Hello beautiful ladies,
I am back with another lip product and this time it’s from an extremely affordable brand. I am talking about Elle 18 Color Pops. These lipsticks come in numerous shades ranging from extreme light to extreme bright and dark. I brought 4 of these: Hot Pink, Rusty, Wildberry Wet and Grape Rain. Today I will share my views on the darkest of these all: Grape Rain.
As you all must have seen, these lippies come in an all black packaging with a cute animated girl printed on the cap.
What company claims:
A blast of color with the punch of cocoa. Available in 25 trendy shades, the intense moisturizing core protects your lips.
The ELLE 18 range designed in cool shapes has explosively vibrant colors for lips, nails and eyes. The products are packed with the goodness of Cocoa butter, Jojoba Oil, Rose Water and Almonds. These super cute ‘patakas’ are sure to pack your day with explosive excitement!
My take on the Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick – Grape Rain
After reading the name Grape Rain, anyone can easily guess the color and the color gives full justice to the name. Grape Rain is dark purple color with little silver shimmers in it. The lipstick is extremely affordable and is of good quality. I loved the color when I bought it, but when I applied it I realized that it’s not an easy color to carry. The shimmers in the lipstick is not a major problem for me as due to its dark color I would only be using it in parties during the night time and I don’t mind shimmers on such occasions.
The thing I like the most in these lipsticks is the amazing fragrance, some people may dislike the fact that it smells like cocoa butter but I love it. When I brought it, I continuously opened the cap just to smell the product. The fact that it contains cocoa butter makes it extremely soft and easy to apply, lips do feel a little dry after removing the lipstick but while the lipstick is on, it feels like you have applied a lip butter. Another little point I would like to share is that the shimmers becomes a little difficult to remove. Even after the lipstick is removed, the shimmer particles can be seen on the lips.
As I mentioned earlier, the packaging is all black and the cap is round at the top. I like the packaging for its cuteness but I am not very comfortable with such kind of packaging as it becomes difficult to select the desired color. Another way of getting the selected color is keeping the lipstick upside down but this is not possible with this due to the curved cap. The lipstick cannot stand upside-down.
The staying power of the lipstick is also fine. It can stay for a good amount of time if you do not eat anything, but after having dinner the color from the centre of the lips fades giving it an ombre effect and eating further converts the lipstick into a lip liner (lipstick can only be seen on the edges of the lips)
Pros of Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick – Grape Rain:
• Comes in a huge variety of shades.
• Cute packaging.
• The lid is tight and can be easily kept in the bag without the fear of damaging the product, in other words I can say that the packaging is travelling friendly.
• Amazing smell.
• Very smooth to apply.
Cons of Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick – Grape Rain:
• Average staying power.
• Shimmers are difficult to remove.
Would I buy Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick – Grape Rain again?
I already have 4 of these but I am thinking of expanding my collection as I like these cute black bottles on my dresser, plus they are really affordable.
Do I recommend Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick – Grape Rain?
Yes of course, I do recommend this product as it is a product that is a mixture of affordability and quality. You can think about the color though.
