elf Lip Lock: Corral That Lipstick

e.l.f. studio has been releasing quite a few new products and expanding on the ones they already have. If you are shopping for makeup brushes, do give them a consideration!

The new product I have for today is a lip liner that is clear and you trace the outside of your lips with it. This is to prevent your lipstick (and, gloss as you will see below) from bleeding or feathering out from the lips.

I like a good Lip Lock but, this is a different type of Lip Lock. elf gives us a Lip Lock pencil…

lip elf libby kick stix 011That’s the point; you shouldn’t see it. So, I traced it around the outside of my lips and then applied a new gloss I purchased recently…

A bit about this gloss. As I mentioned, it is from Forever 21. It is a mini that came in a box of three…

This red has no name of its own. And, it isn’t quite as orange as the photos are presenting…

lip elf libby kick stix 020Since my gloss stayed inside of the lines, I count this as a win. Plus, it is only $3. And, I can see Lip Lock being a product that would be good to travel with; you wouldn’t need to bring a collection of lip liners; Lip Lock will have you covered for any gloss or lipstick. Yet, I feel that Lip Lock is nothing more than a chapstick pencil. I haven’t tried it but, I can see using Soft Lips in clear for the same thing.

Have you tried Lip Lock? Do you think a clear chapstick product could do about the same thing?

  • Never tried it but I want to! Your lips look good for after 2 hours!

    This review is just in time. My old barrier pencil is just about gone and I was starting to look around for a new one. Yay!
