ELF studio lip stain swatch and review

5 years ago

<strong>Elf`s Product description</strong>:
"Achieve full coverage that lasts for hours with this long-wear formula. Enjoy silky matte color or layer on the moisturizing clear gloss for a shiny look. With key Vitamins A & E your lips stay smooth all day long. "

These lip stains come in a duo end applicator with a black plastic middle core for both the side to screw back together. The applicators are just the traditional doe foot applicator which are decent quality but they are kind of hard to work with.

<strong>Color pigmentation/ pay off</strong>:
Depending on the color of your lips, these lip stains are really nice and pigmented. The problem I have with these are the formulation but I will talk that in the next section.

<strong>First date</strong>: dark pink coral with a little bit of shimmer but ends up matte in the end
<strong>Birthday suit</strong>: Hot highlighter pink; matte finish
<strong>Heartbreaker</strong>: Peachy brown nude; matte finish
<strong>Mysterious</strong>: Mauve brown; matte finish

<strong>Texture/ finish </strong>:
In my opinon, these dry really werid. At first when applied to the lip, these feel oily but then it will dry to a matte finish. But even though it dries, it still feels stinky but dry. I know this makes no sense but its really drying to the lips. Its also really streaky so you have to use your finger to dab to make more smooth looking. These also gets into every dry patch on the lips so you really have to exfoliate and moisturize your lips. Although I do like the colors, these just don`t cut it for me.

These also comes with a clear lip gloss but it is really thin and doesn`t really work for me. It just feels really cheap >_< and doesn`t moisturize.

This product has a really werid smell. Although it isn`t really strong, there is a faint smell of new car leather. After a while you do get use to it but its a good thing to know right ;).

<strong>Lasting power</strong>
These last about two hours with normal werid. It does stay on the lips quite well if you are eating so I would say about one to two hours even after talking and eating. I wouldn`t recommend licking your lips though LOL.

These go for $3 on elf cosmetics but you can get them for cheaper if you use a coupon code. Just type in google "elf coupon code" and you could get these for $1.50 or less!

*All pictures are mine*

Overall these are decent but I would not repurchase anymore.

I only own four of the eight colors elf has to offer, but i don`t think i will be repurchasing these. They are quite decent but iunno, not a big fan.
