My Experience with Elle 18 Color Pops Silk Lipstick C11:
Like always this new Elle 18 Silk lipstick comes in a cute black packaging with a lovely girl’s face printed over the cap. But the packaging is common to all lipsticks by Elle 18, so it is quite difficult to identify a particular shade. Also this range doesn’t contain any shade name and I don’t like to remember it by such numbers. Otherwise, the cute tube is easy to carry around & like this super affordable, cute and girly packaging.
The W11 is a beautiful bright warm dark orange with a hint of red. It is good for all skin tones, especially it’s a lovely summery shade that looks very bright on skin. It looks different under various lights but I personally love such orange. The shade doesn’t have any shimmer in it. Now, the shade is well pigmented but it requires few swipes to occupy the lips fully. I found it little less Pigmented than the rest Shades.
Texture & Quality:
As the name already described it as a Silk Lipstick so it has super smooth and soft texture that glides so buttery on the lips and provides an even occupied finish. This formula has a nice silky creamy texture which never dries out my lips. Hence, after a few hours, it settles down to a nice stain.
Its rich creamy formula deeply hydrates my skin and keeps lips soft for long. It is good enough for dry lips and never highlights dry patches too. The formula is non patchy, light weight and a very comfortable one. But, after a meal, center of my lips feel a little dry; this problem can be solved with a lip balm.
Now, like all other creamy lipsticks, it does transfer & fade a lot. Still, it doesn’t create a mess around the lip area. It never creases and doesn’t settle into fine lines either.
It’s not a long lasting lipstick but it stays nicely for around 4 hours without having anything heavy. After 4 hours, it starts to look faded and then it leaves a light stain on the lips. It can’t survive lunch; but it can survive normal light snacks. It always requires reapplication; but the application is quite easy because of the formula. Only a remover wipe is required to remove the color from the lips.
According to its price, it is absolutely a nice product. It gives a nice, non-drying, hydrating creamy finish with a decent staying power.
