I recently shared a sneak peak of the e.l.f. 2016 holiday makeup collections, and while I was at that event, I was given a new product that I've fallen in love with
e.l.f Day to Night Lipstick Duo contains two miniature lipsticks that are so pigmented and creamy I was completely (and pleasantly) surprised.
The duo I tried was the Red Hot Reds (shown above, and left), and both shades are pretty and flattering to most skin tones. They're easy reds that have enough warmth/coolness and pink/berry tones that they work, just as described, for both day and night.
The finish is a semi-matte, and they are hydrating all day long. I loved using the day and night shades, respectively, but I also mixed two reds and flipped the night shade for day and vice versa, depending on my mood. Tip: I only wind the lipsticks up a little to apply, as if you wind them up all the way, they can sometimes feel a bit wobbly in the tube.
The staying power was also very impressive - even with eating drinking, I didn't have to touch up until late in the afternoon when there was some fading.
The lipsticks left my lips smooth and sooth, and there was no flaking, bleeding or smudging. Just a few swipes of the lipstick were enough to get the opaque shade in the tube.
The packaging is very cute and convenient too. This is coming with me on all my summer travels and for only $6, I encourage you to get a few in various shades while they're in stock! - RLB
