Sleek True Colour Lipstick

On May 16th I received a newsletter from Sleek MakeUP promoting their new lipsticks, True Colour. Normally I'm not very interested in lip products because I'm extremely good at purchasing, and not half as good when it comes to using and wearing. I'm also one of those who find it intimidating to wear a bold lip which is quite frustrating since I actually own quite a few lipsticks, but also because I love bright colors. I ended up disregarding my own principals and ordered three of the True Colours: "Papaya Punch", "Coral Reef" and "OMG".

Mr. Postman brought them to me only five days after ordering - and my first impression of these lipsticks was very good. They come in a sleek (no pun intended) black oval tube with the same feel as rest of their packaging. My initial thought was that these tubes were a lot smaller than for instance those from M·A·C, but they are in fact 3.5 grams and that's .5 grams more than said competitor. I'm unsure why I picked three so similar colors, but I'm quite happy with my choice anyway. Coral is one of my favorite colors for summer, and it seems like "Papaya Punch" and "Coral Reef" are pretty much identical apart from the fact that "Papaya Punch" is a matte lipstick, while both "Coral Reef" and "OMG" are sheens. I swatched quickly them on my hand, and they are all very soft and pigmented.

Sleek True Colour lipsticks are €7 each, which would be about 55,- NOK.

  1. Så nydelige! De to første blir i alle fall satt opp på ønskelisten min!

    • Jeg ble veldig positivt overrasket over disse leppestiftene. Jeg er usikker på om jeg har guts nok til å bruke dem ute, de er blendende fargerike, men jeg blir virkelig glad av å se på dem. Tror kanskje jeg liker Papaya Punch bittelitt bedre enn Coral Reef, siden førstnevnte er matt (og overraskende myk og smidig til å være nettopp matt).. men de er så og si identiske ellers.

      Hvis de er blant de som kommer i premien jeg venter, så kan du overta dem! Jeg skal si fra når de kommer. Alt jeg vet er at jeg vant 10 forskjellige, men ikke hvilke – og jeg trenger ikke to av de jeg allerede har. Smile

  2. Ser underbara ut alla tre Smile
    Korall, persika, gult och rosa är mina favoritfärger för denna sommar…

    • De er absolutt verdt å sjekke ut! Korall og fersken er farger jeg er glad i året rundt. Tror jeg skal skaffe meg Essie Haute as Hello og Essie Sweet as a Button neglelakker, tror de er perfekte til sommerbrun hud. Smile

  3. How pretty! I’m sure they’d look perfect on your tan self Smile And the price is unbeatable, isn’t it? Smile
