I never used to be much of a concealer person, I didn't even own one to a while after I started my blog. But times have changed even if my skin hasn't much and I've really come around to the idea of flawless skin. My latest concealer venture is this fab little palette from Sleek, which I'm thinking is an online exclusive as I haven't seen it in Superdrug! I know a few of you have been waiting for this, so I hope you enjoy!
As always I've included a summary at the end :)
This palette from Sleek is a very compact little kit containing a correcting concealer, a standard concealer and a setting powder. Both concealers have a creamy formula to them, but I like it! In total you're getting 4.2g of product for £7.99 - not the best value around. But still pretty darn good for the variety! It comes in 5 shades catering for a large range of skintones - the shade I have is 01. The only other thing worth mentioning here is that the setting powder has an SPF15 in it.
The concealers both have a really great creamy consistency that isn't too thick. This is great because it means that it applies like a dream and doesn't have that tacky feel that some thicker cream based concealers can. As for longevity, it does last most of the day, but there is some noticeable fading towards the end of the day. But the pretty much opaque coverage makes up for it!
The corrector shade has a slight pinky salmon tone to it, which works perfectly to brighten under the eyes - a very noticeable difference. The regular shade is slightly warm toned and a touch too light for my skin, but not so much that I can't use it!
At first I thought this was a slightly odd inclusion, but actually it really has a place here and I'm pleased to say I've been getting a lot of use out of it! Although it does looks like it's going to last a lot longer than the concealers. That aside, this has a very slight yellow tone to it, which doesn't show on the skin except for making it seem slightly more even. There's nothing particularly exciting about a powder in my eyes, but it does the job, and does it well!
|I'm wearing all three products in this picture :)|
The Good - very good coverage, 3in1, corrector shade works well under the eyes, compact, value, great texture - not too thick.
The Not so Good - Not a huge amount of product, I already hit pan on one of the concealers!
Would I repurchase? Oh absolutely, I prefer this to the Collection (2000) Lasting Perfection which was my favourite before I tried this!
Who might like it? Those that want a good coverage concealer! Although if not set well I can see this settling into fine lines a little - although I can't really test this as I'm only 21!
