So, to begin, Elf mineral lipstick in natural nymph is one of my items purchased from my elf haul. Why I bought it? Lollipop26 from youtube was raving about it! And since elf products are fairly cheap, why not try it out? Besides, I love nude lipsticks
My camera didn’t pick up the colour very well. The lipstick is slightly lighter in real life. Pretty much like a “concealer” in a tube. But fret not, it is not drying at all! Which is a plus point for me especially when I have chapped lips. Still, it would be preferred to apply lip balm before applying natural nymph.
I might say that when applied, the colour is a tad too light for me, almost erasing out my lips, like a concealer as said. That’s when a good lipgloss comes in handy. I used a very light pink lipgloss over natural nymph as shown below in the picture. I think the lipstick+lipgloss combo would be much better than the bare lipstick alone. I would advised using a darker lipgloss as well, such as a berry lipgloss. You don’t want to look like a living dead walking around right? Being a fan of nude lips, I don’t mind natural nymph being pale at all. I can use it to even out my lip colour, add just add a lipgloss.
* I forgot to apply lipbalm before the application
Placing my natural nymph next to MAC myth, they are somewhat similar, except that myth has a more pink tone to it. Natural nymph is neutral-toned. If I were to compare myth to natural nymph in terms of pigmentation and staying power, myth wins. But hey, US$5 for a lipstick, what can you say? I must praise that elf mineral lipsticks are moisturizing! From what I read online, other dupes of natural nymph would be Gosh darling and MAC creme d’nude.
Left: Mac myth Right: ELF mineral nymph
Indeed, mac myth looks creamier on the swatch but the hydration that natural nymph gives is commendable
Staying power: 4/5
Would I recommend buying it? Yes for the ELF mineral line! Try other colours as well! They have a wide variety of colours!
