E.L.F. Mineral Moisturising Lip Tint SPF 8 in Berry Review

I was ordering some bits on E.L.F. a month or so ago and I decided to try out their new Mineral Moisturising Lip Tint from the Studio line which is £3.50.  I thought that it may be similar to the infamous Revlon Lip Butters, although I don't actually own any so I can't compare them!

I got mine in the shade Berry - I tend to be drawn to things which have that name!  First of all, I was really quite impressed with the pigmentation.  My lips are a very strong colour naturally (may sound good but it's the bane of my life!) and it was pretty much opaque!  I only got the one colour so I can't say whether or not it is the same for the other shades.  They smell really good, however they actually taste horrible!  Obviously you're not supposed to eat them but while wearing something on your lips it's usually going to find a way into your mouth!

Overall I did like this product however I would not use it as a moisturising 'balm', I found it really didn't do much for me on that front.  It wasn't drying but I definitely didn't find it particularly moisturising either.  So I like this as a lipstick which is semi-moisturising rather than a moisturising product with a tint - if that makes any sense at all!!  I won't be buying any more of these I don't think, just because none of the other colours really take my fancy, but I do enjoy this one!

Sorry for the dodgy photos, these were all taken under different lighting conditions - rookie mistake!  Hopefully my photography skills will improve as time goes on haha...

  6. FYI: I contacted E.L.F. and they weren't able to provide me with a fixed cut-off date for themselves or their suppliers. Unless you have that, they are not cruelty-free.
