I hope you all had a good start to your weekend. I had a super one, met an old friend after two long years, but still the vibes of friendship were the same, it did not change at all. This is the best part of being friends. No matter how far you are, no matter after how many years you meet, but still the friendship remains unchanged. Anyway coming to today’s review, I am about to share with you my experience of Elle 18 color pop in the shade “Burgundy Wine.” Recently, I went crazy searching for a purple-kind of shade. Since it is not a color which can be applied regularly like the pinks and reds, so for trial purpose, I picked up Elle 18 Color Pops Burgundy Wine lipstick.
The lip color comes in a black case with a picture of a girl. The packaging is very girly. The bullet inside is nice and bold with an inner core of cocoa butter I guess.
125 INR for 4.3 ml.
My Experience with Elle 18 Color Pops Burgundy Wine Lipstick:
As I told you, I wanted to try a wine color very badly so as soon as I saw this shade, I picked it up that very moment. Let me begin with the shade description first. It can be considered to be a blend of purple and pink shades with the base tone remaining dark pink. Second, it is not completely matte, neither it is very glossy. It can be described as a very soft, moisturizing and an awesome lip shade you can get at this price.
The inner core which is white in colour helps in easy application of the lip color. You can easily glide the lipstick on without any effort. If you don’t like the shiny surface of the lip color on the lips, simply blot it with a tissue paper. I won’t describe it as a shade which can be applied by college-going girls, since it is a bit dark, but it is perfect for special night-time occasion where you want to choose a different yet elegant shade.
Also, the shade is perfect for moms. I am saying this because my mom has already grabbed the lip color from me and has put it her handbag, she loves it!
Talking about the staying power, this lipstick cannot be compared to your long-staying 14-hour long stay lip shades, but it has an average staying power of 2-3 hours. Reapplication is needed, especially post lunch.
One more thing, the moment you open the case and bring out the bullet, you can easily sniff the sweet fragrance. It won’t bother sensitive noses, I am pretty sure, rather you might like it. Most of the lip shades are fragrance free, but the glosses do have some fruity fragrance.
Overall, I bought this lip color not for daily wear, but only once in a while when I get bored of using the regular reds and pinks and I want to try something new. It is not at all a bad idea to keep such a color in your stash as you might want to try a new look.

Cons of Elle 18 Color Pops Burgundy Wine Lipstick:
- You might not the shade too appealing for daily wear if you are in your 20s, but you can try it once in a while for occasions.
