I’m sure many of you will know by now that elf Cosmetics finally launched in Ireland a few months back. So far, I’ve managed to try a few of their different lip colour crayons, all of which have been pretty nice. Today however, for something different, I decided to try a shade from their velvet matte range.
You all know how much I love a matte lip, and a cream matte lip is even better so I was very excited to give this a try. All the elf lipsticks I’ve tried up to now have been relatively creamy, but this one is definitely a cut above the others. There is a lovely richness to the formula that is so smooth, making application very easy.
The pigment is bold and strong, and though I wasn’t initially sure about the shade itself, it grew on me during the day and I ended up loving it. It has a rich brown, warm undertone with great colour pay off, and it wore very well throughout the day.
Because of the cream matte finish, the staying power was very good, and though I did need to reapply after lunch, it held up pretty well overall. There is no flakiness with it, and it kept my lips moisturised and soft during the day.
I have been so impressed by these lipsticks given their budget price point, but today’s shade is definitely my favourite so far. I’ve yet to try any of their other products, but given how much I like these, I’m excited to try some out.
As always, I’ll keep you posted! In the meantime, if you’ve tried any elf products then I’d love to hear your thoughts.
