Just a short and sweet post to tell you my new lip love is Sleek Pout paint! Ive recently been wearing two shades; mauve over and milkshake. They come in a cute little tube with a coloured stripe that actually resembles the colour that goes onto your lips. A drop is all you need and the vibrant colour takes over your lips and at a purse friendly £4.99 ( I bought mine from superdrug but it is available online) I’m thinking about buying all the range, the next one on my hit list is a vibrant red called pin up.
Sleek pout paint
Well.. being a full time student is definitely taking up a lot of my time but not so much that I’ll be spending less time finding, wearing and loving cosmetics!
Over the years I’ve tried cheek ‘tints’ and ‘stains’ but the general consensus was that they were not that great. I hated the thin liquid form that they came in and there was very little room for error when applying as the moment it touched the skin it was dry and not moving.
After tints and stains I converted to cream blushers, I love the sheen that they give and the way they enhance the cheek bones, bonus that they can double up as a lippy!
So the reason for my rambling is that this product is the perfect combination of a tint and a cream blush. It’s texture is thicker than a cream yet not sticky like a blush, it easy to apply with your finger and can be easily blended to the contour of your cheek. The result is a soft glow of colour blended without any harsh lines.
I actually prefer to use this product as a base colour underneath a loose powder blush for a more intense evening look.
My only negative is that when wearing this product alone it does need to be reapplied regularly to maintain the look.
As you’ve probably noticed I love to use Youngblood cosmetics, my addiction began when Elements Medispa took the brand on in the clinic. It didn’t matter what product I was using or whose make-up i did, from bridal to camouflage everybody including me was impressed at both it’s coverage and longevity.
And without fail when it came to needing a new trusty red lippy the brand stepped up! The shade I chose was vixen which is a real true red, on application it is quite thick without being sticky and has a great matt finish. The lipstick leaves a stain on the lips meaning you can have a few Starbucks before having to reapply! It’s also great because a lip liner isn’t essential as it does not bleed into the lip line.
