In the mirror of my own experience

Matte lip colors attract me at my first sight, for I'm not a great fan of shimmers or frosty lip colors on my lips. Elf Matte Lip Color was sounded good and I decided to try it out and after my own experience I can say that I got a lovely product which I really love.

Packaging

Elf's matte lip color comes in a black and coral packaging which looks beautiful.Inside the packaging we find a jumbo sized lip pencil with a twist tip to distribute product. This lip pencil comes with a sharpener at the end.Overall it's a exclusive and decent packaging. It's quite light weight and easy to carry out.




Texture

The texture is so creamy and velvety for a matte lipstick which are usually very drying on the lips. I find this great with or without lip balm underneath, but I would always recommend wearing lip balm underneath if you have dry lips.

Pigmentation

Elf's matte lip color in the shade coral offers a great pigmentation and very buildable. You can get the right shade just one or two swipes.


Application

It get's applied very easily & you don't even need a lip liner. It glides on smoothly but takes a little effort to get applied evenly. Like all matte lip products it is best to use on smooth lips, if used on dry/chapped lips product will settle in cracks.


Effect

I love the effect which I get after wearing it every time. It gives a natural and cool effect on my face. I can use it for daily wear. You never feel that you have applied something on your lip after applying it which I love.I applied it with quite dark eye makeup and it gives nude like effect.

Lasting power

It's long lasting too. It lasts for 5 to 6 hours easily on my lips which is good.

Good points

Lovely packaging which is very travel friendly too.
It comes with a sharpener too which is another plus point because sharpening the stick lip color has been really a headache without proper sharpener.
Silky soft texture.
Super pigmented.
Long lasting.
Gives a beautiful soft look to your lips.
Very reasonable price.



Bad points

May settle in cracks if applied on dry or chapped lips.
The name is quite deceptive as this shade is not exactly coral but very close to it.

Finally...

I love this lip color! First of all, I haven't really dry lips so I don't have any problem in using a matte lip color. If you have super dry lips, apply a lip primer, conditioner, or balm underneath for better results. It's super pigmented with creamy and soft texture. I love the coral, which has a little more of nude. It looks gorgeous with a dark or smokey eyes. I love the stick this comes in..Its like a fat pencil, but I can apply it more easily than normal lipstick. Overall, for four dollars you really can't complain. I was actually surprised by how great the shades are for the price point.
