Review: Sleek Lipstick 'Vamp'



Over the past year I have been trying to find a dark red lipstick in the perfect shade. I have always found ones that are a bit too dark or a bit too light or they've run out of the good shade but whatever happened I could never get one that I would be happy with. I stumbled upon this whilst perusing the shelves of superdrug. The perfect shade, which is 'vamp' and said that it gives a matte finish which is a look I always want with lipstick. It said that it is also gives moisture to avoid giving you dry lips which sounded very hopeful. At only £4.99 (I think) I had to buy it. Here is what it looks like when applied:

Once applied the lipstick looks fab, it's dark and it's matte and seems like a dream come true. After a few hours I took a look in the mirror and a lot of it had rubbed off and my lips were incredibly dry even if I applied lip balm before applying the lipstick. I think it would be fine if you reapplied it every hour or so and therefore it would be better if you wore it when you weren't having a busy day and had time to reapply it. I am quite disappointed, it seemed to promise everything I wanted and in the end it wasn't what I expected. This does mean that I am on the hunt for yet another dark lipstick that wont make my lips dry and flaky.

Have you tried any Sleek lipsticks? What did you think of them?

  1. the colour is amazing- it suits you so much! but a shame about how long it lasts- i have the problem with loads of lipsticks! xx

    1. Thanks Ellie! It is a shame, I was really looking forward to having the perfect lipstick! x

  2. Such a shame that it didn't live up to your expectations. I saw the picture of it on and I was 'omg need this' because the colour is perfect, but it sounds like the formula really lets it down :( I'm not sure what shades they have at the moment but I really like Topshop's lipsticks :) xoxo

  3. it's such a lovely colour - shame about the longevity though! x

  4. It really does look fab! Too bad it makes your lips dry. I've a similar shade from YSL and it does stay very very soft/moist for a long time (not sure if those were the best words, but you know what I mean :))

  5. This is such an awesome shade!! x

  6. Love the color, going to buy this one too
