Sleek True Colour and a Fake Cornetto

Last time Debenhams did one of their 10% off and free delivery offers I was sat at my laptop for ages deciding which lipstick to buy as my first step into the world of Mac cosmetics. With a Vegas Volt rolling around in the bottom of my online basket I was seconds away from clicking "buy now" when the sensible side of me was singing "spennnd lesss gooo to sleeeek" and to that side I listened.





I know every blogger and their dog, and maybe even their dogs' dog owns one of these lipsticks but I thought I'd do my own review of them anyway.
I bought Bare All and Pink Freeze from Superdrug on a 2 for £6 offer and I'm so happy with my choices. I'm also quite glad I decided to take the trip into town in order to see the colours in the flesh (?!) as Bare All looks very brown online and I probably wouldn't have looked twice at it. In fact it's a lovely shade that, against pale skin, is a super pretty orangey/peachey colour. Pink Freeze is a vibrant shade that I reckon would look nice against any skin tone, it can be worn in the day (I was actually complemented on it in my office full of olds) or applied heavier as more of a statement for a night on the razzle.



Going by the name I'm assuming Bare All is intended to be a nude, but do you see what I mean about the peachey goodness? They're both amazing though and last.so.long. I went a bit smacker happy before work the otherday with Pink Freeze and once in the car realised I might look a tad overdone and my lipstick might not match my headset - so I spent the jouney rubbing at it and it would not budge at all. Obvs this is a good thing as not everyone has to wear a hideous headset 8 hours a day.



Gah lip closeup, Im actually cringing a little I'm having to scroll down so I can type without being blinded by my mouth : /

So that's my take on Sleek True Colour, anyone else loving the same shades as me? Hope everyones Wednesday's going good, the highlight of mine has been a Morrisons own brand toffee cornetto that took me all of ten seconds to scoff and Made in Chelsea on catchup. Is it just me or does Spencer have the most ridiculously overctive face? He pulls such dramatic expressions when they're not needed and it's starting to make me angry - infact the boy in general makes me angry

  3. Your wallet must thank you for ordering Sleek instead of Mac! lol
    The colours look amazing, the finish must be close to Mac's satin- I like satins a lot!

  16. I like that these are matte finish. I think it's more stylish than glossy types + you can always put more lip gloss on the lips! ;) X
