Haul + E.l.f. Lipstick Classy

sobota, marec 12, 2011

I bought a couple of nail polishes this week. Both are from Essence, one is called Just Shout!, which is a orange-coral shade, the other is Choose Me!, which is a teal with shimmer. Swatches of Make Up Factory's lipstick will be posted shorty, but here are swatches of E.l.f.'s lipstick in the shade Classy, which my cousin gave to me (she dislikes the shade and feels a bit intimidated by a bit brighter colours :) )

Classy is a dark mauve pink with a mat finish. It's very thick (something like Barry M's lipstick), but it doesn't apply patchy. It's very pigmented, it stained my hand a little when I swatched it, so it is quite long lasting. It has a very sweet fruity-berry scent but mixed with plastic. The packaging looks very cheap and is of poor quality. If I compare them to Essence, which is in the same price range, E.l.f. one's are more opaque and last longer on the lips, the packaging of the Essence lipsticks is better and I still prefer them to E.l.f. one's. These cost 1,7 €. The swatch I made is very accurate, but bear in mind I'm very pale, so it might look lighter on you.
Classy je temnejše roza barve z kar nekaj vijola tonov, ima mat finiš. To ni ena izmed lahko mazljivh šmink, vseeno pa se da lepo nanesti (v primerjavi z naprimer Barry M-ovo 147, ki je podobne teksture). Je zelo pigmentirana in kar precej obstojna. Ima nekakšen zelo sladek sadno-malinast vonj pomešan s plastiko. Embalaža je strašno zanič in izgleda slabo narejeno. Če jih primerjam z šminkami od Essence, so E.l.f.-ove bolj pigmentirane in bolj obstojne, ampak Essencove imajo boljšo embalažo in manj vsiljiv vonj, osebno so mi šminke od Essence bolj všeč.  E.l.f. šminke stanejo 1,7 €. Swatch zgoraj je precej dober, na meni izgleda tako temno. Vseeno pa imejte v mislih, da sem zelo svetla, tako da morda na vas ne bo izgledala tako temno.
