Today I will be reviewing another elf lipstick product.
I initially tried out elf’s studio mineral lipsticks and wasn’t 100% in love with them.
I purchased two lipsticks from their studio moisturizing lipstick line and hoped I would like them better.
Available in 22 shades.
I purchased Rosy-Go-Round and Ravishing Rose
(left to right: Rosy-Go-Round, Ravishing Rose)
The velvety, satin texture glides on lips with vibrant color and luminous shine. Enriched with Shea and Vitamins A, C & E to nourish and hydrate the lips. The rich, creamy formula seals in moisture for long-lasting wear and comfort.
Right off the bat, I like the packaging of the moisturizing lipsticks better than the mineralized. It feels more sturdy, yet still lightweight.
The packaging is also slightly thinner and shorter than the mineralized lipsticks which may make it easier to store.
Another added bonus is you can see the shade on the bottom of the moisture lipsticks unlike the mineralized lipsticks. I love being able to choose a shade without having to open up the lipstick.

The lasting power is about the same as the mineralized lipsticks. Yet, I love the finish and formula of this lipstick! I find it more moisturizing and more creamy and smooth than the mineralized formula.
And even when the product starting to wear away (which was around hour 4/5), my lips still felt moisturized and there was a subtle hint of color left on my lips.
These also have a much nicer smell. It has a faint sweet scent (maybe vanilla?) that is so yummy!!!
These are slightly more pigmented than the mineralized lipsticks so I definitely like that!
It is still a somewhat sheer formulation, but is easily buildable.
If you couldn’t tell by now….I LOVE the moisturizing lipstick line!!!!
It definitely trumps the mineralized (in my book) and is less expensive too!
Plus, Elf has released some new shades for Fall and I am dying to try those out!!!
So I am planning on purchasing more!! 🙂
Wishing you a beautiful and wonderful day!
