e.l.f Conditioning Lip Balm Review



With the e.l.f. Conditioning Lip Balm, lips get treated to a sheer splash of color that’s super smooth, velvety soft and non-sticky. Not only are these sheer, natural shades beautiful, they’re also beneficial, with natural ingredients that condition dry, chapped lips including Vitamins A & E. SPF 15 to protect delicate lips against harmful sun damage. By e.l.f 

There are 6 different shades of these balms( i have 5) they are retailing at £3.95/$3.50 each and you can purchase them off 


"Blissful Berry, Bombshell Brown, Peaceful Pink, Mellow Melon and Nice & Natural "
Blissful Berry;  This is a warm rosy berry shade.  The shade is sheer but gives a great colour payoff,  I find it quite pigmented but controllable meaning if your want it darker just keep layering it......I find it compliments my lips really well. 

Bombshell Brown:  This shade is a brownish nude with micro shimmer even though its not noticeable on the lips.....this is one of my favourites..... I love the way it brightens up my lips leaving them noticeable moisturised

Peaceful Pink:  This is a baby pink shade not as sheer as the first two,  this one is very pigmented and wouldn't really be one of my favourites but I still like it...... 

Mellow Melon:  This shade looks coral peachy in the pot but I find it looks more pink on my lips , its semi sheer still looks lovely on the lips and is another one of my favourites :) 

Nice & Nude:  This one is top on my list :) by far the nicest shade in my opinion........This balm is glossy and is a light nude...but doesn't make your lips love like corpse lips......this is so natural and yet so fulfilling to apply to my lips I find myself reaching for this one the most its hard to find a nude lippie that will compliment your lips but not any more :) :) thanks to e.l.f 

"Blissful Berry, Bombshell Brown, Peaceful Pink, Mellow Melon and Nice & Natural "

Your get 7.5 g from each pot with is unbelievably big for the price you are paying.......when I seen these I could not wait to get my hands on them....I bought 1 first just to see if I liked them and ass you can see i was sold the minute i tried it.......the pot fills the palm of my hand and is handy in the handbag "Well you wont be afraid you will lose it :)" one of these alone will last you like forever :) I'm a lip balm/gloss gal so I will definitely have no chance of leaving one of these aside for too long......one thing I like is my lips feeling moisturised and i have to say these babies do their job right and not only that they give your lips a wake up call!!!!!!

The balms smell to me like coconut so if you don't mind that your flying :) :)  but be warned you will definitely need a compact mirror with you when applying these as they are well pigmented and you don't want to go round looking like a 2 year old applied the balm on you lol :)  I have found that these will last from about 2- 4 hours depending on drinking eating etc.  these glosses are not one bit sticky and you can apply lightly or heavy whatever way you decided they are still going to give a good colour payoff....

 

As i said above i have 5/6 I'm missing the last one on the list with is "Romantic rouge" in which I did have but it has mysteriously disappeared hhhmmmmmm I wonder where :) :) any ways I will purchase it again and post up swatches of it soon........so do I think you should purchase one or more of these HELL YE you would spend alot more money on a lip balm stick and only get 1/4 of what you are getting in these plus these conditioning lip balms has SPF15 in them now what more would you be looking for :) 

So that's it ladies hope you enjoyed my review if you did spread the word :) :) 
I'm hoping my reviews and pictures help you in your decisions on either you would like to try  or not 

until next time 
lots of Irish kisses 
Love Nina xoxoxoxox

Very nice post :), makes me want to have some. Melon, perhaps... what's the scent like?

Nina said...

hey liisk as i said the scent reminds me of coconut its not strong..... they are a lovely balm i love them :)

LiisK said...

Oh, they all smell like coconut, Im sorry, I missed that part. I guess if it's not too strong it's ok - usually I prefer scentless stuff near my nose.

Nina said...

im quite fussy when it comes to lip products too as you can smell and taste i hate anything cosmetic on my lips.....these are definitely bearable if you have tried the super shine lip glosses they have a sweeter scent :)
