My Experience with Elle 18 Lip Smoothie in the shade Berry Bomb:
When Elle 18’s color bomb range was introduced, everywhere the charcha or discussion was mostly about the nail pops and the eye sparklers, the two best products from the range, in my opinion. The review on IMBB for the lip smoothie told me that it was not a product I should spend my money on and so I bought some nail colors and eventually few lipsticks and eye sparklers. On my birthday, a friend gifted a clutch and in that clutch was this gloss and a pair of danglers.
I had initially thought of giving it to my maid’s daughter for her birthday, but then somehow I could not just give it to anyone without using or at least swatching it. So, then I swatched it, used it and after a week, it went as a second hand product to the maid’s daughter. The slant tip makes for easy application. The color is nice and would suit all skin tones. The lip gloss is kind of sheer and the shimmer is way too much. Also, it is sticky in consistency, which is something I don’t like at all. It takes at least 3 swatches to get the color in the tube. It gives a minty sensation on and around the lips for at least 5 minutes post application.
Like I had expected, it covers partly the pigmentation on my lips, but that too after 2 or 3 swipes. The staying power is pretty less. Also, it doesn’t fade evenly or neatly, the shimmer stays on the lips even after the color fades. It has to be removed with a wet cloth.
Anyway, let me sum up the pros and cons of the product for you:
