Sleek Blush By 3 Pumpkin

Ok this week Sleek's Blush by 3 landed in store. Now I had an idea something was up as I was rummaging around the secret draws of my local superdrug on the Sunday and saw said items boxed up. (In my defence I waited for staff but they weren't around, security said I could have a look as long as I didn't steal anything - what a nice young man!).

So during some down time I went in and came across their latest offering, Blush by 3.

I quickly chose Pumpkin; I love me some orange blush on my skin but as I passed on Aruba last year, living to regret it ever since, Lantern stood out to me as being a possible substitute. This morning I finally go around to swatching it and thought I'd put it up for you all to see.

Each palette contains two different shades and textures: two matt and one shimmer. In keeping with Sleek's MO, all are highly pigmented and thus women of colour friendly. You will need to pay around with them and I recommend a light hand with them all at first.  Please note that I have swatched them heavily in order for it to show on the camera so if it looks powdery then please forgive me.

The colours:

P Pie = Shimmer coral with red  / gold undertones
Squash = Matt pink - with blue undertones - nice baby pink
Lantern = Matt Orange - this palette gets its name from the pumpkin colour of this shade. I love it, I have Pan Tao and find it blah, this shade ignites my fire and I am looking forward to rocking it in spring.

Check out http://thatgurlwho.co.uk/2012/02/sleek-blush-by-3-in-pumpkin-pie-swatches-and-comparisons/ post, as she has made some smart comparisons between this and the existing (permanent) ranges.

These blushes are limited edition and only sold at Superdrug. For my lighter skinned ladies I would suggest you run out and grab LACE as it is selling out fast and looks beautiful on your skin.

I have already decided to go back and get Flame so will post swatches in the week.

What do you think, another winner by Sleek?


  1. Isn't this an awesome product? I love it. I can't decide if I like Squash or P-Pie more right now.

    Linking to my post is fine.

    Good luck getting starting on your blog. Its looking great so far!

  2. I love Sleek so so much and I can't wait for the day when they arrive to the States. Lovin' your swatches!

    1. Thank you, I feel the same about USA brands: Covergirl Queen - Bronzer, WetnWild and Makeup Forever are just a few of the brands I have on my wish list.

  3. wow, these blushes are outrageously awesome!!!
