Review: ELF Mineral Lipstick
What ELF says:
Now you can hydrate your lips and get a lasting soft color naturally! This nourishing blend of exotic oils, natural waxes, vitamins and plant extracts create the perfect moisturizing formula. The sleek lipstick has superior color payoff, glides easily onto lips, and is long wearing. Lips stay perfectly hydrated and soft throughout the day for no fuss, lip loving happiness. All our mineral makeup is 100% mineral based with no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes.
E.L.F had a promotion code a while with 50% off on all their Mineral line so I took advantage of the sale and got 4 of their lipsticks. E.L.F does a lot of promotion codes so its best to wait for it or you can search around google and most likely you will find one.
First thing I notice was the packaging, I really love the black matte packaging as it gives a more sophisticated look to the product compare to other drugstore brand lipsticks. I like their color selections as it gives a wide range of shades for all skin tones, however selecting a perfect shade off their website would be difficult as their swatches are way off. So its best to do some research and look on other bloggers who post pictures of the real color swathes. The pigmentation is decent, I find myself just a couple of swipes on my lips is enough to matches the color that's on the tube.
E.L.F claims its hydrating as I find it not so much because it still gives some dryness on my lips so with the lipstick always apply a moisturizing lipbalm beforehand.
Overall this is pretty good lipstick but I still stand by NYX round lipsticks as its more pigmented and much cheaper.
Where to buy?: E.L.F website
