Night Swatch: Loved Up and Exxxagerate

L-R: Loved Up/ Exxxagerate/
With Flash/Without Flash

Ohh have I perhaps broken rule number one (or maybe two) of blogging?
Only take pictures in natural light…never artificial, warm lights…at night.

However, after several requests I decided to post this as early as possible!

This wont be a full review as I have not yet had the opportunity to rock these out for a while, this will simply be a quick ‘show and tell!’

I am rocking two of Sleek’s newest True Colour Lipsticks.
Above you can see Loved Up and Exxxagerate which both retail for £4.99 each.

Loved Up is a cool hot pink which comes in a creamy sheen texture, whilst Exxxagerate is a creamy blueish purple which comes in a matte texture with slight gold reflects.

Although I like Exxxagerate it is a bit disappointing colour wise. It looks a bit washed out above but this could be due to the warm lights but the picture is not far off from it’s true colour
I expected a deeper richer purple.
 If this is what you are looking for I recommend Wet N Wild’s Ravin Raisin’.
I am loving Loved Up (no pun intended…was that even a pun, who knows?) another great dupe for Candy Yum Yum!

Both lipstick require several coats to get a decent colour pay off but once they are on they look great!

I know a lot of readers wanted to see swatches so I uploaded them as fast as I could unfortunately I could only take them at night.

If you wish to see these lippies in natural daylight just let me know with a comment below and I will get to it for this weekend!

      It's a great colour, perfect for adding a pop of colour if you're having an ordinary outfit day!

    I'd love to see daytime swatches, however I am disappointed in the Exxxagerate as well. Loved up, looks lovely!

    To think I was lusting over exxxagerate but after seeing your swatches I don't think I'm going to like it at all!!!!

    I will still probably get it to add to my lipstick swatches gallery but have a feeling I will give it away straight afterwards

      I know! It's a bit dissappointing. It's not deep enough for me at all. I just checked out your lip stick swatches gallery! A fab idea! Very helpful!

    Loved Up looks great on you. You've convinced em to buy especially as I have a hot pink lippy obsession right now

      Thanks I am loving all these hot pinks as well! They work better than I thought on my skin tone!

      It's very pretty! Gorgeous on darker skin tones!

    I have both shades and I always get a compliment when wearing Exxxagerate. Its such a beautiful matte purple

      It is a beautiful colour, I can't lie. I think my expectations have played it down but it is stunning and very unique!
