Hello Wiseshe beauties,
It has been a while I didn’t review any lip product and while I was having this feeling I landed upon this gorgeous lip gloss from Sleek. Those who follow me on Instagram might have seen this look earlier. So, finally I am here with the detailed review of the the lip gloss from Sleek. Read on to see how it looks on me!
About Sleek Makeup Gloss Me Summer 2014-
The brand describes about these Gloss Me lip glosses as
- Maximum high shine glosses which ensure a dazzling pout throughout the day.
- Ultra Intense & long lasting shade that doesn’t budge at all
- Drenching lips in a full coat of lip gloss in a single application

These are basically semi opaque lip glosses and the color coverage depends mainly on the shade and the natural lip color of your pout.

Ingredients– PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM, HYDROGENATED POLYISOBUTENE, ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE, SILICA, CI 77891 (TITANIUM DIOXIDE ), CI 19140 (FOOD YELLOW 4 ), CI 45370:2 (D&C ORANGE NO.5 ), CI 45370:2 (D&C ORANGE NO.5 ), CI 15850:2 (D&C RED NO.6), PROPYLPARABEN, BHA
How to Apply-
- Ensure lips are prepped, removing all dead skin for a smooth application.
- Apply evenly to your top lip, then to your bottom.
- Part your lips, and gently blot with tissue removing any excess.
This lip gloss comes in a typical lip gloss packaging of a long slender glass tube with an applicator cap enclosed along. The packaging looks classy as other Sleek Products and one may feel the urge to buy these with just a look at them. The cap closes tightly and no chances of spilling.
Shade & Texture-
The shade Phoenix Rising is a deep berry shade of lip gloss with shimmers in it. The texture of the lip gloss is non- sticky which is by far the best thing as I don’t like sticky lip glosses. The shimmer is evident in the swatch but it is not like your lips will sparkle. They give a beautiful sheen to the lips without making the lips look overdone.
My Experience with Sleek Makeup Gloss Me Summer 2014 Phoenix Rising-
Coming to my experience with this lip gloss I must admit that the company claims stands true and this is really a great lip gloss launched by the brand.
The semi-opaque finish it gives to the lips is really alluring and hides any lip pigmentation very beautifully. The presence of light shimmer particles gives a glossy shine to the lips but that too toned down to a beautiful hint of sheen. Even during daytime, these shimmers don’t look odd on the face.
The non- sticky texture is the biggest yayy for me in this lip gloss as sticky lip glosses are certainly not my cup tea. I love the way it lingers on my pout and stays on for a good 3-4 hours with light meals. Well, although the brand claims are for the all day staying power but still it manages to decently stay for 3-4 hours in $7.49!! I think that itself is a good staying capacity at this price!
The shade is a deep berry with light shimmers and looks even more beautiful upon application. The shade is a total hit for all the complexions including dark skin tones!
Overall, I loved the lip gloss and it is a great option on a “No- lipstick” day when you want to just be a little casual, this lip gloss would be the perfect match for your lips then.
