Lipstick Love- Elf Matte Lip Color in "Natural"

Before I had won this lipstick, thanks to Christina's (Lovethatlippie) generous Instagram giveaway, I had never even heard of Elf Matte Lip Color. A fairly simple name for a pretty amazing lip product.

Taken from the Elf website- "This convenient jumbo sized lip pencil creates exact colour application with twist up ease so you don't have to sharpen. The pigment rich colour glides on effortlessly and easily to provide long lasting colour."


 I like the simple, yet sleek look of these pencils.


Great blunt, yet small tip. 


A similar consistency to a lip pencil, a soft creamy one.

I love that this lipstick pencil is retractable, I hate sharpening makeup pencils! I wasn't keen on the actual packaging, it just feels loose and cheap, oh dear, not the best explanation, but you get what I mean, right?

Application is easy. Being a pencil means I have more control, and precision is much more achievable, than say a bullet lipstick. 

Even though this lipstick pencil has a matte finish, it does not drag across the lips. I find that it applies smoothly and isn't heavy or too drying.

There is some transfer with the lipstick pencil, however I still felt it had decent longevity.


On its own.

Applied over a lip balm.

Oh, how I love these lip color pencils! I need more shades!

  5. Such a beautiful colour on you!! I agree that they feel a bit flimsy and cheap (I have the colour praline) but I love the product itself!
