REVIEW: Sleek Pout Paint

I absolutely love Sleek's lipsticks so when I saw their Pout Paint when I was out shopping I decided that I should give them some attention to see if they could knock my favourite longer-lasting, lip stains off their top spots.

Sadly, however, I just didn't get on too well with this product, mainly because of the way the product is dispensed (see above image). The product in the little tube has a tendency to separate so you have to squeeze and shake it before even attempting to use it. Then you have to be careful to only squeeze out a very small drop of product either onto your finger or onto a surface where you can then apply it from using a lip brush. The messiness of having to use a finger or lip brush made this very un-travel-friendly. I wouldn't ever try and reapply this after having a coffee or before a lecture as I would make a mess!

The product itself is highly, highly pigmented and, despite coming in a tiny tube, will really last a long time as you only need a tiny amount of the Pout Paint to cover all of your lips. It does last very well on the lips and feels like something  between a non-sticky gloss and a liquid-lipstick. It isn't, however, at all staining. The shade I have is Rosette (a very bright pink) which is a lovely bright lip colour, perfect for evenings out... if only for the applicator!

I think if you could get over the design of the applicator then this is something which could become a handbag staple. It doesn't take up room, is good value for money, durable plastic packaging etc. And the idea with the Pout Paints is to buy a couple of colours and then you can customize lip colours by mixing the colours you have to create unique shades. It's a great idea, and they're very affordable so you could buy a couple without it being a huge splurge, but this process just isn't one you can use on the go! I have to say that I personally wouldn't recommend this product but I'm not saying that it isn't without its merits, I can see why people like it. 

You can purchase this for Sleek's Pout Paints for £4.99 online on Sleek's website or in Superdrug stores.

Have you tried Sleek's Pout Paints? How did you find them?



  1. I haven't tried these but I have tried the Sleek paint pots which are fab. I had a similar problem with my Jelly Pong Pong lip gloss (with the way it dispenses) it's not rocket scientist is it lol!
