New: Sleek MakeUp True Colour Lipsticks

Sleek MakeUp have released new shades in their True Colour Lipstick range and I have some of the new shades in my possession. I quite like their dinky packaging but am not a fan of the rubbery material as it tends to get grubby looking very soon. Regardless, they are great value for money and with the level of pigmentation these offer, you cannot go wrong for £4.99 a pop.

The shades I have are 'Loved Up', 'Smother' and 'Tangerine Scream'.

Loved up is a gorgeous blue toned hot pink, my uber favourite pink in the family of pinks. It's quite the fashion statement if you want to pull it off with a subdued outfit or to perk up a boring little black dress. Ditch  reds this season and try hot pink for a fresher, younger look.

Smother on the other hand is quite a bold  yet wearable, rich blackened berry, oxblood-esque shade that works brilliantly either as a stain or straight from the bullet. It's the most wearable out of all these shades believe it or not and of course a perfect transition shade from Winter to Spring. It's almost addictive!

Coming on to the craziest shades of all times, Tangerine Scream. It's a full on, pure vibrant orange that hasn't come across the world 'muted' ever in its lifetime. It's unforgivingly loud and if you can pull this off with a biker jacket and printed leggings like a rock star, I envy you, yes you.

Overall, the lipsticks are fantastic in quality as well. They sit comfortably on the lips for hours due to their intense pigmentation and staying power. If you like full coverage lip sticks, want to try out the trends on the runway for less or simply want to refresh your lippy wardrobe for shades appropriate for Spring/Summer, definitely check these out.

That Tangerine Scream is intense! I doubt I could ever pull off a color like that but I have appreciation for it!

Love your comments on 'Tangerine Scream' girls! I personally cannot pull it off, even at home! Both the pinks are worth getting for sure :)

Loved up is definitely my favourite, although all three shades look fabulous on you!

I got Loved Up on a blog giveaway and I just love it. I can't resist a nice fuchsia, and the texture of the lipstick really is amazing for this price!
