Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream Review


Those of you following my Snapchat (graciec93_x) will have heard me repeatedly raving about the Matte Me Lip Creams from Sleek over the past few months so it is high time to feature these beauties on my blog reviews! Read on for swatches, pros, cons, overall impressions and a glimpse of my favourite shades. 





Having developed a mini collection of  Matte Me Lip Creams since their introduction to the Irish market I have been testing out these products for approximately two months.Sleek is honestly one of the best budget beauty brands available today. The quality of their products is unbeatable for such reasonable prices.

Sleek Matte Me Shades

Birthday Suit, Purple Fandango, Brink Pink and Rioja Red are the shades tried and tested by Grace With Love Blog of late. Birthday Suit is the highly popular and best-selling natural nude shade that has made Sleek world renowned. Purple Fandango is a fun and adventurous purple tint. Brink Pink is a vibrant bright pink and Rioja Red is an old Hollywood style red matte lip stain.

Pros

  • Matte finish liquid lipstick glides on in one smooth and handy application
  • One coat is plenty
  • Long-lasting
  • Decent shade range (12 colours now available)
  • Affordable cosmetic product
  • Dupes for high end liquid lipsticks such as Kylie Cosmetics

Cons

  • Colour is often removed after eating so re-application may be necessary during the day
  • Lip creams can be drying on the lips so make sure to apply balm first and exfoliate lips regularly

Overall impressions

I absolutely love the Sleek Matte Me Lip Creams and they have acquired a permanent place on my beauty cabinet. The colour pay-off is absolutely incredible. Rioja Red is probably my least favourite shade, however that is only because I prefer berry toned colours. Birthday Suit without a doubt lives up to the hype and is an essential must-have item. Brink Pink and Purple Fandango are fun colours for those who are daring and like to experiment with adventurous make up and brighter colours. Overall, the Sleek Matte Me range deserves cult status for creating a beautiful collection of lip creams that are easily accessible to all age ranges and budgets. Bravo Sleek!
You can purchase the Matte Me range from Superdrug who often have fantastic offers and are well worth the visit! 

Happy Shopping!
