Sleek Blush By Three: Lace

Way back in February when I was at IMATS, Leanne and I discovered that Sleek were soon bringing out blush trios. I'm all for bright make up, but blush is where I usually draw the line as I'm always a bit scared I'll end up looking like a rather scary clown! Don't get me wrong, the Sleek Blush by Three trios are beautiful to look at but I knew as a paley, there'd only really be one palette that would suit me. Which obviously means it would be sold out everywhere. I did eventually manage to get my hands on one and I picked up Lace.




The three shades in the Lace palette are Crochet, Guipure and Chantilly. Now I'm assuming as you open the palette the shades are from left to right Crochet, Guipute and Chantilly. So that's how the swatching in  this post will work. If you know any different, please let me know :)

Left to right: Crochet, Guipure and Chantilly

Crochet and Chantilly are matte shades and Guipure is a shimmer finish. They're all absolutely gorgeous and I know I'll be getting a lot of wear out of these this summer. I'll let you in on a secret. This is currently on holiday with me. All my other trusty blushes are sat at home. Aren't I good?

I noticed Guipure looked exactly like the infamous Rose Gold so I put them side by side to compare


Rose Gold looks darker but we'll let the swatches do the talking ;)

Swatches

Top to bottom: Chantilly, Guipure and Crochet (heavily swatched)

Top to bottom: Chantilly, Guipure and Crochet (blended out)

Top to bottom: Rose Gold, Guipure (heavily swatched)

Top to bottom: Rose Gold, Guipure (blended out)

Rose Gold looks slightly more on the pink side, but if you've been lusting after it and can't find it, Guipure is probably the closest dupe you'll find.

I absolutely love this palette and I know it'll see me through the summer. And for £10 you really can't go wrong.

Have you picked up any of the Blush by 3 palettes?

  5. So gorgeous! I think this is the palette most people could pull off. 'Crochet' looks a lot like 'Life's a Peach' blush, too.
