After a little more unsuccessful searching, I remembered the UK company Sleek Makeup where I purchased one of my beauty faves, the Sleek Face Contour Kit. When I checked out their blush selection the only problem I had was that I liked them all so much I didn't know which shade to choose!
For $12.45 I could get the Blush by 3 Palette with three blush colors as opposed to just one blush color like the drugstore options. I finally settled on two Blush by 3 Palettes in Flame & Lace.I also decided to throw in a single blush in the color Flushed. Shipping was only $2.76 for my total order. The grand total was $33.73 for seven colors. Not bad considering I definitely would have spent more than that at a store like MAC, Sephora, or even the local drugstore!
I received my order in about a week. All my blushes arrived packaged well in sturdy, matte black, mirrored cases. All of the colors were in tact; no issues with cracked or broken colors. The colors are rich and vivid and can be applied softly for a subtle effect or layered for a more intense look. (I prefer a the soft subtle look.)

I really like all the colors in the Flame palette, but as of now I think Molten is my favorite.

The lace palette is very subtle on my skin. It's great for a warm neutral look.

I'm very happy with my purchase and will be purchasing two more Blush by 3 Palettes in Sugar and Pink Spirit along with a Rose Gold single blush in the near future.
