So since long I am in search of perfect pink nude lipstick for my skintone which can be worn easily in office and gives a subtle look.I have previously tried Lakme,miss claires,maybelline and what not.But then thought of trying Elle 18 color pops series with cocoa butter ,as they were light on pocket too.
So the shade I picked up is “Pomegranate Pie”
Lipstick Category: CREAM
Now get soft, supple and luscious lips with Elle18 Color Pops. Cocoa butter and jojoba
oil packed into a moisturizing core and sure to provide you with intense color soaked
lips. Available in more than 40 shades. So go ahead, pick the color of your kiss from
Frosted Cherry to Iced Chocolate, from Spice Ginger to Grape Rain –
The shade is “Elle18 Color Pops With Cocoa Butter-Pomegranate Pie”
Well talking bout the shade, This is a mauve shade with mix of pink and browns to it.Its just bright Orange infact lot like neon Orange .It is super bright and gives matte finish on lips.Its the pretty bright and bold shade to carry in summers.It brightens up face instantly.It is very moisturizing and glides on lips without any efforts.It will suit fair to medium skin stones.
4 gms for 120 INR (Steal Deal)
The lipsticks are packed in a black plastic body with a cute girl toon pick and closes with a click sound.The name of the shade is mentioned at the bottom of the case .
The size is very easy to carry and travel friendly.Due to sturdy packing one is assured that it will not open in bag.One downside of packaging is you cannot identify the shade of the lipstick from outside since all shades have same packaging.
Pigmentation and Texture:
This shade is decently pigmented and smooth.Its just amazing .One to two swipes is enough for a perfect look and in two swipes it covers pigmented lips giving an opaque finish..When applied they glide smoothly like butter on lips without much effort.
Lips do not feel heavy at all, you wont feel that there is something applied on lips.They are moisturizing due to goodness of cocoa butter and not at all drying hence do not need any lip balm application underneath .
This shade actually bleeds so one needs to first outline the lips with a liner and then fill lipstick using brush.I have always applied it directly though.
The texture is creamy it gives very moisturizing effect on lips.After a while settles down to semi-matte finish not much but.
Direction to Apply:
Line the lips with a suitable lip liner. Press the bullet to the lips using even pressure to apply color on both upper and lower lips: To refresh and even out, press lips together. Using a lip brush gives a richer and more precise color application.
Staying power :
The staying power of these lipsticks is less around 2 hours on my lips especially during summers.It does transfers which can be a turnoff for some.However need touch ups post drink and food breaks.One cannot ask for more in just 100 bucks!! It can be easily removed using make-up remover or my all time favorite coconut oil.:).
This is a very beautiful mauve shade more towards pink+brown undertones.Its good for daily wear..The pigmentation is good and 1-2 swipes are sufficient.It doesn’t stays much on lips and transfers little but does not settles in fine lines of lips.Gives natural glossy look since its not from matte series.
This shade will look good on all skintones especially Indian Skintones.The only con I felt is due to over soft consistency my lipstick broke while applying !! 😦 .Apart from this I could not feel any con.
Affordable,beautiful shade worth a try !!!
I would recommend it to people looking for some subtle shade for day to day wear .
I wont repurchase same shade but will definitely try Matte series shades and share reviews soon.
