I love it! // The 'Sleek' lippy that grew on me.


I love, LOVE lipstick.

I wasn't 100% sure on this 'Barely There' lipstick when I first bought it. I've always liked the idea of nude lippy but didn't want to look washed out with completely skin coloured lipsticks, I just can't pull it off like some others can. I tried this lipstick on and took it home as it was my idea of 'nude.' - But in natural light, I wasn't sure I liked the peachy undertones at all. 

This was my first experience of Sleek lipsticks too. I'd heard plenty about them but never tried them, but had to buy a couple when I saw the 2 for £6 offer on a while back. I haven't regretted it as the quality is definitely comparable to the Mac, YSL and Lancome lipsticks that I usually buy.

Sometimes when I'm in a rush I put on any old lipstick, and this was the one I grabbed last night, and decided to give it another chance - And loved it. Its subtle and I now love the light pinky peach colour and its perfect for every day use!

  1. Ah, this is such a nice, subtle nude.

    I've got their Peaches & Cream lippie and am in love with it. Might try this one too :-)

  2. Ooh that's such a gorgeous colour, it really suits you! I love nude lipsticks on other people but they really don't suit me at all, I think something more peachy like this would be perfect. Will definitely have to check out the Sleek counter next time I'm shopping!

  3. I can see that you CAN pull off the nude lipstick! :) As you said - perfect for everyday use. I love nude lipsticks - I have MAC Myth and MAC's Viva Glam 2 (by Lady Gaga) and they're great. I saw Sleek shelf in Superdrug today but never tried the products so didn't even bother to take a look. Now I'll certainly will! X

  6. I completely understand why you were weary of nude shades, being a pale skin tone myself, you don't want to look washed out.

    But saying that I think the colour really suits your skin tine. It gives an impact but in a subtle way.

  11. I think this makeup looks absolutely wonderful on you! Nude lips are so understated but make a beautiful, natural impact. The eye makeup you did goes perfectly, as well!

    Thanks ever so much for dropping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment :)
