Pout paint is the new ultimate lip pigment that provides a blast of colour in one purse sized tube! The intensely saturated formula provides outstanding colour pay-off in just one tiny speck, and dries to a long lasting satiny finish. With a wide variety of Pout Paints to choose from you can mix up your very own unique shade using a combination of colours, or simply go for one stand out striking pop of colour.
Sleek’s Pout Paints come in 11 shades. Milkshake, a coral-pink color, is reviewed below. You can also read the review for the shade in Minx here.
Pout Paints come in small squeeze tubes that have small openings, which allows good control over how much product you dispense.
Though Minx’s consistency felt like a thick gloss, I found Milkshake to be more watery. The formula isn’t sticky at all and applies more like a cream than a gloss would.
The pigmentation is strong. If you apply a small drop, you can sheer out the completely opaque effect on the lips. If you apply a very thin layer, it acts more like a lip stain. If you want an opaque finish, you can get it, but the effect does look more unnatural. Milkshake may also be a difficult color to wear because it is so strongly coral.
The formula gives a medium amount of moisture to the lips. With a thin layer, the color doesn’t accentuate lip-lines, but it does emphasize them just a little upon layering.
I noticed that this color separated more than Minx did. So you need to shake it up, otherwise, you may get more oil than pigment coming out of the tube.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
This color was more streaky than other Pout Paint lip colors, so it took more blending to even out the finish. You can apply the color with your finger, a lip brush, or a concealer brush to create more precise lines.
You should also shake the tube vigorously before dispensing the product. The oil separates from the pigment over time if the product is left sitting.
For just $8.00, you get 0.27 fl oz. A very similar product by OCC–Lip Tars–are the same size but cost $13.00.
