Review: Sleek True Colour lipsticks

I picked up these three lipsticks quite a few weeks ago on a whim from Superdrug, they were on offer so that always helps!  They’re still pretty cheap at £4.99, so a bargain either way you slice it.

I grabbed two matte finished lipsticks and one sheen finish lipstick.  I love the oval packaging and they’re quite small, so nice and handy to pop into a makeup bag or clutch!

(L-R) Plush; Exxxagerate; Smother

Plush and Exxxagerate are the matte shades and Smother has the sheen finish.   The matte lipsticks have great pigmentation and only pull a little bit on your lips during application.  They apply quite opaque and stain a bit so it don’t fade completely throughout the day.  They do dry the lips quite a bit – like most matte lipsticks, but I simply rubbed my finger over my lips to remove any dried lipstick and then reapply when I needed a touch up.   Smother is really lovely to apply, it goes on smoothly and last really well.  It looks much darker in the bullet than it actually swatches and is slightly more sheer than the matte lipsticks.  Again it has great pigmentation and the sheen is just stunning on the lips – it really brightens my face.  You can see in the picture below, the sheen is stunning.

I’m really impressed with these lipsticks.  I think they’re a bargain at £4.99 and definitely worth investigating further! There seems to be a great range of colours so I’m sure you’d find a colour to suit you in the selection.  You can get them directly from the Sleek website or from your local Superdrug.

I’ve also done a video about these lipsticks if you fancy checking it out!
