Review- Sleek Matte Me Lip Creams

The Sleek Matte Me Lip Creams are not a relatively new releases however due to my UK absence I didn't have the opportunity to pick any up but after a wonderful cold two weeks back in Leeds I finally managed to get my hands on these! What exactly are they? They are a new member to the new liquid lipstick family joining the likes of Rimmel Apocalips and the Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick but for only a mere £4.99.


As the name would suggest, these are matte lipsticks. Now when I say matte I mean MATTE so if you're not a fan of the look or feel of matte lipsticks then this is not for you. I on the other hand have had a long time love for the matte-look. The packaging of this is the same as a lipgloss and it also has a doe foot applicator. It is very creamy when applying onto the lips but you must make sure to work this into the lips with the applicator to get a smooth and even finish as this dries quickly. Try and apply quickly, smoothly and evenly then do not touch until dry! It will dry completely matte and almost transfer resistant. 

I must state that as these are so matte they are quite drying so make sure your lips are prepped, smooth and hydrated before applying this. The wear of this was great it stayed PERFECT for a good 5 hours but by that time I needed to touch up around the corners of my mouth. After 6-7 hours of wear time it does begin to look a bit dry and flaky but you can either take it off and freshly reapply it or smooth on a little lip balm.



There are six shades in the Matte Me range, four of which I picked up. The four shades I bought were (in order of photos) Petal, Blink Pink, Fandango Purple and Rioja Red. There is also another pink in the collection which I have my eye on! Plus a nude brown-pink which would look amazing on dark skin tones!

Petal
Blink Pink

Fandango Purple
Rioja Red
Overall, it is a great product which would be great for a bold night-out lip as the colours are bright and it has great longevity. Even though it is drying and does flake after several hours for £4.99 I really can not complain and will buy more colours if they are released!
Have you tried the Sleek Matte Me Lip Creams?
