My Experience with Sleek MakeUp Matte Me Ultra Smooth Lip Cream – Velvet Slippers:
I am pretty obsessed with liquid lipsticks nowadays, so whenever I spot such beauty I quickly grab them, one such purchase is the Sleek Matte Me lip cream. Though it a drugstore brand, it looks very sophisticated and I was drawn to this beauty in the first sight. This is my first purchase from this brand and I simply love this lip cream. I chose the shade Velvet slippers, which is a deep dusty plum with a mauve undertone, it is a gorgeous color.
The packaging of this lipstick is gorgeous. It comes in a matte square white tube and black lid, it is simple yet classy packaging. These are ultra smooth lip creams with a liquid consistency and dries down to a completely velvet matte finish. Since the consistency is not too thick, it is very easy to apply. They dry down pretty fast so, we need to be quick in applying the lipstick. The doe foot applicator is very smooth and comfortable.
The lipstick is a little bit drying, but it is manageable. It is very long lasting, it lasted for more than 8 hours without feathering. It survived even greasy meals and it didn’t transfer at all. These do not settle on fine lines and do not exaggerate them.
These are some of the new colors in this range, and I think sleek has revamped the formula and applicator of this line. Previously, the applicator had a untapered end and the formula of those lipsticks was not so good. But now, all these has been corrected and it has become an awesome product. The removal of this lipstick is also very easy, a makeup removing wipe is sufficient to remove it from the lips.
I do feel that this shade is close to “Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in the shade Trophy wife”; it is my personal opinion. Finally I really like this lipstick, it is a gorgeous color and pretty long lasting. I have really fallen in love with this shade.
