Elle 18 Colorpops Lipstick # 34 Passion Plum

Hi everyone!

As I promised earlier, I am reviewing the second one of the Elle 18 lipsticks that I bought recently. Elle 18 had started with their range “Dewlips”, and later they got a total make over and “Dewlips” became “Colorpops” with their prices doubled! They had around 25 shades in this collection initially, but since the last year they have introduced some more shades and believe me, the shades are so pretty that I end up buying a new one each time I go for lipstick hunting. The shade I am talking about today is “Passion Plum”, read on to see how it fared.

Price:

Rs 100 for 4.3 ml

Ingredients:

Cocoa butter (nothing else is mentioned)

Pigmentation, texture and staying power:

This shade is a very pretty plum shade true to its name. It has got deep pink tones and slight mauve tones. There is tiny golden shimmer visible on the lipstick bullet but it is not at all visible when applied on lips.

The texture is smooth, creamy and it is decently pigmented. Since I got this shade for my mum and she prefers a bit deeper hues for her lips, so I make her swipe this twice to get that true plum shade. On my own lips, I prefer just a single swipe. But yes, this is a night wear shade for me. Although, girls who can flaunt deeper hues during the daytime, this is a must have! The staying power is sadly, like all the Elle 18 lippies, just over two hours. But the feel is so moisturizing that you would not mind touch ups .

Aparajita, million thanks to you, after reading your posts on elle 18 lipsticks, finally I have decided to put on lipstick. *shy*, I think IMBB is turning me to love makeup everyday and your posts are so good and very informative that you make believe to buy and it’s a modest product so I won’t mind splurging on it. Thank you once again dear. :)

I am still so wary of putting lipsticks… Everytime i do put one, i fell like i have done a lot of makeup and then i end up removing it… Even so with such colours. But its such a pretty colour :’( sob sob
