Bright Lips ♥ Sleek 'Fuchsia' Lipstick

Hello Everyone 
I was lucky enough to win Leigh's giveaway, and a sleek lipstick was one of the prizes. As I could choose which shade I would like I went for a colour I have nothing like & would never usually opt for, a bright hot pink!
I've not ventured much into Sleek products so was really excited to try one of their lipsticks and safe to say I have not been disappointed! This is a sheen finish named Fuchsia which like its name suggests is a hot, hot pink!

The formula of these sheen lipsticks are amazing. In fact, I wouldn't hesitate to say it's by far one of the best I've tried or come across. It's seriously creamy and glides so smoothly over the lips. The staying power of this is, again, one of the best I've tried. Now, this may be because the colour is so intense but speaking for this shade it stayed looking the same until a few hours after I first put it on and then slowly faded to more of a pink stain but was still very visible!

It's really pigmented and the hand swatch below genuinely was one quick swipe! It's a very intense shade but can be blotted to be more wearable. It's bright pink but leans very very slightly purple rather than a true pink which doesn't really translate well in the pictures.

I've never done a 'lips' swatch before, does it look weird haha let me know if I shouldn't do another!
Overall, I'm very impressed with these and I believe these are one of the best 'drugstore' lipsticks and are excellent for their price. I will definitely be trying more shades and possibly the other finish, matte.
RRP: £4.99

Let me know what you think, would you dare to wear this?

(Also, quick thanks to everyone as I recently reached & now slightly passed 100 followers! Wowee I'm so grateful!)
