    Paris this looks GORGOEUS on you!! Your cheeks are so glowy!! LOVE!!
    I have never tried a Sleek blush but that Pink Sprint is so unique and calling my name! One more month until blush ban lifts, one more month…

      Thanks Tracy and You can do it! Although I think you might just go mad after this month ;) I think Pink Sprint is very unique too – a whole palette of matte blushes. Sounds promising!

    That is a pretty palette indeed! Pink spirit seems very me HAHAHAHA

    Yay for Sleek then~ Their stuff seems to be very, very good in terms of quality ^.^

      Yay for Pink Sprint hehe… its all matte in that one and I think I could see you wearing it :D Some of their stuff aren’t bad for the price you pay. The shipping is killer though >.<

    Sugar looks great on you! I have just ordered Lace and was contemplating Pumpkin since this year’s hot shade would be tangerine. But then again, I have yellow undertone and afraid it will make more yellow.LOL!

      That Pumpkin one reminded of the pink and yellow Anna Sui blush I tried once. I never got it to work properly so I’d stay far away from it :P Lace does look very pretty so I’m quite keen on that one!

    This looks fantastic, and BTW, it doesn’t look scary on you. It looks great! :)

      Thank you Shandi :D It doesn’t look scary on the skin at all and I’m sure you could pull it off quite easily too!

    Oh you’re making me want this! There’s a few online shops in SG which sell this, now I’m going to grab it. Have you tried Sleek’s eyeshadow palettes as well? They’re inexpensive and of quite good quality!

      I’ve tried a couple of Sleek Makeup’s eyeshadow palettes and I will agree. They are pretty good quality for the small price tag :) I do prefer their shimmer colours to their mattes though. They have some matte palettes coming up. Will have to see how that fares :) If you can get this blush palette in Singapore, I think its worth trying one or two (if you don’t already own a ton of products that it ;) )

      Hi Paris and Germs! What an informative post! I’m from Singapore but am currently studying in UK for a semester! Just found out about the wonderful sleek palettes, bought 3 of the eye palettes and did swatches too! I found them really amazing for the price ^^ Germs you mentioned they are available in Singapore online stores? Could you share what they are? Would really love to be able to get them when back home! Also, in UK, while they are available in Superdrug.. they don’t seem to carry the blushby3 and the rose gold nars orgasm dupe is ALWAYS sold out =( bah. Thanks for the review Paris! looking forward to trying more blushes =D

        I know Luxola.com has Sleek Makeup but Germs may know of others since she’s based in Singapore. I was told Sleek Makeup is hard to find even in large Superdrug stores. How odd!

    I like your eye makeup!! The blush doesn’t look anything like the picture on the website! I would have thought who in the world wears such dark colours on their cheeks! Lace looks nice though!

    • Paris B
      April 26, 2012

      Thanks Applegal :) Its colours from Naked2 ;) I was very worried too when I saw the pictures from the website – only Lace looked remotely wearable from those pics! I’m really eyeing Lace too!

    the blush looks beautiful and that’s a lot of product in one palette. :) makes me feel like getting it now. the orange in the pumpkin palette looks scary though. haha

    • Paris B
      April 26, 2012

      Actually, orange is a very wearable colour even for a blush, but yellow? Erm… pass on it, especially if you are Asian :P

    take my sugar, take it! *flings bags of sugar at PB* love the colour combo on you – It reminds me of the blush in the Clinique Milly palette just a tiny bit, but can I still hanker for it all the same?

      *ducks flying sugar bags* Thanks Bee :D Yes you can hanker after this one, but *ahem* there are already others waiting to be defiled yes? ;) Not a must have, just a nice “want”

      I think anyone can wear Sugar :D Use a light hand if fair skinned and a slightly heavier hand for darker skintones. Those who are darker will find this gives a beautiful glow :D

    I want Pink Sprint! These are gorgeous and easy on the pocket. Thanks for sharing about Sugar. :)

      I’m waiting for your thoughts on Lace, Mag! :D I’m eyeing that one but balking a little at paying the hefty shipping :P

    Gorgeous palette and it looks good on you. I got my eyes on lace. I actually have their eyeshadow palette, a few lip paints and gloss. Awesome stuff. Cheap too. Think I’m going to get their blushes next

      I was planning to try their blushes that come in single pans, but now they have trios, I think it makes more sense to get the trios :P I have a couple eyeshadow palettes too and I like the Pout Polishes!

