My Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream HaulMonday, October 31, 2016
Ugh. I'm sick. Again.
One of the hardest things about going through pregnancy with a toddler is that they bring all kinds of viruses. Just when you thought your immune system is strong enough, you're wrong. When I was pregnant with Henri, I never got a cold. But with this pregnancy, it seems every time Henri brings home a cold, I can't seem to escape it! Ugh! I'm now addicted to Berocca, and have face masks in stock.
That's the reason why I haven't blogged in 2 days. But I am feeling slightly better to sit long enough to write. And to make me feel better and cheery, I would like to tell you all about the recent Sleek Matte Me lippie haul I had. If you don't know already, I love Sleek's Matte Me in Rioja Red and I just got addicted to the formula so I went to the Sleek counter at Landmark (as soon as I heard that their Matte Me in Birthday Suit was in stock) and bought myself 3 more shades: Fired Up, Brink Pink, and Birthday Suit.

I don't think I even have to say anything more about Sleek's Matte Me Cream Lipsticks because they just speak for themselves. If you are looking to start a matte liquid lipstick collection, Sleek is a good brand to start because they only have 8 shades available (for now), so it doesn't get too confusing. Specially if you're easily confused like me when it comes to lipstick making decisions.
Fired Up is the kind of deep red I haven't seen in a while and that's one of the reasons why I had to get this shade. It's a deep kind of red that does not shout RED! when you wear it. It's sophisticated for night, but wearable during the day too. I know I say this about all red lipsticks I review, it's just that red is just so versatile! You'll see once you get addicted to red lippies too!

Dry and flaky lips are also emphasized with this shade. It's a little unforgiving.
Brink Pink was not what I was hoping it would be. It looked a lot different at the store than when I got home. I was actually looking for a pink lippie more like MAC's Girl About Town or LA Girl's Color Rich Lipstick in Baby Fuchsia. But as it turns out, it's quite neon.
And when I say neon, it's NEON.

Even though it's too neon for my taste, I still love wearing it with a nude eye and bronzed cheeks. It's so Paris Hilton.
Birthday Suit is something every girl must own. It actually changes with every skin tone and that's what I love about it. On me, it looks a little peachy-nude, on some others it goes a little bit darker on. And on some women it even looks a little bit mauve.
