elf’s Sheer Slick Lipstick in Black Cherry

I was very much hoping to get a deeper-colored lip tint! Instead, this lip color doesn’t build up or show up nearly as well as the others that I’ve tried. Maybe that’s because it enhances and amplifies one’s own natural lip color rather than adding a layer of color like regular lipsticks do. Still, this shade was a profound disappointment for me. I loved it when I saw it on Tammi Clarke! Some of the other shades in this collection look better on me, and I’ll keep using them. This one, though…I’m still trying to figure out a way to make this work for me. (Maybe it’ll sort of work as a cheek color…)
