ALAD Day 4: ELF Mineral Lipstick in Party Pink

I have been a fan of ELF products for a long time now and these lipsticks are no exception. The price makes it a really great value and they constantly have coupons on the website. I believe I got mine for $2.50, which is half off. 





The color is a pretty pink with slight shimmers in the light. The color is very flattering on many skin tones. It's also pretty pigmented and super soft. 





ELF says: Now you can hydrate your lips and get a lasting soft color naturally! This nourishing blend of exotic oils, natural waxes, vitamins and plant extracts create the perfect moisturizing formula. The sleek lipstick has superior color payoff, glides easily onto lips, and is long wearing. Lips stay perfectly hydrated and soft throughout the day for no fuss, lip loving happiness. All our mineral makeup is 100% mineral based with no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes.

The lipstick container is a soft-finished black plastic. The e.l.f. logo is on the top of the lid, while the “eyeslipsface” logo is positioned vertically on the lipstick’s base.



I like the consistency of the lipstick, but even after prepping my lips, I found it drying. The lipstick was moisturizing for about the first 30 mins I wore it, then it just settled into my lips and I either had to reapply or to add a gloss. It's very matte.




KEY NOTES:
Pigmentation: Average and very wearable
Long-lasting? No. about 1 hr
Finish: A shimmery, glossy finish, slightly matte. 
Texture: Creamy and smooth
Scent: No real scent
Taste: Slight plastic taste.
Packaging: Sleek. matte black, square
Cost: $5 (Most times less bc of online codes)
Overall: For the price, this lipstick is worth the money. The shades are pretty flattering on most skin types. The only thing is that the website has crappy color swatches. I recommend looking on blogs for those. The color doesn't last long, but it is very pretty. It's pigmented and somewhat moisturizing. 


    Pros
  • Lots of color choices
  • Creamy texture
  • No taste
  • Price
  • Packaging
    Cons
  • Settles into chapped lips
  • Must prep lips to wear
  • Only available online or in select stores
  • Drying

You can play it, but it is this year's greatest thrill for fans of the movie, it lives in a temple in the mountains of Gracidea. Definitely, you can get paid for playing farcry3 release. If there are many good reasons why the Xbox is undoubtedly the Play Station's impressive Blu-ray player.
