(A red lip adds instant glam)

An easy way for me to brighten up my face while still rocking minimal makeup is to add a red lipstick. It instantly does the trick if I do not want to wear mascara or blush (as seen in the pictures featured). This is basically my version of a lazy makeup look. A bit of foundation/concealer, finishing powder, eyeliner, and lipstick. This routine is quick and easy and can be achieved in less than ten minutes.

(e.l.f Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Carpet)

The lipstick color I chose to review today is actually two colors layered together to achieve the final result. Both colors are by e.l.f  Cosmetics. I first applied their matte lip pencil in Rich Red. I have reviewed their matte lip pencil before in a previous post (which you can read here) but in a different shade. As I noted before this matte formulation is very moisturizing and it took a while for me to get used to because I usually prefer an ultra matte, but in this case, their formulation worked well for layering since it was not so drying.

After applying the Rich Red matte pencil next I layered on the moisturizing lipstick in Red Carpet. The end result was a beautiful finish that was not too glossy.

It's funny because I have had both of these items for awhile but haven't worn them yet because I own so much makeup. I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to my beauty buys. I usually collect so much that I end up giving a lot away. My friends and family love it because they get brand new products for free. The only reason I decided to give these a try today is because of another blogger who you may be familiar with, the lovely Jalisa from The Style Contour (you can check out her wonderful blog here) wrote a post a few weeks ago about the color red and I had mentioned that when it comes to clothes I haven't found the right shade for me. She suggested that I would look great in a true red or candy apple red so, I decided to test out that theory. The easiest way for me to test it out was to find a true red shade that I already owned and see if it would flatter me. Since I do not own any red clothing I figured makeup would work just as well. I dug through my endless supply of lipsticks and found the perfect red by e.l.f. cosmetics. So, Jalisa, thank you, girl! You were right!!! Lol!

(Pleased to find out that the different formulations worked well together)
Both formulations claim to have long lasting wear. I found that on their own and together you will get about 4-6 hours of use with light snacking, but if you are eating a meal you will most definitely have to reapply. If you are participating in a major makeout session both will rub off on you or your partner so beware they are not great for a major kiss-a-thon.

Cons: Matte formulation is not a true matte meaning it is not as long lasting as most mattes
Pros: Moisturizing, feels great on, rich pigmented color

Final Thoughts
Great lip colors that left lips feeling hydrated. Love that the moisturizing lip color and lip pencil are enriched with Shea and Vitamins A, C, & E. I also was pleasantly surprised that the jumbo lip pencil also has a handy sharpener at the base. Overall I would give both a B+.

  9. Yes, girl!!! Lol! You are looking so beautiful in that red lip, I'm so glad you gave it a try because it really does look beautiful on your skin tone and highlights that gorgeous smile (and PERFECTLY white teeth, haha). I also have to let you know that I really love the new design you did here, it looks so pretty and refreshing; you can really get that artistic vibe from it, which reflects your personality and interests so well! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you're having a wonderful day so far!

    1. I have to give props to you. You really were right about the shade and the right color family for my skin tone. Thank you so much for your wonderful advice!!! It was so hard finding a new blog design that captured my personality and the mood I wanted to convey. After much deliberation I finally settled on this. It's cleaner and simpler but still maintains that artsy vibe that I am going for.
