Sleek Lipstick Swatches - The HEARTBREAKER was BARELY THERE at the CORAL REEF

May 15, 2012

And I made a completely non-sensesical sentence with the Sleek Lipsticks I got from my Sleek Haul. As I was dying to haul their website I grabbed some lippes as well. I wanted Papaya Punch but it was OOS and so ended up with Coral Reef....ohh it just occurred to me if I had got that Papaya Punch I think I could have made a better heading (pun intended)

I only wanted Heartbreaker. Then I loved Papaya Punch and ended up with Coral Reef and then Barely there because there are already too many Orange and Pinks in my lipstick box and hardly any n*des.

What I felt about them –

Heartbreaker - The pics were taken when I was taking pictures for the Haul. For the lip swatch I applied Heartbreaker on my lips and left it there to fade. 1 hour ...2 hour...3 hour...4 hours gone but the lipstick faced very less and that do because I had ate something in between. The swatch pic was cliked after 4 hours of application with a meal in between. The actual colour is a bit more intense. Its very smooth and pigmented. Its matte but stays on without any dryness or flakiness. Super love it – well it is matte, its bright, its does not causes dryness, no flakes, and stays on and on..whats there to hate?

I could not swatch anything after that as I really need to check the stay and after that swatches were the once thing holding me. So I swatched Coral Reef and Barely There on my lips for pics but not Heartbreaker. So, using the old pic of Heartbreaker.

Coral Reef – Its a very tricky color for me. The first time I tried it, I felt I should give it to someone but then who will wear a bright color. Finally mastered the trick to apply to. You really need to use a very light hand as the colors are extremely pigmented.

Barely There – Not much happy with this. It turned out too pale for me. Interestingly its came around as a awesome blush. Yes I used it as a blush once and I am loving it.

Overall - I loved them. I will surely try something with the matte formula as I found it even better than Colorbar Velvet Mattes. For 6$ each, they are really nice. The only issue is shipping charges. Luckily I got it in half the shipping rate and on top of it the shipping remains same even after I added the 2 lipsticks so not extra charges for them as well!

BTW I made kheer (rice pudding) for boy's birthday today . Cannot go out because of some reason so gonna cook something special for dinner. 

Here is the kheer....
