pre-release review: sleek pout paints

On the 3rd of August Sleek will be launching their brand new pout paints available in 11 different shades at £4.99 each from Superdrug stores or the Sleek website. Basically the concept is that you can have a play with them and mix different ones together to create unique shades. It's a great idea if you fancy getting creative but make sure you have some empty travel pots (you can get them from Mac or Boots) to keep any shades that you invent in and you can use them again that way. If you can't be bothered to faff about with all that though there are some readily wearable shades in the range that you can apply straight off. The blue shade (Peek-a-Bloo) in the range is to use to warm up colours and the white (Cloud 9) will cool them down, pretty simple.

Mauve Over, Pin Up, Peek-a-Bloo, Cloud 9, Peachy Keen

I had a go at mixing Pin Up with Cloud 9 and it made a really nice bright pink/red, pretty good for a first go! If I decide to have another go at mixing the other colours I will put another post up on the shades I came out with.

Pin Up

As you can see they have a slight gloss finish but don't feel sticky on the lips, just be careful when you are applying the colour as quite literally a tiny amount goes a long way.


  1. I'm so keen to try these! I love my OCC lip tars so a cheaper alternative would be very welcome indeed.

    Thanks for the review and swatches :)

  2. Oh wow these look really good! Can't wait to try them out!

    Love J.

  3. These are gorgeous, I love the red one! xx
    Sirens and Bells

  4. The mixed one is absolutely amazing! it´s like the perfect lippie shade x

  5. Wow I really can't wait to try these!

  6. is it wrong that i'm thorougly excited to get my hands on these?
    i'll admit i have previously mixed up two lipsticks to achieve the perfect colour [how all my friends laughed] so to have something meant for that purpose is awesome!

    if i'd have had these though, i'd have been so tempted to wear the blue one on its own for laughs :)

  7. Ooh wow, that's such a fun idea - have a feeling I'll be investing in a good few of these when they're released!

  8. I can't wait to try these!!!!

  9. i think i might try them out they look pretty good


  10. I will have to invest in some of these.
