I found these little gems on sale for $2.99. Naturally, I purchased five of them. These matte lip crayons have a beautiful, long-lasting formula. I found the lighter colors hold up longer than the dark reds, however, they all work wonderfully on bare lips and under lip balm.
I had no bleeding or feathering but, I did find that my lips were quite dry. The formula was not sticky at all, and there were nominal amounts of transfer. Removal was easy with any oil based product (greasy food), yet the best part is the built-in sharpener. The bottom twists off to reveal a cute little sharpener. Just the perfect thing to ensure perfect lines every time.
As described on the Ulta website:
This convenient jumbo sized e.l.f. Cosmetics Matte Lip Color creates exact color application with twist up ease so you never have to sharpen – but there’s a sharpener at the base just in case! 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. Cruelty free and vegan.

You may want to give this product a pass if:
- You are sensitive to Mineral Oil
- You wish to avoid Parabens
This company is cruelty-free, and the price point is terrific. There is a large quantity of product in each tube, and the sharpener is a totally cool feature. A great buy!
