This week Sleek have released a new lipstick range consisting of 20 lippies and I’m very excited to show you four of them today. I’ll admit I have a few too many lipsticks, but I NEED these in my collection – they’re definitely up there on a par with the famous Barry M lippies!
L-R Amped (matte), Stiletto (matte), Peach & Cream (sheen), Barely There (sheen).
Amped - a vibrant, purple based pink – very bright and daring but perfect for nights out!
Stiletto - a stunning, dark, blue based red. On my pale skin this lipstick looks incredible, but also drains any colour from my face as its such a pigmented, dark red. I feel like a vamp when I wear this and I love it – although wouldn’t wear it every day, only on special occasions.
Peaches & Cream – As soon as I saw this I knew I’d love it and I do. Its a gorgeous light, peach orange and I suspect this will be popular. It is quite bright and pigmented though so I’ve been wearing this lightly dabbed on the lips.
Barely There – My ABSOLUTE favourite. I adore this lippie, the colour is beautiful and like a pink nude with a tint of peach – I hardly look like I’m wearing anything on my lips. Very comparable to Barry M’s #150, but a bit more moisturizing!
What I think – The colours in this new range are beautiful, very pigmented, really unique and eye catching, although some of the formula’s are quite drying (like Barry M lippies). Barely There is definitely the most moisturizing which is probably one of the reasons it is my favourite. Amped and Peaches & Cream do apply quite patchy and can be quite drying but this isn’t a problem as long as you apply lots of lip balm before use and take your time applying them evenly (you can even apply a clear balm or gloss on top to keep them looking soft). These retail on Sleek’s website and in Superdrug stores for only £3.99 a lipstick – such a good price for a good quality, pigmented lippie!
