I've seen a few of these beauties pop up in blogland already and had my eye on these three:
Over the last year I've been getting into lipstick a whole lot more and my lippy drawer is rapidly filling up! Sleek MakeUP recently relaunched their True Colour range adding to it a lot more luscious spring and summer colours in matte and sheen finishes.
I have to say I'd always overlooked the range before as the colours weren't too my liking, but some of the newer shades are gorgeous. I normally shy away from vibrant lipsticks as I've very thin lips, but these three work well on me:
The packaging is very slick, black and rubberized a bit like NARS, but it doesn't have a satisfying click that I like with my lipsticks, but it's a minor detail.
For a bargain brand, the formulation is fantastic - extremely highly pigmented and in turn moisturising, especially the sheen finishes. I also feel that I can get away without a lip liner with these. They are pretty long lasting - after eating and drinking there is still a pigmented residue left behind.

I adore Coral Reef and my mum says it makes me look like I have 'Hollywood lips'. Good enough for me and I'm loving the sheen finish which keeps my lips hydrated.
Papaya Punch is an extremely pretty coral too and very similar to Coral Reef but has a matte finish and for this reason I'd recommend CF instead as it goes on smoother. Apologies for the sloppy application of this one - I got a bit tired by the third swatch!
At the moment True Colour lipsticks are £6 for two in Superdrug, but normally they are £3.99 each - still an amazing bargain. Other pretty colours in the range I recommend are Stiletto, Peaches & Cream and Bare All.
