FOTD ft. Sleek BB Cream

Hey sweet-peas, as we all know the weather has been pretty darn hot and humid in the UK recently and at times very temperamental, with all this heat I have been playing around with a few products to make my routines easier and more manageable.

I recently have been looking for and researching BB and CC creams trying to find the best for my skin type, coverage and lasting power. As I was recently in Superdrug I managed to pick up a few Sleek bits and bobs and decided to give their BB cream a go. I ended up getting the shade 'medium' which was slightly darker than I had expected for my brown/ yellow undertone skin. So I decided experiment to find what could make it work, by mixing some concealer with my BB cream it worked a treat.

I found the Sleek BB cream to be a little oily when first applied (in my personal opinion) but it just needs time to sink into the skin and with a few swipes of powder over the top the sheen disappears. Sleeks BB cream deserves some good recognition for its staying power and overall good coverage! And the price helps too only costing £8.99 you cant argue with that!

After applying my BB cream/concealer base, I also applied some powder to mattify my face, blush for my cheeks, a little mascara and a pink/nude lip liner & lipstick.

Overall I was looking for something that I could wear in this heat, which wouldn't make me feel like I was melting, that was easy to do, didn't take much time and looked natural.



Products Used:
Sleek BB Cream- Medium mixed with Mac Concealer- NC42
Sleek Luminaire Highlighting Concealer- Shade 5
Bare Minerals Original Veil
Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara

Let me know what you think. Have you tried any BB/CC creams yet?