        April 27, 2012

        Worth buying! Especially for the grapefruity middle shade with its pinked-orange tones. Very pretty. A pinker/less glittery Orgasm?

      Thanks Dom, I think you’d look good in Sugar too to be honest :) I’m eyeing Lace myself but am balking at the shipping :P

    Ahh this looks adorable on you! I’ve heard so much about Sleek blushes, and it looks like poor Richard will have to locate some when he comes to Belgium next time! He was the one who had to collect my Naked palette order from Boots for me a couple of years back when it was so sold-out everywhere else, and naturally he had no idea what the hype was all about and why his otherwise sane friend started foaming at the mouth like a rabies dog when she saw it lol

      Ahh I was wondering who poor Richard was hehe… Its great that you have a makeup mule who can and will look for stuff for you :D Every girl needs one ;) A lot of Sleek Makeup is actually quite decent for the low pricetag so I think they are actually great stuff.

    Oh, mine is so coming in slightly less than 10 days time, thanks to ebay. =D

    I ordered Lace and Sugar. Pretty sure I can wear Sugar because I went to search for swatches for all palettes. Lace looks really lovely.

    The one that I think I can’t wear is Pink Spirit.

    Loving the Sleek eyeshadow palettes!

    • Paris B
      April 26, 2012

      From what I remember you telling me before about your skintone, I think Sugar would look amazing on you! I can’t wait to see what you think of Lace too – I hear that its really beautiful and wearable!

    hei paris, the colours look nice on your cheek even though the swatches on ur hand doesnt seems to suit fair skin tones like yours. Did you used all three colours in the pictures above? It doesnt seems to look like the swatches on your hand at all! Btw, Lace seems like pretty nice! I would definitely ask someone to get me one of these if they happened to go uk ;)

    • Paris B
      April 26, 2012

      Hi Pinkcloud :D Thanks and yes, I wasn’t expecting it to look this way on skin but yay for not looking like a pumpkin! :D I did use all 3 colours. Just take a brush, dab on each colour once consecutively, dab on a piece of tissue paper and then apply to skin. That way, its less intense. I’m looking for someone going to the UK to grab me Lace too LOL!

    I adore Sleek!I’ve got the blush by 3 in Lace and love it! The middle colour in lace is quite similar to Nars Orgazm :)

    • Paris B
      April 26, 2012

      Oh that’s good to know! At least I now have an idea on what Lace might look like :)

    They do look scary in the pan!
    I have to say they look amazing on you. But, Paris, you pull off basically every lip/cheek/eye color you try!
    How do you that?! xx

    • Paris B
      April 26, 2012

      Thanks S :D It comes with some practice I think, and imagination. I can’t work all colours, but sometimes, as with deep bright colours like this one, a light hand and a good brush helps. I also tend to stick to tones that work with my skintone and I’m lucky that I’m generally neutral toned so I can play with quite a wide range of shades. Just nothing too warm and I’m good :D

    Oooooh, I need Lace and Pumpkin in my life!! Gosh, I hope I can still get them tho.. Sleek makeups sold out really fast on line. Might need to do a little work to get them. You’re right about the pics, they dont look anything like in the the pics.. So I wonder do the rest of the palettes are less pigmented then?! Hmmm

    • Paris B
      April 26, 2012

      Yikes! Do they sell out very quickly? I think I’ve seen these on ebay too so you can try looking there – a little pricier but easier to get than from the Sleek Makeup site if they run out ;)

      Oh dear, I hope your package comes soon. I did see that they have a lot of shipping issues on their Facebook page :( I am eyeing Lace actually – I’m told its really pretty!

    This looks really good on you. Last year I bite myself and ordered 2 palettes and sunrise blush, I think I will have to do the same for these blushes probably some sugar please. The shipping is horrendous, but for the price and quality it’s a great value. Are you going to get more? ?

    • Paris B
      May 14, 2012

      I am eyeing Lace but as you say, the shipping is awful. I’m going to see if any friends going to the uk can pick on up for me.
