very berry

Sleek Makeup lipstick in Cranberry, part of The Berry Collection*

This gift set was released over Christmas as a party season essential, containing an eye kohl, blusher and lipstick, all deeply enriched with sultry berry tones. Unsurprisingly, the lipstick was the only item that really appealed to me, despite its lacklustre appearance in the tube.  It is a stunning colour; intense with a matte finish. Cranberry lipstick is a spicy reddy-brown shade, not too dissimilar from that mug of mulled wine you may have enjoyed over the festive time. The only disappointment with this lipstick is that it is incredibly drying; I don't suffer from dry lips but it even managed to make my lips look and feel a little scaly. This is such a shame as my lipstick collection is crying out for a beautiful burgundy lipstick like this.

The Berry Collection is currently still available from Sleek Makeup and is only £10.
Are you going very berry for this lipstick?

Beautiful colour - I feel like it could be quite 1920s but that may just be my romanticised view!

I love the colour of this but I don't fancy the other two products that come with it! Shame it's drying though :( x

ashleighjoan said...

Gorgeous shade. The drying aspect is unfortunate.

Brit Wit said...

I got this for Christmas too and I absolutely love it. I usually apply a berry coloured gloss over the top, and I haven't found it to be drying with that combination.

I also love the blush from that collection! I adore berry colours :)

I bought the same set, I really like the lipstick and am warming to the blush, but still have no idea how to use a berry toned kohl pencil.

I love these dark shades at the moment! I was out with my boyfriend and put on Barry M black lipstick for a laugh, then we both realised it actually looked pretty hot! xo

Kellie said...

That color is STUNNING. I wonder if it would work on a more paler skin tone

Im having a blog sale

Milly said...

thank you for all your comments girls, I really appreciate you taking the time to read and leave me a comment. In answer to a few of your questions,

@clay - yes, it too reminded me of Eva Green in Casino Royale. :)

@kellie - i think it would really suit paler skin, more so than it suits mine in all honesty. Give it a go!

@kirstieStuart - i agree, the eye kohl has laid redundant since I got the set!

@kirsty F - i don't tend to use lipliner as much as i should when applying brighter shades, but i do always use a lip brush.

@frankie - a similar mac colour could be 'dark side' - a deep burgundy.

@princesselfy - great minds indeed! looking forward to reading your post :)

@vodkaandroses - Hi. I think this just demonstrates how drying and tricky it was to apply. It has obviously gone a bit patchy on my lower lip whilst i was taking the photos.

I love the colour on you but I'm more of a pink/nude/peach lipstick kinda girl. :)

Charlotte Biggs said...

I have a few of the sleek matte lipsticks, amazing colours but yes very drying! However if you dab some Vaseline under and over the top, it makes it so much better! xx

This shade looks gorgeous on you. I wish Sleek was sold here in the US. I only order when I have a few items on my wishlist, bc the shipping kills.

PS- Just found your blog! Love it :) Please check out mine if you get the chance. Have a lovely week!
