I have professed my love for Sleek products before. I talked about the Aruba Blush and the Contour Kit that I still use daily and love. I had been lusting over the Sleek Blush By 3 palettes as soon as they got out but for some reason (I think I had busted my beauty budget at the time) I didn’t get them for months. But when I did FINALLY get’em, well, I wasn’t disappointed. Look at these colors.
The Flame palette is in the red range and actually is a little less pigmented than the Pumpkin palette. It has two matte colors and a shimmery one. The two colors you can see on the two left fingers in the picture look extremely bright but with a light hand you get a gorgeous effect every time. Even on the days when I get excited and accidentally lay a bit too much color on my cheeks, the formula blend in easily and I’m able to tone it down. Needless to say these red look gorgeous on black skin but I’m pretty sure it would look beautiful on every skin tone…except maybe on extremely pale skin but even so, with a light hand, it’ll work. The color on the finger on the right is a pretty pale color and does not really show up on my dark skin it is a color I don’t really use a lot.
The Pumpkin (right hand on the swatch palette has a bright almost neon orange color that is exactly the same as my beloved Aruba blush (which was a limited edition, so thank you Sleek!) and the third one is the only one with shimmer. It is sort of a copperish-pink lovely color. The pink is also extremely bright, almost neon, and looks wonderful on dark skin as well.
These palettes are simply beautiful. If you are building up your make up collection and want to get beautiful and great quality blushes, these are the best choices.
