A review on Sleek Makeup One Finishing Powder

Hi All!
Hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and loads of fun and joy with one and all!
Most of you must be knowing that I am a big fan of Sleek's Eyeshadow products due to various reasons main of which are they are well pigmented, have a wide range of colours and priced affordably!
Superdrugs has been running a 3 for 2 offer on most of their makeup products and so I decided to check it out and paid a visit to their store and went straight to the Sleek counter and purchased the following sleek products - New Skin Revive, Glisten Me & Makeup One.
Instead of reviewing all three of them at once I have decided to review them one at a time and will start with the Sleek Makeup One finishing powder:-

One Finishing Powder

One Finishing Powder:- One is a water based finishing powder and suitable for all skin tones. This is mentioned on the jar:- "Hydrate and set your look with this transparent finishing powder that instantly cools the skin when applied. It can be used alone for a radiant, matte natural finish or to set foundation."

Now for the review in regard to One Finishing Powder:-

Packaging:- The One powder comes in a round plastic compact jar with transparent bottom half and opaque screw on top. On opening the jar you see it has a sifter which is sealed with a round plastic sheet. One should carefully open the jar as the sifter is very big and releases too much of powder at a time and can fly all over if you are not careful.

Shades:- The One powder comes in one shade for all skin tones and I find it very true as its very sheer and wont look odd whatever skin tone you have.

Consistency and staying power:- The One Powder diffuses and reflects light across the face making your skin appear more luminous, is oil absorbing and rich in antioxidants with botanical extracts to provide an immediate cooling sensation on the face. When I applied the powder on my face I felt someone sprayed a mist of cool water on my face! Very nice sensation indeed! I used the One Powder to help set and hold the foundation and it actually does the job very well. It has a very fine texture with tiny light reflecting particles in it which gives a nice glow to the skin and gives a luminous and radiant finish to the skin. I will call this a star product and I say so as I have used many finishing powders but the One powder gives a dewy finish and spreads on really well and doesnt make me look like a white ghost!

Quantity and Pricing:- The quantity in each jar is 8 grams and are priced at £6.99 at Superdrugs.

Hope you found my review on the Sleek Makeup One finishing powder to be useful. If any of you have used this product or planning to do so, please feel free to share it (or Digg it)

p.s do come back again in 2 days to read my review on Sleek Glisten Me Liquid Illuminator :)

  17. hey sonali, does this giv a "glittery" effect to the skin? 'coz i range from nc 43-45 and i dont want something tat will make me look like a disco ball. planing to buy some stuff from their online shop....wat do u say? worth a buy?

    ReplyDelete
  18. @indianmakeupways -it won't give you a glittery effect! The powder itself is very finely milled and contains fine shimmer particles that provide a dewy look and dimension to the skin. Its a good buy for sure! I use this to prevent a cakey, flat and dull finish on skin which you can get sometimes while wearing a matte foundation!
