Elle 18 Color Pop Matte Lipsticks Review, Swatches

Hi guys,

I know this post has been much requested, I got the package late as it went to my old address, but finally here is the review..

Shades Available: 20

MRP: Rs.100/- (Buy HERE)

If you remember my previous Color Pop Boost Lipsticks review, I absolutely loved them! So Elle 18 came up with this matte range recently, let’s see what I think of it..

It comes in the black Elle 18 packaging with a round shape on top and the trademark cartoon print on it. The Color Boost Lipsticks were priced at Rs.150 and these ones are even cheaper at Rs.100. Also those were in 10 shades, while this new range has 20 shades!

Packaging is kind of ok, it is a little flimsy but the cap shuts tight. At 100 bucks, I cannot expect a fancy packaging and I am pretty ok with this.

In terms of pigmentation, they are amazing. All the swatches you see here are 2 swipes each. 2 swipes will give you full, opaque coverage on the lips.

Staying power is also pretty decent, they stayed for 5-6 hours on me without eating/drinking and about 4 hours with light snacks/drinks. Even after food, it doesn’t go away completely. Also leaves a nice, deep stain behind.

They come off easily with any makeup remover/cleanser. It does get into fine lines on the lips, but doesn’t accentuate them.

Please excuse the dryness around my lips, the skin there is behaving really bad and that particular dry patch is just not going, whatever I use! It comes right back even with oils, as soon as I stop using them :/

My favourites are Deep Pink, Rose Day and Chocolate Day. Chocolate Day is the perfect fall/winter shade. I can’t wait to check out more shades. Only con with this is availability. They would only be available at local beauty stores, online on Amazon they have high delivery charges.

If you find them at a store near you, grab them! You won’t be disappointed, these are absolutely amazing. Highly recommend. Total value for money at Rs.100/-
