Up close and personal with the swatches

 For me, Elf is good as a lipliner, it is opaque and creamy but tends to dry out after application. The packaging is nice and sturdy enough for travel too. But the color does not complement my skintone, even though I'm NC27 and more on the neutral tone. Ever Bilena, is a very nice contender for a local brand. Creamy, and more on a peachy pink tone, this is the right nude-y pink lipstick for me, but still needs moisturizing before application. 

Winner: Ever Bilena
