e.l.f. Essential Lipstick Review and Demo

Salam & Hello Beautylish People
Hope you all having a nice day so far

Today's review is going to be about the e.l.f. Essential Lipstick

A while ago I was on YouTube and I saw one of the beauty gurus talking about these lipstick and how good they're, and the surprising part it was only $1
I heard that and I was like "okay" paused the video then went right away on the ELF website and I just ordered it right away.

Now before I get into details lets see the website description as usual
Indulge your lips with long lasting color and shine. The moisture rich formula hydrates, conditions and softens on contact for silky smooth lips. Instantly beautiful, healthy-looking lips designed, formulated and tested by our professional team of makeup artists.Also this lipstick comes in 11 shades, and retails for $1.00!

Okay, so far this sounds good and I have to say that I have a mixed feeling about the description cause I can not agree with all of it and I will mention In a little bit why.

From the 11 shades, I choose 2 of them.
First, Charming 

Charming is a nude-pink color that I've been obsessed with it since the day I got it and I've been wearing it none stop. It is simply perfect color for everyday uses, and I believe it will look good on any skin color.
I highly recommend it.

Swatches۰ • ●
On my lips in the "natural light" picture, it looks more pink, but in reality it looks same as in the flash light and the swatches.

The second one I choose is Sociable 

Sociable is more as a red tone color with a hint of pink. I absolutely love this color and for the first time I found lipstick with that color,that doesn't make me look weird or make my teeth looks yellow.
(That happened many times before when I buy a dark lipstick with the wrong undertone..not really a good feeling)

Swatches۰ • ●
As you can see it is not the darkest red color which is perfect cause If you wore it on a day time it wont look as harsh as a true red lipstick.
Demo۰ • ●
Now lets talk about more details

▪ Affordable
▪ Moisturizing
▪ Great Pigmentation
▪ Good color selection

▪ Doesn't have a good lasting power

Overall, I'm truly in love with this lipsticks and I can see myself repurchasing it again and again.
You get a good selection of colors that will compliment all skin tones, it is so pigmented and affordable! I mean come on it is only $1! it can't get any better. The only thing I don't like that it doesn't have a good lasting power like it will stay for almost 2 hours, on the other hand Sociable stayed on my lips longer than Charming, so not all of them are the same. With that being said, since the day I've got them I've been only using both of them. When ever I need to wear a lipstick I see my self reaching for one of them and mostly Charming cause I've been really enjoying it for day to day basis.

▪ Will I repurchase them??
Yes I will.

▪ Will I recommend it??
Absolutely, everyone should try this! 

Best Wishes!~
