Sleek Make Up Lipgloss | First Impressions

If you have read one of my previous posts you will know that I went to the Company Bloggers Style the High Street event and received a bloody amazing goodie bag and in it was this Sleek Make Up Gloss Me lipgloss

I received the shade Phoenix Rising, which is a gorgeously deep red with a whole bunch of glitter and shimmer thrown in.  

Man my hand looks so wrinkly!

I must admit when I saw this shade in the tube I thought it's very shimmery so it's going to be quite a sheer colour but as you can see is really is a deep red. If you have read any of my lip posts you will know that I am very much a neutral tone kinda gal. I don't like anything too dark as it can make me look at little old, I just don't like red shades on me. 

However I thought I would give this one the benefit of the doubt as I am such a massive fan of Sleek Make Up it's worth a try. 

It's actually really dark on my lips, but I will say I didn't completely hate it, it's just very different to what I'm used to. I only used a small amount and rubbed it in. I think I would probably like it more if I wore it to go out for a few drinks with the girls or something, it's a bit dark for an everyday lip for me. I did find that the wand was a little bigger than what I'm used to and personally I prefer a doe foot applicator but it does the job. 

One thing I did notice with this product is it did dry my lips out a little, I think my lips were already a little dry and this did not make it any better.

I actually really like the lip gloss, I just have to get myself around to wearing it more often. 

Have you tried any of the Sleek Makeup lipglosses?
