These are utterly mixable, opaque lip colours that can be worn full on glossy or blotted down to a stain of colour.I bought 8 shades (over a couple of weeks as Superdrug kept selling out of some of the colours because they had a buy2 get one free offer on)
The tubes contain 8ml of product, the same as OCC Lip Tars. The product is thicker than lip tars, which are very runny. This does mean you need to use more pout paint, but at the price that's not really a problem.
The Pout Paints have a fruity scent, which reminds me of pineapple. This is another thing i prefer over OCC, which have a cloying mint scent that does not fade.
Firstly swatches of the colours straight out of the tube (photos adjusted to show true colours)-
163 Peek a Bloo -
A true colour to darken the other shades would be a black, which Sleek really need to include as not only would it gives more winter based shades but also a true black gloss.
154 Mauve Over
A very cool toned purple pink. Very opaque.
A deep rich pinky purple. Very opaque.
157 Pin Up
Pillar box red shade. Very opaque
Here is Pin Up compared to OCC's NSFW. Both are as opaque as each other, but i'd say Pin Up is a truer red, compared to NSFW which has slightly cooler tones.
Almost neon bubblegum pink. Very opaque
Bright true orange. Opaque, but not as much as the pink tones
Peachy pink light shade. Not as opaque as darker pinks.
153 Cloud Nine
Pure white. I know this isn't an everyday colour to wear on its own, but for make up artists a useful fashion shade, hence why i have swatched it. Not as opaque as other colours.
Of course the thing with these is that they can be mixed to make many more shades. I went mad over the weekend mixing all the colours to see what i could make (please excuse the wonky edges on some). Here are the results!
Very pale pink
Warm rose pink
Rich Fuchsia pink
Pinky red (pinker than Pinup)
153/154/163 tiny amount 161
Light blue purple
Rich blue purple
Deep aubergine purple
Dark plum purple
High Fashion shades-
Pale mint green
Patting a shimmery pigment over pout paint can create a matt lip with interesting duochrome effect
Pinkini with pink/ blue shimmer -
added shimmery gloss -
Lastly an experiment in Ombre -
To recap -
Plus - Opaque,very versatile, lots of shades to to experiment with, last a good amount of time. Doesn't feather unless applied thickly. Cheaper than OCC. Lovely fruity scent that isn't cloying.
Cons - Some shades aren't as opaque or are harder to get even coverage. Range needs a black to create darker shades, like a deep red, burgundy colour, dark navy blue or dark purple.
