Lips: Sleek Matte Me

05 April 2014

This post has been in the drafts section of A Journal of Everything for a while now as I was just dreading the swatches. I knew that if I was to create swatches on my lips then it would just be a nightmare to get off and I would end up scrubbing bright red and purple around my mouth. A total clown look. I therefor decided to do the quick and easy swatch to give you an idea of the colours.

The Sleek Matte Me are available for £4.99 which is a great price for such a long lasting product. There are six shades available to pick up from Superdrug and I had picked up the shades Rioja Red, Petal and Fandango Purple.

All three shades are highly pigmented and last hours on the lips. Wearing the red shade on a night out makes your makeup touch ups fuss free and easy. The light pink shade is a great everyday colour and the purple is a nice unique vampy shade when applied onto your lips. 

The one thing I would say about the Matte Me's are that they are extremely drying on the lips so I would advise to use a good lip scrub before hand and also apply a moisturising lip balm underneath. 

Have you tried any of the Sleek Matte Me shades? What one is your favourite?
