Sleek Pout Paint Lip Stains are due to be released soon and just like OCC Lip Tars, the Sleek Pout Paints are made with high intensity pigments and require a tiny drop to cover both lips. They also apply like a gloss and dry down to a semi-matte finish, and can be mixed to create custom colors.
The Sleek Pout Paints come in a slightly longer but slimmer tube, however both contain the same amount of product, .27 Fl OZ.
It is slightly easier and less messy to get out of the tube than OCC Lip Tars, however unless you want to stain your fingers with the pigments, you will need to use a lip brush. Let’s check out some swatches…
Pin Up, Cloud, Peek-a-bloo, Pinkini
As you can see, the pout paints are super pigmented and glossy just like OCC Lip Tars. Now let’s compare them to OCC Lip Tars… Dupe Alert!

Sleek definitely has some dupes of OCC Lip Tars among the Pout Paints. Same pigmentation, same texture and finish, and even some dupes... but what about the ingredients? Here are the ingredients for OCC Lip Tars…

Now I am not sure what all of this stuff is, however I do see natural oils, glycerin and sunscreen in the mix. Pout Paints lack peppermint oil so there is no minty smell or taste, however there is a slight fruity scent. I did not detect any flavor.
How about performance?
OCC Lip Tars last a very long time on the lips and can even survive a meal, however I find them to be very drying and you need to wear a lip balm as a base. The Sleek Pout Paints are also very long lasting on the lips but compared to the lip tars they are a bit moisturizing, probably due to the glycerin content. They did not make my lips chap or peel like the OCC Lip Tars tend to. This is a huge development for this type of lip product in my opinion. Highly pigmented with a small amount, long lasting and non-drying? Hard to come by in a single product. You should still use a lip balm as a base to protect the lips though as the pigments stain, unless that is what you want.
