Sleek lipstick in cherry - Review.

I've had this lipstick in my collection for a long time now, think I bought it last summer, I know, I know, it's not really a summer colour but this is my idea of a perfect red.

Sleek lipstick in cherry - £4.99


I'm not sure how I feel about this lipstick, I absolutely adore the colour and it feels really lovely and glossy on the lips but it just smudges sooooo easily and drives me crazy! If it's windy then I don't dare go near this lipstick, my hair will get caught in it and smear it all over my face which is not what any girl wants when they're trying to get on with their daily duties, even when my hair is up, if the smallest strand gets stuck to my lips I fear the worst, I end up looking in the mirror when I get home and realise I look like some sort of vicious cat has attacked my face! 
It's such a shame because I really really love the feel of the lipstick and the colour, it feels super light and nourishing when you first put it on. Another problem I have with this lipstick is that it doesn't stay very well and ends up leaving your lips feeling and looking dry and patchy, it's definitely not one of those lipsticks where you can just apply and not have to worry about it.
I thought I could just get away with wearing this at night, say if I'm heading into town but not having a mental night. Boy, was I wrong! I wore this to a lovely club which wasn't too busy and I was only having a few drinks which I thought would be the perfect opportunity for this lipstick to show me how great it is, but within probably half an hour of getting there I thought I'd go to the loo to check and it had leaked out of my lip line and all over my face! I don't even know how I'd got it everywhere but in the morning I woke up with it all over my hands, clothes and face! Basically everywhere but my lips! 

I can tell this is going to be one of those lipsticks which sits in my drawer and I'll pick it out occasionally thinking "it can't be that bad" use it and then be reminded why I never use it!
In general I like the packaging and everything, it's cute and easy just to throw in your bag, it's very classic and non offensive.
I probably won't repurchase this colour lipstick again, however I do want to try some of the other shades of sleek lipsticks as in terms of pigmentation this lipstick is brill especially as it's only one of the sheen formulations. I've got my eye on a few of the other colours and will definitely be reviewing those if they impress me!
