If you are a regular visitor or follower you will know im not the kind of gal who buys in 1's lol i have to sample at least two or more of the same product and obviously different shades before i make i mind up about the product........well that is if they are great value and thats exactly where e.l.f is great for that im obsessed i have to admit and with the prices and great quality e.l.f has to offer im able to afford to buy more than one.....If its good i will keep buying different shade as you can see by these i have 11 shades so it must mean one thing :) :)
e.l.f Mineral Lipsticks are available on eyeslipface.co.uk & eyeslipsface.com for £3.50/$5/€4 each. There are 16 shades available but recently the US site got 2 new shades as you will see on the site but anyway down to the review :) :)
This is a sturdy lipstick i have to say i feel safe carrying this in my handbag with no worries of the lid coming off or it been broken. The lipsticks come in a white box with the ingredients and shade written on it........The tube of lipstick itself is made of hard black plastic with the eyes lips face written on the side and e.l.f on the lid......the lid clicks down so there is no fear of it coming off........Its not terribly exciting but to be honest what drugstore/cheaper lipstick packaging are....its all about the product at the end of the day isnt it :)
|I Got 3 Additional Shades Since doing this Review and here they are :)|
Im sure you all or even most of you have at least tried one of these lippies if you havent .......put at least one on your next order.......These lipsticks are super soft and creamy........They are very sheer....Some of these have shimmer on them but apply matte actually all of them apply matte.......They feel so conditioning on the lips you feel like you are wearing balm not lipstick.......There are different shades to choose from like pinks, reds, natural and browns so there is definitely a colour or more for everyone.....There is no Scent or taste off these lippies which is what i love as i hate lippies that have a cosmetic taste off them..***Update i got 3 additional shade since doing this review girls so scroll down to read about them :) :) :)
Nicely Nude: This is definately one of my favourite everyday lipsticks......I love the MLBB look it gives me......As you can see its a lovely sheer pink and make your lips look so pretty....This is a perfect lippie to go with a smokey eye look...... LOVE LOVE LOVE IT
Natural Nymph: This is definately a shade for us IRISH GALS :) anyone who has fair skin this is a perfect lippy for you anyone darker you will have to use this as a primer for another lippy or have some tinted lipgloss on the ready........This is a Nude/pinkish lipstick nicely moist and perfect with a gloss over it or on its own with a smokey eye
Rosy Tan: I Love Browns.......This a a natural nude/pinky/brown lol if that make sense.......Its beautiful with a everyday look.....Its sheer on the first application but with a second coat you are getting a nice pigmentation from this lipstick......
Pouty Petal: This is a lovely neutral pink shade it give me a MLBB look......Again a lovely everyday lippie its quite sheer to be honest there is lip balms out there that can give you the same look thats just my personal opinion to be honest i do love it i would just rather spend my £3.50 on another shade than have yet another MLBB lippy from this range
Barely Bitten: This has a wee bit of shimmer but does not show on the lips.......Its a dark coral shade and perfect for any skin tone.....This is surprisingly more pigmented than the ones ive just spoken about.....I like that :) This is another on my list of favourites and i will certainly be buying again
Rosy Raisin: Yet another MLBB lippy don't get me wrong i love lipsticks like this but i think a couple of different ones in the collection is fine but more than that is too much well in my eyes anyway.........Yet this does show a little shimmer on the lip but is barely noticeable as a lipstick some people like that but to me a lip-gloss can do the same thing. This is a very sheer pink :)
Runaway Pink: Now this shade has been the most highly recommended lipstick by most people who have bought it.....This would be everyone's favourite so you can imagine the curiosity in me when i purchased this first i couldn't wait to get it.........This is a very sheer light nude/pink.......again us IRISH GALS will love this shade as we have the fair skin for it .........Nice for an everyday lipstick and even nicer with a bit of gloss over it :)
Party Pink: I Love This.........Now this is a pink lippie.......its the most pigmented baby pink in this pack i love it........Its so pretty and looks so moisturising on the lips......it actually makes my lips look a little plump.......This has a slight bit of shimmer to it but not noticable.......I suppose it all depends on the pigmentation of your own lips but if you have pale lips this will look very pink but wearable if you have pigmented lips this will look slightly pinky/coral i love it :)
|New: "Royal Red|
|New: "Cheeryful Cherry"|
Cheerful Cherry: Now this is Red lol......Its a beautiful Deep Cherry Red shade....Quite Dramatic i love it......If you are looking for a good pigmented red this is the one........Now dont be afraid if you are fair skinned this actually works for us too :) its not a bright red but more blood red it applies brilliantly and doesnt bleed on the lip after a while
|New: "Bare Brown"|
Bare Brown: Now this is a shade that Doesn't seem to be bought or reviewed much.....I dont see why to be honest.......Ok its not the most exciting shade i have bought and to be honest i wouldnt wear this alone as it is more of a nude light brown shade but this is perfect for making my fairly pigmented lips more nude for other shades ......i dont really like using concealers on my lips to nude them out as i hate hate hate my lips dried out but this shade is perfect and moisturising and works well with another colour over it.....It also looks good with a dark smokey eye look but again as i said this lipstick is not going to be for everyone........

I think these lipsticks are a great buy full stop.....overall you have a great choice in shades.....Some perfect for fair , medium and dark skinned people which is brilliant......I do advise anyone thinking of buying these to google swatches before you buy them so that you wont be disappointed in the shades when you get them........
These lipsticks are doing nothing but great things for your lips in which i love also......They are super moisturising and last up to 3 hours before top up.......
I highly recommend you buy them to try them i havent heard any bad reviews about these and im certainly not giving one either. The only bad thing i have heard is about disappointing shades in which i have said to review swatches before buying......
I have more mineral lipsticks ordered so keep an eye out for an update.....I have the 2 from the US Site that are just in ordered too so im excited about that hehe....
Until next time ladies take care
Lots of Irish hugs and kisses
