure that my curiosity is driven mostly by the fact that Sleek isn't readily available in the US.  I've been lucky enough to have a couple of swaps with lovely ladies from the UK, so I do have several Sleek eyeshadow palettes (which I LOVE) and a pressed powder (also LOVE).

I hesitate to say that I have a problem with blush.  Because I feel like that implies that I do think it's actually a problem (it's not!) or that I plan to stop or cut back or restrain myself in some way (I do NOT).  I love blush.  I love everything about blush.  I love cream blush and powder blush and liquid blush.

I. Love.  Blush.

So when I saw the Sleek Blush By 3s in several YouTube tutorials from my favorite UK beauty gurus, I was green with envy.  They looked awesome and affordable.

I finally sucked it up and decided to place an online order with Sleek.  I picked up several things, but the first of which was the Sleek Blush By 3 in #367, Lace.

(L-R Crochet, Guipure, Chantilly)

Crochet is a light orange with a matte finish.  It was very soft and blendable with excellent color payoff.

Guipure is a neutral pink satin base with gold glitter.  Sheered out, you lose most of the pink and end up with mostly glitter.  It's not peachy enough to be a dupe for NARS Orgasm, but it's very much in that vein.

Chantilly is an orange/red with a matte finish.  Like Crochet, it was very soft and blendable with excellent color payoff.  I don't have NARS Taj Mahal, but the online swatches look pretty similar.

The Sleek Blush By 3 palette contains a whopping 20 grams of product and retails for $12.49 from

Overall: 10/10
