e.l.f. Lip Gloss and Mineral Gloss

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 hypershine lip glosse.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!

Elf Cosmetics Lip Gloss

Lip gloss is one of those products that can be quite nice at a very affordable price. Yes, there are some wonderful expensive ones as well, but you don’t have to spend a fortune for a decent gloss.

At e.l.f. cosmetics, most products are only $1 each. That allows for a whole lot of makeup for very little money!

E.l.f. also offers some great lip product sets. One of my favorites is the ultra cute Hypershine Mini Cell Phone Lip Gloss Charms. The little lip gloss charms can be changed in and out, and at only $5, this is one heck of a deal! I have also seen this set at Target.

Another nice set is the Hypershine Gloss Box Set of 8. This give you 8 glosses at $1 each. The hypershine glosses remind me quite a bit of Bonne Belle glosses, but with a bit more color. Or take a look at the Super Glossy Lip Shine SPF Box Set of 5.
E.l.f. offers a wide range of other lip products and general cosmetics. Outside of a few of the lip glosses, I haven’t tried a large amount of them, but at the cheap prices, I plan to get more. I will report back when I do!
