Sleek True Colour Lipstick Swatches Part 2!

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

If you think that drugstore lipsticks all have boring colour palettes that feature the same old baby pink over and over again, you need to check out Sleek's offering of lipstick colours. I really appreciate the fact that they strive to bring a greater array of colour options for all of us, especially my darker-skinned beauties. In Part 1 we looked at the first half of their colours, today we're finishing up the batch of swatches.

Without further ado, here are the swatches:

Sleek Lipstick Swatches

L-R: Cocoa 831, Majestic 836, Earth 829, Amethyst 825, Rose Petal 840

Cocoa 831 is a neutral brown. This is what I'm talking about when I said Sleek brings more colour options to the table. I can't imagine Revlon or L'Oreal making a colour like this, LOL!

Majestic is a deep purple. Sleek probably didn't make this with the fairer ladies in mind, but I kinda think this one would be pretty cool even on fairer ladies, if applied sheerly.

Earth 829 is another brown - that's three browns out of 10 colours that Sleek has. Pretty cool, huh? The browns aren't all the same though - Earth has a bit more pink is and is a bit lighter than Cocoa, while Blaze (swatched in the previous post), is a cooler-toned brown than either Cocoa or Earth, and has a hint of grey thrown in. Blaze is also darker than Earth, and slightly darker than Cocoa too.

Ameythst 825 is one of those colours I also think would be super cool on. Pinky-purple (with an emphasis on the purple here) with a blue flash. Cool.

Rose Petal is a warm medium rose with gold shimmer. This is probably the most conventional colour of the lot, and a very lovely colour too.

As I've said before, the finish on these is smooth and quite creamy, and pigmentation is pretty good - as you can see none of these are annoyingly sheer, and all can be layered to opacity, or sheered out for a more subtle look.
