'Bark' is a really pretty pinkish-brown shade, just a bit darker than my natural lip colour so it's perfect for me as a 'my lips but better' shade, great for everyday wear and when I want to look natural but a bit more 'polished.'
The product goes on smoothly and I love the minty smell! I think it's more of a thick lip-gloss than a lipstick.
I do find the container flimsy (I've had 2 of these and one broke so I had to transfer the product to a pot). The other one is fine but I still feel the container's pretty delicate. Be extra gentle when twisting the bottom of the pen to dispense the product.
You don't get much of the product, but this is only £1.50 on the UK e.l.f web-site, so I'm OK with that. I find I don't need to use much anyway.
I have repurchased this and would again because despite the bad packaging, the product itself is lovely.
just love it. i dont wear lipsticks because my lips are dry, elf luscious lipstick is more like a gloss but not as sheer. perfect for dry lips.
I must say, I quite fancy these e.l.f. Liquid Lipsticks. This one and Pink Lemonade just happen to be my favorites. Bark isn't too brown (which I feared it would be since the color drops on the website suck tremendously), but rather a perfect mauve-y nude shade for me. No pink undertones, no shimmer. It's rather sheer, but for me, it has just enough pigment so it can hold its own by itself, without a lipstick underneath. It gives my lips just a little bit of warm color (it's not pale at all), and I think this would look great on top of extremely pale lipsticks such as MAC's Myth, (which I don't have), but I've been using this and Victoria's Secret LE Lipstick in 'Instinct,' a said dupe for Myth. It's a great nude as well, and together, they really make a perfect lip combo. Lasts a surprisingly decent time (started fading after a little more than an hour on me), not too sticky, gives just the right amount of shine without being overly shiny. Smells refreshing too. AND it never settles into the lines of my lips after it's been on my lips for a while. It stays smooth and I was glad that it has a moisturizing feel to it.
On the downside, I hate the applicators and the packaging altogether on these, but seriously, it's the product inside that counts, and what's inside, I think is pretty darn good quality. This is my second tube of this shade, and I will definitely be purchasing at least five more of these and five more of Pink Lemonade with my next order.
Definitely the best lip product e.l.f. has to offer. I had bought 12 of these during their last sale. Bark is my to go color when I have zero time to figure out the lip color I want to wear for the day (I am extremely indecisive, ok?). It looks very natural on me and I just love the convenient packing. It can be a little confusing since there are a lot of other 'Bark' named lip products and the colors are totally different from each other. I personally have went through 6 of these babies. You can't tell me I don't love this. ; )
Will keep buying as long as they keep making. : )
I bought this today and I love it. I love everything about it, the color, the applicator tip and the packaging. You don't get much product but for the price, I can't complain.
This is like a brown version of the Baby lips liquid lipstick. It is a very sheer nude gloss. The texture is really nice, non-sticky and moisturizing. It gives your lips a really pretty glow. The staying power is ok but because of the spongy applicator it is really easy to reapply even without a mirror. It has a strong minty smell that I really like, but it's gone 10 minutes after application. I like the packaging as well, I have these luscious lipsticks in every color and I've never had any problems with them. I do wish there was a bit more product in each container.
Up till now I have given all the luscious lipsticks I've reviewed a 5 star rating but this one is a bit too sheer for my liking. Would repurchase though.
crap cheap crap!! it as no staying power it's sheer and smells funky i gave this to my 13 year old sister being as this crap is clearly kiddy makeup
LOVES this color! Its a brownish mauve that works well with medium to tanned skin. I receive many compliments on this color because of the shine, beautiful color and texture and when asked what I'm wearing, I'm almost embarrassed to say who its by! LOL... Next time I'm ordering 10 of these. The only thing bad is the item is always out of stock.
Although there is very little product in these liquid lipsticks, I love this color! Not a huge fan of the applicator tip either, but otherwise a very nice choice.
I'm more of a lip balm girl and was looking for a nice nude lipstick. I've tried several different kinds of lipstick and always hated the heavy feel and gross taste. I also hadn't been able to find the right shade.
Lately, I've become somewhat of a makeup junkie, and E.L.F. sort of lets you go wild without breaking the bank. So, I purchased 2 shades (bark and brownie points) online to try them out. I am in love with the bark color. It's the perfect nude lip-color for me. The brownie points also looks great. I like the thickish moisturizing texture. I stays where i put it and does not taste like petroleum like some prestige lines i have tried. I still have a lip balm in every purse/pocket, but now I have more sophisticated lip colors to turn to.
I also picked up a stick in pink lemonade since at Target. They did not carry the bark color, so I will be ordering more soon. I noticed that some of the older reviews (~2005) hated the packaging. I have not had any problems with mine - I love the applicator. I do wish there was more product in the tube, but the price is right and I suppose you don't want it to hang around forever since old makeup is not good.
