My Experience On Elle 18 Color Boost Soft Nude 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.
Soft Nude is a milky brown based nude colour that has a little bit of orange undertones to it. But nothing serious. It’s a very pretty shade and very aptly named. I really like the subtle shade. It is perfect for day time looks and for working women. In fact, I bought this so that my Mom could wear it to work every day. It’s a really pretty shade and I wouldn’t mind wearing this sometimes! It is very pigmented. 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
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 🙂
