ELF is one of my favorite drug store brands. I’m usually never unsatisfied with their prodcuts and haven’t had an issue with them until now. I don’t use lipstains but I decieded to get one since in the summer time I prefer to wear more lightweight makeup. Recently, I’ve purchased two ELF lip stains. One in the color ‘Crimson Crush’ and ‘Pink Petal.’ When I tried ‘Crimson Crush’ it wasn’t what I expected. It worked out perfectly fine at first, however, I had to keep reapplying it to get an even distribuation. There was a little bit of flaking and it transfers while eating. I like lipstains to be..well.. lipstains. I want them to stain my lips so I don’t have to reapply them continuously throughout the day and I don’t like them to transfer. If I wanted to keep touching up a lipproduct throughout the day I would stick to a lipstick or lipgloss. Now, let me tell you what had happened when I tried out the other color in ‘Pink Petal.’ I’ve never been so disappointed in a product before. When I tried out ‘Pink Petal’ it didn’t work! I was confused at first so I tried to swatch it on my hand and nothing appeared. I tried it on a tissue and nothing happened. I had to keep using force to get just a tiny bit of product out.
Comeon’ ELF! What gives?!
