Sleek True Colour Lipsticks (Pink Freeze and Russian Roulette) Review


So I finally got my hands on the most coveted Sleek True Colour Lipsticks!  And thankfully, the shades I got are both okay for my skintone --- Russian Roulette and Pink Freeze!

Now, don't you think Pink Freeze looks like MAC's Pink Nouveau while Russian Roulette looks like a dead ringer for MAC's Russian Red?  Close dupe!

 What do you think?

Pros
  • Packaging.
  • Shade is clear even on packaging.  You get the color pictured and shade names.
  • Shade names also printed clearly at the bottom of the lipstick.
  • Comes in wide array of shades to choose from.
  • Not tested on animals.
  • Comes in 2 finishes --- sheen and matte.
  • Pigmentation is very good.  Even for users with pigmented lips, I get an opaque color in just 2 swipes.
  • Does not budge.
  • Texture of the matte lipsticks are completely matte and stays for more than half a day!
Cons
  •  Can be dry and dragging on lips especially if you have extremely dry lips like I do!
  • May settle into lip lines.

Overall
Pink Freeze and Russian Roulette are a must in every girl's lipstick KIT!  Both shades are highly pigmented with long-staying power.  Just like any matte lipsticks, both can be drying.

Tips
  • Re-application may be needed but always remember to either remove old lip color with makeup "wipes" or apply a good amount of lip balm to hydrate lips before reapplication.
  • Best used directly from tube.  Or for better definition, use a lip brush.
  • Top with your favorite gloss for a fuller-lips effect.
  • If lips turn really dry mid-day, apply a good amount of lip balm and let it sit for a couple of minutes before blotting off excess balm.
Will I repurchase?
BIG YES!

To whom do I recommend this to?
All matte lipstick wearers!  Non-matte lovers can still go for the "sheen" version but I prefer matte due to its wonderful pigmentation and hydrate my lips really well.

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Sleek Counters priced at Php425.00 (approx $9.50).

A vibrant, blue-based matte pink lipstick shade that would work best on fair to medium skin tone.  Darker complexions can still wear this but may need some adjustments on eye or face makeup.
