Lip VIP is a new range of lipsticks that Sleek have just launched. They claim to be semi-matte with moisturising power and impactful colour. Quite a claim from this drugstore rising star so I had to try it for myself.
I selected a few colours, but the first one I couldn't wait to try was Reserved. With Spring fast approaching what better colour to grace your lips than a gorgeous coral. And what a coral it is! If you're after an electric, flourescent pinky orange, then grab this lipstick. I only needed a couple of coats to get full coverage which was really impressive.
With a formula that includes Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Vitamin E, it's hard to pick faults with something that not only makes your lips feel good but actually does good, but not convinced Reserved is as semi-matte as Sleek claim. Perhaps it's the coconut oil, but there's definitely a glossy feel and look to the lipstick. But this is only a minor technicality and I cannot wait to swatch the rest of the range.
Colour Intensity: high
Finish: glossy feel with a sheen
Overall Rating: 3/5
