Pink Lemonade anyone?

So when we last spoke I promised you more regular blog posts.....I am a bad blogger and  I have been unable to keep this promise.

I have come to the realization that regular blogging while planning a DIY wedding is some what impossible. I come home from work most days and begin some kind of wedding related jobs be it cutting material or tying together pieces of bunting. Its safe to say its eating into my time much more than I anticipated ahind I am struggling to fit in anything non wedding related.

So today I make a new promise, I promise to blog when and where I can and will resume regular blog posts after my wedding. I also promise a blog post with lots of pictures from my wedding.

Anyway enough chit chat and rambles, this blog point does actually have a beauty related point....I promise.

Today I wanted to share a review of the 'Pink Lemonade' blush by three palette from Sleek. I bought this a few months ago after loving my first ever sleek blush so much I went back to Super Drug the following weekend and stocked up on blushes. However, in all the excitement i forgot to review it.

 pink mint , Macaroon and  Icing sugar

I took this trio of pink blushes with me on holiday to Dubai back in May as it gave me enough blush options for 10 days in the sun and literally haven't been able to put it down since.

This sleek palette is made up of three blushes, two powder blushes and one cream blush. I love the cute desert themed names for each blushes, although it does make me want to eat cake.

The first shade is 'pink mint', this cool toned baby pink shade is my favourite and most used blush of the three shades. The hint of silver shimmer blended into the pink tone gives my cheeks a really pretty icy pink sheen. This shade can be applied very lightly to give you a pop of pink or built up for a dramatic finish. I personally like to apply a good amount of product but then blend it in with my foundation brush to give it a natural blended finish, but is still noticeable and gives me a pretty pop of colour without it being too frosty.

Macaroon is a creamy rosy mauve shade. The creamy consistency of this blush makes it incredibly easy to blend into the skin, leaving the cheeks with a beautiful natural flush of colour, which is great for an every day no make up, make up look. I have even used my fingers to blend this blush and I never ever using my fingers, but that just proves how easy it is too apply.

Finally icing sugar is a lovely coral rose shade with blended gold shimmer. I loved this when I had a tan as it completed my colour really nice and gave my cheeks a beautiful warm rose gold glow. Both the powder blushes are very well pigmented and a little goes a long way (true of all sleek blushes). I find I get a good 3-4 hours of wear with these blushes before I need a little touch up. However, even when the blush begins to wear off it does not go patchy or crease, it just fades slightly, so I still have a hint of colour.

I think the blush by three sets from Sleek are a great hand bag or travelling blush, giving you three versatile shades to pick from, the packaging is thin and compact so fits perfectly in your make up bag and it has a really good sized mirror which is perfect for on the go touch ups.

For £10 I really cant recommend this blush enough, I can see me adding more of these blush trios into my collection.

Have you tried pink lemonade? Or have you tried any of the other trios? I would love to hear your recommendations if you have.

Till next time beauts
