Product Rave: e.l.f. Studio Glossy Gloss.

I've been wanting to try an e.l.f. Glossy Gloss since I came across one on a haul post. The shade that I mostly seen was Berry Blush. I was super excited when I was browsing the e.l.f. site to see that they finally added the e.l.f. Glossy Glosses. Of course I had to order all 10 shades!



Description: Looking for ultra shine without the shimmer? Glossy Gloss is here! Our high shine, pigmented Glossy Gloss delivers a beautiful sheen and a rich tint of color to your pout. Great for wearing alone or over your favorite e.l.f. Cosmetics lipstick, lip pencil, or any lip color for a vivid gloss effect. The Vitamin E infused formula provides intense hydration and moisture, for lip pucker perfection!

Retail Price: $3.00

e.l.f. Glossy Gloss: Ballet Slippers, Berry Blush, Dragon Fruit, Funky Fuchsia, Merry Cherry

e.l.f. Glossy Gloss: Muted Mauve, Pink Candy, Tangy Tangerine, Sweet Salmon, Wild Watermelon

PROS:
  • Inexpensive
  • Non-sticky
  • Pleasant scent
  • Creamy formula
  • Sleek packaging
  • Nice pigmenation
  • Variety of shades available
  • Includes a brush applicator

  • CONS:
  • Availability

  • Overall Thoughts: The e.l.f. Glossy Glosses are my new favorite e.l.f. product! They're part of the e.l.f. Studio Line and most of my favorite products from them are from the Studio Line. They're comparable to the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss and the MAC Cremesheen Glass.

    Packaging: The packaging is really simple and sleek. It's very similar to the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss packaging. I didn't have any issues with the top coming loose on any of the glosses. These lip glosses feature a brush applicator, which I rarely see with a drugstore lipgloss. If you're not a fan of the doe foot applicator then you're going to like these. The applicators aren't a big deal breaker for me.

    Formula: The formula is a creamy, sheer wash of color. I don't find them to be sticky at all. The formula is also similar to the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss and the MAC Cremesheen Glass. They'e more similar to the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss, but not as thick. It's definitely in between those two glosses.

    Scent: I read that these had a MAC scent. Upon opening a few I didn't notice that. I realized that the scent isn't the same for all 10 glosses. Some do have the MAC vanilla scent and others have a berry, fruity scent. The scents are consistent, but luckily they smell yummy.

    Availability: At first you were only able to purchase a few select shades at Target or Kmart. Online there are a total of 10 shades. They've been out of stocked since I placed an order last month. My Target doesn't carry e.l.f. available permanently, so I'm not able to purchase these locally.

    For only $3 there's no way I'm passing these up! If you're a fan of the glosses that I mentioned above then I'm sure you're going to like these too. I'm currently waiting for them to be restocked so that I can get backups of my favorites.

    Swatches of all the e.l.f. Studio Glossy Gloss!

    Wowie, that's so cool that these are comparable to MAC glosses! I absolutely love all of the colors and don't blame you for buying all 10 :D
    I definitely want to pick some of these up, especially those really pretty light pinks! Tangy tangerine is probably my favorite. Great post!
