Sleek Baby Doll

Sleek Baby Doll Lipstick - £4.99 Superdrug | £4.49 Sleek
A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from Sleek makeup asking to fill in a survey in return for a discount code off their products. It took 5 minutes if that so I was more than happy to. Sleek are a brand exclusive to the UK (I believe) and sold in Superdrug stores. Their well known products are constantly sold out in my nearest stores so I tend to shop online if I've already swatched something.

With a discount code, I tend to have a little crazy moment inside me, call me a discount junkie but I buy anything. I decided since I have tons of bright pink or red lip products, I wanted something different in the form of nudes which is definitely out of my comfort zone. I chose Baby Doll which has a sheen finish. It's a very pale pink that reminds me of one of my best friends old habits, wearing solely foundation on the lips. Maybe I'm just used to seeing brights on my lips but this looks awful on me, half dead in fact. Being pretty pale means my whole face just looked ghost-like, not a good look trust me!

Other than the shade not suiting me, it was very patchy and didn't feel moisturising in the slightest which always puts me off products. I have this problem quite a lot too unfortunately. Only high end lip products seem to get on well with me except Revlon's and the new Rimmel Apocalips!

Quite a negative post overall, but I still like Sleek's Blushers and Pout Paint, I am actually wearing one in my previous post in Pinkini. If you're not careful though, you can look like you've just drank a lot of blackcurrant juice...

Have you tried Sleek Baby Doll? Does anyone else feel Sleek's True Colour Lipsticks aren't very moisturising?

    1. PS: have you tried using a balm on top or under this lippy?
      something like the sleek pout polish would really help moisturize this lipstick (i think)
