I'm not sure what it is about a matte lip that I find so appealing, but this is a trend that I sense will be around for a long time to come. e.l.f. recently came out with this range of six lovely shades with a perfectly matte finish - and of course I picked them all up. At only $3 a piece, owning the full collection is beyond achievable.
Left to Right: Coral, Natural, Tea Rose, Praline, Nearly Nude, and Rich Red.
I love the packaging. The matte black is sleek and simple. My only complaint is that the caps are sometimes a struggle to get to close completely. The colors on the ends are pretty close to the real colors, although they differ quite a bit from the swatches on eyeslipsface.com. I've included my own swatches below!
My favorite color lately is Tea Rose. Praline is a close second for me, but unfortunately Coral, Natural, and Nearly Nude are all too light for me. Keep that in mind as you choose your colors. Today I used Hard Candy's Automatic Lip Liner in Natural to line my lips. I'm wearing Tea Rose matte today, but this color also looks great under a gloss.
Have you tried any of the Matte Lip Colors? If so, which one is your favorite?
