My Sleek MakeUP True Colour Lipstick Army

WARNING: PICTURE-HEAVY POST!

Over the last year, I have accumulated a few Sleek MakeUP True Colour lipsticks. These are richly pigmented lipsticks that come in an affordable price. There are so many shades to choose from (20+) and they come in a variety of finishes - I have a few matte and sheen lipsticks. I also love the packaging, so sleek. *no pun intended!* They come in small black easy-grip plastic containers that don't look at all cheap. They are pretty light and easy to carry around.



Group hug!

The matte lipsticks are a quite drying *hence matte* and require some lip balm underneath for a smooth application. The Sheen lipsticks are similar to the MAC Amplified Creme finish albeit glossier, so creamy and easy to apply with a single stroke. The staying power is fantastic too.

Here are the individual lipsticks:


Cranberry - Matte dark berry. Previously reviewed here.


Cherry - Glossy dark red.


Stiletto - Matte bright red.


Candy Cane - Glossy hot reddish pink.


Heartbreaker - Matte hot reddish pink. (I think it was a mistake to buy this, looks too similar to Candy Cane!)


Amped - Matte hot bright blue-pink.


Peaches & Cream - Creamy glossy light peach.

Now here are swatches:



Cranberry, Cherry, Stiletto, Candy Cane, Heartbreaker, Amped, Peaches n Cream


And Lip swatches:


Sleek MakeUP Cranberry


Sleek MakeUP Cherry


Sleek MakeUP Stiletto


Sleek MakeUP Candy Cane


Sleek MakeUP Heartbreaker


Sleek MakeUP Amped


Sleek MakeUP Peaches & Cream

*phew, my lips need a break!*

Do you own any of the Sleek MakeUP True Colour lipsticks?
Which is your favourite?



I believe you can purchase this at your local Superdrug or the website: SleekMakeup.com
