Review: Elf Conditioning Lip Balm SPF 15

Hey Gals! Lately my lips have been really dry rough from the winter weather. I have been using lip gloss but we all know most lip glosses arent the best way to REALLY hydrate your lips. 
I have been researching some different brands of lip balms out there and I heard great things about ELFs new Lip Balms. They are pretty similar to NYXs lip balms but half the price. 
I went on their website and they have 6 shades available. All of them were pretty and all different from one another. They were only $3.00! How cheap!
This is their description on them on their website:

 "With the e.l.f. Conditioning Lip Balm, lips get treated to a sheer splash of color that’s super smooth, velvety soft and non-sticky. Not only are these sheer, natural shades beautiful, they’re also beneficial, with natural ingredients that condition dry, chapped lips including Vitamins A & E. SPF 15 to protect delicate lips against harmful sun damage"

I was sold and wanted to try them. I ended up ordering all of them!

When I opened my package from ELF, I was totally surprised how big they were. You get a lot of product in these containers! You get about 0.26 oz./7.5g.
I also really liked the packaging. They are kinda big for your makeup bag but for the amount of product you get, and the nice container, I dont care ;)

So I swatched all the colors and tried them on as soon as I got them. All I can say is that i LOVE them. There wasn't one color that I didnt like. They were sheer, creamy, but still had a lot of color for a lip balm. I used my finger to apply them but its kind of a tight fit for your finger. To apply these, I would probably use a lip brush. Way easier.  I also did notice a tingly feeling this balms gave off. Its a lip plumper feeling. So if you dont like those, you might not like these. I cant explain the scent. Smells almost fruity and sweet like a vanilla coconut.

Peaceful Pink, Romantic Rouge 

 Nice & Natural, Mellow Melon
 Blissful Berry, Bombshell Brown

Here are the swatches of all the colors

  1. Thanks for the swatches! I love these too! I don't feel the tingle or minty-ness that you do but it's okay... I wanna pick up Nice and Natural now :D

  2. I love the swatches! I just ordered Romantic Rouge. My sister told me about it and sent me a swatch of herself wearing it. I had to give it a try. I can't wait to try it out!
