So, today I wanted to tell you about a product from my little ELF haul I did last month. It's a lipstick from the $1 range -or should I say, the €1.70 range- in the shade Sociable. Now, I wasn't expecting much from such a cheap lipstick, but this disappointed me a bit.
The packaging is very, very simple. Nothing unpractical though! I really like the little 'window' that shows the colour of the lipstick. The label on the back is so small though, you can barely read the name there.
When I tried this for the first time, I thought it was made out of plastic. No joke. It felt like one of those fake lipsticks I used to have when I was a little girl. I have to say that after a few coats it actually started to slide on easily. It isn't creamy at the slightest and I bet it has no staying power.
Another thing that didn't make me happy was the shade - it looked so different from the swatch on the website, and it had sparkles in it as well! Even cheaper looking. It's not bad or anything, it's just not the one I wanted. I knew that it's a bit of a hit or miss with ELF, and I paid basically nothing for this product, so it's not much of a big deal.
I wouldn't recommend this exact lipstick, but I guess you could try for yourself and see if you like it. You get it for such a small price and maybe the other shades have a better formulation. If however you want a nicer lipstick from about the same price, I suggest you try the Mineral lipsticks, which I've liked so much better.
