ELF Lipstick Swatch and Review - Charming and Voodoo

Been testing out a few of the recent ELF products I purchased lately and I'm ready to tell you what I think of these lipsticks.

  • Silver plastic casing with a clear view of the lipstick in the middle. The both of the tubes I got were defective. It was tough twisting the product out of the tube. Also I noticed that the lipstick inside tends to lean on one side rather than staying in the middle. 
  • .012 oz or 3.5 g

  • Charming is a light slightly warm tone pink. The texture of this lipstick was somewhat creamy. I didn't find it moisturizing or drying but it was fairly comfortable and lightweight. The pigmentation was medium. Not fully opaque or sheer but has enough pigment to give lips some color. 
  • Voodoo is a medium warm red. I found it a little less creamy than Charming. You definitely need to layer the lipstick in order to build up the color payoff. Formula was neither moisturizing or drying but comfortable and lightweight.
  • The color last about 3-4 hours. 
  • The lipstick has a fruity synthetic scent. 

Final Thought

Overall, the formula is pretty decent for the price. It is light-weight, somewhat creamy, and has medium to almost opaque coverage depending on the shade and how many layers of colors you put on. It has an average lasting power and an ok scent. The only thing that I would really like to see improve is better packaging. I read many others also have trouble with the packaging as well.

  1. OOOO These really look quite great! I like how voodoo looks like a soft red, super easy to wear! And Charming is just beautiful as a nude!

    1. I love voodoo too. It's a shade that would be easy to wear and can be worn sheer if you wanted

    1. I would probably wear charming more often on typical days but I really do like voodoo more since it has good pigmentation

  3. I'm absolutely in love with the ELF one dollars lippies. They are really great quality for the prie!
