I am addicted to Sleek products and since they are not readily available in the US I usually put together a sizable order every few months and will throw all sorts of items in my basket to try out. I purchased three tubes of Pout Paint and love all of them. Minx is my favorite color and shows up as a pale pink on my lips. I like that I don't need to coat my lips in concealer if the color is lighter than my natural pigment, it covers well on its own. I too experienced the product separating in the tubes but had no issues remixing by shaking the tubes before applying, I usually apply with either my fingers or a brush. I don't know if I would say they are a dupe to OCC lip tars but are a great product with a more natural color selection.

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.
