ELF beauty encyclopedia Lip Edition

Check out my video from youtube if your too lazy to read XD.
Finally recieved my ELF package from the 60% off sale, but the stupid mail man LEFT IT ON THE FRONT DOOR. Geez, just ring the damn doorbell and give it to me. What if someone jacked my stuff yo? Argh...or like leave it in the mail box where there is a box slot thing. Whatever...lazy butt.
Anyways, to more happy news! Here it goooooesss ^^.

So the product itself has a smell to it, but it is bearable. It reminds me of the same smell from Veet waxing strips...werid.

The Front of the little book. For those of you who have the 88 pallette, this pallette is about a inch smaller both length and width. So don't expect this to be uber big like me XD.

When you open the flap, there are instructions on how to apply lip products. The packaging itself is made mostly of hard cardboard with black foam so it is lightweight and good for traveling or just leaving it in your purse.

Comes with a plastic sheet to shield the product.

The pallette itself contains 12 lip color shades, 2 lip glosses, 1 lip liner and 1 lip defining brush.
When I first saw this pallete online, I thought the lip colors would be just waxy and not pigmented but BOY WAS I PLEASNTLY SURPRISED! It is soooooo creamy and pigmented. The colors would suit everyone with colors such as a nude to a royal red.
Heres some swatches:

First row from the top

Middle Row. The color on the left is the best nude color ever!! it doesn't blank out your lips to make you look like a porn star, but it nudes out your lip with a hint oh your natural color peeking through. Its the same color as the popular mineral lipstick natural nymph but with the texture of a lip gloss .The second color from the left is a really nice deep royal red for that Hollywood glamour look.

Bottom Row
Glosses swatches: the top one has a light pink frosty finish and bottom one is just a sheer pink color

The mini lip liner that comes with it is the same ones from the regular line (Feather Proof- Moisturizing Lip Liner in Mauve Luxe)
Liner swatch: Nice dark pink color with hints of shimmer but it is somewhat not soft enough; you need to press a little bit harder then normal Mini lip brush that comes with the pallette is almost the same size as the liner, just a little bit smaller. It is really soft and fluffy but i never actually used it on my lips so i can't really review this. If you don't use it on your lips, it would be also a nice eye brush.
Conclusion:-Price: $5 normally; got it for $2 A++ (good bang for your bucks)
-Packaging quality: B+
-Product Quality: A (very creamy and pigmented; liner can be better though)
-Overall rating: A
-Buy again? : yess
