REVIEW : Sleek True Color Lipstick in ‘Stiletto’
One of the greatest products that I got from the package Myla gave me was the Sleek True Color Lipstick. I’ve always been wanting to try Sleek, ever since the Chapman sisters used the brand in a few of their Youtube videos.
"I have to try Sleek!", I murmured to myself, while watching their ‘Bright Colour Blocking Make-up Look’. The eyeshadows look really pigmented—-leading me to a conclusion that their lipstick and blush are too!
Myla gave me the True Color Lipstick in Stiletto, which is matte as stated in the box. However, it contains Vitamin E which I know is a moisturizing property and gives a little bit of shine. The Sleek lipstick is matte, but when you take a picture with flash, it will reflect back just a little, especially when you put on a lot. Remember to remove the excess by pouting on a tissue. That will mattify it even more!
On the contrary, the packaging is really impressive. It’s relatively smaller than all of the other lipsticks I tried but you still get a lot of product because it is highly pigmented. The exterior is similar to rubber like the NARS blushes making me feel like it’s worth over a thousand bucks too. It is very compact, sturdy and lightweight, making it perfect to travel with.
Unlike the other matte lipsticks I’ve tried, it doesn’t feel dry upon application. And you won’t certainly feel like your lips are about to crack when you wear it, since it has Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil and Petrolatum.

Review : NYX Round Lipstick in ‘Spellbound’
NYX Cosmetics has been extremely popular with girls all over the world. But what made it really big was because of their round lipsticks which, according to reviews on numerous blog sites, are comparable with the MAC lipsticks.
If you’ve been a faithful follower of my blog, you probably already know that Myla of FabShopaholic gave me a bunch of NYX goodies a few days ago. She’s been generous enough to also include a lipliner, lipgloss, eyeshadow trios from NYX along with the round lipstick in Spellbound.
The lipstick comes in a black plastic packaging with a flat see-through bottom where you can have a preview of the shade. You take the cap off and when you twist it, it reveals a soft & creamy deep old rose color. One thing that you’d also notice when you undress the cap is the smell. I love how all of the NYX round lipsticks has this sweet candy-like fragance.
The only downside to creamy lipsticks is that it can melt easily when stored in direct sunlight so be sure that you keep this away from heat. What’s also good about this lipstick is that it is affordable! It can stay up for hours, depending on your application. The greatest techniques I can share with you in order to make it stay? Follow the six easy steps below.
