I've heard Sali Hughes raving about Sleek make up and I have my eye on one of their lipsticks (Fuchsia). Its only �4.99 but I'm trying to make sensible purchases these days instead of taking a gamble so -would you recommend their lippies? How well does the colour last? Are they drying at all?
Sleek are good at doing make up for darker skins, lots of pigment, good range of shades suitable. I have a plum lippy and a blusher. Good value for money, I would recommend but Im not really "into" make up and rarely wear any nowadays.
I've got a red one. It's a fantastic matt, pillar box red colour. Not drying at all and I'm very sensitive to getting chapped lips. I find the lasting power fairly good for such a strong colour but it does transfer. I have found that the old school method of a foundation base and gradually building up the colour with a lip brush and a tissue blot between coats helps improve this.
I haven't bought a lipstick 'bullet' but I've got two of the palettes (one red shades, one nude) They are a more a gloss texture than a solid lipstick but very nice, moisturising and lasting. I always find reds are dry, these are lovely
(The packaging is plain, looks more expensive than it is but a blighter to open. I have to put a coin into the fastening and twist)
