I was so happy to find a shade of foundation that wasn't too dark or pink on my skin, I have never been able to find a foundation that matched me in a drugstore. I bought shell, which is quite pale with yellow tones and no pink at all. I find that it works very well on my dry skin as a lot of foundations make my skin feel dry and itchy after an hour or two. Although if you have oily skin you might not like it that much. The only problem I have is that the pump on the bottle only lets out a set amount of foundation, so if you want a little bit more or less you have to open up the bottle.

I'm super impressed with the foundation. I'm incredibly pale, to the point where the vast majority of high street (and even high end!) foundations don't carry a shade pale enough for me.
I'm a Lancome 010 teint idole for reference, and I use the colour Shell, which is a really good match for me. As a silicon based foundation, it sits really, really well on my dry skin, and it doesn't go patchy on me.It has fantastic coverage which you can work to be sheer or more full coverage. It's super blendable and settles down to skin beautifully.
My only criticism of the actual product is it takes a while to dry, this is not a last-minute-out-the-door product, it's something that demands it's time to dry, otherwise it transfers. Once it is dry however, it doesn't move, and powder sits nicely on top of it.

I have bought this in "shell" which is my perfect match. That came as quite a surprise since I have yet to find another foundation line which takes ladies with yellow undetones into account when manufacturing their foundation. However, other than being perfect color-wise I do not like wearing this foundation. I have normal to mildly-oily skin in the T-zone and this makes me suuuuper shiny by the end of the day even if I blot or use special mattifying powders on top during the day. It also settles very quickly in the pores and thin lines even though I have tried using it with three different primers.
I'm so disappointed because I thought I had finally found THE perfect foundation for me!
If you're in the UK or if you're planning to place an order on the Sleek website you might still want to give it a try: it's cheap and Sleek offers those niflty little tester kits that are great to try the foundation before actually buying it (something other brands should do as well as offering more than 30 color options!)

BLOODY MARVELLOUS STUFF!!! This product is oil-free. I was dubious. I'm old, you know...... I have discovered that I can't use BB creams, as they flake and go all tidal and chalky on me, so I was expecting a horror story. The price (About ten euros on Ebay with postage) made it worth the gamble. SO GLAD I DID! Sleek have 30 different shades to choose from - look at their website - you can order sample-sized testers to get the right colour and formula!!! (ALL MAKEUP COMPANIES SHOULD DO THIS!!!) I chose SHELL which is PERFECT for my pale, YELLOW skin. (Most makeup companies think pale-faces are either pink or grey.) I have been wearing it for two weeks' straight and I will re-order. It is winter and I should be expecting flakies, but everyone's commenting on how great my skin is looking.
