Elle 18 Colour Pops Berry Brook Lipstick Review

Another Elle 18 guys, this time it’s a “next to my MLBB shade” called Berry Brook. It’s a really beautiful pink which looks amazing on my lips. Another everyday/office wear shade from the collection and I am absolutely in love with this. Can’t rave enough about this baby.Read on for more.

My Experience Elle 18 colour pops berry brook

Lipstick:

Colour:
It’s a pretty pink with brown and mauve undertones. It has lot of shimmery particles. What is with me and shimmer I don’t get it? Every lipstick I stumble on is full of them especially the ones I like. Damn.

Staying power:

I found out it stays longer on petroleum jelly as a base rather than my HG VLCC lip shield in Mint.

Fragrance:

The usual bubblegum fragrance and no taste.

Texture:

It’s a sheer shade rather than creamy as opposed to how MLBB shades are mostly soft and creamy. I had to do almost 10 coats to get full coverage. Without the jelly, it dries like anything, so don’t rely on the cocoa butter thing to moisturise. Well it’s generally advised to use a balm underneath so it’s actually not a con.

Shimmer is extremely annoying as it builds up on the lip balm. However I found its easier when applied on Vaseline petroleum jelly. There goes my aversion towards shimmers.

The name is very apt actually. It’s really beautiful, makes my lips look perfect. This is my favourite shade after Pomegranate Pie and Cinnamon Bun. It might be the perfect MLBB for a few. Though I am fair, I recommend this to darker skin tones as well.

P.S. My lip swatches are taken in sunlight at eve around five so you may know how it looks in natural light. And I didn’t get rid of my facial hair as well since I am against it. (Actually scared)

this color looks perfect in the first pic of ur lips but it looks very bad in second .I am disappointed with elle18 lipstick because of its very low staying and pigmenting power. I had purchased this lipstick after checking swatches of different shades in reviews .I have pinken which does not give any pink color when i apply it ,instead it gives a brown color which i dont like.I had checked the swatches of this shade on reviews but it gives very much different color to my lips when i apply it.
