Sleek Lip4 Palette in Tease


A review today of one of my favourite brands, Sleek. To be honest, I bought this ages ago (around the time I purchased the Pout Polish actually!) yet it ended up in the bottom of my make-up drawer and I forgot about it. After rummaging through it for things to go in my blog sale, I found it and  I'm so glad I did!

I feel like this has been found at the perfect time, I really like red-toned lips during the colder months and this lovely palette has 4.

Like always, the packaging from sleek is well, sleek. It comes in the usual lovely matte black plastic casing, with a decent sized a mirror and a fairly high quality mini lip brush. It's pretty compact, so would easily fit in your handbag for on-the-go applications.

These 4 shades are beautiful. Sleek are known for their highly pigmented products and this certainly is no different. They definitely pack a punch. These colours do stain the lips, so be warned! I find that Spotlight didn't stain as much as the other shades.

Show Off - glossy deep red
Spotlight - satin bright pink, almost coral in some lights
Paris - matte rose red, slightly blue-toned
Dita - glossy true red

(L-R: Show Off, Spotlight, Paris, Dita)

The glossy textured colours are very easy to apply and wear as they are not drying. They both stain quite heavily, I believe this is because of the amount of pigmentation packed into red shades. They are both true red.

Spotlight has a gorgeous satin finish which I love, I think this is my favourite shade. It can be drying, but nothing some balm won't fix. I've found so far that this shade doesn't stain as bad as the others.

Paris is a matte shade, which to be honest I haven't fully tried yet. I tend to steer clear of matte lip products as they are usually very drying, not a good look on my already dry lips! It's a gorgeous rose red shade, which I swear is slightly blue-toned. Not enough to not be wearable on most skin tones, which I think it could be, but it's definitely not as red/pink based as the others. 

Overall, I really like this palette and I'm hoping to start getting some use out of it! They are very bright and in-your-face type shades, but I personally prefer a bold lip! I'd love to try another palette, I've got my eye on Ballet. 

This palette retails at £8.99, buy here

  1. I love how "sleek" their packaging is haha. Those are some gorgeous shades as well, particularly Spotlight and Dita.

    1. Haha, they live up to their name definitely! Spotlight and Dita are my favourites I think :)

  2. I really prefer a bold lip too, these shades are so pretty! All so perfect for the upcoming season.

    1. Just what I was thinking! Especially Show Off, darker reds are a must!
