Sleek Creme to Powder Foundation: swatch it & see
15 Friday Feb 2013
Need another reason to love Sleek Makeup? I bought these tester kits for just £2.99 each.
Although they’re really aimed at helping you identify your shade, they’re great as little concealer palettes. Swatches at the end of the post but first, I also tried the full size version in my shade. Here’s what I thought.
Weight/ volume: 9g/ 0.31oz
My shade: 705 Fudge
Features: oil-free crème to powder foundation compact
Purchased/ sample: Purchased sample sizes (available at Sleek Makeup online for £2.99)
Crème to Powder Foundation provides a super-smooth finish, with medium-to-full coverage that is perfect for concealing dark circles and blemishes.
+ Very creamy texture applies and blends beautifully into the skin. I’ve tried other brands ‘creme to powder’ products and found them to be too dry or too creamy for my skin. It really is personal preference as every skintone and texture is different but this formula suits my skin perfectly.
+ Great coverage from all shades. Sleek describe the cover as medium to full and it is true to their word. It covers uneven pigmentation and my acne scars without the need to set the foundation afterwards. Genuine 2-in-1.
– Strong orange undertone to all shades. This works fine for preventing darker shades from looking ashy but it looks unnatural in the lighter shades (fudge shade and lighter). Face to face it looks fine but on camera you can see it, and I don’t like the effect on camera.
Yay or nay
I’m undecided on my shade (Fudge). The darker shades are amazing but as I mentioned above, the lighter shades are too orangey for my liking. If you’re shade 458 (Latte) or darker then I would recommend it. If lighter, then definitely buy the light shade sampler (I will definitely buy that one soon myself) to try before buying the full size.
