I am a massive fan of lip crayons and when I saw that ELF had some on their website I knew I had to try one. I chose the shade Flirty and Girly.
These have some great ingredients in them such as Jojoba, Soybean and Vitamin E which are said to help moisturise the lips.
I love the packaging of these, they have a white casing with a clear lid so you can see the colour. The end is also colour coordinated to match the product. I like that ELF have opted for different packaging from other brands the majority of brands that have these products such as Clinique, Revlon, MUA, Bourjois, Rimmel, L'Oreal pretty much ever single brand that has a lip crayon has the same packaging. I do like that packaging but I like that ELF has gone for something different instead of copying what everyone else has done.
The colour is a fuchsia pink with blue undertones which helps make the teeth seem whiter. This product does have glitter in it but unlike some other lip products the glitter doesn't feel gritty on my lips. Although it does have glitter in it I don't feel that the glitter is too much and I think it is still suitable to wear during the day. I can't speak for all the shades in the range but this one is very pigmented, I think that some of the lighter shades would be quite sheer but you would be able to build them up. The lasting power is pretty good they last a couple of hours, when it fades it leaves a bit of colour and shimmer. Unlike some these are advertised as being lip gloss sticks so they aren't supposed to stain your lips so that is why they don't last as long as some of the others that I have tried.
The formula is very creamy and smooth on my lips. This formula is very hydrating and I think it is because of the added ingredients: Jojoba, Soybean and Vitamin E which helps to keep the lips hydrated. One complaint that I have about it is the smell, it has an odd smell which I can't describe it isn't particularly horrible but I prefer the minty smell the Revlon ones have.
The colour range is quite impressive for a cheaper brand, it has 8 shades in total so there should be something for everyone. I really like this product and I would definitely get some others as I am really impressed with this. This is much cheaper than the other ones available but in my opinion it is just as good.
