My Experience with Elle 18 Maroon Love Color Boost Lipstick:
This lipstick falls in the “Color Boost” range which have bright pink lids. It’s super feminine and gorgeous packaging. The shade name and number is printed on a sticker at the bottom. If you have more than one lipstick from this range, then it might take some time to spot the shade you are looking for. The packaging is slightly flimsy but it is cute.
‘Maroon Love’ is a light maroon shade that looks more like red than maroon. It is a beautiful shade, though. It is very similar to the shade ‘Ruby Red’ from this range. The pigmentation is superb. You get 95% opaque lips in just one swipe. You just need 2 coats for a nice and bright pout. This shade is a universally flattering and will suit all skin tones. I’m slightly disappointed with this shade because I expected it to be like an oxblood shade, but it’s too light.
This lipstick is super creamy and feels very moisturising on the lips. It doesn’t dry out the lips at all and feels comfortable to apply even on dry lips. I usually skip a lip balm if I use this. This lipstick glides easily on the lips and comes as creamy to satin finish. It settles to a matte finish as the day progresses. It wouldn’t tug or pull on the lips even with a creamy formula.
This lasts for about 4-5 hours without a lip liner and on its own. This new formula lasts better than the previous formula. I like this one way better. It fades a bit while eating/drinking but every lipstick does that. This lipstick fades evenly so when I don’t want to reapply the lipstick, I’ll just use a lip balm over and I’m done. It looks like I’ve applied a tinted lip balm.

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Elle 18 Maroon Love Color Boost Lipstick?
I already have all the new shades, so I won’t repurchase these. Finishing off these lipsticks would take me years! I’ll definitely recommend you all to try these because these offer good value for money!
