Today I’ll be reviewing Elle 18’s newly launched lipsticks. I bought a few of them as soon as I saw Raessa’s review. I’ll be reviewing others too, but let’s get started with Hollywood Pink today! 🙂

My Experience With Elle 18 Color Boost Hollywood Pink 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 lipstick from this range, 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 have a lip balm core, but apparently, these lipsticks don’t have the lip balm core. It’s a coloured core as you can see in the pictures.
Hollywood Pink is like a reddish pink lipstick that has some mauve in it. When you look very closely, you can see very fine shimmers in it. They do not appear on the lips whatsoever. But yes, there are extremely fine silver shimmers in it. It’s a great shade to wear for work and if applied lightly, you can wear it to college too! I like that this colour would look good on all skin tones and also on women of all ages. It is a very nice shade. I’m loving it! It is very pigmented too. One swipe transfers almost 90% of the colour. Only two coats are sufficient for nice pouty lips 🙂
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 moisturize 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. When you put this on, it feels like you’re applying a lip balm, as the consistency is very similar.
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! :p This shade did leave a tint behind, which made my lips look naturally pink. 🙂
Smell/taste: It has a sweet cocoa smell to it which doesn’t linger at all. In fact, you’d have to smell it from the tube because it is so mild. It does have some taste, but I don’t mind it. 🙂
