Sleek make up matte me lip cream in bright pink and fandago purple
I suspect part of the reason I like these so much is because they go on like a lipgloss and unlike traditional lipsticks, the doe foot applicator makes it so much easier. Once dried though, the lip creams become a true matte. As the name suggests, Bright pink is bold and eyecatching, whereas Fandago purple is bit more muted and easier to wear. In fact I've been lightly dabbing it on, then quickly blending with my fingertips for a more subtle everyday look.
The great thing about mattes is that they last well on the lips. I usually apply once in the morning and it's enough to get me through to lunchtime. Whilst the Sleek lip creams aren't drying on the skin, they're not particulary moisturising either. For that reason I would still apply a layer or two of lip balm over the top (you can skip this step if you want a true matte).
Overall though, I think these a real bargain at £4.99 each. There are 7 colours to choose from and for a long lasting lip stain, you really can't go wrong!
