DISCLAIMER: Unbiased review for your reference. I have smooth skin but I’m not spared from pores on my cheeks, redness around my nose and appearance of veins. Also, I have combination skin; I get oily on my t-zone area. For the lipstick I love wearing semi to matte formulation and with that, I have high tolerance with matte lipstick. Also, I always exfoliate my lips.Better check your skin types and preferences DO NOT put the blame if certain product doesn’t work the same.
Little blog post about the “Matte Me” Lacquers by Sleek.
So Sleek recently launched their products here in the Philippines. No it’s not new to me, I had a sleek eye shadow before which I got online and for whatever reason I just lost it haha. Those we’re the days that I don’t care about the brand whether it’s locally available or not. I don’t know. And now I regrettably asking myself why I have to let it go, I should have known the price worth’s then.
Anyways, I immediately passed by SM Makati beauty section a week after the launching date. So impulsive and excited to try out the much talk “Matte Me” lip crème. I decided to get the Birthday Suit and Fandango Purple but when I tested it out haha Birthday suit it’s not something I could wear. It washes me off and it seems like I am totally sick haha while Fandango Purple is vavavoom. Gosh I love it! I immediately asked the staff to get one but sad to say it got sold out…that was fast!
Then I waited for almost 3 weeks and yet no stocks still. So I ordered in Beautymnl before it get sold out online haha. I got it for P475.00 but originally it’s P450.00 then additional shipping fee of P50.00. Great! I got it next day right after I placed my order. Am I the only one who’s too excited? From then I’ve been wearing it all day and it’s been a week now proven and tested as they say.
