So, I’ve been Marshall’s hopping from store to store trying to find the gorgeous Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Palette, but had no such luck finding it. All good. I’ll take it as a sign that it wasn’t meant to be. However, I did find quite the spread of ELF Cosmetics (foundation, highlighter, bronzer palettes, concealers, bb creams, lipsticks, beautifully bare blushes, and the list goes on) at every store I visited, and I grabbed two of their Tinted Lip Oils. I wanted to try these for a while now. Somehow, they always tend to slip my mind when ordering online. Curse those new releases! I get distracted every time. Smh. Lol. Originally, Elf’s Tinted Lip Oil retails for $6 each. I snagged them for $1.99. Score!!!!
Cherry Kiss is a cool pinkish red.
Fuchsia Kiss is a warm hot pink.
These two shades are discontinued from the collection, but there are 9 beautiful shades to choose from if you’re into lip oils. I’m not a fan. I thought the Lip Oils were going to set as a soft stain, showing a bit of sheen, while giving my lips hydration. I thought wrong. Whoopsie Daisy.
This Tinted Lip Oil adds a beautiful sheer shine to your lips. Each shade is infused with Jojoba, Apricot, and Vitamin E to nourish and hydrate your lips with each application.
The formulation is lightweight, creamy, smooth, comfortable to wear, sheerly pigmented, applies evenly and easily, keeps lips super hydrated, and sets in a glossy finish that does not migrate off the lips.
Where it fell short for me was the longevity. I literally applied these and within 30 min the glossy tint completely faded. I can’t even make the excuse that I had anything to eat or drink because I didn’t. Elf got the hydration thing down though. My lips stayed soft and silky smooth for part of the day without feeling the need to re-apply any kind of balm.
I’m not in anyway disappointed with my purchase. I only paid $4 for two tinted lip oils and was curious as to how they performed. I will keep them around as lip toppers for my drier formulated matte lipsticks. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
Have you tried Elf’s Tinted Lip Oil?
What are your thoughts? Yay or nay?
Stay beautiful! Xo.
