A tinted lip conditioning balm formulated with natural oils such as Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Avocado Extract and Vitamin A, C and E to help condition the lips and lock in moisture.
Sleek’s Pout Polishes come in 11 shades. This review is for the color Raspberry Rhapsody–a bright, raspberry-ruby pink.
Pout Polishes come in plastic jars with twist-off tops. This packaging isn’t ideal because you have to dip your finger into the product each time you want to use it, which introduces bacteria into the balm.
Raspberry Rhapsody is a bright, pigmented color that is made wearable because of its transparent finish. It looks like a glossy balm on the lips. The product has no stickiness to it at all.
The formula is very emollient, bringing plenty of moisture to the lips. It’s stiffer in the pan compared to MAC’s Tinted Lip Conditioners, but warms up quickly to the touch.
Being a lip balm, it’s not very long-wearing and will last on the lips for 1-2 hours before needing re-application. But the color does leave a light stain behind, so you’ll get the benefit of color even though the product has come off. The stain lasts for about an hour.
The best part about Pout Polishes is the inclusion of titanium dioxide–the ingredient that provides UVA and UBV protection for an SPF of 15.
Ease of Use: 9.5/10
Application is easy because the formula glides on and the color is sheer. You do need to layer a little to make sure the color is even.
For $6.50, you get 0.34 ounces (almost 10 grams) of balm.
