We all have read so much about the Elle 18 Color Pops range on IMBB and reading those reviews, I thought of trying the lipsticks from this range. I have always been a lip balm person and did not think I could pull off lipsticks very well. I went for this brand as it is cost effective and for a starter like me, I could experiment with a lot of colours without thinking about the cost. The shade that I am reviewing today is called “Berry Ice” and the shade number is 23.
Rs. 100 for 4.3 ml.
Only cocoa butter has been mentioned.
My Experience with Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick in Berry Ice:
I had actually ordered this lipstick along with some other stuff online a while ago. I have started using it lately and I am amazed that at such a price, we get a decent quality product. The lipstick is a beautiful pink with mauve undertones. It is very sheer and does not show well with one swipe. I actually need to swipe it a couple of times for the true colour to show on my lips. This lipstick has some shimmer particles which are not to my liking. As I tend to build up the colour, the shimmers get enhanced. Also, these shimmer particles are a little difficult to remove.
The staying power of this lipstick is very low. It stayed on my lips for only 2 hours without any meal in between. If I would have had a meal, I guess the lipstick would have gone off completely leaving behind only the shimmers. Thank God, I didn’t eat when the lipstick was on. The lipstick tends to dry my lips after some time. So, it is best to apply a lip balm before applying this lipstick.
Pros of Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick in Berry Ice:
- Beautiful colour.
- Extremely affordable.
- Does not feel heavy on the lips even after layering.
- Packaging is sturdy and travel friendly.
- Will suit almost all skin tones.
- Available online as well as small beauty stores.
Cons of Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick in Berry Ice:
- Ingredients list is missing.
- Staying power is very low.
- Not quite pigmented.
- Shimmers are difficult to remove.
Will I Repurchase Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick in Berry Ice?
I will look for some other shades from this range, but not this shade in particular. I like the colour as well as the quality of the product. Just that I wish this lipstick was without shimmers.
Do I Recommend Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick in Berry Ice?
Yes, but to only those who don’t mind shimmers in their lipstick. Those who are not too fond of shimmers, should stay away from this one.
4/5 (-1 for shimmers and staying power).
