A few months ago I placed an order with elf and only recently remembered that I bought one of their matte lip colors in 'Tea Rose' I honestly have the memory of a 90 year old!! (I put my glasses down and spend the next 20 minutes trying to remember where I put them.......woooo I have bad eye sight too, what a catch ;p)
Anyway, since 'finding' this product I've worn it ever since and have to say, I'm a loving it quite a lot.
The shade is right up my street, it's pretty much a muted rose mauve kinda colour which is what I seem to buy all of the time.
I've mentioned before that I've always been a little wary of wearing matte lip products as some I've used in the past have been drying. However this one chose to prove me wrong.....again.
I found the application of this smooth and creamy and it didn't pull on my lips as I thought it would (Yey for no premature wrinkles) and it felt pretty moisturising too which surprised me because it's a matte product.
(Please excuse the paleness.....hello Dracula :p)
I'd say I got a good 2 and a half hours great pigmentation out of this before it started to fade. However the faded colour just looked like a 'my lips but better' shade which I actually really liked just as much as the mauve when I first applied.
Again, as the hours ticked by it didn't dry out in the slightest bit and actually left my lips moisturised as when I first applied. I'm really impressed with this and definitely think I'll be buying more shades when I place another elf order.
Quick round up:
Super matte, moisturising and extremely pigmented. It does wear off slightly after around 2 to 2 and a half hours, but still leaves a decent amount of product behind. Not at all drying and a gorgeous neutral shade to suit all.
