Sleek Makeup Lip 4 Palette Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Sleek Makeup Lip 4

Sleek Makeup Lip 4 Quad are a new lip palette containing four lip shades launching May 8th from Sleek Makeup. These quads come in six pigmented shade with a range of finishes including matte, gloss, and satin making it a snap to create the perfect vivid lip look in seconds.

It quite reminds me of having my own personal selection of Sleek Makeup Pout Paint in one single palette.

Take a look!

Sleek Makeup Lip 4 Palettes are for the loud and proud folks out there. If you love bold shades of lipstick and gloss these are for you. I find them comparable to products like Lip Tar or Sleek Makeup’s own Pout Paint in terms of pigment. They are FULL color lip shade quads so what you see is what you get on your mouth.

They come in six different shade selections:

  • Show Girl
  • Siren
  • Havana
  • Mardis Gras (LE)
  • Tease

Each quad features a single lip brush for applicator and a generously sized mirror. They are super travel friendly as the palette takes up to no room in your bag or make case but they still have a very generous amount of lip color inside each well plus a little goes a VERY long way.

Both quads I tried had two glossy, creamy textured shades which had a texture similar to a thick Lip Tar and two denser shades with a more satiny finish. The creamier shades definately have a thicker texture so you have to use a lighter hand during application. On me they migrate a fair bit and look chalky so a little gloss on top definitely makes them more wearable as that gloss acts to sheer the shades out. A little transparent lipliner doesn’t hurt either and helps to keep them in place.

The colors are a little too milky for my lips and have a cream finish. This typically results in a zombie look for me, I can’t pull off milky cream shades at all, they just look mod and deathly on me. I def do shimmers better! However, gloss definitely goes a long way at making them wearable for me.

I’m not really a huge fan of Lip Tar but I imagine if you are you’ll ADORE these quads. They are SUPER pigmented so you can get some very loud, outrageous looks from them. The wear time varies but I find they stick around for near four hours before showing some wear. They tend to go a little drier in that time so again I do recommend a little clear gloss for the best finish possible.

These launch May 8th at and are available for shipping to the US.

What do you think?

Love the vibrant shades?

I actually want to purchase Siren as it looks like a killer selection of oranges! Or maybe Tease which looks like a gorgeous selection of reds.
