Sleek make up pout paints

Similar to OCC lip tars, these Sleek pout paints are seriously pigmented and longlasting.

There are 11 shades in the range and I was sent Pin up, Peachy keen, Peek-a-bloo and Cloud to try out.

When I first saw the blue and white shades, I did wonder who would use them. However it turns out they were designed to be mixed in with other shades, to create your own custom colour. Blue helps to warm up a shade, whilst white helps to add some cool tones.

Having played around with the colours, my favourite combination has to be a mixture of Pin up and Cloud. Together they give a gorgeous pinky red colour, which looks great as a statement lip on a night out.

A little bit goes a long way with these pout paints, and I usually apply them over some Carmex to keep my lips nice and hydrated.

During the day, I do find them too strong to wear by themselves, but they can also be mixed in with some lip balm or vaseline to create a sheer wash of colour.

Have you tried any of the new pout paints? What's your favourite colour combination?
