Good morning class,
Today I want to talk to you about something I have been MEANING to post about ever since I started this blog. The Sleek Matte Me Lip Creams.
I’m trying to remember whether I bought one of these or one of the Australis Velourlips first. I am pretty sure it was one of these. Back in the day these were raved about upon Makeup Obsessives on Facebook but nowadays I don’t hear much about them any more. Which, is sad, because these are absolutely FANTASTIC products. I bought mine straight from the Sleek website which is where they are the cheapest. Shipping is EXTREMELY cheap. Like literally $2 for 2 products type thing. However it does take a LONG time to get to NZ from there. The Sleek website has been sold out of a few colours for quite a while now which is frustrating. I’d recommend buying off www.makeup.co.nz which is still SUPER DUPER cheap ($13.95NZ) and they have all the colours in stock and their shipping is super quick.
I have the whole set APART from the red one which is really frustrating, but I think I’ll be ordering off makeup.co.nz very soon to complete my collection. Anyway, it doesn’t matter, a red is a red. These next swatches you are about to see will blow your mind. They are a BIG hit with the kids at school too. Especially Brink Pink.
Those are wet swatches but basically these lip creams apply wet and dry matte. I would say the formula is in between the consistencies of the Australis Velourlips and the Lime Crime Velevetines. It’s wetter than the Velourlips but not as wet as the Velvetines.
The colours are absolutely amazing though, aren’t they?! So vibrant and as pigmented as that on the lips. I ALWAYS get compliments when I wear these shades. ALWAYS.
They’re obviously a bit drying on the lips, being matte lip creams but they’re not TOO bad compared to some similar products. They’re probably my favourite formula that I’ve tried of this type of product. They last for forever, they don’t transfer, they’re vibrant and pigmented and they look BOSS.
Brink Pink was my first shade and it’s my favourite. There’s something about it and it’s unlike any pink shade I own. The colour is out of this world.
Birthday suit is a gorgeous Kylie Jenner nude and the best thing is – it lasts all day! Very flattering on the lips and suits anyone. Probably the most popular and well known shade too – and first to sell out so get in quick!
Petal is a gorgeous nude pink shade which is super flattering and doesn’t wash me out at all. It’s absolutely gorgeous. I love shades like these! It’s slightly darker on the lips when it’s dry but I like it like that.
Fandango Purple is a SUPER bright purple that gets ALOT of attention. Don’t wear this one if you don’t want to be noticed. It’s an amazing colour and I love it with a neutral eye.
Party Pink is a reddy pink and it looks so nice. Really wearable and good for everyday. I don’t get as much wear out of it as I do with the others but I think it’s because I’ve got so many similar colours. I find it very similar to Impassioned by Mac.
Overall, these lip creams are the bomb.com. I would 10000% recommend them and honestly, I find them so underrated. If you don’t have one in your collection then what are you doing!? They’re so cheap but such great quality and HEAPS of product inside. Sleek is a fantastic brand I’d recommend checking them out.
