For quite some time it is all about liquid lipsticks. Even better when the lipstick is matte. But some of them are deceiving, creating layer of colour that doesn't dry and isn't completely matte, even if the word 'matte' has been boldly stated. All I want to say that matte should be matte!

Apparently Sleek Makeup gets it, because they created product called Matte Me in perfect shade 'Birthday Suit'. Can we just take one second to admire the name of the shade? More about the shade in general. It is perfectly wearable nude with muted dusty rose undertones, that would suit with most of the skin tones, makeup looks and complexions. Texture wise it glides on like a cream, at first you would think it won't be matte because of its creamy smooth feeling. Few seconds of waiting and it dries up into smooth velvety matte finish that won't budge at all. It doesn't feel dry or uncomfortable, doesn't flake or feel heavy. 

If you want to achieve perfectly natural matte lips without feeling cakey, I recommend (and apparently Sleek too) slightly blotting the excess product off after it has dried. To ensure the perfect combination of goodness in a tube, Sleek has provided it with long and skinny, quite pointed applicator to get precise application even without a lip liner. Staying power? I wouldn't say it lasts all day, you should definitely reapply if you want it to be on your lips all day long. But you will get good amount of hours out of it, and that is definitely better than most of the lipsticks out there can offer.
