Sleek Pout Paint

If you thought Sleek's Pout Polishes were pigmented and bright, then you'll love what Sleek have up for release next.

The very awaited Pout Paints!

I got to try them out and play with various colours at their blogger event a few months back and was absolutely impressed by their pigmentation and quality. I tried making a hot pink colour and even wore it for the entire day then.

There are 11 shades in total and I have five with me to show you guys today namely Pin Up, Mauve Over, Peachy Keen, Cloud 9 and Peek a bloo.




Now before you think its plain silly to have shades like Peek a bloo and Cloud 9, let me tell you that these are not meant to be worn alone (unless of course you want to!). Peek a bloo is designed to warm up the shades and Cloud 9 can be used to cool them down. 

In simple terms, mixing a blue colour will intensify and darken the shade, whereas mixing a white will tone it down and lighten it. 

I am wearing Peachy Keen, Mauve Over and Pin Up below. Can you see how opaque and intensely pigmented they are? A Make-up artists dream I would say. 


And what's the fun in having a 'paint' without being able to mix it. Yes its compulsory! 

I am not overtly creative but still managed to come up with a few wearable shades by a little mix and match. I mostly created bright shades as I was wearing a neutral look that day.

A cool pinky red...

A warm peachy pink...


And a cool neon barbie pink...

I absolutely loved the versatility of these and the extent of colours one can come up with. 

There are no points for guessing that these are Sleek's version of a high-street OCC Lip Tars. In fact I would say these are way better in quality as they do not dry out the lips at all and have a slight glossy effect to them hence no one has to know that you're not wearing a traditional lipstick.

Plus for £4.99 these are a steal compared to its competitors out there. I have my eyes on two other shades now namely Minx and Port. 

These are up for release in August so keep your eyes peeled ladies.

I love the colours you mixed, they seem really similar to OCC lip tars which I'd also love to try! The idea of creating my own lip colours is really exciting! x

these are really nice! I recently got a chance to try them out at the new Westfield in stratford! They were letting people mix colours and take a little sample away! I made a little peachy pink mixture, something that would look nice with my nars orgasm blush. I totally forgot about the sample until I saw this and now I'm going to dig it out of my purse and try it on! xx
