Review: Sleek Pout Paints

Dec 27, 2011 12 comments
Hey everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday! I know I sure did, I ended up spending most of the day with my family then had dinner at my best friends house and had a blast! I don't know about you guys but my Makeup collection has significantly grown since Christmas. Makeup wise, I got a few products from Sleek, Coastal Scents, and NYX. This girl was very happy! :D

So the first thing I got to review for you is the Sleek Pout Paints. I wanted these because they are a cheaper version of OCC Lip Tars(So I've heard, I have never tried OCC so I can't compare) and because you can mix your own colors! I got four colors from them: Mauve Over(pink), Cloud 9(white), Peek-a-bloo and Lava(red/orange).
Description: "Pout paint is the new ultimate lip pigment that provides a blast of color in one purse sized tube! The intensely saturated formula provides outstanding color pay-off in just one tiny speck, and dries to a long lasting satiny finish. With a wide variety of Pout Paints to choose from you can mix up your very own unique shade using a combination of colors, or simply go for one stand out striking pop of color."
Shades: 11 Total
Price: $8.00

Everything in the description is true, the colors on their own are POW pigmented! All you need is a tiny dot to spread over both your lips, I did find they were a little glossy at first, but after a while the did loose some shine, which I like because you don't want an over glossed lip. It just doesn't look pretty, especially with bright or dark colors. They did feather out a bit so a lip liner is must in my opinion. 

But the thing that I love most about these is you can mix them! You can literally create your own colors and have an endless supply of lip colors. If you buy anyone of these, buy the white one(as strange as that sounds) because you can lighten up and change any of the other colors with just a small drop! Needless to say, I love these! I just wish they has more primary colors, that way you could mix the entire rainbow!(yellow please!!)

R-L: Cloud 9, Mauve Over, Lava, Peek-A-Bloo
Just look how gorgeous these colors are! My favorite is Mauve over & Lava, but Cloud 9 & Peek-A-Bloo are absolutely perfect for mixing new shades!
Speaking of mixing, I mixed a few of my own! Its really simple, just like painting, Just have a container to keep the color in, add a dollop of each shade you like(this is Mauve Over & Cloud 9) and mix! Be careful of some colors though because they will make brown(ICK!). Complementary colors create brown when mixed, so Red & Green, Blue & Orange, and Yellow & Purple. 
So this is one part Mauve over and two parts Cloud 9. I call it Bubble Gum POP! So gorgeous, it reminds me of Nikki Minaj.
This ended up looking just like my skin tone, its pretty just not for me xD This would look amazing on darker skin tones. This shade is one part Lava and two parts Cloud 9. I call it Peach Sorbet ;D
This one is my absolute favorite!! Just look at that gorgeous purple! I did not want to take this color off! It is equal parts Mauve Over and Peek-A-Bloo. I have a soft spot for purple lips ♥
This is the shade I decided to wear for the rest of the day, it is equal parts Mauve Over, Lava and Peek-A-Bloo. I really have no idea what to call it, its kind of a vampy burgundy, what do you think?

All in all I give this product 4.5 stars. I docked a little just because they don't have all of the Primary colors and you need a lip liner for pro-longed wear. If your asking me, I say BUY IT!! You wont regret it, I promise! It almost defeats the purpose of buying other lip colors! 

You can purchase these on the Sleek website

I strongly suggest you buy these if you like this post!

Also don't forget to check me out on Facebook & Twitter!

    I've always been interested in the OCC lip tars, but they seemed a bit pricy for me because I don't use lip products that much. These are very pretty and I might just get them, because it seems like fun to mix my own colors lol

    Ooohh pretty! That one that looks like your skintone is totally up my alley haha. It's a very mod color. And that last color you mixed up looks GORGEOUS on you! It's not my style lipcolor at all but I just love how it looks on you!! Can't wait to see what else you got for Christmas!

    SO COOL! My mind is like exploding with all the amazing looks you can do with these!!!!! My friend got a lip tar recently and doesn't know what to do with it so I'll be sending her this post as inspiration. Did you have to make up those colors yourself or do they come with color mixing recipes? If so, damn girl - you have an eye for this! I would literally pay for you to bottle that last color. SO PRETTY!

    I really love these, too, but couldn't agree with you more about the color range. No yellow and not even a black!? Also, when I ordered, they were out of white! But, as you demonstrated, you can still come up with some really amazing colors. I also recommend these. They also smell like candy...

    Wow these look awesome!

    I've just bought a whole bunch of lime crime lipsticks (no she didn't, my beautiful rocket, mint to be) but I LOVE the white from sleek! my Stargazer white lipstick doesn't compare!
