Most Helpful Positive Review I got this in Ruby Red...
I got this in Ruby Red. Initially I was a little cautious because I've had bad luck with matte lipsticks in the past, but this changed my mind completely. The color stays all day, the lipstick itself applies very smoothly (maybe a little too much!), but it doesn't 'dry' like matte usually does, and has a glossy finish imo. And of course, like most (if not all) matte products, it's difficult to get off...
Most Helpful Critical Review Pretty color and great formula, not matte though
I have blushing brown and it's a great color. The formula is comfortable to wear, and opaque, not streaky. It's definitely just your standard cream finish lipstick though. Also it has a VERY strong sweet taste to it that lingers on your lips even after you take the lipstick off. Which isn't necessarily unpleasant, unless you're trying to eat.

Love this shade though I do feel it doesn't stay very well
Love This Lippie - But discontinued
KekeLoveYou from New York
I love this lipstick. I actually have only bought two shades, but ended up loving the 'Dk. Brown" and used it as an everyday nude. I typically would by 3-5 of these at a time, because I would use them up so quickly, something that has not been the case with any other lipstick that I have owned. It also looked great without a liner, which for some lippies are unheard of.
It dried down well, but wasn't extremely drying which I appreciated. Unfortunately, I have been waiting for it to restock and have had no luck, but reached out to Elf and have been told that it is no longer being made, which really stinks, because the price point on this was affordable and the payoff was great.
Feels like I'm not wearing anything

I normally hate lipstick especially dark colours. I only ever wear gloss. I bought one of these just because I was bored and I am so shocked. It goes on pretty smooth but it is so soft, so thin yet pigmented and honestly I feel like a beauty blogger or Instagram photo ready with just this.

While the lasting power is not as strong as I would hope I love the color pay off and how the lipstick feels. Not drying, works well.
cool look with pale skin

I dont generally wear lipstick but I went a little out of the box with this one and I love it !
Thirtysomething from Texas
Super pigmented for a great bright summer color. The color is a little more cool than it appears in the photo. Lasts hours and you only need one coat. I would buy this again and again. Please make this in more colors!!

This color is a perfect dark purple color that has great quality
My Go-To Dark Lippie!
irishmocha16 from Poughkeepsie, NY
I found the Berry Bordeaux shade at my local drugstore and fell in love! I went back and bought the last three they had! Love that they are cruelty-free and super affordable. The only negative for me was the color transfer if I eat/drink, but even that was minimal. I actually sort of liked the look of that too, because it made a slight ombre effect in the center (I blotted my lips together afterward to re-blend the remaining color). Overall, anytime I want to feel bold and fierce, I swipe this color on and my confidence skyrockets!! Love e.l.f.!

i bought this about a week or so ago and i LOVE the color!! a deep dark purple, not sticky and goes on easy. definitely going to buy more!
Silky and pigmented
magster from undisclosed
I bought this in Deep Burgundy and Vampy Violet. The burgundy was lighter than expected, but they are both still very pigmented. I apply lip balm about half an hour before applying the lipstick, and my lips don't dry out at all. It doesn't stay on very well when eating/drinking, but that's expected especially for the price. I'm definitely buying more shades when they become available!
Good lipstick for the price
Lizzie918 from Kansas City mo
I like elf's lipsticks, they're nice and affordable. I don't expect them to last hours on me but even some expensive ones don't either so.
Love the colour and texture

Love the colour and texture. Definitely worth it for the price
Love the color!
JerseyPeach from Gainesville, GA
I'll admit, I was hesitant to order this color. It looks so dark. But it looks amazing on! I got so many compliments.
It arrived broken, so I have to invest in a lippie brush for application.
The formula was smooth. Matte finish, but didn't make my lips feel dry. Can't wait to order other colors.

The application of this lipstick is smooth, no messy, the pigmentation is amazing.
I like it
Mk17 from Connecticut
I use it all the time, I love the color and the texture is perfect
The colour is not as advertised
kaitlyn573 from Canada
So the colour looks completely different in real life. I ordered "Deep burgundy" and it is more of a Berry-Pink colour. Other than that the lipstick is OK. I found it very hydrating and highly pigmented. It does not set or dry down so it is VERY transferable. because it transfers so easily I wouldn't use it on a regular day. Probably just for an event. Also I found it spreads a little so definitely usE with a wax based liner.
Smooth coverage, easy to smudge/rub off
katlea from undisclosed
I got a few different colours of this lipstick and although it has great lip coverage, is very smooth and tastes good if some gets along your tongue, this lipstick is very easy to smudge and doesn't stick to your lips. I've had to pat down a tissue on my lips a few times just to make sure to get some access, but still afterwards I would rub my finger or itch it, etc and there would be a huge smudge along my hand or finger. Even after good patting it still will come off easily, and on everything so be careful about touching your lips then something else. Although this can be good for some situations, for others when you want it to last longer or not get everywhere you can get a little cautious
RaeCoop from Buckroe, Va
I am so confused by a lot of the bad reviews. I am never able to find a shade of lipstick that I don't have to remix. I didn't even have to add gloss to this because it is a matte lipstick. I lined my lips with the Deep Berry lip liner, put on one coat the Vampy Violet and I am in love with the results!!
KMK1701 from PNW
Very affordable and great color options. Berry Bordeaux definitely is my new favorite, beats out Milani Black Cherry.
My New Favorite Color!
Batauvich from Ponca City
This color is amazing! My normal makeup colors are nude/natural colored and Blushing Brown hit all my requirements. It is a complimentary color on an empty face and can be dressed up with full face. Love that it is easily applied, feels moisturizing and still has a perfect matte finish.
ArtemisHi from Seattle, WA
This is one of the smoothest, softest bullets I've ever used. It slid on like a dream- no waxiness whatsoever. It's a startingly dark purple, even with one thin coat. The deal-breaker for me is that it melted off my lips. I've never had that happen before, so I'm not sure what caused that, but it actually slid right outside my lips on both top and bottom (I didn't eat or drink anything) within about 2 hours.
I thought I was gonna like the color but I did not like it.

the color didn't look right.
Cloeo2020 from New Jersey
I love that this lip stick is moisturing, dark but at the same time it gives this nice medium matte finish to glow. Love it
