Sleek Bring 'Lip Tar' to the High Street!

Affordable cosmetic brand Sleek Makeup have done what bloggers all over the world have been hoping for for a long time... They've taken Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics' lead and released highly pigmented lipsticks in liquid form.


Comparable to the cult OCC 'Lip Tars', the Sleek Makeup 'Pout Paints' come in bold and bright colours and are designed to be mixed to create your own shade.


I only own one OCC Lip Tar myself so am no expert but from my experience, these products seem like a great dupe that is not only cheaper (they will retail for £4.99 compared to OCC's £8.99) but also more easily accessible than the OCC variant (available in Superdrug and online).


They also seem to be a little thicker than the OCC lip tars, making them easier to work with. The only problem is whether or not these products are really made for the high street? They are certainly fun to play with, but unless you're a makeup artist or complete makeup fanatic, I don't think the Pout Paints would be a permanent addition to many people's makeup bags...


What do you think? Would you buy a few of these and mix your own shade on a regular basis, or is that too much effort?

Sleek Makeup Pout Paints are available in 11 different shades and are currently '3 for 2'.

  9. these look pretty interesting! not sure if i'd buy it though as i'd have to buy 2 to achieve the colour i'd want. but maybe when there's a 3 for 2 offer hey. :p

  11. Nope, wouldn't bother. I tend to use Clinique Almost lipstick in black honey or Benefit's Ms Behavin. These suit my fair skin, and can be applied very sheer or builded. Easy to slap on.

    All on all, this looks to complicated,

  19. The very first shade you mixed is beautiful! Arghh I'm definitely going to be making a purchase, the sheer fun if just mixing them alone is worth the pennies!

  20. LOVE the peachy colored and red one!

  21. i think it would be a good idea to mix a nice colour into like a sample pot so you can use it again and again:)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Nice idea. I would like to experiment:) but you've got to remember the proportion of each mix.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm not sure I'd be ready to put the effort into them, but besides that I think they're a great idea, especially for starting out makeup artists, or even people trying to find their perfect lip shade to see what suits them best!

  24. ohhh i want one so bad...<3<3

  25. if you look on the website, they have awesome pinks :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think they're a great idea for when you're looking for that perfect shade but don't have it. A good investment then buying multiple shades that are so similar

    ReplyDelete
  27. As they're on 3 for 2, I'd probably invest in say the pink (or peach), red and white that way you still have wearable colours if you can't be bothered with mixing your own colours, or get bored of it once the novelty wears off. I do agree that they are more catered for the MUA market, but it would definitely be fun to play with making my own colours :)

    Much Love,

  31. I agree that not it would take to much effort to do on an everyday basis. As a beauty addict I would love them but Canada doesn't have Sleek :(
