I didn’t expect much from the E.L.F. Jumbo Lip Gloss Sticks since they are part of the Essentials Collection. I dunno about you but I enjoy the Studio line a hell of a lot more than the Essentials one.
Plus with so many chubby pencil products like this on the market at the moment I questioned if I really needed another to love.
But I gotta say it’s the best two bucks I’ve spent in a while. Haul some. You’ll be happy with these.
E.L.F. Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick are available in eight shades for $2 each. These are a twist up pencil so sharpening is not necessary. The twist mechanism works perfectly. Nothing is worst than getting a pencil that swivels up but not down!
They are an aptly named product as many brands will call their lip pencil “a lipgloss stick” but few will master the formula of one. These have a soft, easy glide on lips with a nourishing blend of Jojoba, Soybean, and Vitamin E to condition and moisturize lips. They feel slick, they look shiny, and they leave behind a glossy tint of color.
Summer Nights, Tiki Torches, Sangria Starters, Coco Loco
Most definitely a formula to love. The tint is sheer but not so sheer you can’t see the color on lips. They wear quite well at around two to three hours and remain lightweight and hydrating through that wear time.
The formula isn’t as pigmented as Revlon’s new Colorstay Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain and not as balmy in texture as Clinique’s Chubby Sticks. I’d say it was most comparable to the slicker feel of Tarte’s LipSurgence Lip Luster.
Overall, at a mere $2 each they are well worth picking up. At this price you can haul all the shades for the price you’d pay for one Tarte Lip Luster plus they are the same size and you’d have change left over from the purchase. Take that Tarte! My only issue? I’d love a bigger range of colors and I wish E.L.F. would label which are shimmer as I really loved the shimmery shades! Tiki Torches is a gorgeous golden peach sparkle and Summer Nights is a pretty beige shimmer but they are blindfolded purchases as the site doesn’t really say they are sparkle finishes! Boo! Aside from that these are a win.
Muse Approved for purchase.
Def haul a few!
