e.l.f All Over Color Stick & Conditioning Lip Balm

[Conditioning Lip Balm: £3.38*, All Over Color Stick: £1.50*]

e.l.f is a brand I've heard a lot of Bloggers talk about but one I had never thought of trying. When I was offered to review a couple of products I was intrigued and thought it would be a great chance to try them out for myself. I received an All Over Color Stick* in Pink Lemonade and a Conditioning Lip Balm* in Nice & Natural and have been trying them out over the last couple of weeks.

The All Over Color Sticks are a 3 in 1 product for eyes, lips and cheeks. Pink Lemonade isn't really a shade you would use on your eyes, so I stuck with my lips and cheeks. However, I was left a little disappointed with this product. It did give a lovely glow to my cheeks, but it felt a little bit sticky and it just isn't a colour I'd wear on my lips as it's got a bit too much shimmer for my liking. They also come in champagne and gold colours which I think would be more my taste and would look really nice as a highlight. When I first saw this product, it reminded me of a smaller, cheaper version of the NARS multiples, (which I still haven't got my hands on) however they definitely aren't a dupe. If you can get passed the stickiness, you can buy them online here for £1.50.

Now for the product I actually liked, the Conditioning Lip Balm in Nice & Natural. During the winter months especially, my lips get really chapped and dry and I like to carry multiple lip balms in my bag. These lip balms contain vitamins A & E to condition your lips and have SPF 15 to protect them from sun damage. This product left my lips feeling soft and moisturised whilst leaving a lovely subtle hint of colour. Nice & Natural is a great every day shade, especially for work and it didn't leave my lips feeling sticky at all. The Conditioning lip balms cost £3.38 and come in a range of different shades. You can also purchase them online here.

Have you ever tried any of the e.l.f products and what are your favourites? I have my eye on the Baked Blush's that I saw on Sandra's blog.


  1. The all over colour looks too frosty and shimmery, but I like the look of the lip balm. I haven't tried any elf products yet >.<

  2. ELF can be so hit or miss, and my biggest peeve about the products they make that I don't like are the way they "feel" on my skin, so I'm totally hearing you on the sticky problem.
