ELF Essentials Lipstick Swatches
Hi! I purchased a bunch of lipsticks to try out and three of them are from ELF. So, today I’m going to share with you ELF Essentials lipstick swatches in Seductive 7703, Captivating 7709, and Flirtatious 7710. Would you believe that I bought these for only PhP68.00 a piece? Yes, that’s right! There are many emerging online stores who sell makeup products on a much lesser price compared to the malls. But if you prefer seeing the product first before purchase, you can buy these at the malls for more or less PhP130.
The packaging of the carton and the lipstick itself is pretty simple… actually, it has a cheap plastic packaging. But it’s okay with me, because it lightweight, scrolls okay and the cap doesn’t fall out. You can see the color of the lipstick from the transparent chamber, which by the way is slightly a different color on what’s printed on its carton packaging or even on the swatches on the e.l.f. website.
This is how they look like when opened. You see that you get a good amount of product for its price. One thing that I don’t like in the packaging, is the cap. One of these three has slightly loose cap so I had to be careful placing this in my bag or else all the stuff inside the bag will get their own share of lipstick.
Here are the swatches on my arm. I love how it glides smoothly and that it is creamy and moisturizing. There’s no need to apply any lip gloss. The pigmentation is sheer but you can build it to achieve your desired opacity.
What I don’t like about it is that it transfers and doesn’t stay on the lips that long especially when you drink or eat. It also can be easily wiped off just after application. But then again, it is priced super cheap!… so I thought I can always re-apply 🙂
There are 12 shades in total, but some shades are no longer seen on their website… maybe it’s out-of-stock as of writing.
