I have 4 of these and how great they were - initially!
When I first bought them, they were extremely pigmented. I then forgot to use them for a while, and the product separated so that when I wanted to use them again, a much less pigmented glossy liquid came out. I tried and tried and cannot get the product to the original state, so now I have a couple of sheer slightly pigmented glosses on my hands...
I imagine that if I continue to use them, at some point I'll run out of the clearish liquid and will get the pigment back - but I don't think I want a drying liquid without the gloss!
Otherwise the feel is great, my lips are quite dry and these are non-drying and apply easily and evenly, even straight from the tube. The gloss isn't sticky, which for me is great because I actually don't like lip glosses.
If these didn't separate, I'd buy them again in a heartbeat. As it stands, I am left disappointed.

I love love love this product! I now own 3 colours, Mink ( a mauve pink), Port ( a dark fuschia) and Pin Up (a deep red.) I love the formula, you need the tiniest amount on your lip brush and its so pigmented that you can cover all your lips with such little product. I love the small size, it fits easily inside my handbag if I need a touch up but usually it lasts all day. I sometimes mix the red and fuschia to make a darker colour, there so easy to mix and apply. I am definitely going to buy all the other colours, I don't know how good of a dupe they are for the Lip tars but as far as I'm concerned these are great. And sleek is bringing out such great products!

I have a few problems with this product and considering the good stuff I had heard I'm disappointed! I will list the pro's and con's going into detail there.
Alternative to OCC lip tars, but in no way are a dupe.
They do seem to stain my lips which I guess is a plus even though the actual product soon disappears!
Such small tubes, why not make a bigger tube and charge more, I know it only takes a small amount but II'd prefer a bigger amount, I mean its not exactly a purse friendly product anyway!.
Colour range in store is awful, they have about 3 different colors in Superdrug and often they are sold out, I cannot seem to find the white one online and I don't want to pay postage just for that when I got the others in store!
You have to have the white one if you're planning on mixing colors because they will always go darker, I went to Superdrug hoping to get the plum color but it was sold out so I bought the blue and red colors because that's all they had and I thought they would mix into a nice plum but they didn't even when I made it mostly red or mostly blue the color was always a murky dark purple!
Over all I would not bother buying these again, they are a waste of time when there is already a great product which fills the void of a gloss-matte lipstick.

I bought this in Minx when I bit the bullet and made a Sleek order. The colour is very nice, it lasts quite a while, and you only need the smallest amount, but there are so many bad points that I just couldn't like it. Like other people said, you need to use a brush if you don't want it to smear all over the place (fingers work, but you have to be very careful). For me, it wasn't very drying, but it really emphasized all the lines and dry skin on my lips. Exfoliating is a must! Also, I can't seem to get it to work with balm under/over it or gloss. If I wear a balm underneath, all the colour would just settle in the lines of my lips or smear all over the place. Very gross looking! The product separates pretty easily too. I didn't use it for about two weeks, and when I tried it next, this yellowish oil came out. No amount of shaking would mix the colours back, either. Pretty disappointed!

I have this in 'Pin Up'. To me it was quite drying. I applied it to clean lips, but it kept drying them during the day. It does not budge when applied, but if I apply lip balm to try and calm the dryness, then it starts transferring. My fingers were a mess! It needs a brush to be applied, so it cannot be carried and applied everywhere - a major minus. Plus I don't think 6 pounds is that cheap, really it's just a lip product! Will not re-purchase.

I have three shades of this and I love it. They are fun to mix and use. Durable aswell. It doesn't have a scent, which I like the best. (Not a fan of scents and flavours in make up.) Though, it needs a brush to use and I cannot carry one with me during the day, which is the downside of it.

I have this in minx, bought after reading mixed reviews but seeing as it's quite cheap thought I'd give it a whirl.
This is the only lip product I've ever had to actually practice to get right! It's taken a few weeks of trying but have finally perfected it. I hated it at first, but i used too much. As others have said, you really only do need the TINIEST amount, otherwise it just travels to the corners and middle of lips and looks horrendous. Also needs lip balm beforehand as it's quite drying, and will cling to any dry or flaky patches so exfoliating is a good idea. I find applying with my finger works best, kind of rubbing it in a little. Using a brush applies too much and just smears it around lips. The colour looks way better on than it does in the tube, more of a pale pink/peach than an orange/peach as it appears in the tube.
The packaging isn't so good, product always leaks into the lid and I think I'll end up wasting a lot with wiping it off so it doesn't end up all over my makeup bag. Even so, it'll still probably last forever! Will definately pick up another colour.

i have this in minx and peachy keen and i think minx is my favourite of the two. definitely agree that a little goes a long way and its great for creating a bold lip! definitely do the prep though, first time i tried it, it showed up my gross flakey lips, oops!

I have this in Minx but I had a hard time deciding between that or Milkshake. I only use this to cover the dual pigmentation on my lips - dark around the edges and pink in the middle. I usually wear lipstick over the top. I've not worn it on its own yet since I've not had it for that long - about a month.
Really worth the price since you only need a tiny amount. For ladies with dark lips I really recommend it, just make sure to put some lip balm on a good 5 mins beforehand so your lips don't dry out too much.

