My take on the ‘Coral Reef’:
This is my second lipstick from sleek true color lipstick range. Sleek True color lipsticks come in 2 finishes- sheen and matte. I have tried both my lipsticks in ‘sheen’ finish as they are creamy and non- drying. I had already reviewed Candy Cane from the same range.
Shade: Coral reef is a neon-ish true coral color. This color would suit fair to medium skin tones very well but if you are above NC 37 then the cool tones of this color may wash you out. The shade has high shine which may look odd on deeper skin tones.
The color may accentuate your minor face flaws too so you have to use it with a good base makeup for sure.
Texture: The color has a high sheen finish which eliminates the need of any extra gloss. It is highly pigmented so for daily use, you better use it as a matte stain. The lipstick is moisturizing for sure and works well for my dry lips. The shade doesn’t bleed or feather. It does transfer initially but the matte stain is not much transferrable.
Staying power: The lipstick stays on a decent 4 hours on me with light meals. It fades away evenly and doesn’t settle in fine lines.
Packaging: The lipstick comes housed in a matte oval black cover with a color indicator at the bottom. Keep it upside down if you have similar kind of lipsticks. The bullet resides firmly inside and shows no signs of melting or breakage.
- A true coral shade.
- Highly pigmented
- Glossy finish
- Decent staying power.
- Not tested on animals.
- Available online only so shipping charges added.
- The shade is a bit neon-ish that may not suit all skin tones.
Final word:Sleek Makeup Sheen lipsticks are available in a variety of shades that leaves you with a choice of pigmented moisturizing lip colors. Coral Reef is one such bright coral shade best suited for fair skin tones.
