ELF Minty Lip Gloss; New Shades: San Diego, Houston, Chicago

Elf Minty Lip Gloss is a new one for me – part of the slightly more expensive studio line. Minty lip gloss comes in a very sleek long tube that reminds me of Nars/Chanel’s packaging. When you get it in your hands it feels a lot lighter but to look at, it’s chic for something that costs just £3.50.

They say:

The sheer glossy color conditions lips with a minty fresh taste. Can be worn alone or layered with other lip products. Give your lips a beautiful sheen and freshen your breath for instant gratification.

I have three shades, San Diego, Houston and Chicago.

These remind me of one of my favourite glosses, Chanel’s Big Bang – a sheer red with hundreds of gorgeous sparkles.

Sparkles is the word. All tinselly, sparkly…

On my hand, there seems to be a good amount of pigment and sparkle. San Diego is a sheer red with gold sparkle, Houston is a cool toned pink with silver sparkle, Chicago is gold with gold sparkle.

I adore multi-dimensional sparkle on my lip but it has to be amazingly twinkly on my lips in the light, but not so obvious when not. Like this lip gloss.

You can see the lip gloss is a lot sheerer on the lips that in the tube and swatched on the hand, so bear this in mind. The sparkle shows up rather prettily; like I said earlier I prefer more multi dimensional sparkle, this is more controlled and one dimensional; good for those who are a little scared of sparkles but want some twinkle (ok, so I’m in fairy mode today!).

The texture is nice, medium thick, hydrating and glossy. It is indeed quite minty but in a refreshing way. not in a burning uncomfortable way – just makes you feel like you have a fresh mouth!
