Sleek MakeUP Crème to Powder Foundation: Chocolate Fudge

During the warmer months I tend to opt for a powder foundation to counter my oily T-Zone, rummaging through my make-up bag the other day I found myself reaching for my Sleek MakeUp Crème to Powder foundation and smiling.  Sleek offer a wide range of foundation shades for WOC (28 no less), so I was a little daunted but the gods on me and I stumbled onto their Pop-Up event in Stratford where an excellent make-up artist matched me to Chocolate Fudge. 

How do I apply?
After applying a primer I will use a stippling brush (or my Elf Powder Brush) to apply this crème texture foundation. The texture converts to a powder with the finish ranging from medium to full depending on application.

Pros, Cons
The colour match, price point and decent size allow this foundation to be a regular for me. It is extremely rare for me to find a foundation in a high street store that just works with my skin tone so kudos to Sleek / Superdrug for creating a decent product and stocking it in their stores. The compact has survived a LOT of trauma in  my bag so I can truthfully attest to it's durability; be warned- it will cake if you use too much so be careful and unlike some foundations, I find that it transfers easily if it isn't set with a powder.

Are you a strictly liquid or do you mix textures depending upon the seasons too?
