Promises to:
"A tinted lip conditioning balm formulated with natural oils such as Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Avocado Extract and Vitamin A, C and E to help condition the lips and lock in moisture. It also includes SPF15 to help protect the lips from sun exposure. Using a lip brush or fingers, apply a small amount to the upper and lower lips for a sheer wash of colour and gloss. 10g"
Ascorbyl Palmitate; Avocado Oil; Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2; Black Iron Oxide (CI 77499); Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane; Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter); Diisostearyl Malate; Ethylhexyl; Methoxycinnamate; Ethylhexyl Palmitate; Jojoba Oil; Methylparaben; Microcrystalline wax; Miristyl Lactate; Octocrylene; Polyisobutene; Propylparaben; Prunus Amgdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond Oil); Red 29 AL Lake (CI45410); Red 7 Ca Lake (CI 15850); Red Iron Oxide (CI 77491); Retinyl Palmitate; Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891); Tocopheryl Acetate; Triticum Vulgare (Wheat Germ Oil); Yellow Iron Oxide (CI 77492)
This is Sleek's $6.50 answer to MAC's $18 Tinted Lip Conditioner. Both are are potted balms that offer moisture, SPF15, and colour in one swipe. The Pout Paints are, however, far superior in pigmentation. In my test run, each application lasted at least 3 hours as long as I didn't eat. They also stained my lips so that fading wasn't as obvious.
The finish of the PPs are also much glossier and more akin to that of a lipgloss. I'm also happy that the finish is non-sticky! Texture wise it is creamy and moisturising.
The only thing that takes marks off is the packaging; potted balms are not the most convenient on-the-go and some would balk about the hygiene factor.


  1. i have electro peach and i'm LOVING it! so moisturizing and the finish is lovely <3.

  2. Mac's tinted lip conditioners are $18?! That is ridic. The Sleek ones look just as great for half the price :) Is Sleek like the UK's version of NYX? I wonder :p

  3. You look FABULOUS in all of them! I must check these out!

  4. you rocked all of the shades! pretty pretty :)

  5. all the shades looks gorgeous on you!! always love dupes especially if they work and cost even better.
    love electric peach<3

  6. They all look so pretty on your lips! So sweet of vicky to send them to you.

  7. they're all gorgeous shades. i espeically love the monte carlo and the pink Cadillac~!

    However M.A.C's pink fish looks stunning too :3

  8. omg, i love your swatches! You make me want to buy them!

  9. I always look at these in store and have never bought them but after seeing these swatches I might have to! ^-^

  10. They all look fab on youuu!!
    Yay for cheaper versions of the MAC's lip conditioner.
    I have a few that I won and I still haven't tried... XD


  11. Nice review =D I like reading about comparable (or even better) dupes! Just wish this was more easily accessible here.

  12. omgoodness electric peach is soooo nice >_< i want it soooo!

    re: sunflower beauty oil, we sell it at our store. you want? :D

  13. They look awesome! I'm surprised how cute the Mac color looks as well, I thought previously it was too bubblegum to be natural.

    Where can one purchase these?

  14. Don't you just adore sleek? Their prices are so good for the quality! Cadilac looks ah-mazing!! I can feel my money literally begging me to spend it on that!! :)xX

  15. Been hearing a lot about Sleek esp their eye shadow palettes....I'm very curious now indeed. The glosses look good, esp Pink Cadillac...

  16. Thanks for the review Christine. These are so affordable and they sound/look fantastic. I love all the swatches. Wah people say MAC is mid end but $18 for a lip tint sounds HE to me. XD

  17. Wow these look like a great buy. I really like all especially Electric Peach. Will keep in mind if I do a UK order!

  18. Your swatches look absolutely great, wish i had such nice formed lips.
    Got Electro Peach myself and love it!
