ELF regular line lipstick in seductive [review with hand and lip swatches !!]

ELF regular line essentials lipstick in seductive


ELF regular line essentials lipstick in seductive

Hello guys xD
I have another review for you guys today :D

It's about the ELF regular line or essentials lipstick in seductive.
I only have this shade. 
But ELF has other shades:
I saw people commenting that these lipsticks compare to high end lipsticks or even beat them.
I don't have high end lipsticks..
But I have like .. 25 lipsticks. 
So.. I think I do have an idea of lipsticks :)




PACKAGING

Not a fan
Looks cheap [I know the lipstick actually IS cheap]
Hate the transparent part.
Not a fan of the packaging at all. 
I adore the mineral lipstick's packaging. 
But the packaging of this product isn't the most amazing. 
But for the price you can't complain about that.




TEXTURE

 Stiff lipstick in the tube, 
but against the lip, it does transfer quite creamy. 
It does not feel creamy, nor sticky on the lips. 
It's kind of difficult to describe. 
It's not moisturising 
But it's not drying either.
The texture on the lips is quite good. 
The stiffness in the tube is a problem though. 
In fact my lipstick broke eventually. 
Because it is so stiff in the tube, you end up pressing too much against your lip.
The texture of this product is not the traditional lipstick. 
It's very similar to Eyeko's cherry fat balm in spf15



PIGMENTATION

Can be applied sheer but is very buildable.

STAYING POWER

A little more than average: 
3-4 hours.




SHADE

A rosy pink shade with red undertones :)
Very different from the online swatch
and unlike what I thought I was going to get, 
it has no coral and no peach to it.

FINISH 

I would say this is a semi matte finish.

SMELL

An artificial cherry smell.
I quite like it.


BOTTOM LINE

I will not repurchase. I barely ever use this ever since it broke. 
I  will not purchase other shades.
I used to use this quite a lot when I got it. 
and I love pairing this with ELF's mineral lipstick in natural nymph.
But now I'm not using it anymore. 
The fact that it's broken puts me off. 
I'd give it a 2/5 for the lipstick
and a 4/5 for the shade.
Till another review :)

  2. mine in gypsy broke too!!! =( Not impressed with the quality at all and the cherry scent puts me off! Gaaah, the only saving grace for these lipsticks are their price and shades. I bought three but eventually gave one to a friend, broke one and kept one in the drawer.. XD

  11. I've got 2 of the E.L.F. regular line lippys, and to be honest i love them! For the price they're amazing, and because i apply with a brush ive not had any break on me, as i have heared it happen to alot of people. Being a new lipstick fan i only have these, Sleek, urban decay and mua but these are deffinatly my faves so far!
    Do you have any good brands to reccomend? I'm a big fan of pinks and nudes and still need to find that perfect shade for me!

  13. When the lipstick break just put the broken piece in the tube over a lighter or candle for a few seconds. then add the broken piece and twist down and put the lipstick in refrigerator for 5min and it will be better than new
