Review for: Berry Bordeaux more...
This lipstick has a comfortable matte finish that still leaves your lips feeling moisturizing. The Berry Bordeaux is a very deep beautiful wine color that comes in a sleek black tube that shows the shade in the very bottom. This shade is very pigmented so it’s best to use a light hand and build up the shade as you go. It applies smooth and creamy and doesn’t feel sticky or tacky. The product comes in 8 other shades

▪️Vampy Violet
▪️Dark Brown
▪️Bold Berry
▪️Flirty Flamingo
▪️Fuchsia Fantasy
▪️Ruby Red
▪️Deep Burgundy
▪️Blushing Brown

For such an affordable price I can’t wait to get my hands on the other shades.

Review for: Berry Bordeaux more...
For me, since I’m pretty light with blonde hair and blue eyes I felt tha this lipstick was a little intimidating when I first opened it. The color is... wow... But I took a deep breath, dabbed it on and to my surprise I really liked it. As long as I applied it with a light hand, the color was very flattering. A nice deep berry but not too crazy. Suitable for night time or even certain day looks. It went on smoothly, but I did find it a little drying after a while. And while I needed to reapply after a few hours, that’s the way it is for most lipsticks. (I did not use a lip primer with it, so that could extend the longevity.). I have to say though, for the price you can’t beat it. e.l.f. Cosmetics Velvet Matte Lipstick

Review for: Berry Bordeaux more...
It’s a hate and love relationship with this color and lip line. It gives a traditional lipstick package with the bonus lip stain on the bottom, but I felt it could have been better. I rated this a 3 out of five because of the simple packaging when they could have went above the competitors with their package. The formula is ok but it’s not as long lasting as I would prefer it to be. For a simple night out, sure use this, but for an all day wear be prepared to reapply several times with the chance of it creasing and building up.

Review for: Blushing Brown more...
I give it a 3 star rating because the color is beyond beautiful and it was one of my favorite matte lip looks but I did have trouble with the sticky feeling in the beginning. I would definitely use this product again but I'd personally avoid applying a light touch of lip balm although it would help avoid the look of chapped lips because that was the sticky feeling I was getting. I know! Chapped lips > sticky feeling of lips? Yes. It gets irritating and it causes the product to be easily removed throughout the use.

Review for: Blushing Brown more...
This is an amazing product it’s one of my favorite lipsticks not to mention the elf is one of my favorite all-time brands even though I have tried many expensive ones I feel like out that this is one of the best products elf has made their lipsticks are amazing and consistent quality constantly getting more shades to grow off of I really do recommend this product to beginners it’s not professional quality so if you were a professional make up artist I would stick to brands like Anastasia Beverly Hills and things like Lorac

I love the matte black packaging & the little detachable pot at the bottom to dip your lip brush in if you prefer it that way. The color is beautiful & so is the formula. It tugs at the skin just a tad when applying but that's just me nit picking. The color is super pigmented & opaque. I love how it wears & looks good as it fades. I will rebuy in multiple shades.

Review for: Fuchsia Fantasy more...
The Velvet Matte lipstick by e.l.f. comes in about 10 shades and is by far the Esscence of its name... a matte lipstick that goes on velvety smooth and fine. Its not quick drying and wont stain. It does not last super long like some mattes, yet is moisturizing. I have found that I just barely sprinkle some dusty powder or shadow a top center of bottom lip and ever so gently blot together- it prolongs setting and wear time! e.l.f.

Review for: Ruby Red more...
This is a good lipstick however when you first look at it in the packaging versus when u swatch it it is definitely a little later than how it looks in the packaging and it is not very long lasting however it does have a really good look to it it’s definitely one of the lipsticks that comes with a deeper shade range if you wanted it to be more mad you could use a translucent powder over it and it would also make it a lot more long wearing

Review for: Deep Burgundy more...
Love this product. Love how smooth it applies and how long it lasts to the point where I have to scrub it off the next day. I use this a lot, the color looks great with my skin tone. Pricing was great and it met expectations, love the gel that comes in the bottom. Would buy this again and many other colors as well. Highly recommend to people who want a long lasting, all night, no smear lipstick for a great price.

I bought this at the Dollar Tree. The color is a very pretty bright pink which shows up very well. It doesn't dry as much as I'd like so it transfers a lot but it wears a little longer than you would expect with the transfer. Considering I only paid a dollar for the product I will say I've got what I paid for. If I found a different color in this product for the same price I would be willing to give it another try.
