i like matte lips but...

I knew this lipgloss was going to be vom when I bought it but hey, You live and you learn. Or you live and you waste money in my case. Sleek Truly Mattely Deeply is a peptobismal blue toned milky pink lipstick. Part of this years PPQ x Sleek Makeup collection this is a super matte lipgloss with a chalky dry down. It enhances every single imperfection on your lips as well as just generally being a unflattering colour on my olive toned skin. It doesn't work for me and the formula is just oh-so wrong. It feels like I've coated my lips in soft chalk and I felt like I immediately had to wipe it off as my lips were suffocating. It does have a very 60's old fashioned matte lip vibe to it but I really cant see how it would be suitable to wear out. Maybe if I decided to dress up as Nicki Minaj it might just work, but for now… back to the depths of my lipstick collection!

  1. I literally have no idea who this colour would suit, it reminds me of the crap make up you got as a kid to play about with! I really liked the idea of these too, I might still give the red one a go. xo

  11. For some reason I still like the finish but now that you said it feels chalky, I'm not going to buy it. Great review! <3 xo

  12. Yuck, this sounds (and looks) horrible!! What an awful color (I really don't know if anyone could pull it off, truly) and a chalky lip product? Blech. Thanks for an honest review :)

  19. wow, i certainly haven't ever seen a matte lipgloss before (am i the only one who didn't realise they existed?) it's a shame that you didn't like it and whilst this post is warning us away from it, i can't help but be tempted by it? i'm not sure on the colour though and i do agree it is quite nicki minaj-y...
