ELF Essential Lipstick Swatches and Review

ELF Essential Lipstick in Classy

I found a time to take some pictures of this lipstick I have been wanting to review for awhile now. I got this a week or two ago and only used it today for the purpose of the review. When I first saw this lipstick I knew I just had to buy it because ELF is a quality cosmetic brand at a very reasonable price. Since this is under the Elf Essential line, it retails at P129.75.

I love the packaging a lot in a silver grey plastic twist tube and I appreciate that you can see what shade it is without opening the tube. This lipstick also has a pleasant grape/berry scent which I really enjoy. I'm sure nobody wants to use a lipstick with an unpleasant scent. I really love how creamy this matte lipstick is. It glides on the lips very well and is non-drying. The shade is also very pretty. I can use this on a daily basis and I can also pair this with a smokey eye for an evening gathering. Are you a fan of MAC Lipsticks? This particular shade is a dupe of MAC's Angel so this is a very cheap alternative for those on a budget. If you want to see a shade comparison, check out this video by Emily Noel. The color looks very similar and you can't almost tell which one is which. I'm sure many are excited to hear about this too!

Below are some swatches:

I used this lip color today with a Smokey Eye, ELF Studio Blush in Tickled Pink on my cheeks, and NYC Bronzer in Sunny for contour. The staying power of this lipstick is also quite good. I hardly needed to retouch today which is really great. I just have a few words for this lipstick, great quality at a very affordable price. This lip product deserves 5 STARS!!!

If you've used this lipstick let me know your thoughts. Thanks for reading guys, I really appreciate it, and I hope you check out my other posts too.



  1. I have this lipstick too, and it's a great pink shade! It makes my lip lines show up a lot though. :(

    Btw I love your TFS nail polish posts!

  2. I have that same issue too especially that I don't use a lip liner. I bought a new one last night in Seductive and I like the shade better than classy :). I'll post some photos today.

    I'm glad to hear that you like my TFS nail polish post. I was going to do another review last night but failed. I'll surely post it today. Thanks for reading Dee! :)
