Sleek MakeUp Pout Paints First Impressions
I can't even tell you how excited I was to get these! They were supposed to get to me earlier, but were held up at the post office for a while and I was so upset. It took so long that I assumed they must have been stuck in customs or something.The box finally arrived yesterday and the custom's department hadn't even touched it! Oh well, at least they're here now! :)
Sleek MakeUp Pout Paints in Cloud 9, Peek-A-Bloo, Pin Up, Peachy Keen and Mauve Over. $8.00 each, available from sleekmakeup.com
I really love the pointed tips, they keep everything neat and tidy!
Cloud 9 and Peek-A-Bloo are the mixer shades. Peek-A-Bloo is a "unique blue tone to add depth and warmth" and Cloud 9 is a "pure white to lighten the load"
This is about the amount you will need to use (slightly more if you have bigger lips, like I do)
Fresh swatches: Cloud 9, Peek-A-Bloo, Peachy Keen, Mauve Over, Pin Up
After about 20 minutes. You can see that they've still got that soft, semi matte texture and havne't dried out at all.
These do transfer a tiny bit, so just be careful who/where you kiss!
My first impressions of these are that they're gorgeous! One of the reasons I am so excited is that I have so many lip colors in mind that I haven't been able to find. These will help me easily create all the colors in my head :)
I know that a lot of people have compared these to the OCC lip tars, but I don't own any of those, so I can't say. From the swatches I have seen, the OCCs seem to be a little thicker. The Sleek MakeUP ones have a very soft texture and I would imagine that they would work really well as stains.
I didn't have time to take any proper lip swatches, but I'm taking them with me on vacation so I will post up some pictures this week.
OK, I'm off to the airport in 3 hours. I have a lovely guest post scheduled this evening, so you will get that while I am flying! I hope you enjoy it! :)
