1, 2, 3…nude lip!

This is a personal challenge. I’m trying to write this post in 15 min (pictures uploaded already) to see if I can go to sleep at a decent hour at least tonight…

Better get going then. I bought this ELF Plump and Prime product a while ago and has been sitting on my make up tray without getting too much attention really.

Last weekend I was bored and I decided to try things that I’ve had for a while but having been used much like said Plump& Prime from ELF. Forgot the actual name, sorry…ok, I just checked it and is the Lip Primer and Plumper from the studio collection.

This is what they say about it in the ELF website:

“Achieve longer lasting lip color and sexy plumped lips. The Primer creates a base for lip color for no budge, no smudge pigment that lasts all day. The cinnamon scented Plumper enhances your lips with a subtle plumping tingle effect for fuller, larger looking lips”

Here’s how it looks:

ELF Lip Primer&Plumper and Hypershine Lip Gloss in Cloud Nine

The Plumper side does taste like cinnamon but it stings quite a bit. Use sparingly. The fuller effect is mild. The primer is a bit chalky, I don’t like it by itself and don’t think is a very good primer in the sense that the lipstick you apply on top does definitely budge.

ELF Lip Primer + Lipgloss

The Hypershine lipgloss I love. It tastes great (sweet) and leaves your lips supersmooth and actually lasts quite a bit. Really impressed. I also like the brush applicator which  has supersoft bristles.

I ended up trying this:

1.One coat of Plumper

2.One coat of Primer on top. Blend a bit.

3. Finish with the clear lipgloss.

If  I feel it looks too plain (I’m not that much into nudes, really) I add a coat of light pink lip balm ( lip balm tin in Candy Fix also from ELF).

This is how it looks like:

Not a very good picture, I know...

Let me know if you have tried any of this and how do you like them.

Uff made it just on time!
