Sleek 'Matte Me' Liquid Lipsticks | Drugstore Budget for High End Dupe.

Yo my little friends. 

Welcome back to another blog post at the end of another week. 

I don't actually think we have had a Summer this year, all it's done is rain. I mean I have a freaking candle on in my room beside me and a hot water bottle. Although I must admit I am actually feeling pretty hot right now. 

I am currently watching Tudors as I am running out of things to watch on Netflix. Jonathan Rhys Meyers though...

*Insert love heart* 

He is a beautiful creature. 

I really need to curb my makeup spending you know because I need to get through what I have, plus my savings are seriously draining because of the bills coming out. 

Right now, I am not loving life.

What I am currently loving though is Sleek. 

You can find them in Superdrug and now in Boots stores. They have so many wonderful pieces, I especially love their liners which can used both on the eyes and lips and come in some super cool shades. 

I have always walked past their counters and have been highly interested in their 'Matte Me' liquid lipstick range. Previously I haven't invested because I am not a fan of liquid lipsticks.

The reason being is that I over draw my top lip to equal out my bottom lip and if I am honest, I am sick of doing so. 

I am seriously considering getting my lips done. For me my mouth is my least favourite feature. 

I couldn't resist no more and I really wanted to get their shade 'Shabby Chic' but it was sold out everywhere by me. I had to actually travel around 80 miles to get this lipstick. 


Again, I will be honest, I didn't have high hopes for this product as I am really fussy when it comes to what formula I put on my lips. 

The packaging is pretty simple, it's in a see-through, oblong, glass like tube with matte lettering and matte screw on lid.

It is priced at £4.99 which is a complete steal as you get a lot of product and it doesn't look cheap at all. 

The colour 'Shabby Chic' is very similar to Kylie Cosmetics 'Posie K' which is a muted, opaque, and mauve shade.

I don't own Kylie's kits but I have seen a lot of people wearing this shade and for me 'Shabby Chic' is a complete dupe for a fraction of the price. 

The applicator is a flat doe-foot, which I am actually fond of, it makes it easy to line the lips and gives an even finish to the product on the lips also.

The consistency of the product is pretty thick but it doesn't apply that way, it applies so even and true to colour. 

It's super pigmented and you don't get any blotches when drying. 

Speaking of drying, it dries in quick time and dries really matte.

I am truly impressed with this product, it feels amazing when applying on the lips, it's so soft and velvety and is does what it says on the tin. 

I loved it that much I went out and bought their shade 'Birthday Suit'. This one again I feel is a dupe for Kylie Jenner's 'Candy K'.

This shade is more of a nude compared to 'Shabby Chic' with a more brown/pink undertone, not as mauve as the other.

I am so in love with these I want them all. I love Sleek as a brand and feel that their prices are super fair for the quality of their products. They are really well made and presented to a high standard. 

There's a lot of their range that I want but I will have to wait until some miracle happens and I get a job. Ha.

'Shabby Chic'
'Birthday Suit'

As said previously, photographing my mouth isn't one of my favourites because they are constantly dry and not in the best condition. Ha. 

The photo's above are with one coat, not bad I say. 

They are totally buildable but once a few layers are on, the matte feeling is quite apparent and it can feel a little dry. 

Typical of a matte product anyway. Nothing different.

All in all, you NEED to get these liquid lipsticks if you haven't already. They are freaking awesome!!!
