In all Christmas parties and gorge feasts, the scenario goes like this: You sit down, order food, have a lil' chat, clap your hands when the food arrives, eat in abandon because devil may care, it's Christmas, somebody decides to take a group photo, then you eat again, then somebody wants a selfie with you, then you go back to eating again and the cycle goes on and on. When you go through the photos, you realize that your lipstick is patchy (from all that eating) and it looks so nasty but alas, the photo opportunity has passed. I doubt you want to retouch every time somebody asks to have a photo with you!
What you need in these moments is a lipstick that would say "Na-ah!" to oil, liquid, sauce, and cream so you can sport a fabulous- looking lip all day long. I've found that kind of lipstick in Sleek Matte Me Matte Lip Cream.
SLEEK MATTE ME LIP CREAM IN PETAL IN DETAIL
Matte Me is one of Sleek's latest lip range and it promises zero drying and creasing. Sleek said it's as pigmented as their classic lipsticks, but stays on better. Updated Trends currently carries 6 shades.
Comes with a doe foot applicator.
More about this super duper long- lasting lipstick after the cut!
Petal is a cool- toned light pink shade with a velveteen texture. Consistency is like liquid silicone and it goes on a lil' streaky so here's the best way to achieve an even finish:
TIP: Apply one layer and allow to dry for a minute then apply another one for a better and more uniform coverage. Just be sure to even out the surface during application as it won't move when it finally sets onto the lips.
When it starts to set, the sheen slowly vanishes and then it finally settles into a semi- matte finish. Pigmentation is medium to heavy. It has this slight stickiness to it at first (as in my lips get stuck when I press them onto each other) and it stays that way for around 4 minutes then it becomes surprisingly smooth-could be a little irritating at times, but at least it goes away! Wouldn't have it any other way!
SLEEK MATTE ME LIP CREAM IN PETAL IN ACTION
Petal is such a pretty, universal semi-nude pink shade and I didn't expect that it would look good on me! The nice light pink shade just compliments my skin tone so well and doesn't wash me out, although it may make teeth appear a tad bit garish.
Staying power is INCREDIBLE. It's like an indelible ink or semi-permanent tattoo for my lips! Wore it once to a buffet dinner and 4 plates after, the product was still intact with very, very minor creasing-as in the lip product still looked good in photos! You would need a petroleum jelly or eye and lip makeup remover to erase it completely. It doesn't dry out my lips during wear, albeit I noticed that the dryness comes afterwards. My lips felt really dry a day after wearing the product and I had to treat it for a couple of days. :(
It's the lipstick that has the best staying power in my opinion, but it doesn't suit dry lips perfectly. Man, I love its lasting power so even if it's really drying on me, I still use it, albeit on special occasions only. If you have normal skin on the lips, you will get to enjoy this product thoroughly.
