e.l.f. Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Baby Lips

$1.00 for 0.05 oz/1.5g
Yet again, EyesLipsFace shocks me with a value I really didn't expect from $1.  It's as if I literally forget how much I love a lot of e.l.f. products and sit in Target (or at the computer) thinking "oh, I don't need to be spending a dollar, or three, on ____" when it should be clear to me now that, um, yeah, it's totally worth it!

My initial worry was mainly the applicator at the tip of this lipstick. It is a little difficult to put my finger on why I thought the applicator would be tricky, but I think it's about the same reason I hesitate in getting too many Hypershine Glosses at the same time--hygiene and germs. The applicator does sit relatively exposed underneath the cap instead of being a pull-out wand (I have no source to say that either is more hygienic). This mostly poses problems for makeup artists and the use of this on more than one person; for personal use, I see nothing wrong.

Some really wonderful things about Luscious Liquid Lipstick are that this formula lasts about 2-3 hours, unless drinking/eating, it has a high-shine finish without being too tacky/sticky, and it gives medium coverage with good pigmentation. Baby Lips is a blue-based pink with a white-shine and a gentle shimmer that doesn't always show up on the lips. It glides on smooth and can be applied both sheerly and heavily for more/less pigmentation. It does feel slightly hydrating to the lips, but this feeling is nothing ultra-significant. My lips could still use some more exfoliation and moisture, but that is more what bedtime is for than daytime wear...

Final verdict: why do I not have MORE of these?! Although you get a less-than-average amount of product, it's still only costing you one dollar, and this also means you stand a better chance of finishing the whole product by the time it's suppose to "expire." Do look for a specific color to suit you if you are not into buying a bunch of these, however, because there are certainly no returns on this type of product with it's packaging....but I guess I have also never tried. Let me know if you've had success with that....
