SLEEK Makeup LIPSTICKS - WHY SO UNDERHYPED?!


Hello lovelies!
I hope your week has had a lovely weekend! Before writing this post I was asking myself "what brand deserves more hype?" and Sleek came to mind. For some reason I can't really explain, I tend to just walk past their little stand in Superdrug whenever I am looking for lipsticks. I know their palettes are great. I know their face contour kit is great. Why do I just not branch out a little? Am I the only one that gets used to purchasing a certain types of product for each brand? I don't know why as a blogger I still skip and play "safe". I really need to change that. 

I was sent these Sleek True Colour lipsticks* in the post a few weeks ago and I am so grateful for that because now I have something new in my stash which is too full of Rimmel, Maybelline and Mac. I am completely sold on them so I want to try and see if any of you girls will want to go and swatch them next time you're out and about looking for new makeup. 

Packaging : The packaging is (surprise, surprise) very sleek, simple and handy. I like the velvety/gummy texture that makes it feel Nars-like hence more expensive. They're very purse-friendly and practical which is nice if you're using a dark shade and you need to carry it around to touch-up. 
Price : £4.99
The Finish : Very creamy. Definitely moisturising (and they contain vitamin E to protect your lips!) It doesn't matter if you choose a more matte finish, you're still not going to get a drying effect. 
The Longevity : I would say a good 4 hours for sure, a little more with darker shades because they do stain your lips. It fades fairly homogeneously so it is pretty nice since you won't end up looking like a 5 year old did your makeup. 
Final Thoughts : I really do believe these lipsticks need more hype. I know probably most of you walk past the sleek stand like I did until very recently but it is worth to try these gems. You won't be disappointed. I also reviewed their glosses if you were curious
SCORE : 9/10 




SHADE - LIQUEUR

  1. Oh I love Sleek lipsticks!i have a few now but I must admit I did start off buying their palettes only. Have you tried their lip pallettes? There's one called Ballet & the colours are really good if you want that much sought after 90's brown/Kylie Jenner look :) xx

  7. I have the shade barely there. I find the colour sinks in to my lip lines and makes them look aged. I don't know if the other shades are the same :)

  8. I really love Sleek products and I completely agree they do need more hype! But like you I've kind of only ever bought their face palettes (I'm addicted to their blushes) but the lipsticks look great and so affordable too. I feel like I'm gonna have to buy some next time I see them.

  28. I'd never even considered buying Sleek Lipsticks before, and for that price too! That Liqueur shade looks so pretty, may have to make a little investment!
