Hello beautiful ladies,
After trying my hands on so many Elle 18 lipsticks I thought of trying their lip smoothies and so I brought one of those. These are not as famous as other Ell 18 products, but they do exist. These lip smoothies comes in just 5-6 different colors and the shade I brought is called vanilla heat. Vanilla heat is a shade of light brown which when seen in packaging seems to have small sparkle particles and a frosty finish.
The tube says 9ml but I really don’t understand how this small tube can have 9ml of product, but if it does have then it’s an amazing quantity for this price.
24 months from the date of manufacturing.
Vanilla heat comes in a little tube packaging with transparent body and a black cap. Like all Elle 18 products, this too has a lady printed on the packaging.
Like Elle 18 lipsticks even this does not have a list of ingredients on it, all it says it that it contains cocoa butter.
Deliciously beautiful lips in yummy fruit flavors. Smooth, glossy and super kissable.
My take on Elle 18 Lip Smoothie – Vanilla Heat:
This is the only lip smoothie I have so I can’t comment about the fruity smell in general but this particular one does have a vanilla kind of smell to it. Pigmentation wise, I am not very impressed with the product, it does not give any color to the lips. It seems to be a shade of brown in the packaging with a frosty look but unfortunately it is completely sheer on the lips. On lips it gives the effect of a colorless gloss. Personally I will use it over the lipsticks to give them a shine.
The smoothie is smooth to apply (as expected from the name ‘smoothie’) and due to the squeeze tube packaging easy to apply too. If we compare the price with the quantity, we get amazing quantity of 9ml for just Rs. 85. Staying power of this smoothie is just average, it’s just like any other simple gloss, stays for 1-2 hours without eating anything and if you eat something its completely gone. From the moisturization point of view, the smoothie does help to make the lips moisturized and we do not require a balm underneath. The smoothie in general is non sticky but after some time especially if you drink water or something and if the gloss is partially gone, it does start getting sticky. The lips do not feel comfortable after this point.
Overall for me this is an average product which is not bad if you consider the price and the quantity, but if you will buy it with some higher hopes then you might get disappointed. It is good for those people who like sheer glosses.
Pros of Elle 18 Lip Smoothie – Vanilla Heat:
• Good quantity
• Cute packaging
• Nice vanilla smell ( which may be a con for some people)
• Smooth to apply
• Small packaging makes it easy to carry even in a small purse.
Cons of Elle 18 Lip Smoothie – Vanilla Heat:
• Average staying power.
• Starts feeling sticky after sometime.
• Poor pigmentation especially if you have pigmented lips.
Would I buy Elle 18 Lip Smoothie – Vanilla Heat again?
No I will not buy them again, firstly because they are not available in many colors, and secondly I didn’t like it much.
Do I recommend Elle 18 Lip Smoothie – Vanilla Heat?
I will only recommend this if you are a teenager and just trying to start makeup as it is affordable but otherwise I would not recommend it.
