Why you need to purchase Sleek's True Colour Matte Lippy

Sleek True Colour Matte Lipstick in Heartbreaker £4.99, Superdrug

My very first purchase from Sleek's collection is this. Possibly the most vibrant, summery lipstick I've ever owned. I've been looking for a replacement for my Barry M 152 Sunset - fave lipstick in the world; but every shop I walk into don't stock it anymore. Boo :( this was the closest colour to it and I love it.

  • The price genuinely gobsmacked me, £4.99 for a summer staple. Epic.
  • It's probably the most long lasting lipstick I've ever applied. This is a borderline 'con' for me, as no make up remover under the sun took the pink pigment away. Oh well, the colour's too pretty to rub off anyway.
  • The packaging is really stylish. I love the frosted black effect. And don't get me started on how amazing it is that it comes in a box. No more opening your brand new lipstick only to realise somebody has taken a chunk out of the bottom!
  • Whilst I totally LOVE matte lipstick, I know a lot of people out there can't stand chalky formulas. Be warned, this one's chalky. But they have such nice colours in the range that it's worth the pain. Just whack a bit of vaseline over the top for moisture.
What are your favourite budget lipsticks? I think I have a growing obsession...

Excuse the mid-sentence preview pic of me down the pub. I did do proper swatch shots but they were so embarrassing I couldn't stomach putting them online!
