e.l.f. Lipsticks

There are six shades of this available on the UK site and I have all six. There are six lovely new shades on the e.l.f. US website and I am just gagging to get my hands on these! 

What e.l.f. promise:
Indulge your lips with long lasting color and shine. The moisture rich formula hydrates, conditions and softens on contact for silky smooth lips.

 (Ok the packaging is not the most glamorous but don't judge a book by the cover!)
 (L-R: Gypsy, Voodoo, Classy, Fantasy, Seductive, Posh- little windows between base and cap to see colours- VERY handy!)

Packaging:
Ok as I have already alluded to, the packaging of these isn't really the sexiest- silver plastic, pretty basic but whatever. They have little windows where you can easily see which one is which without having to take off all the tops or squint at the stickers on the bottom, and I big time appreciate this, it's the little things! They twist up and all of mine have been very sturdy and secure, twisting right back down again. The lipsticks themselves are almost 8 cm long with 4cm of product even though at least 1 of those cms is dead weight because it would be impossible to get at it unless you scraped it out, but anyway, for just $1/£1.50/€1.70 you get a decent amount of quality product.

Product:
I absolutely adore four of these lipsticks (Gypsy- hot fuchsia pink, Classy- dark pink, Seductive- light red and Posh- deep red), one I am not so keen on (Voodoo, kinda reddy brown) and one I know I will never ever wear because I just don't like the colour at all at all (Fantasy- like a milk chocolately brown colour, should have known it wouldn't be for me but I loved the others so much I said I would try it and it was only like 85c because there was a 50% off sale at the time). These lipsticks are seriously unreal- they are so creamy but they stay put, lightweight but not sticky but not sheer, so pigmented, they last for hours and they don't bleed or slip off your lips. They feel really moisturising and creamy on, not at all drying, I usually put on a teeny bit of Vaseline before these just as a little base and it works perfectly. The colours are really amazing- Gypsy in particular garners loads of compliments and my favourite is Posh because it is just such a beautiful strong shade of red and I love a strong red lip and it is my favourite shade of red ever ever. 

Verdict:
The colours that I have and love, well I absolutely adore them, definitely one of my top e.l.f. products. I will keep repurchasing these and as soon as the new colours from the US site arrive, I am going to pick those ones up too.

Star rating:
*****
Easily five stars, amongst my favouritist e.l.f. products ever.

Hope this helps xxx
