My lip colour obsession grows with one of my latest purchases of the Elf Matte Lip Colour in the shade "Coral". I bought it as part of my Elf haul last week and have a series of Elf reviews coming up for you all.
I seem to wear lipstick every day, and it has got to the point where I feel naked without it on!
(I need help, I know...)
I picked this up as I do not actually have anything like it in my growing stash and I have never worn a matte shade. This is my first lip crayon and I am finding myself reaching for it almost every day!
I love the packaging of the lip pen, it is from the Studio range and looks very professional.
It is very sleek and has a colour tab on the bottom to show you the shade without opening it up, which is very handy if you have more than one of the lip pens!
The lip crayon twists up easily and feels sturdy in the packaging so you do not have to worry about breakage. The applicator is like a pen so it's easy to apply even without a mirror. I find the best way to apply this is to blend in a layer at a time to build up colour to the intensity you like. It has vitamins A, C and E in which moisturise and hydrate lips, an added bonus.
The colour is truly matte and I actually really like it, it surprised me how easy to wear it is and that it is very natural. I apply a small amount of lip balm underneath so that it does not dry my lips out. It lasts a very long time and I do not need to reapply as often as I do with sheen finish shades.
The colour is extremely flattering and I could wear it during the day for a natural look or on a night out with a smoky eye look. It is a gorgeous peach coral shade and I think it suits my pale skin tone.
I really recommend these and it is a great product from Elf for the cheap price of £3.75, there are also five other shades available so there is one for everybody. I must add that I dropped it once and the end did break off so do be careful with it!

Have you tried any of these lip pens or a matte lipstick at all?
