I love a Sleek blush - rarely will you find anything more bold, bright and pigmented, so when I spotted two new blush by 3 palettes had been released, I needed to get my hands on them.
The two new palettes for this spring / summer are Californ.I.A and Pink Lemonade and they both contain bright but very wearable shades in hues of summery pink and orange.
Pink Lemonade is my favourite of the two palettes - generally I reach for a pinky blush on most days anyway, plus this palette has two powder blush shades, which I generally find easier to wear than creme blush as there's less effort involved!
The shades from left to right are icing sugar (powder), macaroon (creme) and pink mint (powder). Icing sugar is my favourite and it's already been quite well used. Applied lightly it gives a really lovely bright pink glow with just a hint of sparkle.
Californ.I.A is an all creme blush palette, which usually I wouldn't go for as generally I've powdered my foundation before I think about blush and by then it's too late to wear a creme product! However I made an exception for this palette because I really like the colours. As soon as the sun comes out for spring I start to go a little bit coral crazy, and this palette has two beautiful coraly tones as well as a pretty peach shade.
From left to right these are Newport Peach, The surf and OC. All three are very pretty shades and because they're creme textures it's easier not to go overboard and apply too much. The surf surprised me as my favourite of these three - it gives more glow than colour, and really adds an extra 'pop' to a bronzed face.
Sleek's blush by 3 palettes are £9.99 each and you can get them at Boots where they're currently on 3 for 2.
