[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] Despite the name of these new lipsticks from e.l.f., the ‘satin’ is more about the feel than the look – matte lovers, you will be in seventh heaven!
With packaging stripped to basics (there is a cardboard cover but no plastic insert) the money has gone into the bullets and the result is a lipstick that I think in a blind test, you’d be pushed to distinguish from one ten times the £3 price.
I rather like a clear casing – it completely stops the endless pulling off black caps from black tubes to see exactly what you have. The formula feels like a light creme – there isn’t really any scent that I can tell – and finishes as what I’d describe as a lightful matte. So not dead and flat but with a little life to it. I’ve done roughly half a day in one of these (Pepper) and didn’t find it drying. The last was medium – if I wanted to keep a full-on look all day, I’d need to top up a couple of times although the pigment is fierce. But to be honest, I find last to be medium on just about everything. So, perhaps it’s me, sipping Diet Coke through a straw all morning.
From bottom to top: Creme, Taffy, Persimmon, Raspberry, Cocoa and Pepper, although there are ten shades to choose from and a virtual try on facility on their website – or multi-tone lip swatches to see. You can find them for £3 each HERE, non affiliate HERE.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
