You guys are going to get a 2-for-1 tonight! I bought two new e.l.f. Cosmetics lip products and I’ll go ahead and review them both together instead of breaking them up. Let me start by saying I always love e.l.f. products! I’ve tried so so many of them and I have yet to really be disappointed. They’re affordable and don’t compromise on quality. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a little bit of a makeup junkie, so it’s easy for me to buy these products and can still enjoy trying new things without breaking the bank.
Lets begin with the lip product I bought yesterday.
The Matte Wine Lip Color is a little different than I expected. It comes in more of a crayon form and is applied like a lipstick. I guess I expected it to come in a tube that you’d use a stick applicator to apply it with, more like you would a gloss. Because of that I had a little bit of trouble applying it evenly around the edges of my mouth. It took me a few coats to get it looking really clean and even, but once I got it on I really loved it! Although I used several coats of it I didn’t feel super weighed down and cakey. My lips felt smooth and the color was glorious! It isn’t as deep as I thought it would be, but the color still looked beautiful and rich. It was $3!!! Yes, you read that correctly, $3! It truly doesn’t get any more affordable than that! It didn’t smudge really, but I did have to reapply a little after eating dinner. It came off at the end of the night very easily with my Yes To Cucumbers makeup removing wipes. I love this makeup product and definitely will be trying out several of the other 12 shades!
The lip color I got today is one of their new releases, and I was so excited when I found it! I got the Long Lasting Liquid Matte Lipstick in Blushing Rose. It is $5, and TOTALLY worth every penny! Seriously, I have found my new lipstick obsession. It differs from the other lip product in that it’s meant to last a very long time without coming off, so there’s not a lot of reapplying happening throughout the day. I put it on the second I got in the car at 12 o’clock today and I have touched it up once. That’s after eating dinner, going out for ice cream, and drinking water all day long. I was very impressed with how well it stayed on! And the best part is that a little bit goes a long way. I didn’t have to use a lot to where my lips felt cakey and weird. It feels very natural and light, which is important to me. It comes in 11 shades, so there’s a shade for every skin tone! I’m super excited to stock up on some more colors! If you’re looking for a new lipstick to try, this is the one that I’d recommend you get!
Blushing Rose is just the perfect shade I’ve been searching for. I’ve been wanting something a little darker and I love that I’ve found it!
