As promised at the beginning of my first 'Getting Lippy With Elf' post, here is a post dedicated to E.L.F's lip glossy-type products, which I couldn't talk about before because it would have made the post way too long.
Unlike with E.L.F's lipsticks, I find that it's a bit hit and miss with E.L.F's lip glosses, and sometimes I like them but sometimes I don't.
So, here is my mini-review of the E.L.F lip gloss products that I've tried.
E.L.F Mineral Lip Gloss

I love the packaging of these lip glosses, they really remind me of MAC's packaging.
However, the colour pay off isn't that good because they're quite sheer and, to be honest, both colours above look pretty much the same on my lips.
Although, they do go on really nicely and stay put longer than some of the other glosses that I own.
In my opinion, these glosses would suit someone who wants to add a subtle sheen to their lips, not someone who is after a more dramatic look.
E.L.F Luscious Liquid Lipstick

Although I disagree that these are anything other than lip glosses, I really like them.
I really like 'Cherry Tarts' because the colour pay off is good, it smells minty, it has a really glossy finish and it's not too sticky.
The only difference between the two glosses above is that the colour pay off of 'Perfect Pink' isn't as good as 'Cherry Tarts', which is a bit of a bummer.
I do find these glosses to be a little thick, and they do feel a little heavy on my lips, but you can't really go wrong for £1.50!!
E.L.F Plumping Lip Glaze

I'm not too keen on lip plumpers because I don't really like how they feel on my lips.
However, I do like this one by E.L.F because it's bearable borderline pleasant - I know, I'm weird!!
I wasn't too keen on the colour when I first got it, but it has kind of grown on me now.
What I like about this lip product is that the colour pay off is great, it isn't thick or sticky, it doesn't feel totally unpleasant on the lips and it smells minty but the smell is quite subtle.
E.L.F Super Glossy Lip Shine SPF 15

I'm not a massive fan of these because I don't like how they go onto my lips, the packaging sucks and I just think they're a little thick.
They don't look so bad if I rub them onto my lips with my finger, but I don't always want to get my hands dirty applying it.
However, they do feel quite light on the lips, which I like, and they only have a subtle flavour - a bonus for someone like me who often licks lip gloss that tastes delicious off my lips - I blame my diet!!
E.L.F Studio Glossy Gloss

I'm not a massive fan of this lip product either.
I like the colour and I love the packaging, but I don't like the applicator one bit!!
The applicator, I feel, makes it difficult to apply this gloss evenly onto the lips, which means you need to even it out with either your finger or a lip brush - so not convenient.
I was quite disappointed with this lip gloss and I hardly use it anymore.
E.L.F Hypershine Lip Gloss
|E.L.F Hypershine Lip Gloss - (Left - Right) * 'Bubblegum' * 'Flirt' *|
|E.L.F Hypershine Lip Gloss - (Top - Bottom) * 'Bubblegum' * 'Flirt' *|
I find that it's hit and miss with these lip glosses.
I loveee 'Flirt', but I can't seem to get on with 'Bubblegum' because it goes on streaky and unevenly.
'Flirt' goes onto my lips really nicely, giving them just a hint of colour and moisturising them at the same time.
Plus, they've got a delicious minty taste, which I absolutely love.
