e.l.f., which stands for Eyes Lips Face, is a company that focuses on value in cosmetics. They offer a huge variety of items that are good quality, but surprisingly low in price. I have used various e.l.f. lip products in the past and am a bit of a fan, so when they asked me to write about them, I was more than happy to do so.
In terms of lip gloss, e.l.f. Super Glossy Lip is a great value gloss. This tube gloss is a standard gloss that gives high shine and applies easily. A number of the shades are lightly scented and flavored (vanilla grape), which I prefer over unflavored simply because it seems like tube lip glosses can often get a bit of a chemical taste to them when not flavored. The best thing about e.l.f gloss though is the price. It is $1. Yep, a buck! And it is perfectly comparable to drugstore glosses that cost $5 or more each.
Also popular are the Hypershine lip glosses. I have not personally tried these, but have a friend who uses them and is quite happy with them. These are glosses with a built in brush. Gloss is twisted/clicked up into the brush for easy application. Like the super glossy, they are only $1 each. Alternately, you can get a set of 5 for $5, which would also make a great gift.
e.l.f. also offers mineral lip gloss. I am a fan of mineral gloss, mainly because it tends to provide good color without getting too sticky, but yet also moisturizes and shine.e.l.f mineral gloss gives a sheer tint and includes Coconut Oil and vitamins A and E to protect and moisturize your lips. It does not include parabens. User reviews of it are quite good. At $3 for a tube, it is the best value in mineral lip gloss that you can find. I am not aware of any more affordable mineral glosses and, based on my other experiences with e.l.f., I assume that the quality is as good as most drugstore quality brands. But a mineral gloss in the other brands will normally cost at least twice as much.
Overall, take a look at e.l.f. for great value lip products. It is hard to beat a buck a piece for lip gloss!
