ELF Moisturizing Lipsticks

When I last ordered some stuff from ELF at the end of December, I decided to try out a couple of their Moisturizing Lipsticks. I got 3 colours, Party in the Buff, Flirty & Fabulous and Red Carpet. (The hand swatches were all 2-3 swipes, no primer.)

Firstly "Party in the Buff"

I'm pretty sure that if swatched this on my hand in a shop I wouldn't have bought it. It swatches really orangey and I have a couple of colours like that already.  Here it is on my hand:

But on the lips, it's lovely. OK the lighting is slightly different here, as I took the hand-swatch pics in my lightbox and I can't stick my whole head in the thing! But actually this is pretty true to life. It looks much less orangey on and it's a lovely nude shade.

Secondly "Flirty and Fabulous"

This is a night bright, fuschia pink. I think this would be lovely just with a simple eye look. My camera does unfortunately wash it out a little bit on the swatches.

Lastly, I got "Red Carpet"

This is a bright red that is more blue toned than orangey but is a bit of a cross between a deep cherry red and a brick red. It's a lovely shade - although as my teeth are not the whitest in the world I would prefer a deeper blue-toned red because it makes your teeth look whiter than a more orangey shade.

Forgive my lip swatch - as us lippy lovers know, red lips take time and patience to perfect and I just kind of slapped this on quickly for the pic! Also, the pic has washed this out a little too.

I like the formula of these lipsticks a lot. Their name doesn't lie, they are moisturising and feel very nice on, not drying at all.  The downside of this is that they won't last as long as a matte formula. But I'm ok with this, most lipstick/gloss doesn't really last on me I find anyway (except for Limecrime's Velvetines - those awesome lil suckers stay on ALL NIGHT!!)

I would definitely pick up some other shades of these when I do future orders.

Have you tried these lippies? What do you think and are there any other colours I should pick up next?
