Say hello to SleekMakeup's latest offering. Sleek never fail to amaze me with their affordable yet high quality products. Sleek are always on the money when it comes to products, they launched their sleek ink pots, one of the first gel liners to be sold in a drugstore and this time they have taken the lead and paved a new route for affordable drugstore lip paints. The whole concept is reminiscent of the OCC lip tars, INTENSIVELY pigmented and also, mixable. But the difference? Yes, the price of course. I was sent 4 of these little but impressive pigments.
These little wonders remind me of the acrylic paints I use when I paint, however, there is no diluting these with a little drop of water, what you see is what you get and boy are these intense! One small drop goes a long way, a very long way so I can imagine these lasting forever! A small bead is all you need for a fully covered, mind blowing lip that will last for hours and eventually dry into a satin finish.
You may be wondering why there is a white and a blue lip paint? well these are designed for mixing, the white lip paint mixed with another colour will give you a more cooler tone whereas the blue will give you a more warmer tone, clever huh? The best way to apply these would be with a lip brush for a smooth and precise application, Fingers would be a less wiser option, I can imagine messy and stained fingers, not a good look.
The only down side to these is the smell, they smell fairly artificial, almost like acrylic paints.
