Today’s post is a review of these fab new Matte Me liquid cream lipsticks from Sleek Makeup. They are a “liquid lipstick” with a completely matte finish. I saw them in Boots and because I’m loving the trend for a more matte lip finish, I decided to pick up two of them.
The first one I got is this gorgeous nude shade in the colour Birthday Suit. Although it’s nude in colour, it doesn’t completely wipe out the colour of your lips. I really love the colour of it, it kind of reminds me of the Kylie Jenner look that every girl wants at the moment!
The second colour is called Fandango Purple and this is a real showstopper! I don’t tend to go towards purple toned lip colours myself but I have tried them on some of my makeup clients and they look amazing! I think I’m converted though, I LOVE this!
They both feel surprisingly comfortable on your lips, I thought they would look dry and feel tight and uncomfortable but no, once I applied and let the liquid dry on my lips, the colour came out really even and I didn’t feel like I had anything on. Now, obviously I had to prep my lips by exfoliating (I find doing that with an old toothbrush is best) and applying a lip balm. If your lips are chapped you wouldn’t get a great finish on these, as they are not meant to be moisturising. Also, they lasted so long! I went out for the day with my friend and I was eating, drinking and chatting for Ireland & the colour didn’t budge for ages! I did notice a bit of fading near the inside of my lips after a few hours but I just reapplied like I would have with any other lip product anyway.
Overall I can highly recommend these and will definiately be picking up more of them, and they are a much cheaper alternative to the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks which I also love but cost a bomb! These are a very budget friendly, €6.49 and are available in larger Boots stores.
Will you try these?
