I had a few requests for do a follow up with some swatches on the e.l.f Minty Lipgloss. The shade I have is Houston.
A closer look at the shimmery particles…
On the lips it’s a sheer pink shade with a touch of Magenta. The colour in the tube had me all excited but that’s not how it goes on the lips. It does keep a hint of the colour however.
This gloss actually wears quite well, better than most of the cheaper lip glosses I own. I didn’t touch up for a few hours. Admittedly I wasn’t eating or drinking during this time but I was talking a lot and that usually stretches a gloss too far.
Consistency wise, it’s not too sticky and it’s not sheer, it’s in the middle somewhere which is great.
I like the minty smell and taste – I know that you’re not supposed to ingest it, it happened by accident. I swear!)
Overall it’s a nice gloss and definitely worth the price tag . But if you get excited by the colour in the tube you may be a little disappointed.
On another note, if elf had been around when I was in school I would have wanted everything they sell. This gloss would be perfect for those on a budget who want something pretty and sheer.
I would happily use this gloss over a pink lipstick for added dimension. In fact, I’m off to try that now!
