ELF Super Glossy Lip Shine SPF15 in Malt Shake

Hello girls! As promised, I will be posting product reviews of ELF cosmetics and this would be the second one of those. These products, by the way, were sent to me by ELF Cosmetics Philippines and all of the opinion stated in this post is entirely mine. Please check out the my review of ELF Luscious Liquid Lipstick as well, HERE. :)
ELF Super Glossy Lip Shine in Malt Shake
The product that I'll be reviewing next is the ELF Super Glossy Lip Shine in Malt Shake. Anyway, when I was younger, I was a huge lip gloss fan because it was the only makeup I could wear to school. I've always had dull and dark lips and tinted lip glosses would be my lifesaver, giving my lip a subtle color, so I won't look dead. Now that I could already wear lipstick anytime I want, I no longer became a fan of lip glosses simply because I don't want to put more emphasis on my already full lips. Lip glosses have the tendency to make the lips look more full and plumper than they really are and I already have huge lips. My sisters even call me Dory (from Finding Nemo) or fish lips because of my lips. Haha! But I really don't get offended. I still wear lip glosses from time to time whenever I want more shine on my lips. :)

Info about the product from ELF's Website

This Super Glossy formula leaves your lips with a healthy glossy glow. The delicious flavor and sweet scent will leave you licking your lips in delight. The perfect on-the-go tube that is mess-proof for easy application anywhere and anytime. Wear alone or layered over your favorite lipsticks for gorgeous, glossy lips!

Straight from the tube!
The good:
- It has a nice subtle pink-brown shade. It is very sheer on it's own, but you may opt to use it over a lipstick to get a glossy finish.
- The scent and the taste is pleasant  and not strong which I personally like.
- The packaging is very convenient to use and it fits well in my small make up bag.
- It is very affordable! Only P129. (Actually most of their products are of the same price)
- Available locally. Finally!
- The best thing about it is that it has SPF 15. Yay for sun protection!

The not so good:
- It gets sticky after quite some time.
- It sometimes feels heavy on the lips.
- Lip glosses in general makes my lips look fuller.
- No moisturizing effect. I need to wear first a lip balm before using the product.

Overall, this product is a must buy for all the lip gloss lovers out there! It is perfect for everyday use and one tube goes a loooong way. It is affordable and they have more shades available aside from Malt Shake. :)
