Sleek MakeUP Pink Lemonade Blush by 3 Palette ($14.99 for 0.68 oz.) includes three shades of blush. This particular palette has two powder blushes and one cream blush. Icing Sugar was unfortunately a huge miss in this palette–dry, powdery texture with little color payoff and was quick to fade, while Pink Mint was nicely pigmented with a lovely texture and better wear. The cream blush, Macaroon, in the middle was average in regards to wear but was easy to apply and had good color payoff. Because of just how powdery Icing Sugar is, it is very easy to get powder from it into the cream blush, so the palette can get a little messy.

Icing Sugar is a muted, medium pinky-plum with cool undertones and a silver sparkle over a satiny finish. I was quite disappointed by this blush, because the texture was dry, crumbly, and powdery, which resulted in really poor color payoff that was somewhat uneven. The powder just didn’t want to adhere or stick to the skin in any way–I packed and packed it on then blended furiously to get any color on my cheeks. The color wore well for six and a half hours on me. Revlon Haute Pink (002) (P, $9.99) is less sparkly, brighter. Tarte Dollface (P, $26.00) is less shimmery. Too Faced Raindrops on Roses (LE) is brighter. Urban Decay Temper (LE) is less shimmery, brighter. NYX English Rose (P, $15.00) is less sparkly. MAC Stay Pretty (P, $23.50) is more muted, less sparkly. MAC Pink Tea (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC Dame (P, $21.00) is less sparkly. MAC Gentle (P, $25.00) is less sparkly. See comparison swatches or view on the Dupe List.

Macaroon is a cool-toned, medium pink with a creamy, luminous finish. It is a cream blush, and it had good color payoff, and the texture was lightly creamy and easy to blend on the skin. The color lasted for just over seven hours on me. theBalm Argyle (P, $22.00) is lighter, powder. Edward Bess Bed of Roses (P, $43.00) is powder. MAC Weekend Getaway (LE, $20.00) is darker. Bobbi Brown Pretty Pink (P, $26.00) is powder. Bobbi Brown Pastel Pink (P, $26.00) is powder. See comparison swatches or view on the Dupe List.

Pink Mint is a medium-dark, muted orange with a rusty, reddish tone and a frosted finish. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was soft, buttery, and blendable. The color wore well for almost eight hours on me before showing signs of fading. (Really wish Icing Sugar had been half as lovely as this shade.) It just slightly emphasizes pores. MAC Scene to Be Seen (Inner) (LE, $30.00) is browner, more muted. NARS Soulshine (Together) (LE, $29.00) is pinker. Tom Ford Beauty Love Lust (P, $55.00) is lighter, pinker. MAC Fleet Fast (LE, $21.00) is pinker, less frosted. MAC Stereo Rose (LE, $30.00) is lighter. MAC Ring of Saturn (LE, $25.00) is darker, bolder. Burberry Blossom (P, $42.00) is pinker, less shimmery. Bobbi Brown Coral (P, $25.00) is lighter, less shimmery. Benefit Rockateur (P, $28.00) is more muted, lighter. See comparison swatches or view on the Dupe List.
