Review: ELF Luscious Liquid Lipstick

13 Jun

Hello everyone! A review from ELF (eyelipsface.com) and yeah… it was different than what I was expecting.

(L-R: Raspberry, Strawberry, Perfect Pink)

Review: The shades I got are Raspberry (darker mauvy purple based pink), Strawberry (a bright red shade), and Perfect Pink (a bright blue-based pink). This is very similar to a pigmented lipgloss which is alright but from the product title I would have expected it to be a lipstick. It works great as a gloss and is quite pigmented and the color is quite buildable. There is a slight mint scent to this but no plumping sort of feeling is felt on the lips. The color lasts for about 2-3 hours and the color can also work as a stain once the gloss has worn away. The packaging isn’t that great but still works you just have to twist it more than 10 times to get product out at the beginning. A con is the applicator I feel that the sponge actually absorbs the product than places it on your lips and well it’s only available online for Canadians. For Americans you can easily purchase it at a Target store… Canadians = online and online buying can be a hassle especially the wait times. I had to wait about 2 weeks before my package came in and that’s about avergae for any Canadian post parcel mail.

Cost: $1.00USD @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for those interested in trying a product at an extremely low price point.
