Review + Swatches: e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipsticks | Slashed Beauty

Who isn’t a sucker for a good cheap lipstick? Especially when they are super comfortable, pigmented, and long-wearing… which is why the e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipsticks line is one of my favorites. The range includes both every-day wearable and and bold shades that are, in my humble opinion, packed with goodness. e.l.f. just released three new shades which I’ve swatched for you, plus two more that I’ve had stashed in my collection.

Review & Swatches: e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipsticks: Wine Tour | Slashed BeautyWine Tour is one of the new additions, and the one that I’ve been wearing most often this season. A beautiful berry, this is the perfect shade to transition into spring.

Review & Swatches: e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipsticks: Crazy Cranberry | Slashed BeautySecond of the new releases is Crazy Cranberry: dark enough to make a statement but light enough to be wearable for day-to-day.

Review & Swatches: e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipsticks: Orange Dream | Slashed BeautyThe last newest addition is Orange Dream. This one is a stand out, bright orange that goes on bold and stays that way for hours.

Review & Swatches: e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipsticks: Party in the Buff | Slashed BeautyAnother one I consider to be a bit out-there is Party in the Buff. Being lighter than my own skin tone, it blanks out my lips as a statement neutral.

Review & Swatches: e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipsticks: Blush | Slashed BeautyLastly is Blush, a beautiful peach with a golden sheen. I love this one as a light lip to pair with dramatic eyes.

The e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipsticks are just that: they have a balmy consistency that is comfortable to wear all day without drying your lips out. The darker shades leave an even stain, and can last around five hours without any feathering to be seen. I only need to touch up once mid-day to keep the color strong, and all of them are very pigmented with a glossy finish.

For only $3, these are a steal for their performance. Check them out on e.l.f.’s website.



  1. I like products that have balmy type consistency… feel good on the lips kind of deal. These are really nice and I love your swatches.

  2. These are really neat. I’m surprised to see a ton of pigment in that orange from elf, as a cheaper brand. Great to know they’re still quality!

  3. I didn’t know about these! I picked up their fall matte colors, which I loved. I will probably get all of these except the Buff one.

  4. *sigh* here you go again, Miranda, spending my money for me! 🙂 Seriously though – I definitely want to get a couple of these during my next ELF shopping spree!! Anything that is moisturizing is a plus in my book since I’m alllllways having to have something on my lips at all times. Usually I start off with a lipstick in the morning and by mid-day I need to switch to chapstick because my lips get dry and chappy. Maybe this will be my answer! Yay! 🙂

    1. I’m the exact same way. I usually switch to chapstick after lunch. But with these, I just dabbed them on to touch up and my lips felt great!

  5. Oh wow, I am super impressed with the darker shades! And like Kim, the orange is calling to me though I love the berry shade too!

    1. Oh I bet it’d look fab on you! I have a hard time rocking oranges since I have yellow undertones to my skin.
