Sleek Week: True Colour Lipsticks & GIVEAWAY!

Today’s post is going to be about the newly relaunched True Colour Lipsticks. There are 20 shades of these lipsticks and they are available in two finishes; sheen and matte. For me this is an important development in drugstore make up, offering a choice of finishes really puts Sleek at the top of it’s game; I prefer lipsticks with a matte finish and it’s rare to find these in the drugstore. These lipsticks are amazingly pigmented (much like everything else Sleek produce, actually) and apply like a dream, even the matte shades that are normally a nightmare. The sheen finish lipsticks just glide on and have a lovely finish, nice and shiny but still very pigmented. They feel moisturising on the lips and I assume this is because they are enriched with Vitamin E, even the normally drying matte shades.
True Colour Lipsticks retail for £4 and are available from the Sleek MakeUP website and Superdrug stores.

This is my favourite True Colour lipstick. I love corals and this stays put for ages!
I think that these lipsticks are definitely worth trying out, they’re affordable, great quality and there are lots of shades.

I won one as a prize and as I already own it I thought I’d give it away to one of you : )
