E.L.F. Mineral Lip Gloss in Trendsetter and Daring Swatches and Reviews

Hello all!  I'll be reviewing elf's Mineral Lip Glosses in 'Trendsetter' and 'Daring'.  I know they definitely have more colors on the site, but I only bought two because they had other cheaper glosses in the Essentials section which I will review later on.

These glosses retail for $3/ea and I normally wouldn't get them because I'm not a big fan of glosses.  However, I read good reviews and raves about the color Trendsetter and wanted to try it, but it was out of stock when I ordered so I got Daring instead, which seemed like a red on the website and seemed like the best bet for getting a good color payoff as I find glosses tend to be on the sheer side.

After a couple of hauls later, Trendsetter came back in stock and I took the chance to grab one!  They come in the standard doe-foot applicator and Trendsetter smells heavily of brown sugar.

The swatch actually makes Trendsetter look more red than it actually is.  Trendsetter is actually more of a brownish mauve color that's perfect for a nude but glossy look.  As you can see, Daring was not red, but in fact a bright fuchsia in the tube and extremely sheer when applied.  Both of these are glitter glosses but you cannot feel the glitter on your lips.

My lips with Daring: extremely sheer, looks almost like my natural lip color

I would not recommend these because they're not pigmented at all.  Even if you build them up there is no color payoff and it just becomes thick and goopy.  They don't feel too thick or sticky on the lips so that's a perk, but I would not purchase again because of their sheerness.

Bottom Line: Super sheer and not pigmented, not thick or sticky but would not recommend or repurchase.

Also, I should probably take the time to say that I'm not at all sponsored by elf and I buy everything with my own money.
