My experience with Elf lipstick – Sociable:
This lipstick comes in a plastic grey tube with ELF written in silver and a clear strip in between. This clear strip makes it easy to find the shade if you have too many of the same brand. Only problem with the packaging I faced was that the lipstick doesn't go in completely. Thus, I’ve landed up hurting my lipstick a couple of time. *sob sob*

The shade and Texture:
The shade is a nice bright berry pink with small silver shimmers. I’m personally not a fan of shimmery lipstick but well I still love the shade. The texture is very creamy and smooth. It has a fragrance of berries I think which I seem to like a lot. The pigmentation is really nice. This lipstick isn’t moisturizing nor drying but I would suggest applying a little lip balm before actual application of the lipstick. It can be very drying if you have dry lips.

The lasting power for this lipstick is really nice on me. It lasts about 8 hours on me. It leaves a very nice tint after fading.

My likes with Elf Lipstick Sociable:
1. It is a lovely hot pink colour.
2. This lipstick gives coverage even on pigmented lips.
3. This lipstick lasts really long (approx 8 hours).
4. This lipstick fades evenly.

My Dislikes with Elf Lipstick Sociable:
1. Not easily available in India
2. Maybe a bit drying for people with dry lips (Tip: apply a balm before lipstick application).
3. I don’t like my lipsticks to be shimmery hence I’m listing it as a con.
4. Expensive if bought in India.

Final Verdict:
Definitely worth a buy if you have people coming from abroad who can buy it for you. This Pink shade is a must have one and affordable too.
