Elf review: Luscious Liquid Lipstick


Yet another review on a product by eyeslipsface.co.uk-
this time, it's about their Luscious Liquid lipstick in shade Baby Lips.


Just to clear things out straight from the beginning: this is not a liquid lipstick, as the name suggests. More like a sheer lipgloss, which is to be expected from Elf. Still, it's my favourite among the Elf lipglosses I've tried so far! Read on to see why:

     Pros:
* it doesn't feel sticky on the lips
* has a sponge applicator that is soaked with the product once you twist
  the bottom, which "hugs" the lips better than sponge/brush wands!
* gives a subtle minty scent and a tiny tingling on the lips- which I love!


     Cons:
* there's only 1.5ml of product, though not a big turn-off for the price
* on its own, it applies sheer on the lips
* the sponge applicator gets messy and dirty pretty easily,
  but TBO you'll use up the whole thing before it gets too nasty ;)


Compared to its cousin Hypershine Gloss, the Luscious Liquid lipstick wins fair and square: the scent of the Hypershine lipgloss is much stronger (so more likely to cause you a headache, really!), plus its brush applicator collects the product up on the bristles where they bind with the plastic tube, not on the bristles' ends.

In the end, would I recommend this product?
Definitely! But only to those who like to layer a sheer, non-sticky wash of lipgloss on top of lipsticks, IMO this Luscious Liquid lipstick can't be worn on its own.


This is how much I love it: already bought a back-up!
Which I never do with makeup products :/

Note: most (if not all) lipglosses that Elf has to offer are not sticky and swatch pretty sheer, so the only thing that sets Luscious Liquid lipstick apart from the rest is its sponge applicator; for reference the lipgloss by Clarins Nic from Pixiwoo raves about has the same sponge applicator ;)

So, have you tried any Luscious Liquid lipsticks?
Which is your favourite lipgloss Elf makes?

    1. Χεχε πάντως το καθαυτό lipgloss δεν είναι κάτι σπουδαίο- αλλά επειδή δεν έχω δει από άλλη εταιρεία τέτοια lipgloss με σφουγγαράκι, το ξεχώρισα το συγκεκριμένο! xx

    1. Noooo they're not sticky at all! I think Elf makes no sticky lipglosses at all. Unlike Mac ;)
