BB creams of various brands created a stir in the cosmetic market, a while ago. Sleek Makeup too had come up with their BB cream which was a very impressive product! Well, as we move ahead, it’s time for the CC cream to make an appearance in the market. The new Sleek Makeup CC cream claims to mattify, moisturise, boost radiance & provide UV protection as well. That sounds like a perfect everyday tinted cream, doesn’t it? All right then, you can scroll down to have a read at my experience with this product.

In the mirror of my own experience
The packaging is pretty simple- white tube with a black cap. It is however very sturdy, light weight & therefore travel friendly. I can easily slip it into my handbag & carry wherever I want to. The name of the shade is mentioned in bold just above the cap.
Shade and Texture
I choose “LIGHT” for myself as I felt that perhaps “FAIR” would be for the for the all the more lighter (European) complexion. Well, I was wrong, not about my decision, but about the knowledge of my own skin tone. Ideally, FAIR would have gone best with my skin shade. Light proves to be the best for the wheatish fair complexion that many Indians possess, while it is slightly on the darker side for my skin. However, the light version which was a touch too beige at first actually lightened up a bit when I applied on my face so expect some oxidation and for me it’s a good type of oxidation once applied! It, however, have an amazingly balanced texture, blends perfectly into the skin, almost adapting to it (‘almost’- in my case).
I apply the cream in dots on my face and neck simply like my BB cream and then blend the dots with my fingers well. It blends and absorbs very easily into skin and provides a second skin-like finish that melds with your own tone to even it out, brighten it, and create a very natural, fresh finish. I don’t have oily skin but I didn’t feel this awfully mattifying on application, neither is it shiny, greasy, or oily so it should be suitable for a range of skin types.
Although this CC cream won’t hide major ruddiness, dark spots, or blemishes and scarring, it will however, take your own natural skin tone and brighten it while evening it out and creating a very fresh look on skin! After applying it, I don’t need anything else, not even a concealer or powder- a natural day look. If you have some dark spots or blemishes, you will need a concealer and a compact powder if you have oily skin. This CC cream has now become an essential part of my makeup box. It stays for around 8 hours on me without setting with the powder. Surely a 9-5 duty!

If you haven’t much dark spots or redness in your face, you find everything in this CC cream so I think it’s an amazing product from Sleek Makeup and totally a WINNER.
