When I received this in the December Glossybox I was really pleased as it's a good brand, and even though I haven't got all that many Sleek items, I'd love to try more of the range. I've already got two Sleek lippies in Barely There and Liqueur. I do find Barely There quite hard to wear, especially if my lips are a bit dry. It definitely packs more of a punch than the name would lead you to believe! Nonetheless it's a good peachy lipstick that works well with both subtle and more dramatic looks- it looked great paired with smokey eyes. I'm not fond of Liqueur. It doesn't do me any favours and is a bit blah! Now I have Coral Reef, and after testing it out, I really like it. It has a good creamy texture and is very pigmented. It is in the sheen formulation so it has a glossy finish and feels nicely moisturising. It's a lovely bright summery colour- I was worried that it would be too orange on me but it is a pinky coral which I find more flattering. It can be worn straight from the bullet for a more vibrant look or dabbed on and topped with gloss for a everyday look.A great lipstick that will be perfect for when Spring/Summer rolls around again. Though of course it will still get some loving now!
