I am back after my sister’s wedding and I missed IMBB so much. Today, I am sharing another lip balm from Elle 18. I got this as a gift from my sister. If you had read my review on Elle 18 lip balm in juicy peach, I was not convinced with the colour of the lip balm and was not happy with my purchase. I thought I wouldn’t like juicy mauve too before trying it, but to my surprise I quite liked juicy mauve and had been using it regularly. Read on to know how the juicy mauve performed on me.
What the product claims?
Soft and smooth
Hint of color
Formula contains: Olive oil, Jojoba oil, Vitamin e, SPF 15
The Elle 18 lip balms come in similar packaging like their lip smoothie range. The packaging is a simple clear tube with a black screw cap. The nozzle of the tube releases the lip balm only when squeezed, there is no trouble of product wastage by oozing and stuff. Overall it is a simple, sturdy and super travel friendly packaging.
The shade juicy mauve is a true mauvish purple colour. The colour is pretty and is devoid of any shimmer. I have a dusky skin complexion and the colour goes well. All I like to do is just swipe it across my lips for once, to get the moisture and a bit of colour.
Texture and pigmentation
The juicy mauve lip balm’s consistency is almost like a lip gloss. This consistency makes smooth application and as it is free from shimmer there is no stickiness. The pigmentation of the lip balms is below average, but juicy mauve is better in pigmentation than juicy peach. It does cover up my lip pigmentation to an extent.
The Elle 18 lip balm works below average for me as a lip balm. I did notice it adding little moisture like the regular lip glosses do, but really not like a lip balm would. I really would not reach this product to treat my chapped or dry lips. Overall you can get average colour plus little moisture with these.
The product stayed on me for one and half hours. Low staying power!
