Today, I am sharing my first buy from Elle 18. I have never tried their products. As usual I saw the reviews about the recently launched lip balms, so all I concluded from the reviews was they were decent enough to give it a try. So I went ahead and bought one. The shade I bought is juicy peach, quite different from the rest of the colour range. Read on to know how the juicy peach 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 peach is a light peach colour. The colour is pretty and is devoid of any shimmer. I have a dusky skin complexion and lighter colour peach doesn’t go really well if I layer the colour too much. 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 peach 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, you really can’t expect it to cover lip pigmentation. I do have bad lip pigmentation problems and this is a turn off for me. I really think as it is a light colour it shows pigmentation more vividly.
Apart from all these I would also like to tell you all whether the product works as a lip balm? 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!

No I think one was enough to give it a try and this product would give you average colour and some moisturizing effect. Give them a try for the colour and price.
