Today I have for you a very good product at a very low price! yay!
It's the E.l.f. Super Glossy Lip Shine Spf 15 in (L to R) Angel, Candlelight and Mauve luxe. I'm not 100% sure that these are the colours I have because when they came the packaging was a little sticky. I cleaned them with alcohol and the names disappeared! :( Checking with the colours and names at the website I believe these are the colours but I'm not totally sure. Anyway, let's move on..
It comes in a lipgloss tube that contains 0.35oz (10g) of product and can be used for 12 months after opening. Ingredients are written on the back. The tip of the tube is angled so that it can be applied directly on the lips. Here's a photo, to see what I'm talking about.
You can definitely throw it in your purse and apply directly on lips whenever and wherever you want.
Ingredients (from E.L.F. UK website):
Paraffinum Liquidum, Polybutene, Silica, Fragrance, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Benzophenone-3, Ethylhexyl, Methoxycinnamate, Titanium Dioxide, Red No.7, Calcium Lake(CI 15850:1), Red No.6 Barium Lake (CI 15850:2), Red No.27 Aluminum Lake(CI 45410:2), Red No.40 Aluminum Lake(CI 16035), Blue No.1 Aluminum Lake(CI 42090:2), Iron Oxide(CI 77499)
The actual product
Outdoors, sun (L to R) Angel, Candlelight and Mauve luxe
Outdoors, shade (L to R) Angel, Candlelight and Mauve luxe
Colour: I have 3 lipglosses. As you can see in the photos, Angel is clear with multicoloured glitter, Candlelight is a shimmery light beige-coral colour and Mauve luxe is a mauve-brown colour with no shimmer or glitter. They have good pigmentation as you can see above.
Feeling: They have thick consistency but they are not sticky. They do not transfer easily so they stay long in the lips. You can't feel the glitters in Angel. Btw, Angel is the only one that doesn't have spf, it's written on the website and on the tube itself (see above). They moisturise the lips and they don't leave them dry when they are gone.
Smell/Taste: They have a very light sweet scent but you can't really smell it when on lips. And they taste sweet, really good! I know, I shouldn't eat my lipglosses but these ones are really tasty!
Last but not least: Designed in USA, made in China, not tested on animals.
They are cheap but not tiny, the have great pigmentation and last long on lips, they have spf 15 or pretty glitters, you can throw them in your purse and apply them directly from the tube or with lip brush on your clients, you can mix them and make your perfect colour, what more can I ask for? I know, more colours! :D
Would I buy it again?
Yes. Angel is my favourite out of the 3 and it's perfect with dramatic eye make up.
