Lean, mean and powered by caffeine

Some days a caffeine boost is essential and, as this is hump day, it’s safe to assume that today is sponsored for many of you by two lattes and an Americano!

SleCrtPTo create a flawless base, try Sleek Foundation Crème to Powder in Coffee Bean (other shades available). This provides a super-smooth finish, with medium-to-full coverage that is perfect for concealing dark circles and blemishes.

Great for on-the-go touch ups and with added SPF 15 protection, Crème to Powder promotes healthy skin and defends against daily sun exposure. Slightly dampen the enclosed sponge for flawless application.
