Ellana Minerals Lip in Luxe

I've been an avid Ellana fan eversince I started blogging and I have seen how this local Filipino brand soared its highest for its well-known mineral cosmetics. I have tried their mineral powder foundations and I must say, it has the best coverage. I will be posting a separate review about their mineral foundations, but for today, let's go through the Lip in Luxe liquid lipsticks.



PRICE: 599php

CLAIMS:
Paint your lips with one swipe! Our Lip in Luxe lipstick is saturated in pigment, and dries down to a water-, smudge-, and budge-resistant finish. Let go of your drying and patchy looking liquid matte lipstick and bring home these creamy, kiss-proof babies that come in 8 gorgeous shades!

SHADES:
  • Love is True – Make a statement with this gorgeous rich blue-toned red. Time to bring out the girl boss in you!
  • Love is Life – Channel your inner 90’s girl with this brown nude. A statement shade that surely says “I’m ready to go out there and nail it!”
  • Love is a Gift - This deep pink features muted peach-orange undertones, and is the perfect daily use shade for those who prefer roses over nudes.
  • Love is Amazing– This warm peach nude is wearable for an everyday look. It’s light and like your lips but better.
  • Love is Pure – This sexy yet restricted red with a cool undertone will definitely make your lips stand out! If bold reds aren’t your thing, then this one is.
  • Love is Bliss – Get the best of both worlds with this pink-based nude that adds brightness and bloom to any look!
  • Love is The Reason – A fave and easy to work with rosy-pink that will surely make your casual makeup a head turner.
  • Love is Forever – This true 90s brown has subtle purple-pink undertones that give skin a warm glow. Dab it lightly onto cheeks as well for a bronzed goddess look!


PACKAGING:
Each Lip in Luxe comes in a separate box with this kind of packaging. Ellana really knows how to inspire and empower women! Each box comes with an inspirational quote that promotes beauty. 

The Lip in Luxe is packed in a rectangular plastic tube with a wand applicator. Their old packaging has a black base for the wand, and their new one comes in a white base with pink flowers as design.

MY THOUGHTS
  • Unfortunately, it's kind of drying when applied on the lips. It has a matte finish, and dries really matte. 
  • It also easily cakes after an hour of application
  • They have nice shade range, however, if you don't moisturize your lips or put lip scrub prior to application, it can be really drying.
  • It can easily be removed after eating. No long-staying power
  • When applying, it looks really creamy, but easily sets onto the lips.
  • I'm a fan of matte finish lipsticks, but the Ellana Lip in Luxe didn't catch my fancy because after 1 week of usage, my lips felt really dry.
