ELF mineral lipgloss review and swatch

One of the few ELF reviews I will be doing would be on Elf's mineral lip glosses. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these lip glosses, way way way better then their studio line or the regular line. Its a lot more pigmented and the colors are absolutely gorgeous.OH lala sleek packaging.
They claim to have no paraben, no preservatives and no chemical dye. I hope that's true elf... The top of the caps all come with the logo embossed onto it. All of these lip glosses come with a regular doe foot application and the handle is short so you get a good control with these compared to really long ones like the ELF studio minty lip glosses.They are about 9 cm in height, 0.21 oz/ 6g of product for $3 ($1.50 if you buy them on those 50% off mineral sales).
I have almost all of them except for crystal (clear) and trophy wife (golden). Don't these packaging look exactly like MAC lipglass? They are the same size too!

All of these aren't sticky and are quite pigmented for lip glosses. When I say "pigmented", don't think they are like OCC lip tar opqaue. They are just enough color for a nice sheen. Almost no lipgloss color shows up on my lips because they are so pigmented, but that's what i use a light lipstick first.

Left to right: daring, wild, pageant princess, fierce, au naturale, sorority girl, night owl, trendsetter, bare Close up: Daring (bright apple red colour with gold, blue, purple shimmer; shimmer finish)
Close up: wild (bright warm hot pink color with golden sheen; light frosty/ sheen finish) Close up: Pageant Princess (baby pink color with golden sheen; light frost/ sheen finish)
Close up: Fierce (Slightly darker coral color, more towards the dark peachy side with sliver sheen; light sheen finish)Close up: Au Naturale (Nude brown/peach color with mixture of gold and sliver shimmer; very shimmer/ frosty finish) Close up: Sorority Girl (Mauvey raisin color with very fine golden sheen; matte/ light finishClose up: Trendsetter (Browny dark cranberry color with subtle green and gold shimmer; light frost finish) Close up: Bare (nude brown color with light sliver shimmers; matte/ light sheen finish.) One of my favorite ones out of all of them because I pair it with ELF mineral lip stick in Natural Nymph and it just makes my whole face look like in tan when I'm not. XD
Close up: Night Owl (Dark burnt raisin color with fine golden shimmer)
