You may recall a few weeks back, I tried out my first lip product from elf Cosmetics which launched in Ireland at the beginning of Autumn. Given the budget price point of the brand, I was very impressed by the formula and because of that, have been looking forward to trying another.
While the last shade I tried, Tea Rose, was a soft mauve, today’s shade is much more my usual autumnal choice; a gorgeous deep berry shade that I just adore. The tone is rich and the colour is exactly the kind of berry colour that I love.
The lippy is a thin lip pencil, and initially you think it’s more of a liner than lipstick, but as soon as you apply it, it feels like any other lip crayon and blends so easily onto the lips.
The thinner pencil allows you to line the lips first then you can fill in the rest of the lips easily for a very precise, smooth application. The coverage is medium with a satin finish, and the colour pay off is excellent.
Vitamin A, E and C make it very moisturising to wear, and though it’s not to most hydrating lip crayon that I’ve worn, it does leave your lips feeling soft and smooth while you wear it.
The staying power is good, not great, but it wears well and doesn’t crack or dry out on the lips. You will need to reapply this, especially as it’s a bolder shade, but if you don’t mind about longevity then otherwise this is a great bargain buy.
I’ve yet to try any other products from elf, but given how impressed I’ve been with these two lippies, I’m pretty sure I’m going to like some of their other makeup too.
As always I will keep you posted once I try them out!
