Sleek Blush By 3 in Lace: Review & Swatches

Along with the eyeshadow palettes this blush palette also found its way into my makeup stash after some fellow Instagrammers recommended this one in "Lace". It retails for $15 for 3 blushes. 
Comes in a thin cardboard box, on the back it says the blushes can be worn alone or layered. 
Same sleek matte black packaging. 
The blushes are in the shades "Crochet" "Guipure" and "Chantilly"
and you get a full 20g of product. 
No plastic overlay but you do get a nice full size mirror. 
The colors do look a bit washed out in this picture, they are more intense in real life. 
Top to Bottom:

  • Chantilly: Bright orange with a hint of peach. It is a matte and it does blend well.
  • Guipure: Shimmery almost glittery pink with gold sparkles. I am not a fan of these types of blushes normally or on their own but it would layer nicely.
  • Crochet: Bright poppy also with a hint of peach. Also matte and also blends well. 
Overally, nice little palette. My favorite is the orange since it is brighter than a traditional peach. The shimmer like I said is not my cup of tea but if you like those kinds of blushes you would love it (I will probably use it as an eyeshadow). And the last one gives like a summery natural flushed look to the cheeks.
