SLEEK Blush by 3 in Lace is a peach-orange lover’s dream. The color and finish selection of this palette is impeccable, making these some of my favorite blushes. The quality of the overall palette, however, is slightly disappointing. The two matte shades Crochet and Chantilly tend to be on the drier, chalkier side and can be patchy upon application and wear. While the mattes don’t preform as nicely as I would have liked, Guipure is a pleasure to work with. It has fantastic pigmentation, blendability, and wear.

3) Chantilly (matte coral red) – B+, not as powdery and dry as Chantilly. Fades by 6th hour.
Sleek P Pie (Blush by 3 in Pumpkin) is more matte and much more orange. Rock & Republic All Nighter is redder and shimmery. Illamasqua Lover is the closest but lacks the orange undertone. La Femme Orange is more orange and red.
Cargo Rome has a slightly pinker undertone but is a dupe of Guipure. theBalm Hot Mama has the same golden sheen but is much more pink. NARS Orgasm is closer to theBalm Hot Mama but doesn’t have as strong of a sheen.
Rock&Republic Immoral is slightly more orange. Tom Ford Flush is much pinker. La Femme Terracotta is slightly redder and has shimmer.
