I wrote about the brand ELF before, it was about the 4 nail polishes. I also received back then a beautiful lipstick in the color Fantasy. It’s already a while autumn and I think this color fits perfectly with the autumn season, but I actually wear it all year.
It’s such a warm color. It also give me a vintage feeling and I also need to think about the 90’s. The 90’s lips are a little back and I think it’s because of Kylie Jenner. I at least love it! Even if I really think it’s an autumn color I did wear it a lot in Italy in the summer of 2015, but I also wear it a lot nowadays. I think this color fits with everything.
This color doesn’t seem so intense than it is in the real, but every time I use a lip balm under it and after a while I put a lipstick over it then it becomes less intense. The color looks a lot like my own lip color, which I love. I don’t like to wear lipsticks in the daytime that are intense or having lots of color. So I like this lipstick is close to my own lip color – a little my lips but better effect – but that it is also a matte lipstick (something I love when it’s about lipsticks) and a little vintage/90’s style. Besides that this week I wore the lipstick without a lip balm before adding the lipstick and it was pretty intense, but I still like it with some lip balm under it, it looks better on me that way.
I’m actually pretty happy with this lipstick. I love the color and I didn’t had a lipstick in years I love to wear so much. Like I said here above I don’t like to wear a lipstick with lots of color, I don’t feel good doing that, although I’m trying more and more colorful lipsticks. This is a beautiful color and it isn’t one that make me feel uncomfortable, because it’s not so intense. I also think it fits perfectly with the trends we have now (not like I care about that, but if you do then you know that now).
The only thing I found what I didn’t like about the lipstick is what’s around the lipstick. I have to say I don’t like the tube that much, not like it’s ugly, but it really gives you a cheap feeling. It is cheap of course, but still it don’t have to look cheap then right? Besides that the letters on the tube were gone immediately. So my tube is now completely silver. The last thing about the tube is that the turning the lipstick up goes way too easy, so it happens a lot that the lipstick goes against the pod.
So besides the tube I’m pretty enthusiastic about this lipstick and that’s the most important! It’s easy to add and it stays pretty long for such a cheap lipstick. You need to add some new lipstick after a meal, but besides that it stays pretty good. Especially if you don’t wear lip balm under it, when you use lip balm under it then you need to add new lipstick more often. And the lipstick can cover very well if you want to, like I said I don’t want to, so for me it’s really good this way and gives me a my lips but better effect, but do you want more color? don’t add lip balm under it and use a few layers and it’s perfectly covered!
The lipstick only costs €1.50, so that’s very cheap and for that price I really would recommend it and even if it was a bit more expensive I would be enthusiastic about it, but of course because of seeing this price and knowing how much I love it, that’s amazing.
When I was searching for more information about ELF I found out that the founder says “we’ve never cut back on the formula, but we did do it on the packing” when it’s about why it is so cheap and still good products. That makes sense and that means I’m not crazy it looks so cheap to me, but it also means that they know the formula is more important than the packing and I agree with that. So it’s absolutely no reason to not buy it because of that.
