Sleek Blush by 3 in Sugar: Review, Swatches, Comparisons
SLEEK Blush by 3 in Sugar would be the quintessential fall blush palette of colors if not for the poor quality and performance of most of the shades. Turbinado is decently pigmented but applies unevenly which is strange for a shimmery color. Muscovado, with its NARS Orgasm-like golden sheen, rich pigmentation, and silky texture, ultimately saves the palette from its impending doom. Demerara is the main cause of Sugar’s failures. It severely lacks color, smoothness, and longevity. Overall, this palette is a big flop for me.
