e.l.f. Lippies

You know, I've always said that I don't have a favorite drugstore makeup brand & that there are several brands with products I love. While that may be true to some extent, as I look over my makeup collection & look through my wishlist I notice that there are many e.l.f. products among both categories.

I love e.l.f.! Yes, they have their hits & misses like any brand, but they do have a lot of hits. I thought today I'd focus on some e.l.f. lippies on my wishlist.

e.l.f. Essentials lipstick - $1: I already have 2 of these in classy (natural pink) & posh (deep maroon). As I mentioned in a previous post, the packaging is sucky, particularly the fact that the lipstick doesn't screw down all the way. However, the lipstick formula itself is good w/nice pigmentation. I want to get it in the following shades shown in the image: Nostalgic (nude), Fantasy (deeper nude), & Flirtatious (color not as pictured, it's more of a bubblegum/barbie pink). See some swatches here.

e.l.f. Essential Super Glossy Lipshine - $1: I already have these in Pink Kiss & Watermelon & I love 'em both! They're smooth, not tacky, have good coverage for a gloss, & a gorgeous pearly shimmer. I want to get this in Mauve Luxe & Goddess. :)

e.l.f. Mineral Lipstick - $5: I've heard much about these. How they go on smoothly & are moisturizing & what great pigmented shades they come in. I've especially heard a lot about Runway Pink & how it's the perfect everyday/neutral pink. I so want to try it!

e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Color - $3: I've been wanting to try this one for a while. From what I hear, it's matte w/o being drying. That's a major issue w/me, since I'm dry enough as it is. I've also heard that they're nicely pigmented. I want to try this in Natural & Tea Rose.

What e.l.f. products are you loving? Got any favorites? Do share! :)
