Elf is definitely a hit or miss brand with me. I have tried a wide range of their products now, and I would have to say that these Glossy Glosses are my favorite product that Elf has to offer! These smooth, vibrant glosses are a huge steal at only $3 a piece!
Swatches from left to right: Funky Fuschia, Wild watermelon, and Merry Cherry
Pigmentation: Excellent, these shades give opaque color in just one swipe!
Finish/Texture:The gloss does have a bit of a sticky feel to it, but they glide on smoothly and evenly even if you're lips aren't in the best condition. They also feel very moisturizing!
Scent: There is a slight sweet scent of vanilla/sugar in each gloss. Not too strong or overpowering at all, and it doesn't linger throughout the day.
Lasting Power: Since these are a bit sticky, they have strong last power. I don't even need to reapply this gloss during my day, unless I eat or drink.
Packaging: The applicator is a standard brush, you can see a photo of it here. The square shape of the acrylic plastic is quite nice for a drugstore lip gloss.
Price/Availability: $3 at elfcosmetics.com I have never seen these at Target, unfortunately.

I recently ordered more shades during the Cyber Monday sale, and I can't wait to get them! These Glossy Gloss shades are all bright, rich, and opaque. They look fantastic alone and layered over lipstick. My favorite thing about them is that they last all day, and are unbelievably creamy for only $3. The elf website states that these Glossy Glosses are Vitamin E infused, and I really do feel the moisture. Ever since I bought these (cue the music) I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough!
