ELF -- Lipsticks, Eyeliner, Lip Balm

First off!

Kinda erked me. I almost wish they had forgotten the U as well, so I could say DEFINES YO EYES.


I got the Cream Eyeliner in Black, the Conditioning Lip Balm with SPF 15 in Blissful Berry and two lipsticks, Seductive and Fantasy.

Look how huge that lip balm is! It's so big. Especially next to the cream eyeliner. I don't know how I feel about that; I definitely won't lose it in my bag though~

Again, look how huge it is!

Both of these were £3.50 (studio line), so maybe that's why I got a huge lip balm. Meh. I would've preferred it if the sizes were switched, so the eyeliner was the bigger pot, but then, I probably wouldn't use it all and it'd dry up. The pots are very easy to cross thread, so you do have to be careful when you put them back on.

This brush comes with the eyeliner, and I must say, it does the job really well!

Lipsticks in Seductive and Fantasy.

These lipsticks are from their regular line, so they cost £1.50 each, which isn't bad. I like the packaging, it's nice and simple, and I don't have any other lipsticks that look like this in the tube. They're about the same size as all the other lipsticks I have (which admittedly isn't many), and they feel a lot lighter than the others though.

Yep, I know I got the name wrong for the lip balm :( It's Blissful Berry, not Blissfully

Quick run through of the products, one by one.

Lip Balm in Blissful Berry: This lipbalm is thicker than most lip balms; I'm used to using things like the Nivea lipbalms which feel a lot thinner and slide on easier. This balm is almost more of a solid lipgloss.
It smells like a standard vanilla lip balm, which luckily for me is my favourite! It also has a slightly sugary taste if you're to lick your lips. The colour is perfect for me. I have quite pigmented lips, and this berry colour is my perfect My Lips But Better colour. You do have to make sure your lips are perfectly exfoilated before you put the balm on, otherwise the flakes get caught in the thick balm and feel weird as hell on your lips. Glad I paid the £3.50 for this though, because it means I have a conditioning lip gloss with SPF 15 :P

Cream Eyeliner in Black: This eyeliner is one of the better cheap cream eyeliners I've tried. It's not what I'd describe as creamy though. It's a thinner than that, but it works amazingly. The little brush you get with it works really well too; and I was surprised by that because usually they're pretty dire. I was able to get a nice steady, solid line, and it was definitely black not grey! It doesn't budge, I've wiped over the swatch a few times after it dried, and I don't think it's going anywhere.

Lipstick in Fantasy: This looks soooo different than the picture on the website. It's still a really nice colour, a medium warm toned brown, with a creamy feel to it. These lipsticks are very buildable, and to be honest this one needs to be. One swipe, and it's a little patchy, but I use a lip brush anyway. There's no shimmer to the product at all, and I find that it smells like a soap from The Body Shop. Like one of the clear fruit soap bars. Hmm.

Lipstick in Seductive: Again, slightly different colour than on the website, but I think I like this colour more than what I was expecting. It's a warm pink, that goes on quite sheer, so it's easy to build it up to be more opaque, if that's what you want. It looks really nice and natural on me, so I'm a big fan. It again has The Body Shop smell! It reminds me of being a kid when I used to steal my aunt's soap. It definitely has a smell though so don't be fooled by the n/a; it has under scent. I find it pleasant, but some people might not.

Products can be purchased from Eyes Lips Face.
