My Experience with Elle 18 Color Boost Brown Berry lipstick:
Packaging: Elle 18 lipstick tubes are really girly and cute. The plastic tubes may feel flimsy but they definitely are not boring. For the price, I think it is functional and decent enough. Only thing is that, they are not color coded and I have a hard time checking for a particular shade since I own many.
Shade: Brown berry is a really beautiful reddish-brown, with maroonish hints. The outer layer is maroonish-brown whereas the core is orange. The orange adds a unique combination and gives out a different color altogether. It brightens up my face instantly, but on the other hand I am not comfortable wearing this shade on an everyday basis.
Texture and pigmentation: The texture is very smooth and buttery. It absolutely melts on lips even though they are not prepped. But, on the other hand the creamy texture gives a tendency for the lipstick to crease and bleed. Layering is not recommended as it bleeds. Pigmentation is above average; two swipes and I am done. I notice that at the end of the day it makes my lips dry and dull which is a little annoying.
Lasting power: It has become a fact that Elle 18 lipsticks do not last that long at all. True that, but this one lasts good enough compared to others provided, I blot it and reapply. It lasts about 3.5 hours on an average. It doesn’t survive meals, sadly. And the transferring part is a headache!
But I am really happy enough with it, as it is super affordable and offer some nice shades as well.
