#30in30 – Sleek Matte Me in Brink Pink


 This pink is seriously neon and I LOVE it! I’m a fan of liquid matte lipsticks such as this because the colour is so saturated it really gives that bright POP that I like.. unfortunately much as I love this it is hugely disappointing when it comes to wear time.


 The application and formula is great for the first minute but pretty quickly is feels uncomfortably dry on the lips and if they get wet AT ALL (I don’t even mean eating or drinking) this is GONE. Annoyingly it stays really well around the outsides so when you try to remove it it’s a tough one to get rid of which shows so much potential but it just doesn’t last where it counts.


The colour is amazing and I so with that it would stay put but for me it just wears away too quickly, I still put it on occasionally like today but usually have to wipe it off within an hour.. such a shame! If anyone knows of another brand that makes something like this (not necessarily matte) I am VERY interested!

Available online here for £4.99

    The Rimmel Apocolips do a similar neon shade called Stellar. It has great staying power and wears well and does not feel too dry. x

    Shame it doesn’t last but it really does look amazing on you. You have a great lip shape (awful weird to say but it’s true 😛 )

    I did a review of the Stila ‘Stay All Day liquid lipstick on my blog last week and it is AMAZING. I highly recommend. Matte, bright colour, great staying power and not dry <3

    Aw, it’s a real shame about the lasting 🙁 I usually do find that with. Sleek products you kind of haveto pick andchoose because some of them are fab but others are super disappointing. If you were looking forward alternative to this product, I love the Sleek matte lipstick in Papaya Punch. It’s not quite as neon and is slightly more of a coral colour, but it still has that POP effect xxx

    Wow! The matte effect is so convincing. Love the color too. It’s bold with a capital B.

    If you are having trouble with lasting power have you tried lipcote, I haven’t tried it. But I have heard that it is good for that sort of thing! Hope this helps 🙂 xxx
