Review: ELF Conditioning Lip Balms

Monday, 18 July 2011
Hiya,

I have had my Conditioning Lip Balms by ELF for around a month now so that has given me plenty of time to figure out whether I like them or not. I definitely did have high hopes for them because I had seen a lot of positive reviews on them.
Left- Romantic Rouge, Right- Mellow Melon
I picked 'Romantic Rouge' because firstly, rosy/ red shades do tend to suit me quite well and secondly, my lips are a little pigmented so it wouldn't look too crazy on me either. 'Mellow Melon' is a shade which is one of the more popular ones and that was the reason behind this purchase as I thought it must look good to be so in demand!

On using these for the first time, I noticed how smooth the consistency was and how easily they glide on to the lips. The pigmentation in each shade is also pretty good and I could definitely differentiate between the colours.

All shades of these lip balms have the same scent, which is sweet and sugary. I personally like the smell and am pretty sure most of you would!

Lastly, I did feel like they moisturise my lips but I mainly like them for being a lip product I can quickly slap on if I am in a hurry. They do condition and hydrate, but not as much as maybe my Korres lip butter. I would compare it to, and think it is very similar in that way to the MAC Tinted Lip Conditioners. This is definitely a cheaper option (£3.50) and the colours are so pretty!

As an afterthought, I decided to mix both shades together to see how it would look..
Very pretty, no?

What do you think of them?

  7. I have the one in peaceful pink and I like it!~ (: I LOVE the smell! It smells like vanilla cupcake or something haha~ But I kind of don't like these jar type lip products because I don't like to get my hands dirty and constantly stick my finger in these and then rub it on my mouth.. haha~

  9. I really rate ELF for lip balms, primers etc'. They seem to create lip products that compete very well against much more expensive brands.
