e.l.f. Matte Red Lip Review

e.l.f.makeup reviewThe Pros of This Product:

I really like this shade of red and the undertones they used. I got the color rich red. The price of this product was really good, it only costs $3. It takes a bit to dry, but once it does it has a nice matte finish. The shape and size makes it easier to be precise while applying it.

The Cons:

It stained my skin and after two days the spot where I did the swatch was still slightly pink. It also smears really easily, which makes it slightly difficult to apply. I used concealer to clean up the edges and it looked much better. It unfortunately doesn’t last very long and I ended having to reapply it throughout the day. The pigmentation isn’t terrible, but I did have to go over my lips a few times before the color looked red instead of pink. I used it for a photoshoot I did and it looked great, it just didn’t work for everyday wear. It also failed the food test. As soon as I took one bit the lipstick came off, however it did stay on while I was drinking through a straw.

I have used worse products, but I don’t plan on repurchasing this one. For me the cons outweigh the pros. I do want to try out one of the other shades to see if I get the same results. Have you tried this product? If you have what do you think about it?


I hope you found this post helpful x

    I’ll have to try them as a base. Thank you!

    I have a few colors of these, and I typically use them as a base layer to other lipsticks. Sometimes I will use them on their own if I’m only going out of the house for a short period of time!
