ELF Hypershine Lip Gloss

These are such an iconic ELF product, they are old school ELF and I picked up 3 a few months ago.
Top to Bottom: Bubble gum, Fairy, Joy
ELF say these are sheer glosses with a super glossy finish.
They are definitely sheer, although this does vary depending on the colour you get. As you can see from the swatches Bubble gum comes out with a slight peach/coral tint to it whereas both Fairy and Joy appear to both be clear with the slightest hint of shimmer in them. Although typically I prefer a more pigmented gloss I do find these come in handy for when I want a more natural look or just a simple gloss.
I wouldn't say these are the most glossy glosses I have ever used, they are average. For me this isn't a bad thing, I tend to find if a gloss is too glossy it just feels greasy and slippery but these are super comfortable and not sticky, they also last fairly well which is nice.

I enjoy the packaging, it's simple but effective.
I don't think its cheap looking, and I think the brush applicator is perfect - it's soft but the bristles are still sturdy enough to not fray out.
So far the writing is going strong, but I can imagine that it will start chipping off at some point.

I think these are perfect if you are just starting with makeup because these are fuss free, cheap and smell good.
I also think they would be a good staple to have in your handbag.

Hope you enjoyed my review

Me Now Generation Long Lasting Lip Glosses

First things first, these are not lip glosses by any means.
Although they are called lip glosses they are in fact liquid lipsticks with a matte finish 
 
In all the photos the glosses are in numerical order - 1, 8, 9, 12, 15, 16, 17, 18, 25, 26, 36 - from left to right, top to bottom.

In total there are 36 shades so it's more than likely that there is a shade for everyone.
Although they dry matte, in the tube some look to have shimmer or frost in them, but this doesn't show on your lips.   
 
 
 
The packaging I love, it reminds me of test tubes and I just think it's super cute. I have found on a couple that the plastic 'stick' (I don't know what it's called) that the applicator is on doesn't feel quite secure in the lid so when applying them they feel a little wobbly.
Their formulation for the most part is fairly thick, and this allows for a clean, opaque coat of colour. Whoever some have a thinker consistency which makes application harder because the colour doesn't apply smoothly and ends up looking patchy.
They are not the most comfortable thing to wear, their a little drying and ball up if you run your lips together, b it their staying power is amazing and they look stunning.
For just £1 from Ebay these are great and I would with out a doubt say you need to try them if you love a matte lip, a touch of lip balm is all you need underneath to make them more comfortable.

Talk to you soon
