Hi dolls. How was your weekend? I totally went crazy & bought loads of lip sticks… SIX to be exact! Superdrug had an offer on Sleek’s True Colour lippies so I snapped up some of them, along with 2 Collection 2000 ones.
Sleek have recently expanded their ‘TRUE COLOUR‘ lip stick range to . I got ‘Candy Cane’, ‘Liqueur’, ‘Pink Freeze’ & ‘Heartbreaker’. They were on offer, 2 for £6… I couldn’t refuse it They come in either sheen or as a matte finish. I got 2 of each.
I would have walked straight past ‘Liqueur’ but as soon as I swatched it on my hand I knew it would be a lovely nude colour. It has a gorgeous purpley-gold undertone which would TOTALLY suite Asian skin tones. The first two are sheen and the last 2 are matte.
The sheen lip sticks glide onto your lips really easily AND stay for a fair few hours too. The matte isn’t as matte as my NARS Pure Matte Lipsticks but it’s still a nice finish. I always get pulled to all the pinky colours! I tried to stay away from corals as I got ‘Vegas Volt’ by MAC last week… & to be honest, a girl can’t have too many pink lip sticks
They can stain your lips slightly, but that’s what you get for highly pigmented products! As a whole, I’m SUPER happy with these Sleek lippies! If I ever need a colour (stat!) then I can always rely on them (seeing as I don’t have a MAC in my town)
I’ve got one other Collection 2000 ‘Lasting Colour’ lip stick (in Berry Blast – which I absolutely LOVE!) so I thought I’d have a quick look to just see what other colours they have to offer. I picked up 2 shades of pink. I love how they don’t break the bank either
‘Pink Shock’ is a lovely Barbie pink, but isn’t too much on your lips (it seems to get toned down due to the colour of my lips). ‘Sweet Tart’ reminds me of a pinkier verson of ‘Vegas Volt’ by MAC – so those of you that are too scared to wear that you can always FEED your lips a bit of ‘Sweet Tart’ I love how moisturising & easily they apply!
‘Sweet Tart’ smells gorgeous too!
Here are some lip swatches of my favourites… I actually like them ALL, but thought I’d swatch these 4 for you dolls.
Seeing as I’ve been wearing bright lips a lot recently, I’m definitely going to make good use of these this Summer! What lip stick are you LOVING at the moment? Or what lip stick do you RUSH to for a bit of colour in your life?
