Sleek True Colour Lipsticks and Flick It Eyeliner

Last month, Sleek introduced 2 new products to its makeup range: a colour-rich lipstick and a liquid eyeliner.

Sleek True Colour Lipsticks in Smoulder and Tangerine Scream

Made in Taiwan, True Colour Lipstick contains jojoba oil and Vitamin E to condition the lips. The range offers two finishes: matte and sheen.

I was able to try Smoulder and Tangerine Scream.

These swatches were made with only one stroke, their silky glide immediately evident. True to their sheen formula, they have a nice shine. Smoulder is a dirty plum, the kind of colour that I like; it looks pretty pigmented but doesn’t have the intensity and clarity of Tangerine Scream, whose name perfectly describes the orange lipstick.

Sleek Flick It Eyeliner Pen Style Liquid Liner in Purple Aura

Made in China, Flick It Eyeliner is a pen-style liquid liner that promises to be long-wearing, fast-drying and smudge- proof.

I swatched Purple Aura, a deep plum. It allows me to draw defined or thick lines easily enough, and has an intense matte finish. It dries fast and sets pretty well but I won’t say it’s completely smudge-proof.

Unfortunately, the pen seems to be faulty – not only can the entire body be easily pulled out from the tube, the felt-tip nib dried up quickly.

Strangely, although the tip had barely any ink left, its sides were soaked in it. Here are the lines I made with the dying pen after I’d inverted it for a night.

Sleek Eau La La Liner Nibs

Another Made-in-China Sleek product, the Eau La La Liner, also has problems: It breaks easily and in some cases, the entire lead is wont to fall out. I’m not sure if this has to do with the country of origin exactly but these two instances of product defect have made me wary.

Sleek Makeup True Colour Lipstick retails at £4.99/US$6.49, while Sleek Makeup Flick It Eyeliner is £5.99/US$7.49. Both can be found at Superdrug in the UK, as well as on the Sleek website which ships internationally.
