I have taken some time to test out Elf's Matte lipstick and it performs extremely well! In using this lipstick for the past month, I can now accurately share my experience.
The color that I chose was Berry Sorbet. For the three dollars that I spent on it, I have to say that I didn't expect very much. But, I have used other elf products and I have been very happy with them, so it was worth a shot.
The color was so vibrant and rich. It went on very smoothly. It is not a dull matte and it didn't dry out my lips either. Because of the shape, I was able to use it to line my lips before filling them in. That was definitely an added bonus.
Now, this is not a lip stain, so it will transfer to things like napkins, but I knew that going into this. As far as the transfer, it wasn't bad when it came to things like glasses and cups. It did leave a little mark, but not some huge layer that ends up smearing your lipstick on the second sip.
Overall, I would say that this lipstick performs well when dining. The color is true and it lasts for quite some time, even with the mild transferring. And, for a few dollars, you really can't beat the price. I look forward to reviewing more products in the future.
I would love to hear your experiences with Elf lipsticks, so please comment below and share your photos on Twitter using #alacuisinellc.
