MATTE IT OUT!

      34

Over the last few months, I have sầu built such a collection of lipsticks and lip colors that I find it difficult lớn use all of them, since I find myself reaching for a few every time. This was one of those forgotten shades that I discovered again while cleaning up, and thought lớn use it, & review it too for you guys.

So, this matte lip color comes in a pencil khung, which is in a twist-up packaging, which makes it easier to use. Also, I hate sharpening products, so I lượt thích this packaging. The outside of this pencil has a matte black appearance, and a strip of color identifies what shade it is. The good thing is that the cap clicks shut tightly, a little too tightly perhaps, but it never falls off, like some lip liner or eyeliner caps bởi.

My Take on ELF Matte Lip màu sắc in Praline:

I wanted khổng lồ buy “Rich Red,” but it was sold out, và I figured I already had too many matte red lipsticks, so why not try something new? So, I decided to go with what appeared to be a brownish nude shade called Praline. Matte lipsticks are my favourite texture of lipsticks. Yes, they are too drying, but they don’t stiông chồng to lớn your hair that falls on your face (which my hair tends to bởi vì a lot!) & they stay longer, and they are more pigmented, và don’t get transferred as easily as other lipsticks.

Starting off, Praline is very nude, a little too light for my liking actually. I thought it would be more brown, from the trang web. This shade would suit pale people, và even medium skin tones might find it difficult lớn carry, especially on days that your skin is looking dull. This does nothing to brighten up your face whatsoever. On good skin days, I can barely pull it off using some heavier eye makeup, & some blush – very Kyên Kardashian, but on worse skin days, this completely washes me out. As if I have applied concealer khổng lồ my lips. The only way I can look okay with this shade is when I apply a tinted lip balm on top – lượt thích a red lip balm, which makes the color appear lớn be nude pink, which looks nice.

The texture is matte, and drying. Although it applies very easily on lips & does not tug at all. It claims to have vitamins for hydrating but frankly, I couldn’t tell. It accentuates dryness if your lips aren’t perfect. Lip balm is a must underneath. If you have sầu tried Chambor Powder Matte, I would say they are less drying than this one.

Now, coming to the worst thing – the smell. This has the same smell as the Hard Candy concealer which I reviewed here. It smells of mineral oil and some petroleum sản phẩm, và I don’t know if it’s just me, but I find this smell horrible. When you use this lipstichồng, as long as you’re wearing it, the smell keeps wafting up your nose, & I couldn’t wait khổng lồ take it off, but for the purposes of the đánh giá, I wore those until it faded – which was after a meal. Before that, it held for about 3.5 hours. I didn’t want to lớn reapply at all. Maybe someone with a nose less sensitive than this can bear it, but I couldn’t.
