Sleek Matte Me in Shabby Chic (+ FOTN)

The Sleek Matte Me range was raved about by beauty vloggers last year. I was sold especially on the lighter shades because they look nice on the vloggers and the formula looked good. For example, the liquid lipsticks didn’t look tacky. So I bought two MLBB shades and one vampy. I’ll be reviewing today one of the MLBBs.

Shabby Chic is a slightly light mauve pink matte liquid lipstick. I bought this because of its name, but I ended up liking the color. πŸ™‚ The formula can last through a (junk food) meal.

To my disappoint though, it bleeds on the sides of my lower lip especially when I eat something oily and can be drying. It also becomes tacky when layered, so I apply by sections and as evenly as possible instead of one layer all over either upper or lower lips then apply another. When I need to retouch, I find it best to remove everything and apply anew.

Sleek Makeup came out with new shades including a lilac, which is one of my favorite lipstick colors. But my dismay at the formula has me hesitant. Ugh. I need to research on the new colors.

Excuse the pimple and tiny bumps because my face went through purging. ?

I wanted to use the Paul & Joe Creamy Powder Foundation, but, whoa, it is two shades lighter than my skin tone. πŸ˜† So I had to top it the Maybelline foundation. Anyway, I like Shabby Chic more than Birthday Suit, which seems to be everyone’s favorite nude shade from Sleek, because it’s pink nude and livens up my face. πŸ™‚

Sleek Matte Me

All Matte Me liquid lipsticks come in a plastic rectangular packaging that feels solid and has a black screw-cap. The transparent container makes it easy to identify the shade. Its wand applicator is thin, which is always great for my thin lips.

Sleek Makeup is available in SM and The Landmark department stores and Zalora for PhP450.
