Elf Mineral Lipstick (Party Pink & Pouty Petal)

*Some photos were from yesterday's post but there's no way I'm putting all these photos together in one post lol

Being a lipstick lover and an Elf freak, how could I not buy the Elf lipsticks? I found the mineral ones to look so classy so I decided to buy some. There were so many colours to choose from but the swatches I found online seemed pretty similar for the colours I wanted so I settled with these 2 : Party Pink & Pouty Petal.


I was so excited when I got my parcel and immediately searched for the lipsticks. I opened Party Pink first and guess what? The lipstick was stuck in the cover and it fell out =_=" So I had to push it back into the base and clean up the mess. The Elf logo + wordings for Party Pink were also faded. Figured it was old stock.

Now, Pouty Petal


First photo taken without flash, while the rest are with flash. As you can see, it's a pretty dark pink.


And then I decided to do something stupid. Make faces and post them on my blog. Wow! what a great idea! >_<"

Hmm.. / Thinking

Lol I hope I didn't scare you with the last photo. These lenses are really big..

Party Pink was much creamier than Pouty Petal. I guess being old stock also meant softer lipstick? I almost couldn't get any colour out of Pouty Petal at first because it was so solid. Comparing the colours, I like Party Pink better. Some days, it looks really pink (but wearable) but on other days it has a hint of coral in it. It depends on the colour of my lips. Pouty Petal is a pink colour. I wish it was brighter though, like how it looks like with flash. Both colours are matte and quite creamy. They're not very moisturising but not very drying either.

There's no colour indicator on the top and I am certainly not going to store this upside down after the lipstick-falling-out-of-the-tube incident. However, since I only have 2 and the Party Pink has a faded logo, it's quite easy to differentiate them in the box where I keep them.

Size : 3.8 g
Price : RM 14 / $5
Bought from : Elf Cosmetics (via mandyl from LowYat.net)
Made in China

Pros : Recyclable, wide range of shades, creamy
Cons : Inaccurate colours on website, a lil pricey compared to other Elf lipsticks
My conclusion : I'm okay with wearing these but I would prefer more moisturising lipsticks. They make nice gifts since the packaging is kinda nice. Colours on website are so inaccurate, it makes choosing the right shade tough.
