Last month e.l.f. added two new colors to the existing Lip Balm SPF 15 range which created the perfect opportunity for me to review the whole line. Have a look!
The e.l.f. Lip Balm SPF 15 is a tinted lip balm with SPF 15. That means that it not only nourishes and moisturizes your lips, but also protects them against the sun and adds a subtle hint of color to them. The already existing colors in the range, Pink (light pink) and Nude (a warm nude shade), were recently joined by two new ones: Peach (peachy pink) and Rose (a rosy bitten red).
From the four colors, Pink and Rose are definitely my two favorites. Pink is a cute candy pink and Rose is a stunning my-lips-but-better red. Pretty! And finish-wise I also like Pink and Rose the most. Both colors have a perfectly even application, look flawlessly smooth on my lips and have a lovely sheen to them. Nude and Peach on the other hand have a less even finish and tend to emphasize lines and flakes a bit. Peach also looks more pink than peach on my lips, which is a shame because I was really looking forward to having a pretty little peach shade.

The texture of the e.l.f. Lip Balm SPF 15 is deliciously smooth and soft, which is exactly what you’d expect from a good lip balm. And the formula is incredibly creamy and nourishing as well. Happy lips assured. Also good to know: in addition to several waxes, the formula also contains peppermint for an instant cooling sensation, which is very pleasant, especially now in summer.
Summarized? The e.l.f. Lip Balm SPF 15 is the perfect day-to-day lip product for me. It’s just as moisturizing as a traditional lip balm but looks a lot cuter, and it offers UV protection. And with its smooth creamy formula and subtle pigmentation it’s super easy to apply and touch up, even without a mirror. It’s no secret that I’m an e.l.f. fan and the e.l.f. Lip Balm SPF 15 is the perfect example of why that is. What a great budget buy!
