Elf: Conditioning Lip Balm SPF15 ReviewWednesday, 30 May 2012 10:55
I'm writing from my holiday in Scotland today, as we have some spare time this morning and I couldn't resist! I am writing this post about another Elf product I bought a month or so ago, that I forgot to mention in my last Elf post because it was still in my handbag! So here it is, Elf's Conditioning Lip Balm SPF15, from their studio line:
The shade I have is 'Nice & Natural', which I chose because I thought it would be better to have a nice neutral colour, although I also didn't expect the colour to be very pigmented. I was wrong! The colour payoff is actually really good and almost gives the illusion of a sheer lipstick. It doesn't last for ages and ages, but you wouldn't expect that from a lip balm really. Below is a better shot of the colour- I have used this quite a lot, so I apologise about the finger marks!
As for the formula, I find that it does moisturise really well but does need to be reapplied regularly, which isn't really a problem. It smells divine, with a soft vanilla scent which I absolutely love! Sometimes I just open it to smell it! (Yes, I am strange...). As the name suggests, it does have SPF15 which makes it the perfect staple summer lip balm. The packaging is really cool, with the standard cube cell shape of Elf's studio line. It is small enough to fit into your bag but a little too big to fit into your pocket.
If you want to buy this too, you can shop online from www.eyeslipsface.co.uk. This product costs £3.75, it is one of the more expensive products from Elf but I think it is 100% worth it! I can't wait to buy some more shades, I have my eye on 'Mellow Melon'! Though it comes in a large range of shades, from reds to browns. Happy shopping!
