Mauve Over, Peek-A-Boo, Pin Up, Cloud 9
A few days ago I received four of the newly released Pout Paints by Sleek, an apparent alternative to OCC Lip Tars. I can't comment as I've never tried the Lip Tars before. The colours of Pout Paint I received were Mauve Over, Peek-A-Boo, Cloud 9 and Pin Up- all pretty unwearable shades unless mixed. I would have preferred to have Minx or Milkshake to try as they look wearable from day to day on their own, skipping the mixing session. Peek-A-Boo is a bright blue used for warming your shades, and Cloud 9 is for cooling them; but I think I'll be running out of Cloud 9 the quickest as I prefer lighter shades.
As for the actual texture/longevity/look of these paints.. They are quite easy to mix and dry to a lipstick finish on the lips which is great as I prefer lipsticks (unless you count Pout Polishes, love them). As for the staying power of these little tubes I find it really hard to get them off, so don't get them on your hand or any other possible area you may need to show. Sudocrem works decently at removing stains on the back of your hand, but I have been mixing them on a plate with a cotton bud. It's the easiest way to avoid mess! They stay just as long on your lips too, so are great for a night out or a shoot.
I really like the idea behind these and will be picking up Minx or Milkshake when I next drop by Superdrug. I don't think I will use them every day however, but they're a good thing to have in your collection. Thumbs up Sleek, you did good!
What do you think of the Pout Paints?
