Review: SLEEK MAKEUP Blush By 3 in Lace

Christmas season is finally here which means colder weather. But sometimes the cold weather can make your skin look dull. Not everyone is gifted with rosy cheeks, but it's a good thing you can fake it with blush. I believe that every woman should at least have 2 pairs of blush, a dainty pink one that's perfect for a natural look and a rosy red one to make you look blushing the whole day. The orange blush is a plus for that sun kissed coral look.

Christmas season is also about shopping which means a ton of bazaars. But this year, I only went to the Noel Bazaar at the World Trade Center. I purchased this blush trio from Updated Trends. It was on sale for 10% off, I thought it was good deal because I've read a lot of reviews online and it had three blushes, THREE BLUSHES FOR 765!!! What could possibly be a better deal than that?!

According to the website:
Blush by 3 is the ultimate palette offering you three times the impact in one neat little compact. With three complementary shades each designed with its own unique finish, from rich shimmers to intensely deep and bright show stopping matte shades. Heads will turn! Blush by 3 in Lace is perfect for all skin tones, offers a matte or shimmery highlight finish.

I love how pigmented the blushes are, plus they glide on easily, and blending isn't a hassle. One layer can instantly add a glow to your face, it's not buildable though. The colors compliment almost every skin color. The matte shades look so natural. The shimmery shade gives a dewy glow, some say that this is a dupe for Nars' Orgasm, but I can't tell since I don't have the latter. Staying time is amazing because it lasted me about 5 hours with minimal fading. It's also not chalky and there are no fall outs.


  • Pigmented
  • Value for money
  • The mirror included is great
  • Staying time

  • Only available online

Will I repurchase? Yes, when I've hit pan and I'll probably purchase other shades.

Overall, this is a great palette especially for those who are building their professional makeup kit. The price makes it so muh better!
