I was quite surprised with the E.l.f. Essential formula since the pigmentation and finish is comparable to the more expensive alternatives. This is the lightest shade of the bunch, therefore it is my go-to lip colour for winter. The flavour is just okay, a bit fruity but also slightly plastic-y. The formula goes on with a moisturizing finish, but wears off within a few hours. I don’t like the packaging seeing as how the actual lipstick has a hard time staying in place. It'll often scrape along the side of the tube when you roll it up, and the actual mechanism isn't smooth at all. Definitely a good budget-friendly buy, without any luxurious touches. This lipstick is made in China and there is 3.5 g in the tube.
