How is it June already? Anyone else feel like this year is flying by!?
One of the things I really like about Spring/Summer is the brighter colours that start to pop up – in nature, in fashion, in beauty – and my lipstick collection gradually starts to, not only grow (oops), but become a bit brighter. Two new additions to this ever-growing collection – thanks lovely PR lady – are from Sleek.
Lip VIP Semi-Matte Lipstick in Backstage
This is definitely a shade that I would have chosen myself. I loved the feel of this because it was very creamy but not too thick and I was quite surprised at how long-lasting it was. I’d never tried any Sleek lip products before so I didn’t know what to expect, and I was pleasantly surprised.
Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream in Apricot Blooms
I have to be honest, this was possibly a bit too bright for me as orangey shades aren’t brilliant for my skin tone but I loved the formula. The danger with matte liquid lipsticks is that many of them are drying and the texture isn’t ideal, but that wasn’t a problem here. I have actually bought another colour which has more red tones and I’m pretty pleased with it. Also, metallic lip creams have just launched and I feel like I need them.
These shades have launched just in time for Summer festivals, parties and BBQs and help to add a bit of colour to your beauty collection!
