Hey loves, welcome back to this corner of the internet. I wanted to talk to you guys about Sleek Matte Me lipsticks, as I have added more to my collection. Some of you guys may already know I adore this product, as I talked about them quite a few times over here. You can read about my favourite two shades [here] or even see a swatch video of my collection [here]. Today I have three more colours to share with you, so read on to find out what I think of the latest shades.
I’m not going to talk too much about how much I love these products and all the pros and cons, you can read all about that in the blog posts I mentioned above. Instead I want to show you the shades and talk a little about how they looked on me. These launched early this year, and I’ll be honest I was a little nervous about testing these out as some of the shades are just SO out of my comfort zone. But of course, I had to tempt fate and try them out. I wanted to see if I could make them work, make them suit me, to see if they could remain in my collection.
Sleek Matte Me in Crushed Lavender
This is a tube of pastel toned lilacy goodness. Okay I’ll admit, even I thought it was a little too bold for me. I actually first swatched this shade at work with pretty much only mascara on. It was fair to say I scared a few people. However with a bit of glam on, I think I might be able to rock it. What do you think? I would say to wear lip liner with this so your lips are even before application. I think there are lots of people that can rock this comfortably, I’m just sad I’m not once of those because I am a wimp and am scared to brave bold shades like this in public. I hope to one day be brave enough to just rock it. However I will definitely keep this in my collection, just for some fun and edgy looks I plan to try out. You can pick this shade up [here] for £4.99
Sleek Matte Me in Apricot Blooms
Next we have another pastel, this is a pastel peach shade. This I would say, is a tad too light for my complexion which is a shame as it is such a pretty colour. I tried playing with different lip liners underneath but I just think it is a bit too bright and too light for me. To make it a little wearable for myself, I applied MAC Spice lipliner (review here) underneath and then patted on the liquid lipstick on top. It is a very richly pigmented shade however and could be a winner for the right skin tone. You can pick this shade up [here] for £4.99
Sleek Matte Me in French Fancy
This is my favourite of the three. I love pinks, so of course this ticked that box. It is a bit pastel in shade, but not as much as the others. It is also quite bright and pretty and a lot more wearable than the other two shades. It makes me feel all girly which is never a bad thing. It is very richly pigmented as well. I apply it with a nude pink lip liner underneath just so the edges are perfect and opaque. I actually wore this shade out recently so managed to take a picture of a full face of makeup so I thought I would add in those images for. Bear in mind picture has had a filter added and edited. If you want to know what other products I am wearing for this look it is all on my IG page (@makeupatoz). You can pick this shade up [here] for £4.99
Although one of the shades was a little too out of my comfort zone, I am glad they created that shade as it will definitely work on other skin tones. I am actually quite proud of the fact that I soft off pulled off Lavender Crush, I’ll try to create more looks with it. I hope you liked my review of these Sleek Matte Me liquid lipsticks. Let me know which of these shades you wouldn’t mind trying out. Oh, if you’d like any details of the products I used to create the above makeup looks, be sure to head over to Instagram, all the information is on there. Speak soon, Tanzina x
