Review | ELF Day to Night Lipstick Duo

Get ready to see a ton of photos of my face! :)
ELF Cosmetics has a new lipstick line on the website, and I'm very excited about these Day to Night Lipstick Duos ($6) because they are pretty genius and I'm thrilled they are all vibrant and bold lip colors - just my style!
"This dual-ended lipstick conveniently has a beautiful soft shade for day and a bolder shade for night. The velvety satin formula is enriched with Shea, and Vitamins A, C, and E to help nourish and hydrate."
They offer four different duos to choose from, the individual shades are nameless but the duos themselves are labeled; Need it Nudes, The Best Berries, I Love Pink, Red Hot Reds. The formula feels the same as their Matte Lip Colors, super creamy and rich in color. I wish all their lipsticks had this formula and pigmentation.

Here are lip swatches of each duo, the day and night shades side-by-side

And then I thought it would be fun to show each duo worn as one lip look - for each duo, I applied the darker shade on the outer lip area and the lighter shade on the center lip area, blended together for a gradient effect. I really love how these turned out!!
