As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I recently ordered a few lipsticks from ELF and today, I am reviewing the ELF Studio Matte Lip color in the shade “Dash of Pink.” Read on to find out more.
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 and E formula moisturizes and hydrates lips for beautiful healthy looking lips.
My Experience with ELF Studio Dash of Pink Matte Lip Color:
Packaging: This lipstick comes in a slender twistable pen format. The black pen format looks quite chic and feels sturdy. It surely does not give you a feel that you are holding a $3 lip product. A colored band at the bottom coincides with the color of the lip product inside.
The lip product is retractable and you don’t need to bother about a sharpener. However, the product does not swivel down completely and the tip remains slightly exposed.
The tip of the lip pen is oval shaped and that makes the application precise, especially around the corners of the lips or the cupid’s bow. The cap shuts tight and you can surely toss this around in your bag.
Shade/Pigmentation: The shade “Dash of Pink,” as the name suggests is a Barbie pink color. It is a blue-based pink and hence will not suit all skin tones, but it is a nice girly shade to own. The lip pen is decently pigmented but since this is a light color, I do need to swipe it twice to cover my pigmented lips. Swiping it multiple times leads to slight clumping and it does not look very flattering.
Texture/Finish/Lasting Power: The texture of the lip pen is quite creamy. It applies smoothly on the lips and does not tug at all. Even though this is a matte lipstick, the finish is not the dry, flat matte finish. Instead, it is a lovely matte with a slight sheen.
It does not accentuate any lip lines and does not feel drying on the lips. Though, it always helps to have well-moisturized lips any way.
The staying power of the lipstick is around 4 hours. It transfers a bit but still survives light meals and snacking.

Yes, you can surely try this lip pencil if you think you can rock this shade. You will not go wrong much for 3 dollars. I already have a few other shades from this range; don’t think I will repurchase the same shade.
