I'd seen so many positive reviews of Sleek's latest liner offering that I decided to pick up a few. I went for two shades that I could use as lip pencils because I already have more than enough eye pencils. This post is about a rose pink shade called Red Sky Night.
The actual pencil is black with a coloured tip which corresponds to the shade of the pencil; I thought that was a nice touch. It's nothing ground breaking but it does the job nicely.
Formula-wise, the pencil is smooth and creamy. It glides on my lips with ease. I'm confident that the more eye suitable shades are equally as creamy. I've used this a few times as as all over lip colour and it's definitely more comfortable on my lips than I was expecting. When I swatched this on my hand and let it set, it was difficult to completely remove so I can vouch for them being relatively long lasting. I usually apply a gloss on top but even then the staying power is decent. Without a gloss it would easily last five hours on me which is unheard of!
This pink shade is a bit of a departure from my usual nudes and peachy/orange shades but it's been a welcome change. It does look a touch more cool-toned on my lips than it does swatched, though.
I'm planning on picking up a few more shades (I already have a red shade to try out) because I think these could be comparable to the NYX Slide On or Milani Liquif'Eye pencils.
