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.
Wine 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.
Second of the new releases is Crazy Cranberry: dark enough to make a statement but light enough to be wearable for day-to-day.
The last newest addition is Orange Dream. This one is a stand out, bright orange that goes on bold and stays that way for hours.
Another 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.
Lastly 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.
