I just couldn't not have this lipstick in one of our Budget Find of the Week posts. If you like lip colours like MAC Rebel this is something for you! My latest budget find is: Sleek Makeup Lipstick in the beautiful shade Cherry.There are two finishes available in this range: sheen and matte and Cherry is a sheen one. The sheen finish is not too glossy but I do like to blot it down a little, this way it stays on that bit longer and looks a little more laid back. It is very a very comfortable lipstick to wear, it's not drying at all. It stays on quite well, I find I only need to pat a bit of colour on my lips straight from the bullet during the day and it lasts nicely. It is a gorgeous dark red colour with hints for berry and pink, perfect for autumn and winter. This formula is very strongly pigmented so application is quite quick and easy!
I love wearing lipstick like this during the day with just some nude-brown eyeshadow and a bit of mascara. I don't use a lip liner during the day and often blur the edges of the lipstick with my finger for a more casual finish. I think dark lips look absolutely amazing worn with a chunky sweater or big scarf (like Lisa Eldridge says "out of context"). This lip colour would naturally also be perfect for a more dramatic evening makeup.
The best part is that it is only an incredible €5.99 AND is now (FINALLY!!!!!!) available in Boots Ireland!!!!! According to my Twitter friends Sleek is available in Boots in the Liffey Valley Shopping Centre on the ground. I am so delighted that we finally have Sleek Makeup in Ireland! I'm sure Sleek will feature in many more articles on pinkelephantbloggin.com. For those of you outside Ireland you can order the lipstick directly from the Sleek website.
