Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Barely There

Hello loves!
I think I bought so many lip colors last 2016. Most of them are either nudes or dark shades. Actually, there was a time that I tried to limit my lippie purchases because they are darn hard to finish and I feel bad that they'll just get too old and expire, but last year was different and I have no regrets. Haha!

Anyway, here's one of the lipsticks I bought...

Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Barely There

I bought it on sale for only Php 150.00.

What attracted me to it, besides the very cheap price, is that it's nude but with a hint of peach in it.

I also love the sleek packaging! It's smaller than the usual lipstick tubes but the texture is so classy with the mix of matte and glossy design.

Here's the product info from the box:

How To:
Step One:

  • Prep lips ensuring all dead skin is removed, leaving a smooth surface.
  • Step Two:
  • Apply to clean lips, building intense colour as you go.
  • Step Three:
  • Part your lips, and blot with a tissue, removing an excess from your lips.

  • It says it's a mix of matte and sheen. I get the pigments of a matte lipstick with a touch of sheen, and not that almost glossy-creamy finish. I really like it!

    Check out the swatch below:

    On my lips

    See the nude-peach thing I was telling about? It's such a lovely shade and it compliments my warm skin pretty good. It's a great everyday lipstick because of the shade and that it never made my lips appear chappy. 

    It can stay a while on the lips if you won't be eating or drinking much, but just like most neutral or light shades that I have, reapplication is needed after I have lunch and such.

    This is my second lipstick from Sleek (the other is Smoulder) and I love both lipsticks! I might buy again if I find a shade I like. :) 

    Do you like this shade? What are your favorite shades from Sleek?
