E.L.F Haul (Lipsies)

I have another haul today, yay!! I will be splitting it into two part as want to be somewhat detailed. I did a "First Impressions" type video with the products, took some swatches and slightly tested the products. This first post is on the lip products from the haul.
Disclaimer: All product descriptions were taken from www.eyeslipsface.com however, all opinions are my own. These products were not sent to me, but bought with my own money.


Luscious Liquid Lipstick: Baby Lips, Bark
"Lip therapy is here! Intensive hydrating agents along with natural pigments leave lips with long-lasting color and moisture. This luscious liquid lipstick creates wearable color that flatters a multitude of skin tones and looks." 
These lip glosses feel very moisturising and nourishing to the lips and have a slight peppermint scent.


Baby Lips is a shimmery light baby pink, way lighter than shown on the website and I definitely wasn't expecting the shimmer either, but it's nice as it isn't too much glitter and it is not chunky at all.
Bark is a pink with undertones and has no shimmer, again not as dark as the e.l.f. website had shown.


Lip Swatches:


e.l.f. Studio Lip Primer and Plumper:
"Achieve longer lasting lip color and sexy plumped lips. The Primer creates a base for lip color for no budge, no smudge pigment that lasts all day. The cinnamon scented Plumper enhances your lips with a subtle plumping tingle effect for fuller, larger looking lips."
The lip primer on this product is yet to be put to the test as I tried it on and them put lip gloss over it, which was just pointless and a mess, it was gross. I was going to take picture of the lip gloss over it, but really as I have said, there was no point. This needs to be tested with a lipstick.
The lip plumper stung! I thought it was ok at first, then it was getting worse and woah, I have such a low pain tolerance. But it does smell goos, and has a slight cinnamon taste, much like a Big Red chewing gum. I'm sure this is probably not the worse stinging  from a lip plumper out there but for a first experience I have to say it was a  bit scary. I don't really think my lips were than much plumped after, but it did make for a good lip balm.


e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balm SPF 15
"With the e.l.f. Conditioning Lip Balm, lips get treated to a sheer splash of color that’s super smooth, velvety soft and non-sticky. Not only are these sheer, natural shades beautiful, they’re also beneficial, with natural ingredients that condition dry, chapped lips including Vitamins A & E. SPF 15 to protect delicate lips against harmful sun damage."
This product gave me quite the surprise, for one, I wasn't expecting such a large jar (and cute too), and secondly, this is highly pigmented, like the same or maybe even more than the Luscious Liquid Lipsticks are. It also feels very smooth and moisturising on my lips. You can definitely skip out on lipstick if you just want something nice and breezy for summer and pick this up instead.

Lip Swatches:

I did not take pictures of the e.l.f. Essential Therapeutic Conditioning Lip Balm, but it has a similar texture to the conditioning lip balm. I bought vanilla and as expected, it smells slightly of vanilla, also feels moisturising.

That's all for this post!

XOXO
