Today I am back with another lipstick from Elle 18, this is the last one I have. I was really happy with pink delight and pink blossom but this one is not really good. The Elle 18 color bomb lipsticks have few new shades in the range and today I am sharing a red lipstick. Read on to know more.
Cocoa Butter, Rose Water, Almond, Jojoba oil
The Elle 18 color bomb lipsticks come in a glossy black body. The lipstick cap fits properly and it is travel friendly. The packaging is quite decent considering the price.
The color crimson red is a maroon red color. It will suit all Indian skin tones and looks very pretty shade on the tube. The SA did not have a tester for this shade, so I just bought it without testing it. The lipstick looks very dark on the tube but on the lips it sheers out to a diffused red color. It adds an instant brightness to my face even without any makeup.
The lipstick has a very soft and creamy texture. The lipstick breaks at the base because of its creamy texture and it will also melt in very hot climate. It glides like butter on lips.
This lipstick is sheer and it does require at least 4-5 swipes to build up full color intensity. Take a look at my lip swatch; mole in my lip is still seen with 4 swipes of lipstick. I need to apply 4 – 5 swipes to fully cover my lip pigmentation.
It stayed on my lips for 3 hours, it might differ from person to person.

Cons of Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick in Crimson Red
• Staying power – but for the price I think I should not complain, other than this I really cannot find any con in this lipstick.
• It lacks pigmentation.
Repurchase and recommendation
Yes I will try other shades but not this one. I will recommend if you like sheer lipsticks and if you are looking out for a wearable diffused maroon red shade.
