Sleek Blush by 3 in Pink Sprint

I've been referring to this amazing palette as the ‘pink spirit’ but it's really called Sleek Blush by 3 in Pink Sprint. I guess that both names do make sense but I do find the original name fetching as the colors truly pop, are vivid and bright and actually they do recreate a healthy flush of the cheeks which I associate with running (especially the middle shade does that). You know the deal with the packaging. Is it firm? Yup. Is it black? Hell yeah. Is it sleek? Damn straight, it is! The price is the definite highlight because I never imagined that I could purchase a blush as high-quality as Sleek makes them. I've checked right now and the sale on www.sleekmakeup.com is still running – making this blush cost as low as $7.49. A bargain! Getting 20g of product for such price is amazing and I think that it's clear by now that Sleek blushes are becoming my favorite blushes. As far as the Pink Sprint palette goes – again, we have a very ‘loud’ blush palette of extremely pigmented hues (like Flame but at the other end of color spectrum). But, what makes Pink Sprint special? All three blushes it contains are matte. Quite unique, at least for the drugstore world. Shades are (L-R); Pinktini, Pink Ice and Pink Parfait.

Od pocetka pogresno zovem ovu paleticu rumenila ‘pink spirit’ a ustvari se zove Sleek Blush by 3 u nijansi Pink Sprint. Pretpostavljam da izmisljeno ime koje sam koristila nije u potpunosti besmisleno ali pravi naziv itekako ima smisla posto su nijanse u paletici jarke, zive i kreiraju onaj poznati izgled rumenih obrascica nakon trcanja (posebno srednja nijansa). Znate vec sve sto cu reci za pakovanje. Da li cvrsto? Da. Da li je crne boje? Kao i uvijek. Da li je ugladjenog stila? Itekako! Cijena je jedna od pozitivnih stvari koje su me privukle jer tesko da bih prije mogla zamisliti kako cu moci nabaviti rumenila ovakve kvalitete za relativno malo novca. Upravo sam provjerila i jos uvijek je rasprodaja na www.sleekmakeup.com aktuelna – ova paletica jos uvijek kosta samo cca 13KM. Nevjerovatna cijena a i dostava je jako pristupacna. Dobiti 20g proizvoda za sitne novce je odlicna stvar i vec pocinje biti jasno kako su Sleek rumenila postala meni najdraza. Po pitanju Pink Sprint palete – ponovo imamo zive, jarke boje izuzetne pigmentacije (kakav je bio slucaj sa Flame paletom). No, sto cini Pink Sprint posebnom? Cinjenica da su sva tri rumenila mat. Prilicno unikatan slucaj, posebno za drogerijski rang. Nijanse koje paletica sadrzi (sa lijeve na desnu stranu) su; Pinktini, Pink Ice i Pink Parfait


Pinktini is a gorgeous burgundy-esque shade Extremely scary in the pan and extremely scary to even fathom wearing. I do think that it's quite dark and my guess is that it fits medium and dark complexions best. Personally, I will use it come autumn but with a very light hand. Even then I'll be cautious and powder my cheeks prior to applying it to prevent pigment sticking to one place. I think it's a very pretty, autumnal hue but it is rather complex to pull off. And if you're too scared of it in the pan – try apply it with a wet eyeliner brush because it makes a heck of a burgundy eyeliner. My absolute fave blush from the palette is Pink Ice. Wow, is that a bright fuchsia or what? It's basically pressed candy goodness in a compact. It looks so fun and delicious and maybe even a bit Barbie-like. That's not my usual MO but I really like it. It gives a nice flush to the cheeks and freshens up my complexion. You can see me wearing it on photos below. And yes, even though I find the entire posing for photos ridiculous, I am showing off my new above knuckle ring. You like? Final, third shade from the palette is Pink Parfait. The middle ground between previous two, it's a muted, rich mauve which is relatively easy to wear. Again, ideal for medium to darker skin tones. However, it has a lesser lasting power of just approx 4-5h while the rest two shades stay on cheeks all day. All blushes are slightly powdery and there is light fallout but nothing major. I'd say that this is a mostly autumnal shade but the middle bright fuchsia carries one of my fave summer blushes to date. It's more convenient for medium to dark skin tones but that bright fuchsia – man, I'd wear it whichever skin tone I had. It's blimmin’ perfect.

Pinktini je prekrasna, bogata boja skoro pa crvenog/crnog vina. Nevjerovatno strasna u paletici i jos strasnija je misao nositi je na svojim jagodicama. Mislim da je dosta tamna tako da cu pretpostaviti da, ako ce dobro izgledati na nekome, to ce biti osobe srednje tamnog i tamnog tena. Za sebe mogu reci da cu ovo rumenilo koristiti kada stigne jesen a uz to cu biti i jaako ‘lake’ ruke pri nanosenju. Pa cak i tada ovo rumenilo necu nanositi direktno preko tecne podloge vec cu blago preci puderom u kamenu preko jagodica pa tek onda nanositi ga jer zelim izbjeci lijepljenje pigmenta na samo jedno mjesto. Jako je lijepa nijansa no prilicno je tesko iznijeti. Ukoliko vec posjedujete ovu paleticu a bojite se uopste eksperimentisati sa ovom nijansom, pokusajte je nanijeti vlaznim, koso rezanim kistom za eyeliner jer djeluje fantasticno upravo kao eyeliner u ‘burgundy’ fazonu. Moj apsolutni favorit iz paletice je nijansa Pink Ice. Ako ovo nije zarka fuksijasta boja, ne znam sta je. Za mene je ovo rumenilo poput svih dobrih ruzicastih slatkisa – presovanih u ovu malu kutijicu. Tako je vesele nijanse pa mozda cak i malo u ‘Barbie’ fazonu, sto inace nije nesto sto mi se dopada, ali ovo rumenilo mi je odlicno. Tako lijepo osvjezi obraze ali i cijelo lice a mozete vidjeti kako na meni izgleda na fotkama ispod. I da, iako jos uvijek mislim da je poziranje za fotkanje u potpunosti blesavo, zeljela sam vam se pohvaliti mini prstencicem iznad zgloba (kupljen u SIX radnji). Posljednja, treca nijansa iz paletice je Pink Parfait. Nalazi se negdje izmedju prethodne dvije nijanse ako gledamo gradaciju nijansi. Radi se o donekle ublazenoj mauve nijansi koju je relativno lako iznijeti. Takodjer je jako dobra za srednje do tamne nijanse tena. Nesto je slabije trajnosti od 4-5h dok preostala dva rumenila na mojim obrazima izdrze cijeli dan. Sva rumenila su puderasta zbog mat finisa no ne rasipaju se previse. Ocijenila bih ovu paletu uopsteno kao jesenju no srednja nijansa fuksije je ipak jedno od najljepsih ljetnih rumenila koje sam koristila. Vjerovatno ne odgovara svijetlom tenu ali, covjece, ono fuksijasto rumenilo – njega bih nosila bez obzira kakav ten da imam.
