E.L.F. Studio Lip Balm Review, Swatches, Photos
Do you find that the E.L.F. Studio Collection proves better than the original collection? I like to think so. Most everything I’ve purchased from the Studio Collection has been fairly good but anything I’ve gotten from their original collection is kinda a miss.
E.L.F. Studio Lip Balm is currently on my hit list.
I like it and I think you will too!
I admit I didn’t like these little balms at first. I was a bit meh. Coming out of an experience with Revlon Lip Butters you start measuring every single balm you try against those and let’s face it, that’s a bit unfair eh?
But after using one for a few days I gotta say, I like ‘em. I only have the one shade but I quickly logged onto E.L.F. and gathered up the other shades I didn’t have as hey, for three bucks you can’t beat it!
These are essentially a lip balm so if you felt like Revlon’s Lip Butters were a bit too much and just wanted to head back to simplicity this brings that formula to the table. They have a soft glide across my lips with a balm-y texture that hydrates nicely but doesn’t leave lips slick or shiny. I think the joy of the formula is although they are a balm they have a very lightweight, virtually weightless finish that wears comfortably throughout the day without peeling off or looking gross after an hour or two, you know what I mean right?
I do wish they offered a bit more moisture in some aspects but I don’t necessarily mind as they keep my lips feeling and looking soft. The color payoff is quite good and builds easily for more pop. The shade I tried, Rose, was a bitten rosy red shade that looked rather pretty on. I think some of the other shades have the potential for an MLBB (my lips but better) experience.
The packaging is fairly nice as well. Simple black square tube with a swivel up design. The balm swivels up and down without any issue. Nothing worst than getting a lip product that swivels up but refuses to swivel back down.
Overall, I really have no complaints here. The weightless formula, the tinge of color, SPF 15, and the very affordable price tag puts these in my Muse Approval book.
Pick one or two up, I think you’ll like them as much as I did.
