Review: Sleek True Colour Lipsticks

Sleek is a brand that I have been told so much about – especially in the YouTube beauty community, you’re nobody until you’ve owned a Sleek eyeshadow palette (I haven’t…oops!). I was in Superdrug and saw an amazing offer of 2 Sleek True Colour Lipsticks for £6. It would have been rude to resist…

Sleek True Colour Lipsticks in Mystic and Naked

The two shades I went for were Mystic, which is a gorgeous matte fuchsia colour, and Naked, which is a pure nude shade. I had originally tried to get another shade which was close to Mystic in colour, but found that it wasn’t actually in the deal at the till (don’t you hate it when that happens?)

Sleek Lipstick in Mystic

Let’s start with Mystic – it reminds me so much of my old hair colour! When you first wind the lipstick up out of its little hiding place in the tube, the colour of this really hits you. I was slightly dubious at first, due to my eternal fear of looking like a Barbie, however as soon as I applied it I was a very happy bunny.

Wearing Sleek Mystic Lipstick

Ignoring my odd facial expression, this is how Mystic looks on. I love the fact that is is matte – it gives the option to keep it so, or spruce it up with a lipgloss. This lipstick glides on to the lips like a dream – it almost feels moisturising. The colour is very true to life, which is potentially why they are called True Colour lipsticks (forgive me, I’ve had a long day!). The pigmentation of the lipstick seems almost too good to be true, especially considering the price. I’m also in love with the shape of the tube/container – nothing wrong with a bit of curvy-ness going on!

Sleek Naked Lipstick

I’ve been on the hunt for a good, and reasonably priced, nude lipstick for most of my life (massive exaggeration) – I’m over the moon to have finally found one. This shade, Naked, is everything that Mystic is, and a little more.

Wearing Sleek Naked Lipstick

The shade just perfectly fits my skin colouring – it doesn’t look too brown, and to me is just the epitome of a nude shade. I love the fact that it has a sheen to it, as it stops it from looking like concealer on the lips (why do girls do that? It looks atrocious and so chavvy). Again, the product is so moisturising, which is amazing as I hate hate hate it when lipstick dries your lips out. It’s also very blendable, which is good as you probably don’t want a definite line around the lips – I use my ring finger to blend it out slightly at the edges to make it look even more natural.

So, my first experience with Sleek lipsticks get top marks all round. I literally cannot think of anything negative to say, which isn’t like me at all. This may well be the start of a new brand obsession…

Stay Creative,

      Aww that’s a shame! Perhaps try and combine it with another colour, so you still have a hint of it? 🙂 x

    They suit you both very good, but especially the first one (fuschia pink?) 😀
