Sleek Make UP Creme to Powder impressed me.
Today's Face of the Day was created using minimal products (well minimal to me anyway!).
Sleek Make UP Creme to Powder Foundation in Latte* used a concealer and foundation. This foundation is surprisingly good. I sound surprised as after my last experience with a clinique creme to powder I used a few years ago, I was not expecting much beyond looking old and creased. This one will crease around the eyes because it is thick. My advice is use a separate light and fluid concealer instead. However, it provided excellent coverage and is amazing at evening out skin tone. My skin did not feel plastered but I do feel that it is not powdery enough to set, so I would suggest a translucent around the nose, chin, forehead to prevent slippage. I only got a tester sample but I am quite keen to get in to the nearest Sleek Make Up stand and get a full size.
Marks and Spencer Lip and Cheek Tint in Pink on cheeks and lips. This is fast becoming a go to staple (specially when I can't find my Bobbi Brown Pot rouge). The lip colour is lovely layered over with e.l.f Moisture Care Lip Colour in Ruby Slipper* to add a shine and juicy look.
Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Care Mascara
Bourjois Liner Stylo in Black on lash lines and brushed through eye brows. I've had this for so long but it is wonderfully smudgy and sets fast. I smudged it lightly to elongate the eyes.
Beauty without Cruelty Blusher in Hot Chestnut* used on the eyes and cheeks. This is also a lovely warm shade, which is so nice if you don't fancy a hugely pink cheeked look.
The necklace was a Valentines present from my adorable husband!
Items marked with * were sent to me for review.
That was a quick! I feel fresh faced and ready to go anywhere!
