Sleek Lip Pouts= Photos + Swatches

Hi ladies,

Another week went by and another brilliant make-up discovery in the Ms Purple lab!
Yes, you've seen millions of posts on these!
I wanted to post about them because they are good.

Sleek Pout Paint in 159 Port




And Sleek Pout Paint in 156 Peachy Keen
For some reason it looks paler on these photos. It's probably 2 shades more on the peachy side.
It reminds me of Interlace Lip Tar by OCC.



And it looks a bit washed out with full flash. Not very sexy in my opinion.

This is how they come out of the tubes. It's quite thick but easy to work with. I wouldn't use the product straight from the tube. It doesn't come with an applicator but I think I get a better application when I use a lip brush. A bit of a pain for when you are on the go if I'm honest.


And a bit of an inclusive photo. You can see a bit better the tone of the lip product I guess.


I also got the white one (153 Cloud 9) for mixing the colours. I wanted the blue one to make them deeper but it was sold out. Maybe I'll get it some other day.

These are two colours that I created by adding a tiny bit of white to the swatches above. Magic!

I also tried it as a blush (see below). It worked too :)


OCC Lip Tars dupes?
I don't think so. The consistency (a bit thicker) and the finish (more on the satin side) are quite different to the OCCs.The durability is not as brilliant as they say. I estimate the Lip Pouts will last for a good 4-6 hour period with no eating, drinking or kissing. They do not set (as opposed to OCCs Lip Tars) but I still think they are nice products and quite innovative in the UK market.

I will definitely look into getting more when the hype goes down. At the moment they are sold out everywhere. I heard that for some the products dried in few days. I did not experience that at all so far. 

Would I recommend them? Totally! They are fun, innovative and quite inexpensive at around £4.

Hope this is useful.

You can see posts and swatches on OCC Lip Tars in Interlace here and in Beta here.

    Port looks so good on you, definitely not one for the faint hearted. And I'm so glad you did a comparison with OCCs because I had always been wondering if they're dupes. Now I need to find a store that will ship to Australia and I can add some of these babies to my cart :-)

    @Makeup and Macaroons: Thanks! Doesn't Sleek ship internationally? I you really want them I can custom purchase some for you. I know what it feels when you can get some products in your country. X
