FOTD: Orange Lava

Sleek Makeup's Pout Paint in "Lava"
Orange lips are all the rage this summer but I've been avoiding trying them out because I don't have a wish to look like Ronald McDonald. However, having seen plenty of dark-skinned ladies rocking this look lately, I thought "what the heck?" I rummaged in my makeup case and found Sleek's Pout Paint in "Lava". These Pout Paints are supposedly similar to the ones by OCC and it went on smoothly with the tiniest amount needed.
The finish wasn't as matte as I'd have liked but it's extremely long-lasting and there's very little fading even after eating and drinking. However, make sure your lips are properly exfoliated before using this as it WILL highlight every bit of dry skin, flakiness on your lips.

I paired the Pout Paint with NARS' "Taj Mahal" blush and lashings of mascara. I can't even remember the last time I went out without eyeliner but I think it worked. This look took all of 10 minutes (I shocked myself) and it's a nice, no-fuss Summer look.

Sleek Pout Paints are extremely affordable and I think I picked mine up in a deal in Superdrug last year for £5. They can be purchased here.

Have you tried Sleek Pout Paints before? Let me know.
