My Experience With Sleek Makeup Lip Pencil-Ruby
I adore using Red and Plum lip liner pencils when it comes to well defined lips.I have stocked up tones of lip pencils and want even more. Anyhow, this lip pencil comes in Plastic, Plum-ish colored pencil like packaging. The whole necessary information has mentioned on its body. Sleek Makeup Ruby Lip Pencil is a ruby red with slightly hint of brown which is perfect for my dark lip colors. It’s a lovely shade and can be used with many deep lipsticks.The packaging is really nice and cute and easy to deal with.
I am a devotee of Sleek Makeup Products because I always found amazing quality in their products either they are eye shadow palettes, eyeliner or lipsticks, they have been just amazing like high end quality , but this time they proved me a bit wrong. I’m not saying that their quality is bad but not great this time.
These typical wooden pencil eye and lip defines from their range, just not worth the money. Although,The packaging is simple but attractive. The color of the packaging is similar to the shade, even the caps are in the same shade.
I have used this lip pencil two times and now I would say it has very poor pigmentation as compared to other lip pencils I have in my stash. The texture of this lip liner is quite drying and needs a lot of tugging and pulling. Multiple swipes require to get exact color of this lip pencil. This is not good for very dry lips and doesn’t even set after the application. I have used it after applying lip balm like always do before any lip product application. It doesn’t look good even on well prepared lips and gives flaky and capped looking lips kind of appearance 🙁 Although it can be remove easily.
This kind of lip pencils might be work for hot and humid days but if you are a creamy-matte lip definer lover like me than skip this . I just fall for the color otherwise it’s total waste of money. Huge disappointment!!
