From Sleek Makeup’s website:
Bare Minimum Pout Polish is a glossy nude with Jojoba, avocado and sweet Almond oils, ensuring that chapped lips are a thing of the past.
What I liked:
- shiny finish
- moisturizing, not sticky
- contains SPF
- packaging is cute
- the price
What I didn’t like:
- very sheer
- needs to be applied with a brush
The Pout Polishes are among my favourite products from Sleek Makeup. These tinted lip balms are very moisturizing, have a very shiny finish and provide sheer to medium pigmentation.
I really love the hint of color they provide and that’s why Bare Minimum, the latest shade that’s part of the Nude collection, disappointed me a bit. A pale peachy beige in the pot, Bare Minimum is colorless on the lips. It provides a lot of shine, though, and I can see it appeal to those who love very natural looks. I also think it is nice that they added a clear shade to this range, but personally, I would have liked it to be even just a touch more pigmented.
If you don’t mind the sheer color payoff, Bare Minimum is a great lip balm. The texture is not sticky and very moisturizing, leaving your lips soft and smooth, even after the shine has disappeared (about 2 hours later). In addition, it also contains SPF to protect your lips from the sun rays. Isn’t that great? Just like the other Pout Polishes, it has a strong vanilla scent, which I’m not too fond of but I know a lot people like it. Another thing that may put some people off is that you’ll have to use either your fingers or a brush to apply it. Despite that, I find the jar packaging cute.
