Hello everyone! Today I'm going to be reviewing this gorgeous Sleek Lip 4 palette in the shade "Mardi Gras". Sleek isn't a brand I buy a lot of products from, but when ever I try something from them I'm always impressed. I won this little lip palette in a giveaway and I have to say it's one of my favourite lip products to use! "Mardi Gras" is a limited edition palette, however I believe you can still order this off of the Sleek website.

The Sleek Lip 4 palettes consist of four highly pigmented lip colours (designed to suit all skin tones) that can be used on their own or mixed together to create a unique shade. You can either apply a thin layer to create a lip stain or use more product for a highly pigmented lip look. They come in a small sleek, black palette which has a large mirror and a little lip brush. As the lip colours are so pigmented and can stain, I would definitely recommend you using the lip brush as it does work very well! In the "Mardi Gras" palette you get:

Rio - a matte electric purple
Firework - a matte coral red
Carnival - a satin shocking pink
Masquerade - a glossy coral pink

As you can see from the pictures above, the only shade I'm not comfortable wearing alone is Rio. As it's a purple shade I do find it looks very odd on the lips and I'm not confident enough to pull it off! I also think it can look strange when mixed into the other 3 shades as it gives them a purple tint which doesn't suit me at all. Of course, if you're more confident and feel that you can pull off a purple lip, then this palette would be perfect for you! The rest of the shades are very flattering and look lovely on the lips. My favourite out of the bunch is Masquerade and is the shade I get the most wear out of, especially for the day time. I also think Firework is another gorgeous shade that can easily be worn day or night. As for Carnival, because it's such a bright pink I would only wear this during the evening with a simple eye look.

The two glossy/ satin finish lip colours (Carnival and Masquerade) have the nicest formula and are the most pigmented. With just a touch of the brush on to the product, you get enough colour to cover the lips. The matte shades (Rio and Firework) do need a little bit more product but are still highly pigmented and easy to work with. All of the shades are very long lasting and stay on the lips for a good 4 hours.

Overall I am so impressed with the Sleek Lip 4 Palette in "Mardi Gras"! This is something I personally wouldn't have picked up, so I'm really glad I got to try it. I do think this is a product worth picking up as for just £8.99 you are getting 4 highly pigmented lip colours in a travel friendly palette.

What are your thoughts on the Lip 4 Palette in "Mardi Gras"?
Have you tried any of the other Lip 4 palettes?

  1. The colours look gorgeous! What do you do about touching up on the go though? I've always wondered this with lip palettes!

    1. It is quite a small palette and I find it's fine to carry around in your handbag :) As the lip brush comes in the palette, plus you have the large mirror, you can just use it normally throughout the day! xx

  7. I agree that Rio may look a little odd on it's own... loving the look of Firework though! Although all the colours in the palette are gorgeous! (:

  10. Such beautiful shades, I'd never wear Rio either, far too dramatic for a nude lippy lover! x

  11. Ahh, i bought this palette in Tease and i am impressed by the quality. However, i do find that they stain so much and it took me a while to get it off my skin after swatching it although maybe it was because my shades were much more vibrant and darker compared with your ones.

    Thanks for the review~ was interesting to read how others liked the product :) Have a great day <3

  17. This looks lovely and would be perfect for taking on holiday so you've got a few different looks :) The only thing I don't like about lip palettes is the fact they are palettes haha, like I hate carring around a palette of lipsticks just to top up one, when I could just carry a lipstick in my bag.

    1. I agree, I would much prefer to bring one lipstick! But this would be great if you were going away and wanted a selection of shades - plus it's small enough to pop in your bag! xx

  18. That is such a lovely palette! I wouldn't use the purple shade to. I definitely wouldn't be able to pull it off!

  19. Especially love Firework on your lips! Can't get Sleek in Holland, but I got a pretty eyeshadow palette!

  21. Firework seems like a really nice shade. I'm not a fan of using my fingers to apply lip products but the texture looks lovely.

  23. I really love Fireworks and Masquerade but do they dehydrate the lips?
    Btw I think that after this post I'll try a similiar palette here in Italy :)

    1. The lip colours aren't very drying, obviously the matte ones are more so than the glossy/ satin finish ones :) Just apply a lip balm before and your lips will be fine! xx

  24. I loveeeee Sleek Lipsticks, for £4.99 each they're just amazing! I couldn't justify this palette though, as it would be so annoying to have to use a lip brush all the time on the go etc but the shades are beautifulllll on you, so it would be perfect to apply at home! xx

  25. i've recently picked up quite a few sleek products after hearing so many good things but have steered away from the lip palettes as i was unsure about them- but they look really good! i'm shocked how pigmented they are and how long lasting they are so i might have to have to get myself one to try! lovely review, gorgeous blog! given you a follow :)

  26. I wouldn't expect a lip palette to have such pigmented colours. Will have to look into one of the Sleek ones now :)
