Sleek Makeup Lip VIP Lipstick Swatches

Summer is coming... Are you looking for a few bright lipsticks to add to your collection?

Sleek Makeup Lip VIP lipsticks ($8.49) might be with worth trying! These extremely pigmented babies pack on colour with the first swipe.

Easy and streak-free. It actually feels pretty velvety on the lips.

Creamy semi-matte lipstick finish that doesn't dry out your lips. Infused with Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Coconut oil.


Personally, I'm not use to wearing bright colours like this which draw attention to my lips. But it was fun to play with them. If you asked me which colour would I work into my "every day" routine- it would definitely be Night Spot.

Tell me about your blog? -
My blog is a beauty blog aimed at WOC interested in affordable make-up as make-up for WOC in the UK is limited. I post product reviews and swatches as well as some videos here and there all aimed at WOC interested in beauty.

What are some tips to finding the perfect red or pink lip?
I think one of my tips for red lipstick is to opt for a blue based red (true vibrant red) as this type of red works well on all skin tones, for pink lipsticks my tip would be to always pair a pink lipstick with a purple/plum lip liner. This creates a flattering ombre effect.

Favourite High End Red -

Low End Red - Colourpop LAX Ultra Matte

High End Pink - OCC Anime Lip Tar

Low End Pink - Sleek Mystic Lipstick

Any advice on how to confidently sport a new lip colour?
My tip to sporting a new lip colour is to keep the rest of your make-up simple and make your new lip colour the statement.

SLEEK MAKEUP The Gold Standard i-Lust Eyeshadow Palette eye look

It's been months since I have actually done a makeup look. I had a challenge with Fashion Magazine's Beauty Panel to create a holiday party look. I knew the eyes was an important piece to set the mood.. so I decided to try out the Sleek The Gold Stand I-Lust eyeshadow palette ($11.49 USA).

Let me start off by saying this is a BEAUTY. A true gem from their Limited Edition 24 Karat Gold Collection. This is totally the palette to have in your possession, if you're trying to get noticed this season. The Glitz and glamour of this six shade palette comes with four silky shimmer powders and two pigmented cream formulas.

Sleek Makeup Crème to Powder Blush- Swatch

The best way to throw together a look is to add some blush! In school, we were taught that we only need two blushes in our makeup kit: Bubble gum pink and a rich orange. I've always gravitated to oranges. I love how warm it looks on dark/deep skin. 

When I was sent Sleek Makeup's crème to powder blush ($8.99 US), I knew that it 
would become a staple in my collection.
Sleek Makeup's Innovative Crème to Powder Blush offers intense colour with a dewy, satin finish. 
Blending is super easy with this blush. The soft blush starts out as a creme. 
Then dries to a nice light powdery texture. Perfect for any skin type: Oily, combination or normal.
I should also add that the nice sleek black packaging is perfect for your makeup kit or personal use.


Apply using a stippling brush or your fingers to the apples of your cheeks.
Then blend!
