I'm obsessed with this lip stain from the Sleek Studio Collection called DUKE which I purchased a few months ago. There are a bunch of other shades in their lip stain collection but I fell in love with this dark vampy purple shade after seeing it on Chidinma of ThatIgboChick. The colour might be a bit too much for some of you but I'm sure you can make it work either ways. I had so much fun creating this look. It is very quick and simple with subtle eyes being that the lips are the focus point.

I see myself wearing this look during the weekends or when I have an event at night and I really want to stand out.

Okay, enough talk! See the pictorial and other products used below: 

With my foundation routine and brows already done, I applied an eyeshadow base all over my lids.

Going in with my one of my favourite eyeshadow palettes, I applied a metallic purple/wine shade to my crease as a crease/transition colour with a blending brush from Kuddy Cosmetics.

Then, I gently applied a light satin pink shade from the same palette to my lids using a flat shading brush.

Top to Bottom: Blended both colours to remove any harsh lines, applied kajal into my waterline and drew a slim line above my lids with a liquid eyeliner.

Using my favourite mascara at the moment, I applied two coats to my natural lashes.

Applied my falsies using Red Cherry Lashes in 747S. Love it because it does not look extremely fake.

Continuing with my face, I applied a bright pink blush to the apples of my cheeks with the Real Techniques Blush Brush.

Next, I used a fan brush from Elf Cosmetics to apply highlighter to my cheekbones. Love it.

For the lips, I lined them first with a deep purple liner from L.A Girl Cosmetics.

And applied the lip stain on both lips using three coats.

Finished off with powder and voila...

Finished Look

  • What I like about this product is the LED light attached to the cover which you can use at night or when you're in a dark place and you need to touch up your lips. 
  • There is also a small mirror attached to one side of the product. 
  • It is a completely matte lip stain, so if you are not a fan of matte lip products, you may not really dig it.
  • People complain about this product being very difficult to apply but I didn't really notice. Using a lip liner first definitely helped. Be sure to always moisturize your lips with a good lip balm before applying.
  • Once it has dried on your lips, you can't afford to smack your lips together as this will ruin the whole thing. Make sure to put a generous amount on each lip separately.
  • Taking the lip stain off is a bit of a chore. Even using wipes, you have to tug hard. 
  • The price is very friendly.
