PGoing down to Boots is tempting but going down when they have their Christmas gifts is just lethal! They have amazing gifts at the moment, which is just exciting, one of them being a Sleek 'Say the Magic Word' Mini Matte Me collection.

I have actually never used Sleek before (I know... what) so I thought I would give it a go. You get 4 Mini Mattes for £5 which I think is a steal!! I am such a lover for Kylies lip kits but they are so expensive that I wanted to try new drugstore brands!!!
The collection comes with 4 mini mattes 'Birthday Suit', 'Velvet Slipper', 'Rioja Red' and 'Old Hollywood'. Anything mini I have to get my hands on!!

Starting with this as this has to be my favourite, it is a mixture of the shades 'Koko K' and 'Candy K' which is a complete win! They are my go-to, so this will be perfect to pop in my bag! The colour applies evenly and is a complete dupe to Kylie's! The colour is pigmented which I love, I paired this with 'Candy K' Liner and it just works perfectly!!

This is a not a colour a would normally go for, it is quite out my comfort zone, however, this colour will be perfect for this time of year, especially Halloween! As you can tell I found it harder to apply and it was quite patchy! I had to apply to layers to give me the right effect! I feel that this is a lot like Kourt K even though I  don't  actually  have it.  

As you know I just bought 'Mary Jo K' so I was nervous that it would be too similar, unlike 'birthday Suit' I don't wear red very often! However , this colour has a more orange undertone and is a lot lighter! I find Red lips are hard to apply so it didn't bother me that I had to work harder! I only had to apply one coat as the pigmentation was fab!

Again this was very patchy and  hard to apply, my lips had really just given up applying and reapplying the other shade. I don't have Leo but I am aware that this is very similar! I am not sure if I will wear it but I am pretty sure my sister will love it as it  quite dark. This shade is an Autumn/Winter Shade and would be perfect for Halloween! 

OveralL, I am very impressed with these mattes, the fact they are all so similar to Kylie's makes me wonder why I spend so much money on big brands!! It does take longer to dry  however it makes it a lot less drying on lips, which is a complete BONUS!

I honestly don't know how people do lip swatches on lots of products as my lips were hating me!
Has anyone tried these mattes? What are your favourite Sleek products?
Have a great week!

  29. The sleek matte me are really great but I fine there is such a different mixture between them some apply really well and others don't apply well at all, I love birthday suit though :) x

  30. I have heard so many good things about these Sleek lip products! I'd really like how the shade Old Hollywood works with your skin tone, it really suits you! Great to hear that they are comparable shades and quality to the Kylie lip kits - I am much more likely to purchase these than one of her products haha!
