Sleek Pout Paints
Sleek are a UK drugstore brand, available in Superdrug and online here (they ship worldwide too!)
Their pout paints, comparable to OCC lip tars, are amazing. Highly blendable and very pigmented, they offer you the chance to create your perfect lip colour. They are best applied with a lip brush; you could dab on with your finger but these do leave a stain on your skin. (My arm was stained by Pin Up and Peek-a-Bloo and took a good scrub to get off). The lasting power is fantastic and they stay glossy for a good few hours. I personally prefer to blot to get a more matte appearance (nothing worse than getting my hair stuck to my lips every time the wind blows!)
These are priced at £4.99 each for 8ml and there are 11 shades in the range. There is a great variety of colours- white, vampy plum, blue, fire orange, to name a few; though they could do with getting a black to allow you to darken up your shades as well as a yellow so you could mix green and teal shades.
Each pout paint comes in a squeezable tube which is very hygienic. You can squeeze a small amount onto a mixing palette or dish and mix as required, ensuring no colour contamination with the product in the tube.
Overall, I love Sleek's Pout Paints- I think they are affordably priced and a very creative way to experiment with your lip colour.
