Sleek Pout Paint Review : Shade 159 Port, 155 Lava and 157 Pin Up!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Thursday, 24th October 2013

Hello everyone!

First of all, I am a huge fan of Sleek Makeup. I wish they had a store in India or retailed here, but they deliver internationally so I am good 😛 I have their amazing iDivine eye shadow palette and their blushes and contour kit. I am never disappointed by Sleek for their high quality and affordable prices.

Their blush in “Rose Gold” is wonderful and a great dupe for Nars “Orgasm”. Read a detailed review HERE

I am reviewing the Sleek Pout Paints in the shades 159 Port, 155 Lava and 157 Pin Up.

May contain: Titanium dioxide. Suitable for vegetarians. Not suitable for vegans.

Price : $6.49 ( Approximately Rs. 400/- )

My Thoughts On The Product :

It comes in a tiny tube with a cap that screws shut. I like how the tube is transparent so it doesn’t get lost in my collection and the colors are easy to differentiate.

The product is dispensed by a small nozzle which is good because the Pout Paint is EXTREMELY pigmented. I have to be careful not to take too much product out as you only need the tiniest drop to coat the entire lips.

What is best about this product is that it is long wearing (more than 7 hours) without being drying. It gives a semi glossy finish upon application which turns to a matte finish after the gloss wears off. It is non sticky, spreads wonderfully well and does not settle into lines or become patchy even hours after application. But, it would definitely apply better if your lips are exfoliated and moisturized. Since the pigment is too strong, it might adhere to dry patches.

The only downside is that you will need a lip brush to apply it. It can be spread with fingertips but the product is so pigmented that you will want to define the lip contour with a brush. There are nude shades available too for those of you who do not like such bold lip colours.

I find this to be such a fun product. They can be mixed with each other to create your own personal shade. They also have a white one to lighten any other shade and a blue one to darken. They are considered to be the cheaper dupes of the famous OCC Lip Tars!

Sometimes the product can separate within the tube but that can easily be fixed by pressing and rolling the tube and mixing the products back into place.

The shade “Port” is a deeply pigmented Plumy Pink Shade. It can be worn heavily to create a beautiful fall/winter appropriate look and it can also be blotted down to create a pretty fuchsia stained lip.

The shade “Lava” is a bright neon orange shade. This can also be worn heavily to rock a neon orange pout or could be muted down to a light orange stain.

The shade “Pin Up” is a bright juicy red. Again, this can be worn heavily to achieve the old Hollywood glamorous look or sheered down to a more wearable everyday red.

The GOOD :

1. Amazingly pigmented

2. Long wearing

3. Non drying

4. Smooth consistency that is easy to spread

5. Transparent tube

6. Supremely staining

7. Inexpensive

8. You only need a small quantity to coat the entire lips so it will last very long

The NOT SO GOOD :

1. Need a lip brush for application otherwise it can get messy

2. May adhere to dry patches on chapped lips

OVERALL :

I am quite happy with the product. They are an amazing option for people who like to create their own colours and play with makeup. They can also work as a good long wearing base under lipsticks by blotting some of it away and applying lipstick on top.
