Over the past few months, just putting a fabulous lip colour has made me happy. I have been playing with all Sleek Matte Me Lip colours in my makeup kit. They are a brown girls dream with colours that make our skin-pop. This Makeup Monday is dedicated to take off the mask and putting some colour on your lips to smile more.
Makeup Monday: Sleek Matte Me
Matte Me is a matte finish liquid lipstick that glides on in one smooth application, with no need for a second coat. The light as air texture provides you with comfortable wear for hours, that does not cake, flake or dry out, ensuring long-lasting colour all day. You literally have to scrub it off. I had to use soap and water and a bamboo washcloth to scrub it off my lips.
I had a full lunch, and the lipstick was still on my lips. I could not believe it. The fantastic colours last all day. How to use it, first you have to ensure that your lips are prepped, removing all dead skin for a smooth application.
Then you can use a pencil to line the lips then apply evenly to your top lips, then to your bottom. Then part your lips, and gently blot with tissue removing any excess colour then puker up and kiss someone.
Why do I love Sleek
Sleek was founded in 1985, in the heart of East London, the centre of brown beauty. Sleek MakeUP was created for all skin tones. From the beginning, they have always been inclusive. They pride themselves on diversity and still have colours in their range for all pigments. After years of hustling, we quickly became a brand known for providing on-trend, high-quality products.
They are now sold worldwide, launching into new markets and online, reaching all corners! I enjoy wearing makeup brands that cater to my demographic brown skin beauties like me. Matte Me makes my lips pop and brings colours that make me want to dare to be different.
J'adore the Roasted Almond, Platindsed Plum, That 's So Fetch and Extra Sauce. Might also want to try Lip Laminate and Lip shot. If you had tried this, what is your favourite colour? Let us know below.
