In my eyes Sleek have come a long long way. I've gone from owning a couple of their eyeshadow palettes (a staple in my make-up collection for years) to rushing to the counters whenever I hear of a new release. They are so affordable and they offer something a little bit different from the rest of the high street brands.
I was very excited to try out their new Power Plump Lip crayons. These offer a strong colour while plumping your lips at the same time. I don't think this has been done before, I've tried lip plumping lip glosses but I just hate the sticky feeling of a gloss so having something that plumps in a crayon form sounded great to me!
The packaging is slim and Sleek (I see what they did there) and the coloured ends make it easy to see what colour you've picked up -as you'll be buying a couple, obviously!
There are 6 shades available which are all so wearable. I think there is a shade for everyone, ranging from nudes to striking reds. I have 3 of the more 'every day' shades to try out.
The 3 shades I have are-
- Power Pink - a soft everyday pink
- Notorious Nude - a 'my lips but better' nude
- Colossal Coral - a soft peach-coral
They are very soft but really pigmented too which can be rare for a formula that's so creamy. They're lighter to wear than a regular lipstick so I think they are perfect for this time of year.
Once you apply them your lips start to tingle, I quite like it but if you're not keen on that kind of thing then this may bother you, but it's the tingling that makes the lips plump. Now don't expect anything incredible, you're to suddenly going to be like Kylie Jenner but they do make your lips appear a bit fuller. This has been my recent insecurity - I go through phases! So these make me feel more confident and don't make me worry about my top lip disappearing when I smile (wahhh)
There is a slight menthol scent and the tingle fades after a while though the colour remains for a good 4 hours.
They're just £5.49 -an incredible price for such an innovate lip product - plus Superdrug currently have a 3 for 2 offer on all make-up brands.
