Whenever I'm in need of something new for a pop of colour to my cheeks, there is only one brand I turn to, Sleek.
When I saw that they were planning to release this collection, I new that I simply had to have it, anything that has the word 'candy' in really is a no-brainer and the name alone had me sold. (Bonus points for good marketing there Sleek..)
This blush palette is one of three items available in the collection (the other two being an eyeshadow palette and a bright bubblegum pink paint pout) and is definitely my favourite.
The palette is in keeping with the traditional 'Sleek' packaging with the only variation being the words 'Sweet cheeks' embossed on the bottom right hand corner of the lid and the exterior cardboard case that houses the palette comes with a limited edition white 'Candy collection' logo. Personally I'm an absolute lover of packaging and would have loved something different, I wasn't expecting anything in the league of MAC limited editions, but would definitely welcome a slight variation.
The palette itself does what it says on the tin - Sleek. The matte black casing makes it feel very luxurious looking too. It's the first Blush By 3 from Sleek that I own and I'm really very impressed. To start, I really do like that there really isn't any excess space in terms of its layout. It fits comfortably in the palm of your hand whilst having the added bonus of a mirror that runs the length of the inside lid.
The compliments don't just stop at the aesthetics, never one to judge on looks alone. It's the product alone that really makes it a Summer must have.
The choice of colours are actually really good, normally in trios there is usually a colour that will go untouched, but I can actually see myself using all of these.
(From top to bottom) Candy Floss a pinky-red with a shimmer finish. Dolly Mix is actually really wearable, it looks like lilac in pan but once swatched its a beautiful baby pink with a slight hint of lilac - very pretty. The last is Cupcake and the creme blush,its a gorgeous hot pink. The pigmentation is seriously one of the best that I have come across, you seriously need to lightly touch the pan for a flush of colour (the swatches below are with one swipe of product) The texture is perfect, and you'll all be pleased to know that you won't have to worry about the fall out from the powder blushes getting stuck in the creme blush as there is hardly any fall out.
The real winner is the formulation (particularly of the creme blusher), it stays on ALL day & when I swatched the blusher on the back of my hands it survived a whole Sunday Lunch washing up session in soapy water!
This palette is limited edition so I would urge you all to pop over to your Superdrug pretty soonish to avoid disappointment.
