ELF Studio Glossy Gloss – Merry Cherry & Dragonfruit

I purchased two of the ELF Studio Glossy Glosses as part of my recent ELF haul, and are another hit! They have a nice level of pigmentation for a gloss – not too sheer, but not completely opaque.  They  are taste-free and I don’t notice a scent. They’re slightly sticky, but I actually like the texture – they’re not sticky enough to bother me, and they stay put quite well.

Visually, I like the square tubes; however, the brush applicator is a problem.  It’s far too stiff and thus sometimes leaves streaks which need to be smoothed out with a finger or softer lip brush. The brush on Merry Cherry is particularly bad, while the one on Dragonfruit is almost useable.

Despite the brush problem, I have been enjoying these a lot. Recommended for those who don’t mind a little stickiness and using a separate lip brush (or finger).
