Elle 18 Color Bombs Color Burst Lipstick Review, Photos, Swatches
I also got a Color Burst lipstick from the Elle 18 Color Bombs Range. The shade name is Spice-ginger No 11. It’s a brown –beige color. I do Not normally wear browns. But somehow the shade looked very nice in the light and indeed it is a beautiful shade.
The package reminded me of Mac as per the look. But although the package looks expensive, it is not. It is flimsy compared to the last packaging which I think was a sturdy one. Here is how it looks
Quantity : 4.3 ml ( as much as a Lakme lipstick, quite a good amount)
Shelf-life: 30 months from packed
Composition: not mentioned
What the company claims: the company claims it has cocoa butter. Apart from this nothing is there.
This is the Color Burst lipstick. Its is frosted but looks pretty on the lips. Although I don’t like brown. I don’t know why I got this color. An impulse may be.
The color payoff is okay. I guess the color pay off would be good for some lippies the way they looked. But this one is a bit sheer. Let me show you the swatches
This is a single swipe and I was left with this much of color. I don’t mind going over more than once while putting on my lips. I’ll be able to finish it sooner then: P
The product smells sweet and good. I find it quite pleasant. It is not overwhelming and goes away after a while. So, for those who cannot stand strong smells it is good for them as well.
Pros of Elle 18 Color Bombs Color Burst Lipstick
- They are cheap. This is a positive advantage surely. I can carry it around and lend it to friends as well (Of course I don’t lend it to every one for hygienic reasons ).
- The color pay off is good.
- The package is cute
- Stays on for quite some time
Otherwise there is nothing too great. But then, what more do you expect?
Cons of Elle 18 Color Bombs Color burst lipstick
- The package is flimsy and it feels cheap to hold in hand.
- All the colors are not yet available. Can’t tell if those will be available later on. I always find all the colors are never available in a single store which is definitely a disadvantage.
I can’t think of any other cons because I don’t have too high expectations from this lipstick. Serves my purpose well.
Besides, I noticed some thing. I get the feeling that is just old wine in new bottle. Only the package has changed. Because, I saw a shade called Pomegranate pie which looked exactly like the shade that was called Frutopia. Also, I found an Apple Spring(s?) which was there before. The shade Maroon Iris also looked good. The other shades are not all frosted. Only a few are frosted.Here is the Spice Ginger on my lips. Let me know if you like the shade. It looks pinkish because I took it in day light and my lips are deep pinky brownish whatever a color it is, somewhere between them. But it actually looked more brown from a distance.
Will I repurchase Elle 18 Color bombs Color burst lipstick ?
Yes, I will. It comes dirt cheap and I’ve always owned an Elle 18. They are the deep holed pockets’ best friends.
