The packaging is good and sturdy, like most elf studio packaging is, and hasn’t broken on me. The lid snaps on tightly, no need to worry about it falling off, but at the same time it’s not hard to remove the lid. The tube is matte black like most of E.l.f.’s studio line. It contains .13oz of lipstick, which is good for $5. I didn’t pay that much for it because I received it in a beauty bundle from E.l.f. Elf claims that this is a long wearing lipstick, but I disagree. It lasts until you eat something afterwards you will need to retouch. I own two colors, both of which have been discontinued, but one shade called Nicely Nude is still available on the elf website as of 3/9/17, but I have not tried that one.
This lipstick is smooth and hydrating, stays where you put it and has good pigmentation. The only complaint that I have is that it can be a tad patchy if your lips are a little dry. I like the formula. It has no taste, but if you find smells off putting then you might not like this one because it smells like crayons. It is not strong and cannot be smelled once it’s applied on the lips.I would recommend this lipstick to anyone.
Pros-Hydrating as it claims to be, smooth and doesn’t bleed off of lips.
Cons-patchy, smell of crayons. Four out of five stars.
