So let’s just throw it all out there, shall we?
This product is: blush, British, AND affordable! So basically the Sleek Makeup “Sweet Cheeks” Blush by 3 palette is absolutely perfect!
This limited edition palette comes with three blush pans, one cream and two powder, that can be used together or independently to create a variety of looks. The pigmentation is absolutely wonderful and the texture of each color/finish is a dream to work with.
Candy Floss, the cream blush, is a cool toned berry shade that can be used lightly for a sheer wash of color but it can also be built up for a more dramatic look. The texture isn’t greasy at all and it blends into the skin easily. It’s pretty fantastic!
Dolly Mix, the second pan in the palette, looked a bit violet to me on the website but when I saw it in person I noticed that it was a cool toned baby pink. It does have a bit of a lavender undertone to it but the base color is most definitely pink. It is absolutely perfect for a soft, feminine look and would look absolutely fantastic on fair to medium skintones. If you have darker skin I worry that this might look a bit ashy since it is so light. The texture is silky and smooth, though, so Dolly Mix is definitely a great quality product.
Cupcake, the final color in the palette, is a bright coral with a slight red undertone. This color is incredibly pigmented (like the rest of the shades in the palette) so be sure to use a very light hand! Luckily the texture of Cupcake is smooth and easy to blend so if you accidentally overdo it you’ll be able to buff it out with ease.

I was a little nervous to place this order since I hadn’t ordered anything from the UK since moving back to the States last fall. I am inherently impatient so I was thinking that I’d have to pay tons of money only to wait for weeks on end to get my products. Let me just tell you, if you have these reservations, don’t worry about it! I ordered this palette (among other products – review to come soon) on a Monday and I came home on Saturday to see that it had been delivered. It took only 6 days to get from the UK to my apartment in New York. Crazy, right? The other crazy part of this whole thing is that shipping was only $4.95! I’m not even exaggerating. Shipping was less then $5.00 and I got my package in less than a week. I pay more and wait longer for packages shipped within the US, haha!
This was my first Blush by 3 palette from Sleek and I am completely obsessed with it! The quality is amazing and the price is definitely right so I think this would be a great addition to anyone’s makeup collection. Add that to the fact that their shipping policy is amazing and I can honestly say that I’ll be placing more orders from Sleek ASAP. You all know how much I’m obsessed with British makeup 🙂
The Sleek Blush by 3 Palettes retail for $12.49 USD and can be purchased from the official Sleek Makeup website. The Sweet Cheeks palette is limited edition and was released with their summer “Candy” collection so if you’re interested in it be sure to snatch it up soon! I can definitely see this one selling out quickly.
Until next time 🙂
