We girls are crazy for liquid lipsticks that dry to matte texture. Am I right? I am always on the lookout for such lipsticks. I spotted this one in Superdrug, and found this the most unique shade to own. I have basic reds and nudes in mattes, but this purple, was a class apart. You can relate this to MAC Heroine, but this is a very wearable shade.
“Matte Me” is a matte finish liquid lipstick that glides on in one smooth application, with no need for a second coat.
My Experience with Sleek Makeup Fandango Purple Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream:
You all might have seen so many cheaper dupes for these “Matte Me” versions from Sleek Makeup, but nothing beats this one called “Fandango Purple.” The color is stunning, somehow the only purple I can dare to wear. The color has some blue-pink tones to it, but so wearable. It makes my teeth look whiter, my skin look pinker 😛 The color is a cool-toned purple no doubt and it will suit neutral to pink skin tones. The wand is not wobbly, which I would have liked; it feels stiff.
I love how it goes, it layers on one light coat, without feeling heavy or cakey at all. To my surprise, it feels like wearing no lipstick. Unfortunately like any other matte lipstick out there, this also shows the cracks in your lips; flaky lips beware!
You can layer it up if you like but this will not affect the patchiness after meals. After eating popcorn, I noticed the inner lips had no color. Happens to all liquid lipsticks? So, this will need to be worked upon after every meal.
The color lasts the whole day otherwise. It would show lip lines, but still shapes the lips so beautifully. While it lasts, it is worth it. Dry lips may not be as fond of this as I am, I love mattes, so no complaints.
Pros of Sleek Makeup Fandango Purple Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream:
- Never feels cakey or dry on me.
- One light coat and you are good to go.
- Gorgeous purple with blue and pink tones to it.
- Lasts all day if you don’t have meals 😛
Cons of Sleek Makeup Fandango Purple Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream:
- Gets patchy after meals.
- Inner lips will need a touch up often during the day.
- Dry and flaky lips be careful.
- The wand could have been flexible.
