There’s something about a matte lipstick that screams elegance and sophistication, the texture of these VIP lipsticks ensure a bold finish but also keeps lips hydrated.
The semi-matte formula keeps lips hydrated all day without any discomfort or being over drying. The finish is the perfect compromise between super matte and the traditional glossy formula. The finish is super comfortable on the lips and the range includes some subtle everyday shades and then mega bold evening/weekend shades. What I love most about Sleek is the affordability of a brand and the fact they pack the lipsticks with generous amounts of vitamin E, Shea Butter and Coconut Oil to moisturise and protect the lips. It’s the perfect budget beauty brand and the new packaging of the VIP range is so dreamy and most certainly luxurious.
All of the Sleek MakeUP Lip VIP Shades in order from the photo swatches above;
Backstage* – A coral pink
Private Booth* – A classic nude
Flaunt It* – A punchy bright orange
Nightspot* – A chic red
Reserved* – A cool toned candy pink
Guest List* – A warm coral
I have all of the shades and lip swatches for each one but can’t stop wearing “Flaunt It” it’s definitely my favourite shade from the collection and boasts a stunning bright orange finish that’s perfect for the summer months. These make for the perfect intro into the matte trend with the affordable price tag and pretty shades. The lipstick formula glides over lips to deposit a hint of colour without dragging or drying out the skin. The combination of ingredients ensures your lips stay moist but still show off that stunning semi-matte finish. I don’t really like the “Reserved” as much as the others as I find it the hardest to pull off as it doesn’t really suit my skin tone and hair colour as much as the others in the range.
