Sleek blush by 3: Lace

Now we are on to the 5th and final palette, yay! It took a while but I got there in the end folks. When I first saw Lace I thought it was not going to suit my skin tone, it looked like the colours would be "too light" however thankfully I don't think that will be the case. 


Out of all of the palettes I think this might be the only one that doesn't have a spot on dupe, there was one that came close but as you will see from the swatches, there is a discernible difference.
Chantilly & Pan tao
Pan tao is one of my favourite blushes, I go through stages where it will be all that I reach for. It looks like it wouldn't suit my skin tone but you'll be mistaken, it gives a really nice warmth to my cheeks, I thought I had found a dupe in chantilly, as Pan tao was limited edition, but it is a little darker and a little bit more on the orange side. 
Guipure & Rose gold
When I saw Guipure, I though rose gold would be an exact dupe for it, but as the swatch clearly shows rose gold is more of a cool pink whilst Guipure is I tad bit warmer and a slightly orange too. Now I use  Rose gold as a highlighter as it doesn't really show up on me, I mainly get left with the gold once it had been blended out so I suspect I might experience the same with Guipure. 

So that's it folks, all of the new sleek blush by 3 palettes swatched and blogged about, I know a few of you have mentioned that you found these posts helpful which is great to hear! I know how frustrating it can be to find useful swatches of products sometimes.

Which palettes did you pick up?

  1. I really want this palette, but they don't even sell it in the US :((( I don't even know when they will start selling it online. The ones Ebay sells are too over priced.

    1. Ohh forgot to add (haha) it is quite strange that this is the only set without exact dupes, how random... still so pretty though!
