Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Exxxagerate

Because she’s awesome, my friend Janna picked this up for me during a trip to London.

It’s a dark, Gothic purple. Sleek describes it as a “dark matte mauve purple”.

The swatch looks to be a brighter purple, but is really is much darker and vampy on my lips.

It looks cool as a deep vamp purple, but it’s sadly not so flattering on my complexion. I  think this would be better for a person darker than I am.

I like the formula, but the color does little for my skin tone. I will be passing this on to a friend.

Have you ever tried a Sleek lipstick or a purple lipstick?

    I love purple lippies! They work well on my medium complexion.

  2. It’s too bad it didn’t work out for you. It’s a really pretty shade! I’ve yet to try anything from Sleek though.
