Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick – Pretty Peach

Hello my dear ones!

After a hot red lipstick review its time for a summery fresh shade. Elle 18 has recently added some really cool colors in their collection and I will be reviewing them for you all as soon as I lay my hands on all of them. I shall begin with the shade “pretty peach”. Read the review to see how good or bad the lippy is and also see how different ( or same!) it is with two other shades of the same range.
Price:

Rs.100 for 4.3ml

Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick Pretty Peach

Elle 18 lipsticks have been reviewed a lot many times here on the blog and so I will not include the packaging and product claims here, instead I will jump straight to my experience.

My experience with Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick – Pretty Peach:

This particular shade is one of the most gorgeous peaches I have come across! Although some may think that it leans towards pink more than peach, but I believe it would suit Indian skin tone very well. The shade is for fair to wheatish skin tones, dark skinned beauties may skip it.The texture is buttery and its very pigmented. One swipe is enough but if you wish you can go for that second swipe too. The fragrance is the typical bubble-gummy smell. Unfortunately, like all other Elle 18 lippies, this too stays for a maximum time of 2 hours on my lips, after which it fades way evenly.

Now for the comparison. Below are the swatches of Cinnamon bun ( reviewed by me) and Rusty( reviewed by Neha) along with Pretty Peach. You will notice that this shade is somewhere between the former two shades. Cinnamon bun is sheer peach and Rusty is a bright orange. Pretty Peach falls somewhere in between. So if you are not much into sheer lippies and also not bold enough to carry shades like Rusty, then this one is for you!

Pros of Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick – Pretty Peach

1. Extremely affordable.
2. Easily available.
3. Good shade.
4. Does not dry lips or settle in lines.
5. Does not bleed. Can be applied without a lipliner.

Cons of Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick – Pretty Peach:

1. Low staying power.

Will I repurchase Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick – Pretty Peach?

Not this, as I have other new shades to buy!

Have a look at the wrist swatch. I have swiped it twice here.

Of course! It is a must-have for summers.
