It's seems like such a long time since I've reviewed an ELF product, although I'm sure in reality it's probably only a few weeks! But I do have a bit of an obsession with the brand, and although the better products are generally from the studio line, I decided to pick up one of these lipglosses from the essential line last time I ordered as I was more than a little curious of what they were like!
Being part of the essentials line this lipgloss is a bargainous £1.50. However there is only 1.5g of product in the tube. But for the price, I think I can let that slide! These have a brush applicator to them, with a twist up mechanism that pushes the product into it. It tends to work pretty well, although perhaps not dispensing enough product at once - but that's much better than too much! In total there are 12 colours available.
I'm not usually into sticky glosses, but sometimes I unfortunately come across them. This one being one of them. However this does have one bonus to it - sticky gloss usually last longer on the lips, with this one lasting 3-4 hours on me. Like most lipglosses this has no drying effect on the lips.
Colour & Pigmentation
The colour of this is VERY sheer, which is alright sometimes, but generally for me I like some colour! In the tube this is a nudey mauve shade with some really subtle silver shimmer to it. However not much of this translates to the lips, but it does leave a nice gloss!
The Good - cheap, lots of colours available.
The Not so Good - On the sticky side, small amount of product, quite sheer.
Would I repurchase? Probably not, it was too thick/sticky for my liking.
Price & Availability - £1.50, ELF's Website.
Sometimes I get writers block when it comes to writing this bit of the post! I hope you all have a really great weekend and remember to do at least one fun thing for yourself, even if it's just taking 5 extra minutes in the shower to give yourself a good body scrub! Thanks for stopping by, Hannah
