e.l.f. Essentials Luscious Liquid Lipstick

therapy is here. Intensive hydrating agents along with natural pigments leave lips with long-lasting color and moisture. This luscious liquid lipstick creates wearable color that flatters a multitude of skin tones and looks.

I've been eyeing these for a while. The packaging remind me of the Stila lip products---though I don't own any of those! But I love the little twist bottom that clicks to release the product! The first time you use them, you really do have to twist it about 12 times, like the packaging says to do. The tip is a slanted, felt like tip:

For some called a "luscious liquid lipstick" I was kind of expecting a little more color than these provide. They feel like a mix between a gloss and a lipstick. It's not heavy or sticky and is very smooth. There's a slight scent to these that I enjoy. Here's my swatches:

So you can see that raspberry is really the only one that adds color to my lips. The others really just look like I'm wearing a clear gloss--although I'll admit they do a hint of color.

The Stila lip products start around $20. These are $1!! You won't get too many uses out of these, but for a buck, they are pretty nice. There's 11 different colors. Now that I know how sheer they are, I'll probably try some of the darker colors next time. If you want to see all the colors, go here.

Which ones have you tried?

Check out my guest post on Sedona Lace's blog! I swatched the 28 blush palette, which is amazing by the way!
