Sleek MakeUp Matte Me Lip Cream Review!

Matte lipstick is so on trend right now, and as someone who is new to wearing lipstick everyday, I feel like trying out an extremely matte liquid lipstick was such a bold and crazy move! I love the look and I have seen so many bloggers and youtubers using them, I finally went out and found one from a brand that I love!

It’s the Matte Me Lip Cream by Sleek MakeUp and it is amazing!!!

I have always loved Sleek, I have used their eyebrow kit, I swear by their contour palette and own several of their shadow palettes plus a few other bits and bobs. I was pleased to see that they have expanded their range and are going further than most of the other high street brands that you can buy in Boots or Superdrug.

I have three different shades of the matte lip cream, Petal 435, Birthday Suit 436 and Shabby Chic 1037. For me I do choose more neutral pink and brown tones, but the range of colours they offer covers everything from deep reds to daring purples, so there really is something for every taste.

I love how easy these are to apply, I do use a lip liner but only because I am still so inexperienced with a matte liquid lipstick and if I try to do it without sometimes you can tell that I have overlined my lips. The consistency is a nice thick cream that glides on the lips nicely and dries to a smooth finish! It dries perfectly matte on the lips and lasts a hell of a long time! Another thing I love about this product is that it doesn’t dry too quickly, giving you plenty of time to perfect your pout, especially if you’re a beginner like me!

For some reason, out of the three of these I have, there are two different types of applicator. One is what you’d expect from a lip gloss or liquid lipstick, but for some reason the other two are a lot longer and flat on both sides – which took me a while to get used to!

After reading several reviews on these online from other bloggers, I was a little surprised at the colours once they were on. They were a little darker than I expected and Petal was not as pastel pink as some of the photos led me to believe. But I am still in love with them, Birthday Suit is my favourite for day to day wear, whilst I tend to wear Petal and Shabby Chic on the weekend or if I’m going out.

Overall, for £4.99 each I think these are a steal! I like that they last a long time, just make sure you apply two cotes in a morning and you shouldn’t need to constantly reapply throughout the day!

Have you tried these? What did you think? Any recommendations for other Matte Liquid Lipstick I should try?
