I hope you all are doing well. Although I do not wear heavy makeup, I still like reading reviews about different cosmetic products. For me usually makeup is limited to eye makeup and a lip gloss. And it amazes me how a little bit of makeup can change your look completely. Lately I have been reading a lot of reviews of Elle 18 color pops matte lipstick. And frankly speaking it compelled me to buy one. I’m actually new to the world of makeup and this is my first purchase. ELLE 18 is one of the most perky and affordable brand available in the market. They have come up with some stunning matte lipstick shades. All these shades are pretty awesome. I love the Matte lip colors as they look stunning when worn.
They have something for everyone in this range. The shades available are Rose Day, Deep Pink, Prom Pink, Pink Show, Pink Kiss, Rockstar Red ,Code Red, Selfie Red, First Love, Grape Riot, Cherry Wine, Berry Dance, Berry Bestie, Mauve Date, Chocolate Day, Choco Bite, Belgian Brown, Rust Rage, Coral Dose and Lets Tango .So I’m going to review one of the shades in this post.
Shade no. P22 Coral dose. Here with letters like ‘R’ or ‘P’ with the shade number indicate the house they belongs to, like Red or Pink.
This shade falls in Pink category. The color is very vibrant and will suit all skin tones and especially on people with wheatish complexion. The lipstick claims to be matte but is not completely matte. It gives a creamy-matte effect and turns completely matte as the time passes. This gives an orange color to your lips which looks very attractive even with minimal makeup. The shade is shimmer free. You need two swipes for the color to show up completely. It has smooth, soft and creamy texture and glides easily on the lips. The lipstick feels comfortable on lips and leaves a nice orangish stain after sometime.
As I said this was my first purchase and I completely loved it. I got lot of compliments when I wore it for the first time. And I realized how a swipe of lipstick across your lips can make you look different – beautiful and attractive. I felt amazing about myself. This shade can be worn at night as well as during the day. This shade is best when worn in summer but looks cool in winter too. It stays on my lips for 4-5 hours. This time may vary according to the food and fluid you consume.
Details of the shade:
Price: Rs.100 (pocket friendly) for 4.3g
Availability: Very easily available in cosmetic local stores.
Shelf Life: 24 months
Elle 18 Color Pops Matte Lipsticks have a very girly packaging. They are encased in a cute black plastic case with a flat top and a twist up body. The name of the lipstick is mentioned on the cap along with an anime of a beautiful girl. This packaging is common in all the Elle 18 lipsticks. Shade name, number and shelf life are mentioned on the bottom. Its light weight and easy to carry while traveling

So if you are a beginner or among those who don’t like investing much on lipsticks should go for it. If you are trying orange shade for the first time this is ideal.
