E.L.F Essential Lip Stain Review

RATING : 8.3 OUT OF 10

There are four different varieties of shades of E.L.F Essential Lip Stain like crimson crush which is red, nude nectar which is a beautiful neutral light wash with a tint of pink, berry blush- an eye catching smooth deep berry color and pink petal which is bubble-gum pink color.

Claims of the company: The Company describes it as color with beautiful precision that lasts for hours and pigment rich. The pen-like tip allows easy application of color as streak and gives a smudge free professional look. The E.L.F Essential Lip Stain has nourishing vitamin E that hydrates and moisturizes your lips

Price: This elf lip stain costs $2 for 0.078 oz/2.2 g

Application life: E.L.F Essential Lip Stain does not last long and fades in about 3-4 hours and needs re-application. The color fades from the center of lips first then goes towards the outer edge. The stain lasts long when used with lip balm or gloss.

Ingredients: The main ingredients are water, propylene glycol, PVP, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, sodium lactate, 1,2-hexanediol, lactic acid, tocopherol, methyparaben, ehtylparaben, butylparaben, propylparaben, isobutylparaben. It may also contain differents coring agents in red, yellow and blue

Packaging: The style of packaging is like a marker and comes in a plastic tube like a pen with a snap-on cap. The applicator of E.L.F Essential Lip Stain is pointed and the plastic is softer than its rival products.

Scent/tasteless: The product is odorless and tasteless

Pros of the product: The E.L.F Essential Lip Stain has good pigmentation and dries down quickly and does not transfer out or smudge or rub off the lips.  The colors are bright and nice looking. The marker tip is small enough to suit any lip shape and helps with precise application but takes a longer time to apply and get an even finish.

Cons of the product: Have to do multiple coats to bring out the color of E.L.F Essential Lip Stain and the color fades.  It also makes the lips a bit tad dry and so a gloss or lip balm is required. It gives an uneven finish and patchy texture.
