I bought this Sleek Lipstick Palette in Siren 859 palette as this was literally the only place I could find a (semi) suitable orange colour for the price I was willing to pay.  You’ve seen me use this palette before in my Christmas Collection.

 

I think this palette is a good Valentine’s collection.  The Sleek website even suggests this is the one if you have a hot date! The theme is orange, so all the lip colours have an orange tinge and it has a peach, a pink, and orange and a red.  I’ve tested them all out here:

Peach

This one is not for me! It’s too pale for my skin tone.  It is a very bright satin peach which I have to say, I struggled to apply.  I needed to line the outline of my lips with a nude pencil so the colour had something to grip on to.  I then applied one layer with my Ruby & Millie lip brush as the included brush is far too tiny for me, blotted, then applied another layer.  It took ages! I will need to use this colour mixed with another, which I guess is the fun of palettes.

 

Orange

This is a matte colour which is ok for me.  It acts like a stain rather than an opaque lip colour (which I would have preferred) but this way it is more wearable on a daily basis. I applied this with my Models Own lip brush, dabbing it on until I achieved the desired colour.  I used this in my Chocolate, Orange, Cinnamon & Nutmeg and Chocolate Orange Lips looks.

 

Pink

Wow! This came out neon!  A neon orange-pink!  This is very bright but I love it – a real statement colour.  I this this is really pretty and perfect for Valentine’s day.  This is another satin colour and I applied this with my Ruby & Millie lip brush.  This left my lips stained so be warned!

 

Red

This is another statement colour.  This is an orange-red gloss which simply screams “look at me”.  Another great Valentine’s colour.  I used this for my Sultry Siren Santa look.  This was the easiest to apply, especially using the lip brush end of my Bella Pierre Dual brush.

For Valentine’s day I currently can’t choose my favourite. Maybe the pink?

The best thing about Sleek as a brand is the palettes.  There’s so much choice in a little package at a really good price.  Here, I can wear 3 out of 4 without mixing the colours which is pretty good! I’ve already got my eye on a few more palettes.
