Hey native English speakers, when do you use "slick" vs. "sleek", considering how close is their meaning?


@isagalaev “slick” has suggestions of being liquid, perhaps sticky, and might be pejorative if describing a person. “sleek” has suggestions of thinness, perhaps well-kept fur, and is never negative. A conman and his tricks would be slick; a sports car and a mink would be sleek.
