Simply Lippy Challenge Day 360 | Sleek Lip VIP Semi-Matte Lipstick in Shade 1002, Private Booth

Throughout the year, I’ve tried two lipsticks from Sleek’s Lip VIP collection, Backstage and Show Off, both of which I really liked. Their formula is very creamy, almost balm like but a lot richer, and as we were having a cosy movie day and not moving very far from the couch, it was the perfect choice.

One of the things I really love about these lipsticks, is the fact that they require little or no maintenance at all. The rich creamy texture makes them very easy to apply, and they leave your lips feeling soft and smooth from the minute you apply.

Initially from looking at the lipstick in the bullet, I thought it would be a lot paler than it actually is. I wanted something very neutral and this shade has the perfect balance for a relaxed makeup day. It is neutral while still having a lovely caramel tone and I loved the warmness of it too.

Sleek is definitely one of the better budget brands that I’ve tried this year, and I’ve always been very impressed with the pigment in their lippies. Though shades like this wouldn’t usually be my preference, I really loved the wearability of this today.

It’s not unlike Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk in tone, just not quite as pink, and it’s definitely a great option for a relaxed makeup day.

As the light wasn’t great today, I took images both with and without the flash to give you a true idea of what it looked like on. I don’t know about you, but to me, it was the perfect accompaniment for a cosy day on the couch!
