Sleek MakeUp - Matte Me & Gloss Me

(L-R) Matte me : Rioja Red, Fandango Purple // Gloss me :  Kiss & Tell and Rose

A lot of products land on my desk and one collection I was quite eager and excited to try was the new selection of lip products from Sleek cosmetics. This month Sleek will be launching a mix of gloss and matte lip colours, each of which will come in six shades.
If I'm honest the 'gloss me' weren't really my cup of tea, I'm not an overly glossy kind of girl and although these are quite pretty, the irredecence/pearl like finish put me off. I also found them to feel too sticky on my lips. (I'm really not a gloss girl!)

Let's face it now for me, it now I was all about the 'matte me' liquid lipstick! You all know how much I adore matte lips and how obsessed I am with the Sephora cream lip stains. I really wanted to see how the new matte additions from Sleek would compare.

I initially liked the applicator and the consistency, however once on my lips I found them to be drying and uncomfortable to wear. The colour also isn't as strong as it appears, I used a lip liner to intensify the red as without it I just found the colour to be too patchy.

I do love how bold and intense 'Rioja Red' looks in the pictures and I also adore the colour of 'Fandango Purple' but I found this one didn't last on my lips - Sad times. I do feel a little bit let down by the Matte Me's!  Looks like I will be sticking to my Sephora's! I can honestly eat a whole meal and my lip colour stays put - Such a winner. 

Will you be checking out the new additions from Sleek? 

FYI This make up look above will be my next video tutorial - Hopefully up this weekend! 
Have a good one - Enjoy the sunshine :) 

Lots of Love

  3. Too bad that they are disappointing, not what I expected from sleek. I need to get my hands on the sephora ones!
