Simply Lippy Challenge Day 301 | elf Cosmetics Lip Colour in Shade, Tea Rose

I’ve been very excited about the launch of elf Cosmetics, which arrived in Ireland this Autumn. A lot of bloggers I follow have great things to say about the brand, so naturally I’ve been excited to start trying out some of their products.


Of course, my first purchase had to be a lipstick and the one I opted for was this matte lip colour pencil in a soft mauve – rose shade, and I have to say, first impressions are pretty good.


The colour went on a little purple at first, so initially I wasn’t sure about it, but once it dried in, it became much more rose in tone and I ended up really liking it.


The pencil itself is quite thin, thinner than I was expecting, but it actually makes application easier than you’d think. You can line the lips first then build out the colour easily to give a full coverage and its creamy texture makes it blend perfectly. 


The lip colour contains some great ingredients like Vitamin A, E and C to give a very hydrating formula which is moisturising too, and it leaves the lips feeling very soft and smooth when you wear it.


I was surprised by the quality of the lippy especially given the very budget friendly price point, and the staying power was equally as impressive. The colour wore very well throughout the day with no cracking or flaking, and overall I really liked it.


I can definitely see myself wearing this one again. What about you guys, have you tried elf yet?
