ELF Studio Matte Lip Colour: ELF (£3.50)

I was expecting a really different shade from this one after looking at the ELF swatches. I always think they are way off but in the photo this one looks like a bright pink coral similar to Topshop Coy Lipstick or even Nars Bolereo. Its a different coral to what I'd personally call a coral. While it is a corally colour,  in my mind I see more pinky corals, Where as this is much more of a creamy nude peachy coral. On me, It actually reminds me a little of MAC Shy Girl without the creaminess and less nude. I am quite tanned at the moment which is probably why its looking more nude on me than it would someone a bit paler.

The ELF Matte Lip Colours are packaged like chunky lip liners, they come it twist up applicators and have a pencil sharpener in the bottom. The packaging is sleek and simple which is ok, they do feel a bit on the cheap side though. The Matte Lip Colour apply easily, although they do drag a little because the formula is matte and stiff. The coverage is very good and I'd say its a pigmented product, My natural lips are very dark and it makes them look a lot lighter.

Like all matte lipsticks its probably not suitable for anyone with dry lips as it will highlight any imperfections or lines. Despite this I think it's a pretty good product actually, Its not one for everybody though as I can see a lot of people not liking it. But if you're a matte lipstick lover with smooth lips I'd recommend trying this out!
