I am back with another Elle 18 Color Pops lipstick review. I had last reviewed the Berry Ice shade from this range and today I am reviewing the shade named “Frosted Cherry.” The shade number is 02. I am new to the world of lipsticks and I am trying to experiment with some colours to see the ones that best suit my complexion. Hence, I picked this one along with Berry Ice. Coming to this shade, it turned out to be a different colour than the one shown online which by the way, did not come as a surprise to me. I am not really disappointed, but at the same time, I am not happy with it as well.
Rs. 100 for 4.3 ml.
Only cocoa butter has been mentioned.
My Experience with Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick in Frosted Cherry:
As the name suggests, this lipstick is a beautiful cherry shade, but I am not too fond of it. I was a little surprised initially because the bullet somewhat showed a darker shade, but this lipstick turned out to be very sheer. The pigmentation is not great and I actually had to swipe it a couple of times for the true colour to show on my slightly pigmented lips. Later, I was okay with the subtle colour as it totally brightened up my face.
The staying power of this lipstick is extremely low. It barely stayed on my lips for 2 hours. I recently wore this lipstick to a family function. With a light meal in between, the lipstick vanished completely leaving behind only the shimmer. Not even a hint of colour was left. I had to re-apply this lipstick so that I did not end up looking funny. I would suggest applying a lip balm before applying this lipstick because without that, it tends to dry the lips within half an hour of application. The shimmer particles in this lipstick are really difficult to remove and bother me a lot. I sort of had to scrub my lips to remove all those shimmer particles. Never mind, I should not have expected miracles within 100 bucks.

- Shimmers are very difficult to remove.
