REVIEW: Sleek MakeUP Blush by 3: Sweet Cheeks!

If there's one thing I am OBSESSED with from Sleek MakeUP it's their blushes for sure! The singles are absolutely fantastic and with their amazing pigmentation and lasting power, it would be a shame if the newer trios would be anything short of that. So is the Blush by 3 in Sweet Cheeks just as good with better value for money?



Pretty packaging - check! Amazing pigmentation- check! Great lasting power- CHECK! All in a sleek and travel friendly little palette, with the cutest names to match! I think these are even greater value for money than their singles!

Sweet Cheeks is the only Blush by 3 I own, but I have also happened to have swatched the Pumpkin palette that a friend owns and needless to say, these carry on the legacy of Sleek blushes and their amazing performance. They give higher priced competitors a run for their money without exaggeration and this particular trio includes three gorgeous colors, namely:

Cupcake - A bright  blue basedbubblegum pink creme formula.
Dollymix - A soft lilac matte powder blush.
Candyfloss - A satiny yellow based pinky red powder.

Cupcake is extremely pigmented and incredibly smooth! It's such a delight to swatch this or apply it on the face. Blends easily and leaves a healthy, dewy glow, not to mention it doubles up as a gorgeous lip color and its also stains slightly so the lasting power is really good! Dollymix seemed a bit powdery upon initial swatching and it may bother some that there's a creme blush right next to a couple of powders because there may be fallout eventually sticking to Cupcake, but upon application Dollymix too has exceptionally well pigmentation and goes on smooth! Candyfloss is also super smooth, and the color pay off is just phenomenal! It's a beautiful satin finish so this blush has that little bit of 'life' to it without being too shimmery. All three last incredibly long as well. I find that they last 6-8 hours on me depending on weather and application, before they start to fade away or I need a touch up, which is also easy considering how compact the palette is making it easier to have 3 options in one while on the go!

All in all, a winner! Sweet Cheeks doesn't disappoint! It's very versatile despite the fact that it can deceivingly come across as a monotonous set of pink blushes. I love how you get a purely matte, a satin and a creamy glowy finish blush all in one, each that can be worn subtle or heavy.This one's a limited edition from the Sleek MakeUP Candy Collection so I suggest all pink blush fanatics grab this asap! It's also available at Beauty Hub in Pakistan for PKR 1800.

LOVES:
-Pigmentation.
-Packaging.
-Portability.
-Great color & finish variety.


DISLIKES:

-Limited Edition.
-Difficult to get off the Sleek website because of payment issues.

My Rating:
5/5: Deserves a full on five and a standing ovation!
