Product Description: Now you can hydrate your lips and get a lasting soft color naturally! This nourishing blend of exotic oils, natural waxes, vitamins and plant extracts create the perfect moisturizing formula. The sleek lipstick has superior color payoff, glides easily onto lips, and is long wearing. Lips stay perfectly hydrated and soft throughout the day for no fuss, lip loving happiness. All our mineral makeup is 100% mineral based with no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes.

I've said many times how much I love lippies right? I've been waiting for a long time for E.L.F Mineral Lipsticks to arrive here because I've been curious about them. Well, finally I bought myself one and tried it.

Contrary to most mineral lippies, this is packaged like most traditional lipsticks in the market. Trying it out, I had no problems. It's non-sticky, non-greasy, and long-lasting enough. After a meal, there is still a good amount of product left, but of course, still needs some retouching.

The color I bought is called Ripe Rose, and it's a very wearable shade of red. I only use a light layer, though, because I want a lighter color.

Here's a picture of me wearing a light layer of Ripe Rose (the light is a little bright here):



The main con? It's only $5 in the US but is P400 (around $8) here in the Philippines. That more than a 50% increase, but there's a lot product in this lippie, much like regular lipsticks.

Will I buy this again? Well, it will take me forever to finish one up, but I'll buy again if I find another color I like.
