I am back with another review for you all. Today, I am going to review the shade Cranberry from e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Color range, as promised. I am totally in love with this shade. It’s a dark shade, which makes my complexion appear fairer and I am really happy about it.
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.

My Experience with e.l.f. Studio Cranberry Matte Lip Color:
The first look of this lip shade made me fell in love with it. As soon as I received it, I swatched it on my hand and I was like, “What a beauty e.l.f. has created!” Accidentally, the color-coded part of this lip color came off and then I realized that it actually didn’t break. It actually is a sharpener! This is like a bonus deal for me now. The lip color comes in a conveniently sized twistable form, which is easy to handle. It is a sleek pen shaped lipstick with a pointed tip to apply the lip color very precisely. The best part is that it does not require a lip pencil for outlining!
The black colored crayon has a color-coded bottom which can easily be taken off and used as a sharpener, as I mentioned above. The name of the brand is engraved in silver and the shade is mentioned on a sticker at the base. All the important information about this lip color are mentioned on the outer black casing as usual.
The shade is a beautiful deep-red cranberry. After a long time I have deviated from my usual pinks! The dark color makes you look fairer and brightens up the face instantly. The lipstick has a satiny soft texture making it easy to spread on lips. It is a matte shade with no shimmer particles, but gives a mild shine to the lips. The formula is not at all drying and it does not tug upon application.
The color pigmentation is good and just one swipe is required for complete coverage. The dark color hides all the imperfections and fine lines on the lips. It is a saturated opaque shade, which leaves a beautiful stain even after it is removed. It is a lightweight lip color. The staying power is approximately 4-5 hours with mild meals and drinks in between.
Pros of e.l.f. Studio Cranberry Matte Lip Color:
• Sleek sturdy travel friendly packaging
• Accompanied with a sharpener
• Pointed tip makes application easier
• No lip pencil required
• Dark opaque color
• No shimmer
• Smooth finish

Cons of e.l.f. Studio Cranberry Matte Lip Color:
• Availability in India
This is definitely a must-have in your vanity. I would try more shades from this pretty range of colors. Afterall, it is a great budget friendly option.
