The two shades I chose are Nearly Nude and Tea Rose
The packaging is a sleek black tube, with a color swatch on the bottom, which is also a sharpener!
On the left is Nearly Nude and the right is Tea Rose. Nearly Nude is a warm beige and Tea Rose is a dusty mauve. Both have a slightly creamy matte finish, it's not completely matte.
If you would like to see what these look like on my lips, please watch my Elf haul video, here.
Claims: "This convenient jumbo sized lip pencil creates exact color application with twist up ease so you never have to sharpen. The pigment rich color glides on effortlessly and easily to provide long lasting matte color. The enriched Vitamin A, C & E formula moisturizes and hydrates lips for beautiful healthy looking lips."
Pigmentation: These are both very pigmented! You only need one swipe to get full color.
Finish/Texture: Like I said before, the finish on these is like a creamy matte. It isn't completely matte, but I still think it's pretty and comfortable on the lips. The texture is super smooth, and it applies like a dream.
Lasting Power: I had about 5 hours of wear with these.
Scent: These are unscented.
Packaging: The packaging is really convenient. I love that there's a built in sharpener and a color swatch on the bottom.
Price: I paid $3 each at Wal-Mart
- Very pigmented
- Inexpensive, only $3

I'm so happy that I finally bought more of these. They are one of my favorite Elf products of all time. I love that the formula feels light, hydrating, and creamy. It lasts throughout most of my day, and the pigmentation is amazing. I love that they are unscented and only three dollars! The packaging is really convenient too, since it has a built in sharpener.
I seriously wish Elf would make more colors, I'd love to see some brights! Have you tried these yet?