I have this in two colours peek-a bloo and pin-up. Given that I already have OCC lip tars and I'm not a make up artist I already know all of these products are going to last for aaaaaages so I didn't want to over do it.
This red and blue are easily the best colors of the range to experiment with if you wear a thin layer (really thin with the blue one) of pout paint first then which ever lipstick you want over it, great for using up lackluster lipsticks.
I have already mixed the blue with a bright pink lipstick and made an insane creamy purple. The blue also darkens/deepens any lip colour you put on over it. Mix them together and you have the perfect vampy deep red.
In fact the only reason I won't buy them again is because they will take forever to get through, I would say even longer than the OCC lip tars since there is no waste, thanks to the great packaging nozzle.

I have 3 colours of the Sleek Pout Paints that are offered online or in Superdrug stores. I have:
Milkshake, which is a coraly pink colour
Cloud 9, which is a pure white colour
Rosette, which is a bright, almost fuchsia, pink colour
I originally brought these because Iíd always wanted to try OCC Lip tar, but wasnít sure if I could get them in the UK. I canít make any comparisons in quality between the OCC Liptars because I havenít tried them, but I can say that the packaging of the Sleek Pout Polish is better because of the dispenser. Check out a video XSparkage did on the comparison †on the two for a better comparison.
I can give you an idea of how these are though. I have used these once and I wonít be using them again. Not because they are not great quality or anything like that. If you have the patience for them they are brilliant but I just canít be asked with all the hassle.
It takes mixing to get a good colour, and you need to use a brush because itís like the most impossible stuff to get off your hands.
The colours are super intense and you need the smallest bit to go over your entire lips, which is good I suppose. I just think that, for the colours I would use in the range, that I could get them in a simple gloss of lipstick form. †

It says on the back ' a little goes a long way' and it certainly does. You really only need the tiniest amount for this product to get perfectly pigmented lips! I have the one in Pin Up, it feels and looks lovely.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium, Cool Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
I have these in every shade I love them. They're creamy they last and are fun to mix together to customise.
My fave mix so far is mauve over with cloud 9 and peachy keen.
A little goes a long way.
Apply using a lip brush it's really hard to remove from your fingers.
I make my fave mix and add a bit of lip butter/vaseline to make a balm.

I love these, I own three in Peach Keen, Milkshake & Lava they are all really pretty. Milkshake reminds me of MAC Viva Glam Gaga but far less blue toned and a lot more wearable. They are high pigmentation but with Lava (a bright orange) a little can give a semi-sheer orange look which doesn't look very over powering which is a plus. The wear of the products is pretty good, longer than gloss & lipstick. It's about the same as a stain or another long wear product but without the durability with food & drink (can't say about kissing though but I can't imagine it would wear too well). The only real problem I had was separation, I found Milkshake the worst for it with Lava it barely being a problem and Peachy Keen somewhere between that. I will defiantly buy more or repurchase when mine runs out-which I doubt I'd see the day since you need so little.

I just bought four of them! (Blue, Red, Peach & Milkshake) Great to play with and to mix with other lipsticks. I suspect I have now cured my not-quite-right purchases by altering them with these gems! Also improves their staying power!

This is a really amazing lip product. I have this in two shades, milkshake and mauve over, they are both fantastic. They last a long time, even if I eat and drink. I find that many long lasting lip products dry out my lips, but I don't find this especially drying. You need little product to get a full coverage and they are easy to apply nicely. Another thing that I love is that you can mix and customize your own shades if you have more than one pout paint. Can't remember the last time I bought a product that was so worth the money! Love it!

I have 3 OCC lip tars and these Pout Paints are amazing and dare I say even better? There are less colours than lip tars, but the paints are much less drying. I find the lip tars are long wearing but I end up with chapped dry lips after. The paints don't last as long, but aren't as drying as the tars. Value for money, no petrolatum in themÖamazing.

I got this in 'port'. I love this product, a little goes a long way. althought the colour does wear off, it leaves a lovely stain on the lips. I am in love with the colour, the perfect fuschia lip for me. I even wear it to work (I work in real estate). Will definatley buy again if I ever run out.

These are the perfect alternative to the OCC lip tars, they are cheaper and can be found at Superdrug. There are a range of colours i have Milkshake which is a dupe of the OCC Divine shade, Minx which is a dupe of the OCC Memento and Peachy Keen which is a orange/coral colour. As with the OCC lip tars the smallest drop goes a long way, full opaque finish, lasts a long time even through drinking and eating and dries to a matte finish. The tube will last a long time and i would definately recommend these as an alternative to OCC they are exactly the same!

I have two of these, Pin Up (bright true red) and Peek - a - Bloo (blue).
They are dupes for the OCC lip tars, but cheaper - 5 GBP, which is about $8. I bought mine off Ebay.
They apply beautifully - I use the tiniest amount, less than a grain of rice, for full opaque coverage of my lips. They are matte and last well. They mix beautifully, and I definitely plan to get several more shades!
I prefer these to the OCC lip tars because they are a tiny bit thicker and easier to work with.
