Hey Girls!

Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick Hot Pink Review

I am back again with another Elle 18 lipstick review.  I had reviewed the shade “Cinnamon Bun” on IMBB a few days back and Neha has been reviewing many more from this range (Pinken, Roasty Red, Rusty, Pomegranate Pie, and what not! :D).  So, here I have another one from the same range and I can safely say that this has turned out to be one of my favourites so far! A few days back one of my friends had suggested that I should try “Hot Pink” from Elle 18, and I am so glad I did!  I am generally into lip glosses, sheer or n*de lip colors. So, for a change, I decided to try on this one from Elle 18.


Rs. 100 for 4.3 ml.

Shelf Life:

30 months.

Hot Pink 2


The color is a lovely hot pink with mauve undertones. It will suit almost all skin tones except maybe too dusky ones. True to its name, it instantly gives a “pop of color” to the face. Ideal for night time wear. You can wear it during day time too if you are in a habit of using bold lip colors unlike me.

Hot Pink 3


Creamy, buttery, soft, too soft.  The lipstick breaks at the base sometimes, and because its so buttery, lip brush will tend to take up more product than is required. It moisturizes lips perfectly, just like any other high-end brand.  It must be with this particular shade as I did not find “Cinnamon Bun” as moisturizing, even though it had the white lip balm-like thing in the centre.

Insanely pigmented! I mean, I really did not expect this much pigmentation from this range. It stayed on my lips for a good 3-and-half hours without any touch ups, but that might differ from person to person. Have a look at the lipstick bullet closely and the swatch on my wrist.

Cons of Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick:  Hot Pink
