 Sleek Blush by 3 in Lace  Review, Swatches

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.
