Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick – Berry Blast Review

Hey Ladies!

Elle 18 has been continuously adding awesome shades to their Color Pops lipstick range and I have already reviewed quite a few here. Today, I am reviewing yet another totally mindblowing MLBB shade called “Berry Blast” from the same range. Read on to find out why I am so excited about this shade.

Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick Berry Blast Review

Price:

Rs. 100 for 4.3 ml.

Berry Blast 1

Packaging:

Elle 18 lipsticks have been reviewed so often here that I really do not need to describe again, but for all those who are new here, this lipstick comes in a black plastic casing with a graphic image of a girl on the cap. The casing is sturdy enough and the absence of metallic cover makes it light too.

Berry Blast 2

Ingredients:

Cocoa butter. Nothing else is mentioned

Pigmentation/Texture/Staying Power:

Berry Blast 3

An MLLB shade is different for every girl, while some prefer light browns; some go for beiges, while there are others who go for pinks. I belong to the third group. I always feel more comfortable in lipsticks which have a pinkish tinge in them. For me a subdued pink is an MLBB shade. I found my perfect MLLB in Berry Blast from Elle 18. This shade might not be an MLBB for everyone, but it will definitely suit every complexion. My roomie is a shade darker than me and on her lips, this lipstick turned out to be a beautiful brownish pink. On mine, it’s a lighter pink, but nothing too flashy.

Berry Blast 4

The texture is creamy and very moisturizing, almost like a lip balm. The only catch is the staying power. Like any other Elle 18 lipstick, this will stay for a maximum of two hours without food and drink. The “Hot Pink” one which I reviewed earlier was a darker shade and so it stayed on for quite some time, but don’t expect that much staying power from this one. The good news is that it has no shimmers, just an opaque and saucy color! Have a look at the swatch!

Pros of Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick – Berry Blast:

  • Inexpensive.
  • Universally flattering shade.
  • Moisturizing.
  • Does not stain lips.
  • Widely available.

Cons of Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick – Berry Blast:

  • Staying power.

Finally, here is how it looks on me. I have some Elle 18 Kajal smudged on my eyes apart from the lipstick.

thanks sreerupa! :) i just took some elle 18 kajal on my ring finger and smudged it all over my upper eye lids :) and for waterline, i opted for maybelline colossal kajal so that it wouldn’t smudge :)
