Semi Matte Lipsticks: Sleek MakeUP Vs Models Own

modelsownvssleek6.jpg

Since getting the semi-matte lipsticks from Models Own I wanted to do a comparison to the Sleek ones that were released early this year. I don’t have all of the colours from both ranges but I do have some and wanted to see what they were like side by side. I have compared everything I could think of to compare, though I have done actual reviews for each of the colours I have, you can find the Sleek ones here (the original colours) and here (The Whimsical Wonderland colours) and the Models Own ones from the Dare to Bare collection here.

At the moment the only Models Own colours I can find in this range are the Dare to Bare collection colours, though if they’re popular I would imagine that their range will increase in the future and I’m not sure how permanent the Dare to Bare collection is. Sleek currently have twelve in their permanent line alongside three in each of the two most recent collections.

Review: Sleek Makeup Sweet Cheeks Limited Edition Gel Blush

sweetcheeks1

Sleek recently released a Limited Edition Whimsical Wonderland Collection which had an eyeshadow palette, three Lip VIP lipsticks and three gel blushes. I have done reviews of the lipsticks and the eyeshadow palette so today it’s the turn of the last of the products; the Sweet Cheeks gel blush. I think that this is a new product type, I can’t see any other blush sticks on the Sleek website.

These cost £5.49 on the Superdrug site (currently in a two for £10) or £5.50 on the Sleek website and come in three different colours; Tomfoolery (purple/dark pink), Hullaballoo (pink) and Lickety Split (coral) so there’s a range of colours available. I chose the colour Tomfoolery as I didn’t know what the formula would be like. They are meant to be fairly sheer, although they do look rather dramatic in the twist up container they do become sheer and blend out really well.

Review: Sleek Makeup Whimsical Wonderland Limited Edition Lip VIP Lipsticks

whimsicalwonderlandlipvips1

Recently Sleek released their limited edition Whimsical Wonderland collection which included an eyeshadow palette, three Lip VIP semi-matte lipsticks and three gel blushes. I did a post on the All the Fun of the Fair eyeshadow palette if you want to see that and will be doing one on the gel blush I bought as well on Friday so I’ll add the link here then.

I bought all three of the Lip VIPs as I liked the formula of the permanent line colours and these just looked so bright and I do have a bit of a weakness for purple lipsticks even if I rarely wear them. The three shades are Big Shot (light purple), Fancy Pants (coral) and Hot Tottie (bright pink) and they’re all very different to any of the colours in the permanent range. These cost £5.49 each and can be found on the Superdrug and Sleek Makeup websites, though they’re in a two for £10 offer at the moment in Superdrug along with some other Sleek things so it’s worth getting them from there if the offer’s still on when you look.

Review: Sleek Makeup All the Fun of the Fair i-Divine Palette

allthefunofthefair1

Sleek recently released a collection for summer called the Whimsical Wonderland collection which is limited edition. I think it was released at the beginning of June some time here in the UK and includes an eyeshadow palette, three Lip VIP semi-matte lipsticks and three gel blushes. I got the three Lip VIPs (find my post here), the palette and one of the gel blushes (that post is here) and this post is a review of the palette, the others will be up next week if you want to check back and read them.

The palette itself is called All the Fun of the Fair and is a mix of matte and shimmers in pastel colours which gives a great range of light, summery shades to choose from. This twelve shade mineral eyeshadow palette is split fifty fifty with six mattes and six shimmers. It costs £8.99 and, at the moment, is in an offer of two for £10 on the Superdrug website. At the moment I can only find it on the Superdrug site or the Sleek Makeup website though I think it will probably be available in Boots as I can’t see anything calling it exclusive to those two.
