ELF Cosmetics Mineral Lip Gloss


What is it?

A smooth and non-sticky lip gloss infused with shimmer. This lip gloss sells for $3.00 and can be purchased at This lip gloss contains vitamins E and A (retinol) which can help stave off the aging process. It is listed as being paraben free.

The Real Deal:
The lip gloss comes in a fairly small tube but is very inexpensive in price. The tube is a very nice package and the applicator is a doe foot applicator with soft acrylic fibers on it. The strainer near the top takes off a lot of product from the applicator. This means that you will need to apply several coats to gain a nice coating on the lips. The color is very nice and is a great neutral pink for myriad skin tones. The pink is light and can be described as a muted blush. The shimmer in the product is gold toned and adds a nice finish to the lips. The color can be used on top of lip sticks, but the formula wears best on its own.

Action Shots:

This product lasts for about 2 hours on its own without eating or drinking. The color is near complete opacity and is very flattering on the lips. This is a great choice for a minimal makeup day as it can be applied without a mirror. Also, this is a great neutral color to balance out a more dramatic eye look. Use this over brown nude, and muted pink shaded lipsticks only. There are 8 colors total ranging from light to deep. ELF has made sure that every basic color has been represented from light virtually no color to deep raisin and an orange toned coral as well.

Quality: ****/5 (For $3 this lip gloss packs a serious quality punch!)

Perks: Vitamins A & E might help stave off the aging process of the lips while the product is paraben free, and cruelty free!

Bang for your buck: *****/5 (Such a great product for such an awesome price! Sign up for their alerts and get it cheaper during sales!)

Disclaimer: I purchased this with my own money and I am not being paid for my opinion.

Have you tried any ELF cosmetics products before? If so did you like them or were they duds?
