REVIEW & SWATCHES: e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Colors in Cranberry, Fuchsia, Wine

Last week, I told you how glad I was that dark lipstick is back for fall. It’s one of my favorite fall makeup trends that I wish would last all year. e.l.f. is fueling my obsession with deep lips with their three new shades of the Studio Matte Lip Colors.


The Matte Lip Colors are twist-up crayon style lipsticks that come to a small point, making precise application easy. The three new shades are Cranberry, Fuchsia, and Wine.

REVIEW & SWATCHES: e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Colors in WineWine is a deep red with a hint of berry tone.

All of the shades have cool undertones, so they make the teeth look super white!

Since the lip colors have a matte formula, they take a bit of warming up to get a creamy application. With that being said, they do not dry down to be the traditionally uncomfortable, dry matte finish. Rather, once these set, it’s hard to remember you have applied anything to your lips at all! They almost imitate a natural lip texture and finish— not dry, but not quite moisturized either. They also have a bit of sheen to them. I prefer to apply over a balm for maximum comfort throughout the day.

The color is buildable, and can last up to 4 hours with minimal fading before eating. They re-apply and layer easily throughout the day as well.

I think these shades are great as we move towards the end of the year (and Fuchsia will certainly be worn through next spring!). The comfortable formula is great for when it starts getting colder, since it doesn’t dry out your lips.

The e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Colors are only $3.00 and come in 9 different shades. Check out my thoughts on some of e.l.f.’s other new products in this video.

What has been your favorite fall release from e.l.f. thus far?



  1. I just ordered these online from ELF during their half- off Fall Favorites sale. So glad to see them add some darker colors to the line. Looks like Cranberry might be my fave!

  2. Gorgeous! I’d definitely like to try Wine and Cranberry but the Florida girl that I am could not pass up that Fuchsia either.

  3. These totally remind me of the bite lip pencils that I have waiting for me to review. Naughty blogger 🙂 I should pick some of these up though, fantastic value.

  4. These shades a AMAZING!!! I am a fan of the Matte Lip Colors so far- the pink one is awesome. Like the perfect pinky nude. The Cranberry and Wine shades look like i NEED them NOW.
