I having been trying out a few products from Sleek recently and I have been really enjoying the VIP Lipsticks. I don't typically wear a lot of lipstick as I usually prefer a gloss or tint but these may have changed my mind! Sleek has a great range of affordable makeup and if you are looking for some new lipsticks, check these out next time you are in Boots or Superdrug.
Swatched: Private Booth, Backstage, Night Spot
The Sleek VIP Lipsticks are available in six different shades and I currently have half of the available shades. These lipsticks are going to give the lips a semi matte finish, with intense pigmentation in a creamy formula. Each of the lipsticks have vitamin E, Shea Butter and Coconut oil to moisturise and nourish the lips for each application. I really like that on each of the lipsticks on the bottom is a preview of the shade as it makes it so much easier to find the shade you are looking for, especially if you have multiple shades like myself.
The three shades I have are Private Booth which is a nude, Backstage is a warmed coral with a hint of pink and Night Spot is a classic red. Each of the lipsticks are incredibly pigmented and only need one swipe on the lips and your good to go! I am not usually a fan but matte lips, however as these lipsticks are semi-matte I love the way they look on the lips. Each shade is very comfortable to wear and has a velvety finish on the lips. As these lipsticks have nourishing ingredients in they help to keep the lips hydrated throughout the day. I would still recommend that you make sure your lips are exfoliated before application to make sure that the lipsticks don't cling to any dry areas.
My favourite shade out of the three has to be Night Spot and I don't normally like red lipstick! It looks so classic on the lips and it is perfect to complete any makeup look for an evening out. These lipsticks are pretty long lasting on the lips and have the perfect mixture between a matte and sheen finish. The only shade I cannot wear is Private Booth as it looks a little like concealer on my lips but I know of any people who would love this type of shade! I am definitely going to pick up one or two of the other shades available, Reserved looks like my perfect lip colour!
