Things I love about the Elf Matte Lip Color in Rich Red :
- It’s really pigmented.
- Great staying power. It lasted me six hours without reapplying and I ate a lot within that six hours, I also drank a lot of water that time without using straw. Even when it fades, it leaves my lips a nice stain which looks really good. 🙂
- It is really matte. I love that it’s actually a matte lip color. I already bought too many “matte lipsticks” which claims they are matte but when you actually try it on, it’s not matte at all, or it’s not completely matte. I hate it when that happens, such a waste of money. 🙁
Things I don’t like about the Elf Matte Lip Color in Rich Red:
- The packaging. The packaging is flimsy and feels very cheap to touch. I think I’m just getting what I paid for, maybe they cut back on packaging so that they can offer this at a very low price.
- It can be quite drying. The description says it will hydrate and moisturize your lips but I don’t think it does any moisturizing. If you don’t use a balm before putting this on your lips, you could expect chapped lips after a few hours.
