Sleek Sugar Palette!

Sorry for being a bit absent from this blog! My life is super busy right now with moving, work and various other pickles I've gotten myself into. I promise to TRY to stay on the bandwagon but posting may be a bit sporadic!

Today, I'd like to share a very special palette: the Sleek Blush by 3 palette in Sugar!

I was very excited to receive this palette because of a) the rave reviews it has been receiving b) Getting Cheeky's post on it and c) the blushes in this palette aren't super common (AKA, Coral are everywhere lately!).


Here's the palette in all its glory. The colors from left to right are Turbinado, Muscovado and Demerara.
I love the compact and clean design of the palette. It makes it perfect for traveling.

Swatched lighty, left to right in Turbinado (very light shimmer), Muscovado (shimmer) and Demerara (as far as I can tell, matte).

Swatches more heavily, same order.

These blushes are excellent. They stay on all day, and I've personally been taken with Demerara as a neutral cheek color. I usually wear it with a smokey/heavy eye and it is perfect. While my Pumpkin Pie palette is more pigmented than the Sugar palette, I find the Sugar palette easier to work with and the colors more wearable. I get the feeling that Turbinado will be my go to in the fall!

I also love that this palette is a blush palette - it's quite difficult to find a blush palette on the market that is compact and has quality blushes. This is definitely the best I've encountered and will be very handy when I'm traveling.

Have you discovered any beauty palettes lately that you like? Let me know - I can't get enough of them!

Hope you all had a great weekend!
