Review: E.L.F. Conditioning Lip Balm in Peaceful Pink!

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: 
With the e.l.f. Conditioning Lip Balm, lips get treated to a sheer splash of color that’s super smooth, velvety soft and non-sticky. Not only are these sheer, natural shades beautiful, they’re also beneficial, with natural ingredients that condition dry, chapped lips including Vitamins A & E. SPF 15 to protect delicate lips against harmful sun damage.

AVAILABLE IN SIX (6) SHADES: Nice & Natural, Peaceful Pink, Mellow Melon, Blissful Berry, Bombshell Brown and Romantic Rouge.

READ MORE FOR MY REVIEW & SWATCHES! 


Peaceful Pink is a creamy, warm bubblegum pink. It doesn't contain any shimmer, pearl or frost. I really didn't expect this product to have much pigment for a tinted lip conditioner. I figured it would look clear on the lips with a slight tinge of pink. But, it's actually has good pigmentation. With one swipe, it gives a really natural pink flush to the lips. It is build-able for a pinker look. The consistency is really creamy and while the product is on my lips, it keeps them moisturized. I'm really happy overall with this product and wish I would of purchased Mellow Melon too. 

Here's what it looks like on my bare lips. I apologize that my lips were a little chapped when I applied the product.

I find it to be really similar to MAC Lip Conditioners. The consistency of ELF is slightly creamier, but it moisturizes just the same and gives a similar look on the lips. Here it is compared to MAC Pink Fish Tinted Lip Conditioner (Limited Edition). Color-wise, Pink Fish is a cooler pink.

Swatches of E.L.F. Peaceful Pink and MAC Pink Fish.

PROS: Good pigmentation, contains SPF, non-sticky, fabulous color, no offensive scent, in-expensive ($3.00, I got mine for $1.50 on sale)
CONS: It's a bit of a pain to get product out, especially with my fingernails. Each time I use it, my fingernail ends up digging in the product. I have to use a lip brush when I use this, which isn't very convenient. Probably not a problem if you have petite fingers or very short nails.
PACKAGING: I think the packaging is pretty - But, I also think it's pretty large and bulky. Not really something you can slip in your pocket or wristlet. Kinda wouldn't mind if it was half the size, but not a big issue.
OVERALL: I really love this product and recommend it!
