Elf Matte Lip Color in Nearly Nude and Tea Rose

I first discovered the Elf Matte Lip Colors earlier this year. I fully reviewed the shade Rich Red, here, which is still a favorite of mine. I loved the formula so much, that I decided to get the other two shades! I'm so obsessed with these.. 

 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
  • Hydrating
  • Inexpensive, only $3
  • Convenient packaging
  • Long-Lasting
  • Smooth texture
  • The finish isn't really a traditional matte/more creamy 
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?

  1. These look really nice! They don't look really matte, which is great for me, as I think matte lipsticks can look a little flat! Such a great price too. Great review!

  2. These look so nice! I might try these out. thanks for sharing!


  3. Tea rose looks so perfect for me :-) I got one of these a few years ago can't remember what shade it was but as soon as I tried to use it the first time it broke in Hal and the remainder somehow got stuck inside the pen and wouldn't come out, so it puts me off these now but I still love the look of them :) x

  4. I love Tea Rose! They're cheap and work really well, I want to get the Rich Red one now.

  10. These look really nice! Our local ELF doesn't have all of the nifty products like this so I have to look online. I looove Tea Rose!

  11. I just discovered your blog and I have been watching videos/reviews all day! I have the ELF matte lip pencil in natural and I wear it all the time. I might have to pick up Tea Rose!
