OMG- this is awesomeness in a bottle. Super creamy. Supper full coverage and blends lovely. My dry flaky skin doe not complain. I bought Medium which is bit too dark for my NC45 skin tone so I lighten it by dabbing a lighter concealer in the center of my face with a buffer brush!! This is perfection!!!! will definitely buy again despite their horrific customer service.
Just came in the mail last week! Medium) so far I like it! It doesnt rub off-even when I didnt use a primer- and it blends it so well. Easy and neat to dispense. Btw: I am NW45
As most of us probably watch YouTube and the fabulous Pixiwoo sister and Gossmakeupartist you would know how they approved of this bb cream. Now, I don't like any that I've tried except the garnier one because its thick and moisturizing. This one is perfect though. I seriously got the most perfect skin with this. I'm in the lightest shade. It's a bit ashy in the tube but it applies like a dream. It's like having the luxury of a great moisturizer with the coverage of a concealer and having it be build able without feeling or looking heavy. It's super full coverage but certainly doesn't feel that way! I LOVE it!
I was glad to be able to try a BB cream & being that Sleek caters to Woc,I went ahead with this one. First off,the price isn't bad...if you plan to place a nice sized order from Sleek or know someone who can Cp it. My friend in the UK picked up this & a couple other of their items for me. So shipping wasn't bad. Overall I like the texture,feel,coverage of this BB. As I find it covers without being too heavy. But I did get it in Medium & for my skin,Nc44-45,it was kinda too dark. And although the red under tones to show up @ times in my skin,this was a tad too red for me. Although I will be purchaseing one of the newer shades,as I got this last year. I think I'll try to use this in the summer with my tan,as I can wear Nw43 as well. But overall nice:) continued >>
Sleek have done it again with this wonderful BB cream. I have previously been happily mixing their medium and fair shades in a 50:50 ratio to achieve my colour however this time I bought this in the new shade Light 2, which matches my NC45 complexion, very well... if anything it is possibly half a tone redder.... possibly a perfect match for the sumer months. Creamy, thick and medium pigmented, this cream leaves my dry winter skin looking hydrated, dewy, natural and luminous. Unlike some other foundation it seemed to have great staying power & stayed on my skin all day. In summary, great colour, good pigmentation/coverage, natural hydrating dewy finish and amazing value for money. I'm in love! continued >>
Sleek have definitely nailed it with this BB cream, a total newbie to the tinted moisturiser/BB cream phenomenon and with the introduction to BB creams to the western market, I thought it was about time to delve into purchasing the Sleek one upon hearing relatively great reviews. I have the shade medium and I'm around an NW40/43 in MAC, I do have a yellow undertone but find using bases with a more pink undertone compliment me better and the Sleek one doesn't really have that on me and it's a bit dark but that's not a big deal. It has a thick formula and for a BB cream, I must say does give great medium-full coverage and offers a natural dewy finish which I enjoy on myself. The longevity however is not the best, I get oily especially on my t-zone after only a few hours, so some blotting papers and my trusty MAC Studio Fix are always a necessity to have nearby. It also works as a great primer for my matte foundations (recently came to the conclusion that I dislike matte bases) and gives a natural satin finish to them. With the limited shades for BB creams for darker complexions, I do say that most people should give this a try, for £8.99 it's great. Only a few other brands like GOSH and Smashbox offer deeper toned BB creams so for the quality, I am very impressed.
I purchased this in the shade Medium 01 (it's one of Sleek's newer shades, previously they only had Medium and Dark).
Medium 01 is just a little too dark for me (I'm NC50 with strong yellow undertones) and this BB cream was also a little too red. I've seen pictures of people using the Medium, and I think this would be a better shade for me. Or, I may have to mix them.
Either way, this is a WIN for me. It covers my dark spots without a concealer and really evens me out. It really gilded on to my skin. This is not for people who want light coverage- you're going to get pretty good medium, to heavy-medium coverage. This is not a tinted moisturizer.
The texture of this product is really thick. Way thicker than normal liquid foundation. The texture kind of reminds me of the old school MAC Matte foundation (any 90s MAC fans remember that?!)
I think that if you're considering trying this BB Cream, go for it. It's at least worth trying it.
I'm generally a massive fan of Sleek stuff, and I've really been taken in by BB creams, so I looked forward to trying this. I first purchased this in Light and it looked the right colour when I swatched it, but after I applied it to my face it looked slightly darker and was much much too dark. Later I bought a Fair which was very very white and far too pale- mixed together they make a lovely shade but there's a big difference between all of the different shades in the range. Very good pigmentation and staying power, really evened out my skintone- didn't even need concealer.
For reference I'm C5/NC42 in MAC & 360 Golden Caramel in Revlon ColorStay.
I like the packaging, price & pigmentation, but received Medium in a swap and suspect that it's around NW45 in MAC. Because, it's several shades darker than me and quite red based. I put it on my cousin, who is 400 Caramel in Revlon ColorStay. It looked around 2 shades darker and definitely redder than she is.
I applied this with my fingers. It didn't spread as easily as a moisturizer does and wasn't very moisturizing on her Normal/Dry skin. It's medium coverage with one relatively thin layer and I'd say that this has a satin finish, unless you have very oily skin. In which case, I think that it might turn out to be a bit dewy.
This is my first BB Cream, so I don't have anything to compare it to. But, I think that I'd really like it in the proper shade, which should be Light. I'll edit this, once I've gotten my hands on it. I recently read a blog review by someone who says that she is NC42 and found the perfect match by mixing Light & Medium. So, I'll hold on to Medium, for now. continued >>
Before BB creams had really exploded and were readily available in the US, I refused to wear any sort of foundation. I would only wear concealer and the rest of my makeup. When this balm came out, I figured that I'd dip my toes into the realm of foundations, although BB's are kinda outliers. I was very happy with this BB cream. I purchased it in Fair and it evens out my skin tone wonderfully. I apply a small amount all over my face, and then buff it in with a stippling brush, and I look nearly airbrushed. It has SPF 15 and red algae extract, both used to prevent aging. This cream effectively neutralizes any redness in my face and feels very hydrating. If you suffer from dry skin, I would give this a go, as most "western" creams seem to focus on being extremely light wearing. If you have combination skin, I would make sure to apply powder to your oily bits, this doesn't handle sweat the best so it is likely it won't do to well with oil either. Also, the color range caters to the much darker skin tones that are often ignored when making these creams. Overall, I am highly satisfied and plan to repurchase when I run out.
