Hi my lovely gems! How are you all? I think I’m coming down with a cold… A big fat BOO to that! Anyways, I was in Superdrug the other day & thought I’d get myself acquainted with the new DARK lip colour trend! Especially after seeing Rebecca Ferguson rocking the PLUM lips on The X Factor the other week! I think you can probably tell by now that I’m addicted to the show! LOL
RRP: £3.69 Sleek True Colour Lipstick
I really didn’t want to spend an ARM or LEG for this trend because as we all know… It’s not gonna be around forever! But then again, I still wanted it to look NICE on my lips, at the same time! This was my first Sleek lippy buy, & I’m very impressed… Especially because it’s cheap & cheerful at the same time!
I love the MATTE packaging of the lip stick! Makes it look really professional. Also the product is quite small so will fit into any of my little clutch bags for a night out
I thought it would be really pigmented and look really HARSH on my lips (I know it’s supposed to be very dark, but I was a little scared to put it on! LOL) But, you can build up the colour to make it darker, which is ideal for me!
I used this with quite a fuchsia-ish lip liner as an all over base for my lips (which may have made the lippy a little lighter in colour)… But I don’t think I’ll rush out and get a dark lip liner because I liked the outcome of it I’m not used to wearing dark colours on my lips so it was a little weird getting used to but I REALLY like the colour!!
I ALWAYS put a lip balm on before I apply lip sticks – it helps the lippy GLIDEon with minimal effort :) This lipstick has VITAMIN E in it which actually felt really nice on! I don’t think I needed the extra balm on (it’s made it look extra glossy/shiny which I love!) I really liked the product as a whole & will be keeping an eye out for Sleek lipsticks in the future
What do you think of the colour? Will you be ROCKIN’ dark lips this season? Or is it not your thing? I may wear this out over the weekend (let’s hope I’m BRAVE enough! Hehe :))
P.S – I’ll be doing the lip stick tooth TRICK too when I wear this… I don’t want it on my teeth
