Sleek True Colour Lipsticks - Matte


Sleek is unquestionably one of the top-notch high-street beauty labels out there. It is right on top of my 'go-to beauty brands for looking beautiful on a budget' list. I love everything, from their prettifying blushes to their sculpting contour kits. 



Can't get enough of their 'True Colour' lipsticks. The textures vary from matte to sheen and the pigments are intense and gorgeous. There are beautiful and blazing shades to choose from and over the past year i've managed to bag 8 bullets from the matte line. 



From L-R Stiletto, Exagerrate, Bare all, Vamp, Russian Roulette, Papaya Punch, Mystic, Plush.

Stiletto is a nice, blue based red. I'd say it's Sleek's response to Mac's Ruby woo.

Exagerrate is a dark purple number. It is darker than it looks and you need a dauntless attitude to pull this one off.

Bare all is a lovely peachy coral that gives a demure look.

Vamp is a dark berry red. It'll be a good dupe for Mac's 'Diva'.  I find it very sophisticated. 

Russian Roulette is a gorge brick red.

Papaya punch is a bright coral-orange with a hint of pink.

Mystic is one of the hottest colours in this range. It's a bright magneta pink and I see it suiting any skin tone.

Plush is near raspberry pink. It has some subtle silver bits in it, too.


In terms of staying power, i'd say 7.5/10. But I am always ready to whip out my lippy and reapply if need be.

The lippies also contain vitamin E for protection and hydration. This shouldn't deter you from using lip balm before application because some of them can create patches. 

I'll provide swatches for my sleek 'sheen' collection soon.

Side note ~ I think i'm gradually getting better at photography. Brother gives me tips occasionally.

Stay beautiful mi lovely B-Fashionistas!
