ELF All Over Color Stick Review

Being in a very cute form and multi-purpose makes me want to explore more of ELF All Over Color Stick. Let’s see what ELF’s got to claim for this:

‘3 in 1 color for your eyes, lips, and or face! Get the color that illuminates for a healthy glow, and instantly soothes and conditions the skin for fresh and natural color all day long.’ – eyesfacelips.com

I have two shades, pink lemonade and lilac petal. The shape looks exactly like how it does from the web picture, however the actual shades are in shimmer. The content is very little compared from what you see from the web pic. It’s only half of the whole stick. It comes with a twist up form and my lilac petal looked a little wracked because there’s once I twisted the stick all the way up and it could not twist back in. That’s one thing I hate about this product, thank God I actually figured how to fix it back.

Now you get what I mean when I say shimmery? Look at how flashy it look like even without flash? The lilac petal shades comes out like a frosty light pink and pink lemonade comes out dark pink with a little purple undertone with it.

Although water is the first ingredient that is listed, I don’t think the product is moist enough for lips. It goes on feeling very dry but the product is very oily for face. The moist and oil is total different thing, don’t get it mixed up okay? I didn’t have any irritations from it so¬† the ingredients are fine with me.

My verdict:
I would say this product is not really suitable for oily skin types because it can be too oily and with the shimmer, it seems like the ‘oiliness’ that you don’t want to have. With this, I can’t even dare myself to apply the product on my eyelid. I only tried it for cheeks and lips. The shimmer is too much that doesn’t really gives you the glow. The stick is pigmented but physically its quite stiff, I had to use my finger to rub on top of the stick a few times to get the product and it doesn’t blend easily. The color doesn’t last on my face, maybe about 2-3 the maximum? The packaging is small and handy but the content is just too little.

PROs:

  • Pigmented
  • Cheap and affordable
  • Small and handy
  • Non-irritant

CONs:

  • Content is too little
  • Shimmery
  • Oily
  • Doesn’t last
  • Stiff
  • Not moisturizing enough
  • Twist-up function error when it comes to the end

My rating: 2/5

  1. haha
    no idea why but i never been interested in this.
    but i was pretty interested in the all over cover stick thou.
    wonder if its a good concealer.
    the tone correcting concealer sucks!

  2. That’s why I generally dont like all over color anythings. It’s too dry or oily for some areas. Too bad those, the colors are gorgeous! I would probably end up only using it for blush.

  3. @LyNn – Haha, maybe there’s something bad you already see in it? Hrmph, better check on the review first before you get them. Don’t be wasted like me. The tone correcting concealer sucks? Why? I’m looking for oil control makeup base. Any suggestion?

    @Dee – Maybe I’m a little lazy or something, tend to wear it alone without powdering it. Oh thanks so much dear. I’ll look up to it.

    @Shinbi_Belldandy – But I do love things with multi-purpose. Haha, one thing that does plenty of jobs, just like multi-tasking. I still prefer to use powder blush though.
