e.l.f Conditioning Lipbalm SPF15 - all shades

My favourite every day shade from this range is Mellow Melon, the first three shades (top row) are sheer. None of the shades are shimmery. They smell of coconut (or pina colada to me), much like the essential range hypershine lip glosses.

These are sheer, non sticky but quite pigmented. For example, Mellow Melon on me gives me a coral pink colour which is great for spring/summer, it doesn't totally block out my skin tone underneath, so bear that in mind. These are not meant to be as pigmented as lipsticks but as you progress towards Romantic Rouge the pigment increases dramatically (as you can see from the swatches) so you get a lot more colour.

These are creamy and soft, leaving my lips plump and moisturised but not greasy or sticky. I really like these for days when I don't want to wear lipstick or gloss but fancy some colour, moisture and SPF.

The only downside for me is that the pots are rather bulky and there is a lot of product so it's going to last ages. It will fit in my bag but I am one of those people who prefer sticks or pens for on the go as it is more convenient (such as the luscious liquid lipstick in Strawberry). I think due to the colour and shine, I could be persuaded put this in my bag at least it won't be hard to find. I think there has to be a lot in the conditioner as you do go through it quickly, faster than a lip balm as you want the colour to last.

I've swatched these on white paper, I think it's easier than swatching them on my lips or skin as everyone is different. This way you can see the colour for how it is and make up your own mind if it fits in with your colour palette. I think Blissful Berry is a colour everyone could wear.

The pots look like the Studio range eye products, crystal plastic pots with black square lids. These are probably twice the size of the cream eye liners for example.

There aren't too many ingredients, I think e.l.f like to keep it simple and to tried and tested formulas which helps keep costs down. Vitamins A & E are present as well as SPF 15 so useful for summer.

The Conditioning Lip Balms recently went on sale for £3.50 at the e.l.f UK website. As I work for e.l.f in the UK, it's my pleasure to bring you my thoughts on this product.

Do you wear tinted lip conditioners, which would you choose?


  1. I can't wait to receive these, ELF contacted me and asked if I wanted to try them....your review has made me super excited :) xx

  2. I had already considered buying the Mellow Melon shade and now you've convinced me :) I already have the luscious liquid lipstick in strawberry and I love it! xxx

  3. I have "Nice & Natural" but now I also want the "peaceful pink". These are really good for summer and the smell is divine.

  4. Nice :), I'll keep in mind to try them out. Just hope the smell is not too overpowering - the Studio lip stains smelled really bad to me - can't use those at all. :S

  5. Daisy, you'll love Romantic Rouge, used lightly is very similar to Strawberry!

  6. I love these I got them as soon as they got them on the site. I got nice & natural, mellow mellon and romantic rouge. And Romantic Rouge is my favorite=)
