Sleek LASH OUT Mascara Review

Sleek are known and loved for their incredible eyeshadow palettes and gorgeous pout paints and lippies, but they haven’t really stood out because of their mascaras in the past… but this is soon going to change!  Sleek have just released their new mascara ‘LASH OUT’, which I have been using religiously for the past two weeks and I’ve got to say, I’m really impressed.

Read on for swatches and to find out what I really think about it!

The mascara comes in a bright pink tube which looks very cute in my makeup bag.  The wand is thin and quite long and the nylon bristles wrap around the wand in a spiral shape which I really like as I feel like it reaches every lash.  The end of the wand is quite thin which allows you to reach into inner corners without lots of mess and smudges!

BARE LASHES
SLEEKWITHOUT 
My bare, non existent lashes.  My lashes are quite dark at the base with are really blonde at the tips so they look shorter than they actually are when they are bare.

ONE COAT

One coat instantly lengthens my lashes from root to tip and combs them through gently so that they aren’t clumped.  I’ve been wearing one coat with a natural eye (no eyeshadow) out and about and it makes my lashes look subtly fluttery and feminine.

TWO COATS

Two coats is all you need to accompany a smokey eye – lashes are given more volume and become thicker and more striking.  A second coat also adds darkness to the lashes so they look smouldering.

THREE COATS

I haven’t yet had to pile on three coats of this but I thought I’d show you it on anyway – this is where it starts getting a little clumpy but lashes are still left looking intensely black and full of volume and length.  If you were wearing lots of dark eye shadows anyway then the slight clumpiness of this wouldn’t be too noticeable.

What I think 
Sleek have come up trumps again with this product and have once again confirmed why they are one of my favourite makeup brands on the high street.
I really, really love this mascara.  I love how black the formula is and how much colour it gives my lashes.  I also adore how much it volumizes and lengthens them.  I will normally wear two coats of this which gives the perfect amount of product to my lashes – there is really no need for three coats in my opinion. 
This is really easy to remove with some cleanser and a wet wipe and it doesn’t irritate my eyes.  I also haven’t had ANY transfer of the product on to my eyelids through out the days so far which I am extremely happy about – it doesn’t smudge at all on my eyes.

This retails for £7 on the Sleek stand in Superdrug stores.  I find that mascaras are getting quite expensive at the moment, for examples L’Oreal’s retail at around £10-14 in stores, so I find Sleek’s Lash Out really affordable in comparison.  I will definitely be repurchasing this!

Have you tried Sleek’s LASH OUT mascara?  Which is your favourite lengthening mascara?

  1. It looks pretty damn good for under a tenner!
    Although i don't think any mascara could really beat Diorshow Blackout when it comes to lengthening and volumising!

  2. It sounds great that it hasn't smudged on you - one of my pet peeves is mascara smudging! One or two coats of this mascara on your eye are perfect, it does look to give really good length. :) x

    1. That's one of my biggest hates too! Seeing that you've been walking around with mascara smudges under your brow bone half way through the day is the worst! x

  9. Glad I found this, since finding out maybelline are owned by l'oreal and test on animals I need to find a new mascara for my thin bottom lashes. This looks ideal for me, thanks for reviewing :-)
