My experience on Elle 18 #05 Coral Nude Color Boost Lipstick :
Packaging: They have smartly revamped their lipstick packaging. It’s the same as their previous lipsticks. Just the lid’s colour has been changed to bright pink. It’s super feminine and gorgeous to look at. The shade name and number is printed on a sticker at the bottom. If you have more than one lipsticks from this range then it might take some time to spot the shade you are looking for.
Colour/Pigmentation: These Elle 18 lipsticks are ‘dual cored’ as they describe them. The previous lipsticks has a lip balm core, but apparently, these lipsticks don’t have the lip balm core. It’s a coloured core as you’ll can see in the pictures. Coral Nude swatches as a nice orange shade but on the lips it looks like a milky coral nude. The lipstick is very aptly named as ‘Coral Nude’ It’s a very pretty nude with some hints of orange in it. This shade will flatter fair skin tones. It does wash me out so I have to wear either gloss over this or a dark coloured lip liner under it. It’s a beautiful shade! I even like the pigmentation of this lipstick. You don’t need any more than 3 coats for beautiful pouty lips! It doesn’t leave any tint when removed.
Texture: I like the texture of this lipstick. It’s smooth and creamy. It glides on super easily. It doesn’t tug or pull.
It doesn’t exactly moisturise your lips but your lips won’t feel dry either. It isn’t too soft, which is a plus. The previous lipsticks used to be super soft and would often melt very easily when kept outside. Let’s just say it has the right amount of creaminess! But I noticed that when you apply this particular shade over a lip balm, it just messes up! It glides smoothly, no doubt but tends to appear patchy. So it’s better to use this on bare lips.
Staying power: I’m impressed by the staying power of this lipstick. It lasted for a good 4-5 hours on me that too with all the talking and snacking! Elle 18 lipsticks never stayed more than 1 hour on my lips!
Smell/taste: These smell like cocoa butter which is sweet and I don’t mind the fragrance because it doesn’t linger. It has a slightly bitter taste to it.
