[Review]ELF Matte Lip Color

E.L.F is known for their affordable makeup. So when they were having a sale (50% off) for their products, I knew I had to buy! I picked up their Matte Lip Color for only $1.50 which is super affordable, even at regular price they are only $3. The color that I picked up was Praline.

Here is what the product’s packaging looks like. I love how sleek it looks.

Here is what the color looks like. It is a dark brown red color. It reminds me of the “Kylie Jenner” lip color that everyone has been talking about, which I have been hunting very hard for. A really nice fall color.

Here is a swatch of the color and color is more on the pink side than brown.

Here is a picture with the product on my lips. I found that the color was not completely matte and it was a bit drying so I would highly suggest wearing lip balm underneath or else the dry spots get pretty apparent. The color did not show up well in the picture, but it was more apparent in real life, however it was not super pigmented.

Pros

  • Very affordable ($3 at ELF store)
  • A decent range of colors
  • Lasts around 4-5 hours
  • No strange scents to it
  • Applies very smoothly

Cons

  • A bit drying, lip balm is def. needed
  • not super pigmented

Overall, I would repurchase this product, since it is so affordable and there is a good amount of colors. I love how smoothly it applies and for such an affordable price, I will def. be buying more colors.
