Review & Swatches: E.L.F. Studio Glossy Gloss in Sweet Salmon + Mini E.L.F. Haul

Description on packaging:
A high shine gloss for a beautiful sheen and a rich tint of color that has no sparkle
Great for wearing alone or over lipstick, lip pencil, or any lip color
Provides intense hydration and moisture with Vitamin E formula

Sweet Salmon (light salmon peach)

One coat

Compared to Revlon Super Lustrous lip glosses in:
Nude Lustre (left) and Life's a Peach (right)

As you can tell, all 3 are very glossy, which I like depending on how my skin is doing. Excuse the uneven swatches, I am not pro like Citrine is :(

- Glossy
- Not drying
- Decent pigment
- Brush applicator

- Not sold in stores (yet?)

$3 for 0.24 oz / 6.8 g

Overall: A
This is one of the newer products from the E.L.F. Studio line, and I am definitely impressed. These compare to the Revlon Super Lustrous glosses (see my review & swatches here) but are a fraction of the price. The packaging is kind of similar too except E.L.F. has a matte black packaging. I actually used a 50% off code and got this for $1.50.
This doesn't provide "intense hydration" as they claim, but it is definitely more moisturizing than any other lip glosses I've tried that are actually glossy. It also has a very faint sweet fragrance and tastes kind of sweet.

Would I recommend this?


Along with this, I also purchased some more E.L.F. stuff

L to R
E.L.F. Smudge brush ($1)
E.L.F. lip brush ($1)
I heard from xteeener looong ago that this is terrible as a lip brush but great for inner corner highlights, let's see if that still holds true
E.L.F. Studio Eyebrow Treat and Tame ($3)
I got these the last time I ordered from E.L.F., I found that the treat part actually works a little, and got my mom into it. (see my full review here)
E.L.F. Butternut quad ($1)
Also a relatively old product of theirs, I just never got to trying it because I don't wear eyeshadow on the daily.
E.L.F. Waterproof eyeliner pen in Black ($1)
A little scared that this is already dried out (since I've seen that happen w/ someone on YT), but will review soon if it hasn't
E.L.F. lipstick in Flirtatious & Charming ($1 each)
Swatches soon!

And of course what I just reviewed.

This isn't the most exciting haul, but I've learned to only buy items I would actually use.

If you ever want to order from E.L.F. online, be sure to check Retail Me Not for a coupon code before ordering. I got my items 50% off :)


  1. I was about to say that the color looks similar to nude lustre (I finished two tubes of this already) but what I bummer that it's not in store (hate buying drugstore stuff online), I have seen a new shimmery pink blush that's quite pretty.

  2. @ Citrine Haha I like it a little better than Nude Lustre since I like paler lips. Aw that's unfortunate, someone on Luuux said they saw this at Target but not many colors were there. What's the blush's name?
