Today’s review will be on a lipstick that I bought from Elle 18. The shade that I am reviewing in this post is “Ruby Red.”
With its special dual core lipstick format, Elle 18 Colour Boost gives you 6 hours of non-stop lip colour! Enjoy its creamy, soft texture enriched with extra moisturising cocoa butter in 10 amazing shades. Pout non-stop with Colour Boost’s non-stop lip drama.
My Experience with Elle 18 Ruby Red Color Boost Lipstick:
Packaging: 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.
Color/Pigmentation: “Ruby Red” is a dark red shade that looks more like maroon than red. It is a beautiful shade though. It is very similar to the shade ‘Maroon Love’ from this range. The pigmentation is superb. You get 95% opaque lips on just one swipe. You just need 2 coats for a nice bright pout. This shade is a universally-flattering shade which will suit all skin tones.
Texture: 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.
Staying Power: 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.
Pros of Elle 18 Ruby Red Color Boost Lipstick:
- Available in many shades.
- Very creamy texture.
- It has a lip balm in the center, so no need to use a separate lip balm.
- Gives a cream to satin finish.
- Non-drying on the lips.
- Glides very smoothly.
- Beautiful shade.

- Decent staying power.
- Universally-flattering shade.
Cons of Elle 18 Ruby Red Color Boost Lipstick:
- None I can think of.
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Elle 18 Ruby Red 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 them to you all because they are value for money!
