Review: E.L.F Essential EX-tra Lip Gloss!

New Glosses For Only $2!

ELF Essential EX-tra Lip Gloss
The Essential's line from Eyes Lips Face is stepping up their game! This line is coming out with new products that are turning out to be really great, comparable to the their Studio Line. The Essential EX-tra Lip Gloss comes in six beautiful shades, each priced at $2. I ordered three of them and I really enjoyed these!
ELF claims that these are ultra smooth and rich in color which is actually the best way to describe them! The are loaded with so many ingredients like Vitamin A&E, Cocoa Butter, Avocado and Grape to keep your lips moisturized throughout the day. These feel really nice on, very smooth and hydrating without lacking on the color payoff. With just two swipes the color you see in the tube is exactly the color you'll have on. For the most part these are all cream finishes, they do have micro shimmers infused in them but they're barely visible. They add just a little "umph" to make your lips look fuller! I really stray sway from lip products with shimmers but these don't bother me at all, you can't feel the shimmers when you wear it. Here are the swatches:

From left to right:
*Marc- a neutral pink, really wearable!
*Joe- a coral, this one was a bit patchy but still a beautiful color.
*Michael- a wine, my favorite color! Looks great and its not too vampy.
Now lets take a moment to acknowledge the cute names! They all have guy names, so unique! And the brush is also really great. It's not your typical brush, in the first pic above you can see what the brush looks like. It's perfect for applying the gloss and for precision! Out of the colors that chose I would for sure recommend Michael! I've been wearing it non stop and I've received so many compliments!

Bottom line: Make sure to give these a try! They're not in store yet since its a brand new product but you can always order from They're not sticky at all and they feel amazing on! The lasting power is about 3 hours which is about average for a gloss. I like these better than the ELF Studio Glosses. I plan on purchasing the rest of the colors. :-)
