Sleek True Colour Lipstick 'Cherry'

I love Sleek's Blushers and Eye shadow palettes but have never paid attention to their Lipsticks until I got one in December's Glossybox (which I feel is brilliant!) called Cherry . 

The shade is a gorgeous maroonish burgundy, a perfect pink-red if that makes any sense. I was more than glad to discover it has a glossy finish as my lips are extremely dry and flaky at this time of the year and a matte finish would only make them worse. 


As you can probably tell, it's a very rich and deep shade. Not very complex or unique but extremely lovable on first sight and universally flattering due to its neutral-blue undertones.

I did not expect it to be any good at all frankly as I have tried a few Sleek lipsticks in the past and have been disappointed but the texture, coverage and finish of this baby is second to none.

Sometimes it's so creamy that it can feather outside the lips easily hence a good lining of lips with a similar lip pencil is recommended. I like to apply this straight from the bullet although it's super duper pigmented.



I don't have such a shade in my vanity and have been lusting over similar shades from MAC recently so am glad I got this in my Glossybox and even if I run out, for £4.99, it's literally dirt cheap!

It's a mixture of MAC's Rebel and Darkside lippies I believe so if you are looking for dupes, get your hands on this.
