Tried Tuesday: Sleek Pout Polish

tt-sleek-thI seem to be gathering a collection of lip balms (not that I am complaining, they’re handy to have). Most are clear. Some are scented various ways, but the one I am looking at today is tinted. A tinted lip conditioner it calls itself, but that’s just the same as tinted lip balm. It comes from Sleek MakeUP, and is their Pout Polish, in the shade Pink Cadillac.

Now, normally, when I think of a tinted lip balm, I think of something that may be vaguely a particular colour in the pot or tube, but which makes no difference to your lips when you apply it. And that’s a pity, because one that is actually TINTED could get a lot of love. Hopefully this pout polish lives up to expectations.

The first thing you see is that it is a pot. I am not really a fan of pots, but I can live with it. It’s understated, tells you exactly what it is, and that’s it. It’s also surprisingly large, with a hefty 10g of product, for just €5.50. I like that. Bang for your (euro)buck is always good, if the product inside is good too.

And here is the shiny goo that awaits. I say goo in that it is soft, but don’t worry, you’re not going to jab your finger right through it, unless you’re really trying to. It’s also pink. Not just pink, but screaming bright “you’re never going to have to guess what colour I am” PINK. Yes, it is safe to say this is tinted. Very tinted.

This Pout Polish is so tinted that you can certainly see it on your lips, while it has another plus to it. It is sheer enough, that you can apply it with your finger without worrying too much about the tint being visible around your lips too. It is cushioning, and soft, and makes my lips feel wonderful while wearing it.

In the couple of times I’ve worn this, I’ve become quite a fan. It is becoming one of the three things I reach for when I want a put together face without having to really put together a face, along with mascara and BB cream. It requires no effort to apply and instantly makes your lips look happier. I may be adding a couple more of the 13 available shades to my collection soon.

What do you think of tinted lip balms? Are there any shades of Pout Polish you recommend? Let me know in a comment!
