Sleek MakeUP Matte Me Lip Creams

Isn't it amazing seeing a brand bring out something totally different, not hyped up around this time of the year namely the glorified Summer. Instead of pushing some lip butters or crayons our way, Sleek MakeUp as usual decides to be bold and presents us with a Matte Lip Stain that actually is sported by the gorgeous Rihanna a gazillion times in numerous shades. Others make-up brands please take notice will you? Celebrities don't wear lip butters you see so stop giving us more already. I now have every colour I can possibly need. Ever.

Coming back to these stunner's, 'Matte Me' is plainly gorgeous. It is definitely not for the faint hearted. But the shades are just so rock star like and the formulation so comfortable on the lips that it's making someone as chicken as me want to sport a full on neon pink lip outside.

There are six shades available in total and I have two to try out for myself namely Rioja Red and Brink Pink. Brink Pink is a full on neon pink. I can't put a finger on whether it's cool or warm toned as it seems like a good mix of both. It's a little less opaque than the red one hence if you have pigmented lips, your lip colour will peep through a tad bit. A dash of lip balm mixed with concealer prior to applying this baby will solve the issue. If you're looking for an attention seeking, fun shade for the Summer, it cannot get better than this. I have a feeling this will compliment cooler skin tones better.

Rioja Red is unexpectedly my favourite. It's a warm coral red with a hint of orange shot through it. It's somewhere in between the uber stylish and classic red category hence easy to pull off. I can see this being flattering on so many skintones. It particularly will look fab on olive skin tones in my opinion. This one's superbly opaque and one coat does it for me. MUST HAVE.

I LOVE the texture and consistency of these Lip Creams. They start off applying glossy and dry matte. Not so quickly that you don't have time to adjust coverage. Once dry, I love building it up for more coverage. It feels like I'm wearing nothing on the lips and most importantly, it does not dry out my cray cray flaky lips. 

Releasing on 28th June online and 28th August in stores, these will retail for £4.99.
