E.L.F SPF 15 Lip Conditioners | Review & Swatches

Friday, 27 December 2013



If you follow me on twitter or instagram, then you'll probably know that I recently won one of the e.l.f giveaways that they run on their twitter page. I hardly ever win anything and always thought that these giveaways were a bit of a scam, so imagine my excitement when £500 worth of e.l.f goodies turned up at my door. I don't really know what I expected when they told me it was £500 worth but trust me there was more make up there than anyone could ever imagine and I'm currently trying to work out where to store it all as it turns out my current storage set up is just not big enough. 

Having never tried any e.l.f products before, I was excited to test them out and share my thoughts as I always look to reviews when buying products from online retailers to make sure that they do what is expected of them and what the colours really look like. So basically, expect a lot of e.l.f reviews over this coming year! 

The first thing I tested out were the tinted lip conditioners. I always carry around lip balm in some shape or form to keep my lips from going dry and it's always a bonus when they are tinted slightly to add a bit of colour to my face. The first thing I noticed about these lip conditioners is the cute packaging. They come in a little glass looking pot with a simple black lid (very Nars-esque) and look a lot more expensive than they actually are. 

I was given 4 colours in my prize box and luckily they are all colours which I would use. The colours I was given are (L-R): Blissful Berry, Peaceful Pink, Nice & Natural, and Mellow Melon, which are all very wearable colours for everyday looks. Apart from the colours, another thing I really love about these lip conditioners is the smell. These smell like sunshine, imagine a tropical beach resort...thats what these smell like. If you don't like coconut and tropical smells you probably won't be a fan but I love those kinds of smells so they are a big hit with me. 

These aren't overly opaque and pigmented so you don't have to worry about applying them without a mirror and they give your lips a much needed moisture boost when they're feeling a little dry. If my lips were seriously chapped I probably wouldn't reach for these though as they aren't a magic cure for really dry lips. They also contain SPF 15 making them great for use all year round, especially when your on your holidays (or just dreaming of going on one like me!).
