It’s not as drying as some of my other Sleek lipsticks actually, and it’s got quite a nice satin style finish. It’s very orange toned on me though, so I find it’s not quite the colour I want. I decided to play with some of my other lip glosses and mix up finishes and shades to try and create something I might like a little more than the shade on it’s own. So here are the looks I played about with:
This is a really classic lip gloss finish, very glossy and shiny, but these Models Own lip glosses aren’t sticky, which I like. They do apply thickly though but it makes a really pretty finish. I like this combo, it’s not too different from Peaches and Cream on it’s own though…but it definitely adds something, more depth I think.
I love the finish of these Collection 2000 Cream Puffs, they’re silky and a little matte and I wanted to see how they’d work over the top of a satin style lipstick. It just amplifies the finish, but I really really love this coral/red it’s created! This is probably my favourite combination out of all three.
These MUA Out There Plumping Lip Glosses give a slight tingle to plump up the lips, as you can see it definitely works! I think this finish is similar to the first one but it’s more pinker due to the tone of the lip gloss. This makes the orange tone of the lipstick far more subtle and I think it’s super cute and quite spring toned!
A couple of things about the Sleek lipstick that bug me a tiny bit are that 1. it’s really tiny and 2. you have to properly rip the packaging open to get inside it but otherwise I do really like this. It’s totally not a shade i’d normally pick, but when toned down with one of those options above I love the overall look, a pinky coral tone that pops due to my dark hair colour. I think it’s an absolute bargain and i’m definitely wanting to try a couple more! It’s helped changed my view of Sleek and made me want to play with some more Sleek items I have now!
Sleek True Colour Lipsticks retail at just £4 from Superdrug and online.
