Today I will be talking about another affordable beauty/makeup item that works well, especially for us busy mums! It is none other than Sleek Makeup’s Matte Me liquid lipsticks. They come in 7 shades, from a rose nude colour to the darkest, berry/plum colour for a vampy look or just a shade for the colder months. At £4.99 they are also a steal for the price!
The two I purchased and have used are called Fired up and Vino Tinto . A beautiful red and a deep plum, shades that will complement a spectrum of complexions. They can definitely be worn for all occasions and all year round, but will surely be used quite a lot in the autumn winter months!
The formula is quite thick but spreads very well and evenly on the lips. When it dries, your lips don’t feel straw dry and overly chapped which helps. It comes with your standard lip wand, so you do have to be a bit careful when applying at the edges of your lips. If you do make a mistake though, it’s no biggie. Nothing that little concealer won’t fix and correct. ;D
Fired up is the red shade. It looks like deep blue toned red in the tube. I was quite surprised that it applied a little lighter. It applied smoothly and dried matte within a matter of seconds. It dried uniform with no patches or lighter areas on my lips which I liked. I only applied one coat, but I am definitely sure that if I applied another it would have intensified the colour.
Vino Tinto is the deep plum shade. I fell in love with the colour as soon as I saw it! It looked the perfect colour for the winter months. The colour intensity does diminish slightly when it is applied to the lip. It went on a little patchy and I did have to reapply it in a few places on my lips to make the colour uniform. I have tried this colour with a lip liner which does intensify the colour further making it stand out more and appear a bit darker. However, for the price, it is still workable.
All in all, the Sleek Matte Me liquid lipsticks are good value for money. Not everyone can afford the higher end products on the market, but with these liquid lipsticks you can still look trendy and on fleek like every other woman out there while being kind to your purse strings!
Until next time,
