~[REVIEW & SWATCHES]:Sleek Blush by 3 Palette in Californ.I.A called Newport Peach,The Surf & OC~

Hello Girls
Spring is here!Time to update our wardrobes,shoe racks and offcourse makeup!
Luckily I ordered this Sleek Blush by 3 in Californ.I.A.These palettes have made a big name in the blush industry recently specially I have read beauty bloggers raving about them.Lets have a look at this beauty.
What SLEEK says about the product:
The ultimate cheeky palette offering you three times the impact. Includes three complementary shades, each designed with its own distinctive finish, from rich shimmers to intense matte shades.

  • Available in six unique colour combinations designed to suit all skin tones
  • Each shade can be used alone, or layered for a unique look
  • Each palette has a versatile selection of shades to take your makeup from day to night and keep it    on trend from season to season
  • Set in a mirrored compact, ideal for touch-ups throughout the day
    This is the newest addition to my collection of blushes.Oh Yes & its my first Blush Palette.Uptil now I have bought blushes but never have been too impressed by a palette that has all shades that I like.But Sleek made me go crazy for this as soon as I saw its shades.I would also like to mention that this is a palette that has all cream blushers & I have never been a big fan of Cream blushers.Always have bought powder blushers except once or twice because there are only two cream blushers in my stack.One is MUA Cream Blushers DOLLY & Maybelline Mousse Blusher that I don't use a lot.So basically I ordered this knowingly that all were cream blushers.I wanted to give them a try.
    Lets have a look at the palette again.
    Details on the back of the cover also mentions that this palette consists of three cream blushers.
    As Sleek is famous for designing sleek & compact products,this palette is also very sleek.
    It comes with a full large sized mirror that makes it really easy to do touch ups.You don't have to worry about carrying an extra small mirror in your bag if you have this sleek palette or any other sleek palette as even the individual blushers by Sleek have mirrors!
    The names of the three shades are 
    ~Newport Peach
    ~The Surf
    NEWPORT PEACH is a very light Coral Pink shade that is easy to work with.It is easily blended due to its creamy consistency.Its not dry at all.Has a very dewy touch to it.It has a touch of beautiful shimmer in it that leaves the skin glowing after its applied.
    THE SURF is a peachy shade with golden shimmer in it.I would love to use this as an highlighter because it has all the qualities of a highlighter.Its finish is dewy and blends easy leaving a natural glowing shade on the skin.
    OC is a orange coral shade.I am wondering what OC stands for though!Its also has the same glitter effect that Newport Peach has.It looks slightly darker than when applied and blended.OC is also very creamy and dewy.Blends very easily as well.
    Here are some swatches for you.
    & here are how they looked when all three shades were put together to create this lovely shade on my face.

    a closer look

    & the complete look
    You can see that it gives a glowing complexion to the cheeks.Its because of the presence of small glitter in all the three shades.These shades can be worn alone as the individual shades can be build up with more layering.All the three can be worn together to achieve the shade I got there on my cheeks.I have tried to capture the shade closely in the face pictures.

    All the shades as I mentioned already are very creamy and buttery in texture.I had a fear of cream blushers being dry but that fear is wiped out now.They are very pigmented and workable.You can use a blusher blush or fingers to blend the shades.I have used my fingers for this purpose.
    The blush was still there when I returned from my evening/night out with family that would categorize the blush as longlasting.It stays there for atleast 6-7 hours without touchups.
    Overall its a great palette for those who want to give cream blushers a try & perfect for those who already love cream blushers.Its a must have for this spring as all the shades are gorgeous.I think these will be my go to blushers this spring/summer.I loved wearing them together.I yet have to try wearing them alone.
