Sleek Makeup Gloss Me Review and Swatches

Sleek Makeup Gloss Me Review and Swatches: Hawaii Honey, Maria Maria, Phoenix Rising
Sleek Makeup Gloss Me Review and Swatches: Hawaii Honey, Maria Maria, Phoenix Rising

I reviewed  Sleek Makeup Matte Me Lip Cream in Fandango Purple about a month ago, today’s another Sleek Makeup feature! Due to the success of the Sleek Makeup Gloss Me range, they have launched another six shades for the collection on 2nd July 2014. The shades are Angel Falls, Hawaii Honey, Maria Maria, Thai Orchid, Forbidden City and Phoenix Rising. I’d say that they aimed two create two contrasting sets with the lighter shades inspired by the far west and the darker shades inspired by the far east. 🙂

In today’s post, I’m reviewing three Gloss Me products from the range: Haiwaii Honey, Maria Maria and Phoenix Rising. The formula and texture are very similar for all of the glosses, the only major difference is the shade. These Sleek lip glosses are filled with pigments, moisture and highlight. They’re absolutely fantastic for creating a flawless and colourful wetlook!

All of these products are scentless, which I suppose is a good thing because it stops me from “accidentally eating them!” 😛 The applicator is long and thin, which is good for a precise finish. These Gloss Me lip glosses aren’t overly sticky when applied, but I can definitely tell that “they’re there.” The lasting time is a couple of hours, which is what you expect from a lip gloss. However, even when the glossiness wears off, a slight tint of the shade still remains.

Sleek Makeup Gloss Me Hawaii Honey* 

Sleek Makeup Gloss Me Review and Swatches: Hawaii Honey

Hawaii Honey is a very natural looking shade with a slight tint of orange to it. This shade looks very sheen, so rather than changing the colour of my lips, it gave them lots of shine.

Sleek Makeup Gloss Me Maria Maria*

The shade Maria Maria looks beautiful on! The base colour is red, but it’s not overly bright. I’d say that the colour looks very smooth due to a hint of coral.

Sleek Makeup Gloss Me Phoenix Rising*

Phoenix Rising has a brown-ish basetone. Therefore, I think the colour is more suited for autumn than summer. I personally found it more difficult to get a flawless finish from this shade compared to the other two possibly because the colour is a lot darker.

What I like the most about these Sleek Makeup Gloss Me lip glosses is the combination of pigment and shine. They’re also highly affordable at £4.99 each!

My favourite one from these three is Maria Maria! Have you tried anything from the Sleek Makeup Gloss Me range? What’s your favourite shade?

Behind the scene background:
The first photo looks overly bright in the sun-light, but there’s not much I can do when the sun is out. 😉 Hence, I’ve done some swatches to show off the true colours of these products. I found this beautiful building, which looked like a nice holiday retreat in Kew Gardens and thought it’s a perfect fit for these Sleek Makeup Gloss Me lip glosses!

    The Hawaii Honey is my favourite, but they all have a lovely shine. At £5 you can't help but buy more than one shade as well! I'll definitely be looking at the website later. x

      Hawaii is a gorgeous natural colour! I'm really pleased with the shine too. I might end up buying more of these soon! 🙂 x

      I know, right! I didn't expect a lip gloss to have so much pigment! x
