Review: ELF Lip Balm Tint Peach

ELF lip balm tint peach pot

This was a product from a haul of ELF goodies I bought a few weeks ago, so the rest of the reviews will be up shortly. I'm not going to lie, I was left really disappointed with the lip balm. I got the shade Peach and it’s not very pigmented at all. When I swatch it on my hand I can see the color, but when I put it on my lips it doesn't really show. This is a shame as when viewed in the pot (below), the colour is really striking!

"This lightly tinted lip balm gives the perfect flush of colour for a beautiful, natural look. The Coconut, Grape, Shea Butter and Rice Wax infused formula conditions lips on contact for long-lasting, hydrating comfort."

This product is moisturising, however extremely gooey and sticky. But hydrating comfort? No. I don't think I can bring myself to continue using the product which seems a bit of a waste, but I much prefer my lip balm from The Body Shop! This peach balm's RRP is £2.50 at ELF, but the strawberry lip balm from The Body Shop is priced at just £2, so price wise it is better too.

The thing that bothers me the most about this product is the taste. It has a very strong and artificial sweet taste, and I hate it. I wish this had a different or no taste to it, because then maybe I would like it more. If things like that don’t bother you then by all means give it a whirl. However, if you’re sensitive to flavoring in lip products then skip this.
My final verdict on this is pretty negative sad to say. I wish it was more pigmented and I hate the taste of it. I'm glad it didn't cost me anymore than a couple of pounds, but I won’t be repurchasing.

Have you tried these lip balm tints before?

  4. It looks like such a lovely shade, what a shame it wasn't what you were expecting! It's always so disappointing when that happens, even when it is a cheap product :/

    1. It was a shame :( I'd rather give my honest opinion though than trying to pass it off as a gem! :)
