Sleek Purchases

EDIT - 14 October 2011 - New post with lip swatches of the Sleek Pout Paint and Pout Polish

I thought I would write a quick post about the two Sleek products I bought the other week. These are my first Sleek purchases so I was looking forward to trying them after seeing Sleek on lots of other blogs.

Sleek Pout Polish in Peach Perfection and Pout Paint in Milkshake

I'd been looking to try one of the Pout Polishes for a while and since I normally go for pinks, I thought I'd be brave and go for a peach shade! This is a lovely colour. It gives a nice glossy sheen on the lips with a hint of colour. I would say this kind of nudes my lips out ever so slightly. I really like the effect it has. It also smells gorgeous, it's a vanilla based scent so most people will probably like this.

The Pout Paint is quite cool. I know the whole idea of them is to buy several of them and mix them up to create your own unique shades but I just settled for one to try out. I do quite like it. It's a bold colour which I haven't got the hang of applying properly yet. As it says on the packaging it's highly pigmented. I think next time I try this I may try and apply it a bit lighter, maybe so it looks more like a stain rather than full on lip colour. Sometimes I think bold shades don't suit me because I'm so pale. It could be that I'm not used to wearing them though! Whilst I had this on my lips I tried adding some of the Pout Polish over the top and I liked that look better as it toned down the colour a bit and added a bit of moisture. I wouldn't say the Pout Paint was drying but I definately prefer feeling a bit of gloss on my lips when I rub th
em together.

See below for some swatches of the two products plus the mixture I created.
