OMG indeed! I love it when a product takes me by surprise and this one sure did! When I received this in December’s glossybox, I wasn’t sure it was my colour. I was thrilled to see a fill size lipstick but OMG looked very red in the bullet... and I struggle with reds – they wash me out unless they have strong pink or orange running through them and OMG is definitely more of an orange shade.
It’s a difficult shade to describe, a brightened orangey red is the best I best I can come up with. I can’t liken it to anything else and there’s no dupe I know of. It’s a highly pigmented, vivid and super rich shade with just one coat. It glides on easily from the bullet but for neater application I’d recommend using a brush. Sleek call it a sheen finish but it’s much more than a sheen! If I’m comparing it to MAC it’s somewhere between Satin and Amplified. It’s slightly creamy, moisturising and long lasting! In fact it stains the lips somewhat but I’ll forgive it that. It’s a surprisingly wearable colour I think, yes it’s more of an evening shade, but it’s bright without being overbearing. It didn’t was me out, but I’d imagine it would look even better in the summer months with some colour in my face. Overall I’m super impressed by this very affordable lippy and I’ll be heading to Sleek to check out their other shades.
