Sleek True Colour Lipstick - Candy Cane + Mystic
When Lipstick Republic held a 20% off storewide sale, I knew it was time for some Sleek lippie. I was to buy one and one only - no exceptions! I ended up with two. You know how it goes.
After looking at oodles of swatches, Candy Cane kept standing out for all the right reasons. Vibrant colour + juicy shine. So much want. When she arrived, YOWZA! Even better than I imagined.
Candy Cane is an ultra-bright and inyourface coral, with a fresh 'n' glossy finish. Brightens up the face and is just plain amazing. Great formula, too. It glides on beautifully and feels nice and smooth on the lips.
I read a few reviews where people complained about it "moving around" and being "too slippery". Dunno what the deal is there. I've never had an issue.
Whatever the case, Candy Cane is one of my ultimate bright lippies. DO BUY.
Next, one from the matte side (Candy Cane is a 'sheen') - Mystic. This wasn't a difficult decision. Mystic is a scrumptious, vibrant magenta that looks absolutely delightful on the lips.
Sleek's matte formula is just as great as it's sheen formula, albeit for very different reasons. Mystic doesn't feel dry(ing) on the lips, nor does it drag when applied. Instead, it goes on smoothly and evenly, while still remaining perfectly matte. Good staying power, too.
Stoked to have added these to the family. HIGHLY RECOMMEND you check 'em out.
P.S. These retail for $7.95.
Thoughts? Do you own any Sleek True Colour Lipsticks?
