Simply Lippy Challenge Day 128 | Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in Bittersweet

For today’s lipstick choice I wore a gorgeous deep rose liquid matte shade from Sleek called Bittersweet, which I really like.

I hadn’t tried the Sleek Matte Me range before today, and I have to say, it really reminded me of theBalm’s liquid matte lippies which I wore earlier on in the challenge, and absolutely loved, so that was definitely a good start.

The shade is a deep rose shade as I mentioned above, which has an almost orange undertone, and the pigment is also very good too. One layer gives a really bold pop of colour, and the drying time is good given that it has a liquid base.

I liked that the formula wasn’t too wet; it wasn’t creamy or hydrating either however, which meant that my lips did start to feel dry as the day went on and I found myself applying some balm over the lip colour to give some hydration. 

It’s not really ideal to have to do that, but I do have very dry lips so I don’t tend to let that effect my judgement of a product unless it’s very bad.

Given that these are a budget buy, I do think they are pretty good value for money. The pigment lasted all day, it didn’t flake or crack and I only needed to reapply once. And what’s more, I don’t think I would have had to reapply at all if I hadn’t put some balm on during the day so it definitely gets top marks for lasting power.
