Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream Review

Hello again!

I was given two of the Sleek Matte Me's (£4.99) for Eid, and I've been loving wearing them ever since!

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream Review Birthday Suit and Fandango Purple

These lip creams are incredibly pigmented, and in one swipe you will easily be left with a smooth, even and opaque application. Moments after application, they dry to a matte finish and it does not budge for hours! I've found that they start to fade away after eating certain oily foods, but this doesn't bother me as I haven't found anything which can withstand all the junk I eat! It doesn't transfer (not even on to my niqab, wahoo!) which is a major plus for me.

I love the packaging too, it's sturdy and see-through so you can quickly pick up the colour you want to use! The applicator allows just enough product for your lips.

I'd recommend exfoliating and applying a lip balm before using these as some matte lip products do tend to be a bit on the dry side! I exfoliate my lips regularly so this isn't a problem for me, and I don't use lip balm with these as I prefer completely matte lips!

This product is available in 6 shades. I was given the shades "Birthday Suit" and "Fandango Purple", and I love both shades! They were actually both in My Wishlist post. "Birthday Suit" is a lovely nude colour with a pink undertone, I find that this colour is too light for me, so I pair it with a darker nude lipliner/lipstick underneath! "Fandango Purple" is such a gorgeous shade, I love wearing this by itself or over a dark red lipstick!

The Sleek Matte Me Lip Creams haven't had the best reviews on the internet, but I've really gotten into matte lips recently and I find these perfect to wear!

What is your favourite product for matte lips?

Thanks for reading, Thahira x

  2. These look gorgeous, enjoyed reading your review may need to get one to try, adore how matte they are x

    1. Thank you, and I'd definitely recommend trying it!

  3. I love the finish of them, they look almost velvety from your swatches! Love Fandango Purple, it's a really stand out shade. I don't really wear nudes so the pink is definately more up my street :) xx
