New Sleek MakeUP Be Beautiful Blemish Balm & GIVEAWAY

Hello ladies, 

Sleek MakeUP have a new offering to their evergrowing range and this time in the form of a blemish balm (BB cream).

'Skincare meets make-up: What product can be used as a primer, tinted moisturiser, contains SPF15, is highly moisturising, conceals blemishes, has anti-aging properties and provides full coverage?...Sleek MakeUP's Be Beautiful Blemish Balm'.
Sleek MakeUP's Be Beautiful Blemish Balm was created to protect, moisturise, conceal and prime the skin whilst brightening your complexion and leaving skin look smooth and radiant. 

Their are 4 shades in the range: fair, light, medium and dark and im sure a lot of you will agree when i say it isnt an extensive selection and there is quite a colour difference between each shade, especially between light and medium so i feel as though some people may need to mix a couple of colours to find their perfect match. I was sent the shade in light which is the 2nd lightest and it is a little bit too dark for my natural NC15 skin tone and suits me much more when i have fake tanned although it will be perfect for holidays. 

I really like the packaging. The product is housed in a black tube that fits in line with other products from the Sleek MakeUP range and is a squeezy tube that holds 50ml so you get quite a lot of product for your money. I havent really tried any other BB creams that the drugstores/highstreet are currently offering although i do know that the Garnier version has been a major hit with bloggers but obviously i cant compare. 

The consistency of the product is extremely thick and opaque in colour. I applied it to my skin using a brush and you really do have to work quickly with the product. I dab a bit on all areas of my face but found that it started to dry up before i had chance to blend and really had to work hard to buff it in. It definitely doesnt offer light coverage like a tinted moisturiser and i found it to be of quite a medium coverage that was buildable if you required a heavier coverage. I applied one layer of the Blemish Balm and then applied another thin layer on areas of my skin that needed concealing slightly more like my chin. 

Once applied to the skin it looks extremely dewy and gives a gorgeous glow. I have quite oily skin so had to be careful of shine and obviously had to powder like i would do with any base product. If you have dry skin i think this would be amazing for you! It sunk into the skin really well and even though it looked radiant it didnt look or feel wet which was a bonus! 

Overall, the Sleek MakeUP Blemish Balm gave extremely good coverage, made my skin look radiant and glowy and is a good alternative for days when im not wanting full coverage especially as it contains SPF15 to protect your skin from harmful rays. 

The Sleek MakeUP Be Beautiful Blemish Balm launches in Superdrug stores nationwide and online at sleekmakeup.com on the 29th August 2012 for £8.99.

  1. That looks quite nice and thick, some BB products I've tried have been a bit thin and watery which put me off them a little but I'd probably give the Sleek one a go after reading this. I'd be the light shade so would love to win one xxx

  4. Great giveaway! This looks closer to a foundation consistency then most BB creams which I have to admit I prefer, I like quite heavy coverage so most BB creams are a bit to light for me! xx
