Sleek Mystic (Review and Swatches)

Sleek is a drugstore brand with great quality. Until recently, it was only available online by us, but this month Müller started to sell Sleek products. Of course, the selection isn't as big as online but you can get some of their most popular products. I have to admit that I haven't tried a Sleek product that would disappoint me. Their eyeshadows palettes and blushes are my favourite. 

I checked their assortment in Müller but most of the products that interested me are already in my stash so I decided to test one of their matte True Colour lipsticks. The most interesting was Mystic, which I bought and now is one of the best lipsticks I ever tried. 

Th lipstick comes in a classic Sleek matte black packaging with the brand name printed on the lid. It was packed in a cardboard packaging that was sealed with a tape, which is a huge plus for me (that way you can avoid buying used products, which often happens with brands that don't have sealed products and despite the fact that they usually do have testers). It contains 3,5 g and I think I paid around 6 € for it. 

Mystic is a fuchsia matte shade. The formula is a bit drier but it doesn't emphasize imperfections on lips. It applies nicely, but the application looks better if it's applied with a brush. I definitely recommend using a lip balm underneath if you have dry lips. But despite the fact that it feels a bit dry on lips after application, I didn't have any problem with dry lips in hours I wore it; like if this dry feeling would disappear after some time. I was the most impressed by the duration time on my lips. I wore it for nine hours (I did add an extra layer after five hours because we were taking some picture) and it looked great. Of course, it did wear off a bit but it looked more intensive as if it would leave only a stain. It does transfer on a glass when you drink or on service when you eat, but despite that it doesn't disappear from the lips or from the inner part of the lips. I even ate a sandwich with it and it stayed on.

I'm highly impressed by Sleek Mystic lipstick so I give it a huge thumbs up. From a fancy matte packaging that has a good quality to a beautiful formula with amazing longevity on lips offers me everything I want. I love it and I have a feeling I'll add few more matte shades from Sleek in my collection.

FOTD: Neon Love

I know, summer is almost over, everybody is already doing autumn posts, but you'll have to excuse me that I post this summery look this late, I just didn't manage to post it before. :) I gave a birth to a beautiful baby girl three weeks ago and I decided to take a short pause from blogging. Well, then other things occupied me when little lady was sleeping, so blogging just had to wait. I still didn't do any blogging schedule, so I have no idea how often will I blog but I'll try to write one or two posts a week at least. :)

Every summer I bring out my Sleek Acid palette to create a neon makeup look. On one hand they all look similar to me because I always use same colors, but on the other hand, I try not to repeat myself and create something different, use a different technique. I often conclude other colours as well, especially black, but this time, I decided to skip black and use only neon shades. That's why I also didn't do winged eyeliner, which is a staple in my makeup routine. 

I could say that cut crease is one of my favourite techniques to do. It makes eyes look bigger (at least so it seems to me). This time, I decided to do a neon gradient eyeliner and a neon gradient look above the lid and leave the lid white. Because it seemed to me that no other colours would go with this look, I did a gradient effect on lower lash line as well. I used only four colours: neon yellow, neon green, neon orange and neon pink. I finished the look with mascara and false lashes. Here you can see how bad I am at glueing false lashes. I usually cover my mistakes with winged eyeliner, but this time, I decided to skip it which I regretted quickly. 

Products I used:
- Bell HYPOAllergenic BB cream 01 Vanilla
- Bell HYPOAllergenic concealer 01
- Bourjois Silk Edition 01 Porcelain
- Essence Lights of Orient Oriental Beauty bronzer
- Essence Miss Floral Coral blush

- NYX HD eyeshadow base
