I’ve been a fan of the brand Sleek since I was a pre-teen. Given, yes that they weren’t as slick as they are now with their packaging and new releases. But one thing that they have always gotten right, is their blushes. As a dark skinned girl, there is a permanent struggle with getting the right shade of blush that won’t look ashy once you apply it and blend it in. If you’re as melanated as I am – Sleek has got your back!
While Sleek make amazing single blushes in a wide range of colours, I really love the concept that they created with the Blush By 3 – essentially a 3-pan blush palette in a mix of colours and finishes. There are a number of different combinations, all with complementary colourways. I already have the Sugar palette and I love it, so picking up the one in Pink Sprint was a no-brainer.
Pink Sprint is a beautiful trio of pink blushes, all with matte finishes. Left to right they are – Pink Parfait, Pink Ice and Pinktini. As with all Sleek blushes, the pigmentation packs a punch. But trust me when I say this – a little goes a LONG WAY! You literally only need the tiniest amount for this to show up on your face, and a little too much excitement will result in you looking like you’ve been hit with a powder paintball.
Formula-wise, these are definitely very powdery and you’ll definitely get a kick up of powder when you dust your blush brush into it. But they do blend out beautifully, to a lovely flush – see the swatches below
As you can see one swipe gives you major colour payoff. The packaging is a bonus with a good quality mirror (yes, not all mirrors are created equal) making it perfect if you don’t have a separate compact.
