First off, the packaging! For their 'Caribbean Collection' Sleek have departed a little from their usual slick packaging. Although I can totally see where they're coming from with the tropical overlay's and bright colours (I'm ready for some decent weather any time now Ireland), it's all a little busy for my taste. But, as I've said before, you prolly shouldn't judge a book by it's cover - so packaging doesn't play into my impression of products too much.
As for the product itself, I snagged the shade 'Bonaire (967)' which is a striking orange colour. As Sleek claim that this is a 'tinted lip conditioner', the first thing that I wanted to do was play 'Pigmentation Police'. No winners for guessing that it's pigmentation is spot on!
For those of you who tend to shy away from a vivid orange, fear not! The colour is completely buildable. Use a small amount on the edge of your finger or a lip brush and blend the colour out - you'll be left with a perfectly glossy pout that has a slight orange shimmer. If your looking for a more vivid colour, layer up! I have a feeling this stuff is gonna be an AMAZING colour for summer!
The scent of this product is FAB - a kind of light vanilla scent that isn't crazy overpowering. I've heard a few people complain about the taste of it, but I can't say I've come across any overwhelmingly strong taste. This tinted balm is full of nourishment - almond oil, shea butter, vitamin E & SPF 15 - errythang you need to make your pout look slammin' for the summer!
The only disappointment I found with this lip conditioner is that it doesn't last too long. Although it has a creamy consistency that isn't overly sticky like other balms, I found that I needed to top it up every hour or so - not so good!
With a bank account friendly price point of £4.49 it's worth checking out if you're into tinted lip balms. But if you're just fine with sticking to a regular sheer balm, I'd quicker point you in the direction of Maybelline's Baby Lips!
Have any of you tried out Sleek's Pout Polish?
