Hello everyone! When it comes to lipstick topic, I believe most of women will be so excited to talk about it! Since I have quite numerous lip products recently (not as many as yours, yes.. you! :p :p Just admit it. LOL), I wish I can find a lips product that can makes my lipstick last longer, so I don't need to reapply it too often. Sounds impossible?
Well, it's been more than a year since I talk about ELF cosmetics. ELF is well known as cheap cosmetics with good quality. Today I'd like to review about ELF Lip Lock Pencil ;)
To be honest, I never heard this product before the owner of @beautynbook (on Instagram) sent me this for review purpose. Thank you! ^.^
Let's jump to the review then :D
The product is packaged in a standard long box, professional-like packaging. The Lip Lock Pencil itself looks like a PEN, instead of pencil. I wonder why ELF named this product as Pencil, and not pen O_O Anyway, it's automatic pencil and doesn't need to be sharpened.
Keep your lipstick, lip gloss and lip liner from feathering, traveling or budging with the smooth glide Lip Lock Pencil. Lip color stays locked in place for continuous wear.
The colorless formula is perfect for any skin tone and fills in the lines around the tip
Price: around IDR 80,000-90,000
It will locks up your lipstick for continuous wear.. Too good to be true?
Directions / How to Use
Twist up pencil (no sharpening required) and trace the area outside your natural lip the prior to create an invisible barrier for your lip products. It's used as clear lip liner, and applied before lipstick.
BEFORE - AFTER
Hmmm.. I had misconception about this product. I thought it's supposed to be applied after lipstick (the LOCK word mislead me) but my fellow blogger friend, Nindy, told me that it's supposed to wear prior to lipstick. Thanks Nindy >_< *embarrassed*. Later on, I re-do my lip swatches photos with proper use. IMHO this product doesn't really works well on me. The longevity of any lipstick still depends on quality of each product. Yes, this Lip Lock Pencil helps to prolong the lipstick application, but not that reliable. My lipstick still faded after meal and only left slight stain on my lips. So, I jump into conclusion, this ELF Lip Lock Pencil is quite helpful to prolong lipstick application for quite a while, but just don't expect too much.
+ Quite sturdy packaging
+ No sharpener required
+ Professional-like packaging
+ Travel friendly
+ Not drying
+ Easy to use
- The result isn't really significant
This ELF product might be not recommended, but you can look for other ELF products :)
