AUTUMN READY LIP SHADES, SLEEK MATTE ME FIRED UP, GLOSS ME PHOENIX RISING & MULBERRY LIPSTICK


SLEEK MAKEUP MULBERRY LIPSTICK

It is only a matter of time before the last remnants  of summer becomes a faint memory for most of us over here in London. While the cold chills awaits us it is best to start thinking about the autumnal lip shades to see you through the season. I have compiled a small selection of Sleek Makeup lip products that I feel would be great to compliment the dark colour palette of your autumn/winter wardrobe.

First up on my list is the Mulberry lipstick which is my favourite on my list with it's dark blackberry shade and sheen finish. It is the darkest offering of lipstick shade from Sleek Makeup and I found it to be incredibly pigmented although I felt I did have to apply a few swatches to get the desired colour intensity that you see in the image above. The lipstick feels smooth and creamy on  application and the finish is truly divine as you can see. I lined my lips with MAC's night moth lip liner before then applying the Mulberry lipstick on to my lips. As always I made sure to first apply my EOS lip balm to ensure my lips remained moisturised under the lipstick application.



SLEEK MAKEUP MATTE ME FIRED UP LIP CREAM

The next lip product featured on my list of autumnal ready lip shades from Sleek Makeup is the Matte me liquid lipstick, Fired Up. Which is a suitable crimson shade which is going to be ideal for those autumnal months. 

I'm a big fan of the Sleek's matte me lip creams, I've been hooked on birthday suit and shabby chic for the longest so it will be interesting to see if I get hooked on Fired Up during the cold months. The matte lip creams are long lasting liquid lipsticks that can see you through the day and won't leave your lips all cracked up and chapped at the end of the day. I chose to first line my lips with MAC's cherry lip liner before then applying the Fired Up lip cream which took about a minute or so to completely dry up and 'mattify' as pictured in the above image.

I do recommend applying a bit of coconut oil onto your cleansing wipe when wiping the lip cream off your lips. It's a great ingredient that makes the removal process easier and quicker.







SLEEK MAKEUP GLOSS ME PHOENIX RISING

The final lip product from Seek Makeup on my list of autumnal lip shades is the Gloss Me lip gloss in Phoenix Rising, another dark berry offering but this time round with a gloss finish. It is the darkest lip gloss from the current selection of shades available to shop over on SleekMakeup.com.

I have to say that I am not a keen lip gloss wearer as I much prefer the matte and satin/sheen finish but I wanted to include a suitable gloss product in my list to cater to  those lip gloss wearers out there. Much like the other lip products the Gloss Me lip gloss was easy to apply on to the lips but I did find myself having to apply a few applications to achieve the desired colour intensity you see in the image above. As with all my lip products, I choose to apply a lip liner on first and with the Phoenix Rising lip gloss I opted to wear MAC's vino lip liner to line my lips before then applying the gloss.
