Sleek MakeUP Lip 4 Lipstick Palette – Review & swatches

Sleek MakeUP Lip 4 Lipstick Palette – Review & swatches

Saturday, June 15, 2013 Sara Hassan , 15 Comments

I was very thrilled to see these palettes as the first thing that pops in my mind when it comes to Sleek MakeUP is pigmentation. Whatever the product, there is never a compromise on color pay-off which is pretty much the same with this palette.

Lip 4 Lipstick Palette
Lip 4 is a colour rich lipstick quad with different formulations including matte, gloss and satin finishes to create a variety of looks. Designed to suit all skin colours and tones Handy travel size component with lip brush and mirror included.

Lip 4 Palette in Ballet
Just like slipping in to a pair of silky ballet slippers, Lip⁴ in Ballet is packed with satin soft pinks and creamy nude hues. Subtly sweet and ultra girly, Ballet will make you feel as elegant and graceful as a prima Ballerina! Choose from Tutu, Plié, Swan Lake and Pirouette in matte, satin and gloss finishes. 

Lip 4 Palette in Tease 
Put lips in the spotlight with Tease and bring out your inner glamour girl! With 4 racy reds in matte, satin and gloss, it’s time to let your lips steal the show! Choose from Show off, Spotlight, Paris and Dita.

My thoughts
Lip 4 palettes come in a sturdy casing with a mirror and brush inside. Though it’s easy to toss these in your bag and travel around with but if the climate’s too hot, some of the shades could melt badly. Also, the brush it comes with is kinda useless. I suggest using your own lip brush for application. I've got two palettes to share with you and I'm gonna review them individually.

Ballet
This palette has four nude shades: Tutu, Plié, Swan Lake and Pirouette. Tutu is a light peachy nude with a glossy finish. It’s more like a liquid lipstick sort of a thing. It doesn’t suit me though because it looks too pale and appears quite concealer-ish on me (for reference, I am NC30). Plié is a brownish pink nude with satin finish and provides full coverage; this shade flatters my skin tone nicely so I like it. Swan Lake is matte and for some reason feels powdery on my lips. The formula is a bit dry and doesn’t cover my lips fully in a single swipe. Pirouette is a cool toned pink nude with satin finish. All shades in this palette emphasize lip lines and dry out my lips badly; I’m not impressed. It's a total miss for me!

My rating
1.5/5

Tease
Next up is Tease. Now this one I’m definitely impressed with! Show off is gorgeous blue-red – almost like a red rose – with glossy finish. It’s extremely pigmented and lasts for several hours on my lips. Spotlight is a bright pink coral with satin finish; it’s such a special color to have. Paris is a pink red that feels and applies like a tinted balm but dries to a matte finish and appears more like a tint on my lips. Dita is a classic red with glossy finish. Similar to Show off, it’s incredibly pigmented and lasts for good four hours. None of the shades highlight my lip lines. It would be better if you wear the glossy shades with lip liner since they do tend to bleed but nothing major. Overall, I am completely blown away by this palette; it’s amazing! I definitely see myself using this palette a lot especially since I love bold colors.
