Sleek Make-Up have jumped on the BB Cream bandwagon, okay a little later than some brands
but anything worth having is worth the wait and this is very much the case with this BB Cream.
Unlike some UK brands Sleek Make-Up have catered to most skin ones from the very fair
to those with a deeper complexion which is demonstrated across four shades - fair, light, medium
and deep.

Although Sleek Make-Up is a UK essentially a drug store brand the packaging for this product
looks and feels high end, it reminds me a little of the likes of Nars and Bobbi Brown.
Very chic and well though out not only in aesthetics but also practicality due to the squeeze style 
which works well with the texture of this particular product.

Sleek Make-Up Be Beautiful Blemish Balm is enriched with red algae extract which is renowned for it's
anti ageing properties and peptides which help repair damaged skin.
It also contains Vitamin C to brighten and add a luminous touch to the skin
as well as Vitamin E to protect the skin from UV damage, not to mention a dash of jojoba oil
for a moisturising formulation.

As mentioned Sleek Make-Up Be Beautiful Blemish Balm comes in four shades,
I was sent Fair which sadly is far too light for my skin tone even when blended in within an inch of it's life!
Fair is a really light yellow based almost Ivory shade which should suit most pale skin tones
as it is fairly neutral without being strongly yellow in tone.
Looking at online swatches I will probably have to purchase both light and medium in order to blend
a shade to suit my skin tone but I speculating here and going off on a tangent yet again!

I'm sure many are fed up of reading about how UK/European/US/Canadian BB Cream formulas
fall a little short of the original Eastern formulas and I agree but I do feel we are getting closer 
and Sleek Make-Up's offering is perhaps the closest to an Asian BB Cream I have encountered.
The texture is thick, creamy yet easy to apply and comfortable to wear offering medium coverage with one layer and full coverage with two layers, this is not a tinted moisturiser this has great coverage - it covers my acne scars and doesn't settle into pores or fine lines.

Sleek Make-Up Be Beautiful Blemish Balm is quite moist so it will be better suited to those with dry -normal skin types, oily skins like myself may find it a little too moist for their skin type.
On my oily skin this wore for around 6 hours but I really do believe on other skin types this will
fare much better and have less of a slip.

It offers an SPF 15 and can be used as a primer, base or concealer but truthfully I find it to work best 
as base which has a dewy finish, it can look a little shiny/wet without a dusting of powder
but other than that I do find it to be the best UK offering of a beauty balm thus far
and do recommend giving it a whirl especially if you have normal/dry skin.

Sleek Make-Up Be Beautiful Blemish Balm* launches the 29th August £8.99/50ml
and will be available from selected Superdrug stores and via Sleek's webstore.
