REVIEW | Sleek MakeUP Lash Out Mascara

REVIEW | Sleek MakeUP Lash Out Mascara

With it’s intense carbon black formulation, Lash Out volumizes and lengthens lashes to maximum effect! The spiral nylon brush captures each and every lash, ensuring that lashes are evenly coated with no signs of clumping.  The narrow wand reaches in to inner corners for a precise and defined finish from root to tip.
For best results hold the mascara wand at the base of your lashes and wiggle the brush from side to side pulling the brush through as you go.

The Sleek MakeUP Lash Out Mascara is priced at $10.49 for 11 ml/0.37 oz of product. 

The price of this mascara is between that of US drugstore brands and low-mid-end brands on the market. A typical US drugstore mascara will cost upwards of $8.99 while low-mid-end brand mascaras start at $15. The amount of product also waivers in the middle when compared to other mascaras on the market.

These are considered drugstore makeup in the UK....our equivalent of say Covergirl or L'Oreal. The prices are comparable to our (cheaper) drugstore brands such as Covergirl and L'Oreal which is awesome if you ask me!

Now of course we have to factor in the shipping because these products are not available in the US (as yet...rumors are they are coming to the US very soon) and you will need to pay for international shipping. Honestly I don't think the shipping is outlandish either since they are coming from the UK after all. Now obviously the more products you purchase the better the deal will be since the $13.50 shipping cost covers the entire purchase. Plus you can combine your order with friends to break up the shipping costs.

The price overall maybe a touch higher than the US version of drugstore brands but still cheaper than low-mid-end brands. You get a lot of product for the price and the quality rivals that of high-end brands. I went ahead and picked up 2 more of these mascaras with $10 shipping - $15.49 each final price. Not too bad for a great mascara!


The Sleek MakeUP Lash Out Mascara is available in the UK at Superdrug Stores but for beauty lovers in the USA we are only able to order this mascara from the Sleek MakeUP website. However, there are plans to supply Sleek MakeUP in US Sephora stores very soon so be on the lookout for that!


The Sleek MakeUP Lash Out Mascara comes in a neon pink tapered tube with the product details embossed in black print. The bright pink makes the mascara standout from the crowd but this may come off as tacky to some who are more on the conservative side. I personally love the fun, bright packaging.

The Sleek MakeUP Lash Out Mascara sports a narrow nylon bristle brush. There is no excess bulk here which small eyes and wimpy lashes will be quite happy about. The bristles are short and compact and holds a decent amount of product - enough to coat both sets of lashes once without re-dipping. I also like that the bristles are not spiky and sharp which makes for a much more comfortable application.

The Sleek MakeUP Lash Out Mascara is an intensely black and creamy non-waterproof formula. I really like the rich black color the mascara offers - not for the tame of heart or the ultra-natural look at all. The formula is creamy and relatively thick so there will be no runny mess to deal with.
The Sleek MakeUP Lash Out Mascara is very simple to apply as with any other mascara. There is a huge plus due to the size of the brush provided with this mascara. The small brush allows for perfect application to even the shortest, tiniest eyelashes. You are able to get to the tricky inner eyelashes as well as the lower eyelashes with no problems. The product itself is richly black and creamy which feels quite comfortable on the
eyelashes. There can be minor clumping from this mascara when multiple coats are applied but the lashes are easily separated with the brush or a separate lash comb/brush.

The Sleek MakeUP Lash Out Mascara is a very comfortable mascara to wear since it's lightweight and soft to the touch. I get a full day's wear from the mascara (8+ hours) without any signs of smudging or flaking.
The mascara can cause the lashes to clump together at the end of about 8 hours of wear if you squeeze your lashes together...not sure who would do this but I did it as a test. And although the formula isn't waterproof, I still didn't have any issues with the mascara 'running' from a little sweat, couple of tears and a slight mist.

I do absolutely love the results of this mascara. It gives a rich black look to my lashes while lengthening and volumizing them.The formula is not the most volumizing I have ever used but it does add a bit of drama to the lashes. I get full dark eyelashes without having spiky, clumpy, stiff eyelashes to contend with. There is also no flaking which I absolutely look for...unless you want that slept-in makeup look of rock-star fame (no thanks!).

The Sleek MakeUP Lash Out Mascara removes relatively easily with soap and water. You may need to do a double-wash to remove all the residue because the formula is quite pigmented and black. However, there is no need to use a oil-based, waterproof strength makeup remover to get this mascara off your lashes. The removal process does not require excessive rubbing or soaking which can be the case with a lot of mascaras. What I love is that it simply washes away rather than flake and crumble like some unfortunate mascaras can do...not fun to get mascara flakes in your eyes!

The Sleek MakeUP Lash Out Mascara was definitely a surprise for me. The formula is a rich pigmented black that adds volume and length for a extreme daytime look. I love the results of this mascara and how it wears throughout the day. Plus it removes really easily without breaking and pulling on the lashes. The brush is perfect for applying product to the lashes - the small size allows for even the tiniest inner lashes to be coated in mascara. It is also great for the lower lashes. I love this mascara and I recommend it for those of us who are seeking a great daily mascara with a bit of added drama!

Have you tried this mascara? Interested in trying it?
