I promised to do a detailed review of the items that I got during my last Luxola SG haul so here goes the first item that I tried from the haul. 🙂 It’s the Sleek Makeup Base Duo Kit.
The first time a held this, I fell inlove with the packaging. It is matte and has a velvety finish same with the packaging of Nars palettes. It is also quite heavy but I didn’t mind since I’m getting a cream foundation and a setting powder in one compact. Because it’s heavy I expected it to be sturdy but boy was I wrong. The packaging is flimsy and it cracked and I don’t how the hell it cracked when I haven’t even dropped it. 🙁 I hope I only got a bad batch since I want to try out more Sleek products.
I didn’t really think I’ll be able to wear this since I got a shade that’s a bit darker for me that time but since I got a few shades darker after our Pangasinan trip. I was able to use it and finally do a review.
The Sleek makeup base duo kit is a 2-layer base kit which makes it perfect to bring along with you on a daily basis since it’s compact and saves space on your makeup kit. If mine doesn’t crack, I’m pretty sure It’ll be a mainstay in my makeup kit. It also has a right-sized mirror in each layer.
The cream foundation in the shade Latte has a strong warm undertone at first but blends well with the skin. I only used a damp makeup sponge in applying it and it provides light to medium coverage. If you want more coverage, you can layer it up and it will still blend out seamlessly. It won’t cake up. I promise!
The cream foundation alone offers a dewy finish. Anyways, will update this post once I’ve tried applying it with a brush to see if it will yield different results.
The staying power is superb. I have oily skin and I only start to get oily after 4 hours. Thanks to the setting powder! The cream foundation doesn’t slide off your skin and it doesn’t transfer too. If you have dry and normal skin, I’m pretty sure it can last you a whole day with a minimal need for touch ups.

Overall I love this Sleek Makeup Base Duo kit. I’m actually considering of ordering another one so I can bring it with me on my makeup bag. It’s the only foundation that matches my skin tone right now anyways.
