Review: E.L.F Mineral Lipsticks

Thursday, 24 March 2011
Hiya,

Lipstick's for me are one of my most favourite products which is why I have so many different colours and varieties. I chose to review the E.L.F Mineral Lipsticks because they are affordable, the packaging is gorgeous and the product is high quality.
I have seven of the sixteen shades. All these lipsticks are gorgeous in colour. The only one that didn't suit me at all is 'Natural Nymph'. This is because it is a nude and generally nude's don't look good on me. They are creamy and easy to apply. Pretty much all of them are really pigmented except 'Rosy Raisin', which is a little more sheer, but that is the one I like the best! It suits my skin tone perfectly and looks gorgeous for a natural look.
The first four are the shades that can be worn every day. They are also some of the more popular shades. All apart from 'Natural Nymph' I think would suit most skin tones.

- 'Natural Nymph' is a creamy nude. I can't really wear it unless I put a different coloured gloss on top. It will suit fair skin tones.

- 'Nicely Nude' is a nude-pink. It is definitely more wearable and still looks natural.

- 'Runway Pink' is a light pink. This also doesn't look as good on me as it would someone with fair skin.

- 'Rosy Raisin' is a pinkish brown. It would look great on anyone with medium toned skin.

These are the slightly darker shades which I mainly purchased to try out as I don't  have any darker, red colours in my collection.

- 'Cool Coral' is a coral with a gold sheen. I will definitely be rocking it this summer!

- 'Barely Bitten' is a pinkish red and it is very wearable especially for medium skin tones.

- 'Royal Red' is a deep red, almost burgundy. It is a really pretty colour but for obvious reasons, it can't be worn every day.

I really like the E.L.F Studio and Mineral lines. They are both good value for money. Most of their products are priced lower than a lot of the drugstore brands and their quality sometimes exceeds them- worth trying out!

  2. Thanks for the review, think I may have to purchse more from this range now!
    Just an fyi for everyone though, natural nymph wont necessarily suit everyone with fair skin- I'm quite pale (cool toned) and it makes me look a little dead! I think those with warmer toned pale skin could pull it off though :)
