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.Picked 2 shades from Elle18 Color Pops and Matte Range.
Have previously reviewed Elle18 Color Pops “Pomegranate Pie” and the shade I am reviewing today is “Elle18 Color Pops Matte Pink Kiss”
Lipstick Category: MATTE
Your new, essential lip color is here. Now you can get that bold and intense color in just one stroke of application. Available in 20 bold and vibrant shades that accentuate your overall look. Give your lips the spotlight they deserve with the New Color Pops Matte Collection!
The shade is “Elle18 Color Pops Matte Pink Kiss“.
Well talking bout the shade, This is a pink shade with mix of pink towards mauve not empowering one but subtle .It is neither too bright nor on neutral shade its just perfect in between color for summers especially .Does not contains any shimmer and on application its creamy but gives matte finish on lips.It brightens up face instantly.It is very moisturizing and glides on lips without any efforts.It will suit fair to medium skin stones.
Not Mentioned on packaging
4.3 gms for 100 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.Two swipes is enough for a perfect look 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 and not at all drying hence do not need any lip balm application underneath .
This shade does not bleeds so no need to outline the lips with a liner.
The texture is soft and does not pulls or tugs lips on application.
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 PINK shade Its good for daily wear.The creamy consistency is very comfortable which doesnt makes lips dry.As per the price the pigmentation and consistency is commendable.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 skin tones especially Indian Skintones. It brightens the face instantly .The only con I felt is due to over soft consistency and 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 pink shade for day to day wear .
I wont repurchase same shade but will definitely try other shades from Matte series shades and share reviews soon.
