Review: ELF Matte Lip Color in Rich Red

An effortless way to look pulled together is to wear red lipstick. This has been mentioned ad nauseam by many fashion magazines. Although, I never really had the guts to do this since I've always stuck to shades of beige, peach and the occasional pink.

But then again, since I'm pushing my boundaries this year, I got myself a tube of red lip color just for the heck of it. So, I purchased ELF's Matte Lip Color in Rich Red. It costs Php 249.99 and looks like a retractable lip liner. 

This is how it looked like when I put it on, here's me and the boyfriend:

Not PBB Teens, sorry that's jologs. Peachy and Wacks from TGIS. HAHA!

This was taken before having any meals. Now here's another swatch after drinking and eating post-class. Oh and that monkey with its' eyes popping out? That's Unggoy-kun, my pen who drives everyone in my Nihongo class crazy. LOL.

Here's my take on this product so far: 

  • Reasonable price (hey, I just noticed most of my makeup are from ELF recently)
  • Non-drying (although I still use lip balm out of habit)
  • Wonderful punch of color (compliments my skin tone) without making me look like a drag queen
  • Sleek packaging, so whether you're hauling a backpack or strutting around with your most ferosha clutch bag, it'll fit right in.
And some random shots during the weekend:

Lunch at Cajun Red Rock. This one is the boyfriend's meal - Parmesan-crusted Calamari,  the one in the back is my order: Cajun Fried Chicken.
