I wrote a review about Sleek's Pout Paints before; the little liquid lipcolours that are very pigmented and you can either use on its own or mix with a different colour for new effects. I quite like the concept of mixing lipsticks like you would mix paint because it allows for a lot more variety even if they're not as easy to use as a regular lipstick in a bullet. This time I'm reviewing rosy nude (Minx) and a bright coral pink (Milkshake). Keep on reading if you want to know what I think!
The packaging of the Pout Paints is adequate enough. You are meant to squeeze the product out of the applicator, I like that it's made like that because it's a more hygenic option. The tubes are quite tiny but when compared to a regular sized lipstick they're not actually that tiny. I've noticed that you also only need a tiny drop every time, so one of these little tubes will last you quite a while!
Both Pout Paints are very opaque in just one application and have a glossy finish. When applied on the lips the Pout Paints do dry up a bit, but the glossy finish doesn't really go away unless you blot your lips after applying.
Both Pout Paints were easy enough to apply with a lip brush. I had no problem with patchyness or anything as they were vibrant and opaque almost right away.

These Pout Paints wear for a fair amount of time, but since they're quite creamy, don't expect them to last all through the day. They'll definitely need a touch-up after food! That said, the colours are absolutely gorgeous and the formula is very comfortable on the lips. I have very dry lips and can't handle any uncomfortable textures, but the Pout Paints feel almost hydrating and didn't dry my lips out any further and didn't make the dry patches on my lips show up either.
