Bargain Beauty For A Healthy Glow: Sleek Cream Blush-By-3 Palette

Bronzer can help contour, highlighter can add a touch of light, but a great blusher can help our skin to radiate a healthy glow from within. I’m a huge fan of blush, using it to add natural contrast and tonality to my otherwise whiter-than-white complexion; a touch of colour on the cheeks can also wipe years of our faces (as we naturally associate flushed cheeks with youth) so it’s a great tool to have within your repertoire. I have a huge number of blush palettes and boxes within my collection, never overlooking the power of a quick swipe across the apples of cheeks, but this Sleek Blush-By-3 trio offers an affordable alternative that provides a healthy spring-appropriate glow.

Although peachy-coral tones may be somewhat overwhelming to the majority of people, they’re actually much more natural than traditional pink shades that cause too much contrast against a nude base; the eyes are drawn to the apples of cheeks rather than focusing on your sultry eyes or powerful pout, which is not what we want! By using a peach shade you can help colour subtly glow from within, creating a much more understated and healthy looking complexion. This trio of colour offers three complementary shades that are universally appealing and work on practically all skin tones, especially when buffed in with a lightweight face brush.

The formula offers a super lightweight and blendable texture that turns from a
delicate cream into a velvety powder finish upon application, ensuring it’s really easy to apply and buff into skin for an invisible makeup line. I’m already a fan of the Sleek blush powder trios, but this cream texture works exceptionally well with dewy foundations or upon naked skin – or in my case beneath a very light dusting of powder to set it in place and minimise shine. Although they work well with a brush when buffed into cheeks, you can also get a great result with your index and middle finger by dabbing product and massaging it into skin. (Shhh, don’t tell anyone I said that!)

Benefit’s Majorette is definitely one of my favourite blushers of the moment, but this trio of colour offers a very similar result for half the price (£10.00 vs £23.50.) If you’re in the market for a new blusher, want to investigate the benefit of cream blushers over powder formulas, or simply can’t stretch to justifying the price tag attached to a Benefit product, Sleek offer this as a fabulous alternative that I can’t really fault. Just make sure you build up the colour gently rather than going in all guns blazing, blending into skin to create a finish that looks truly natural.

    I love Sleek products, especially their blushes. I have one of these trios in a candy variety, they're so pigmented and are really a lovely set of blushes.alice x | beautybyalicee

    I really want to play around with some peach shade blushes but cream blushes have always scared me, I don't know why, I think I worry they'll clump on instead of blend out, but for £10 I'd be prepared to give it a go and play around with it! I have a few eye palettes by Sleek and love them SO much, I'd pick them over some of the higher end brands any day!Sarah :)Saloca in Wonderland

    I was actually trying these out in store today! I had my heart set on the powder version of lace, but when I felt how silky the cream one was I couldn't chose and ended up with neither (should have just got both, haha) Lexmorrisa x

    I love these blushes, they last for such a long time too. I'm so pale and need a long lasting blush, especially working 12 hours shifts. I find these tones really flattering on all skin colours too.
