When you enter the world of lipsticks, the most basic colors you look out for are pink and red. These two colors are good enough for completing the vanity of a beginner. Now, as a beginner you do not go straight ahead to buy high end lipsticks. Initially, you look out for budget friendly options to see what color suits you. Elle 18 is one of the pocket friendly brands which target basically the beginners. This is an Indian cosmetic brand. The Elle 18 color pop lipsticks are completely affordable. They retail for Rs 120. Net weight of this lipstick is 4.3 ml.
Elle 18 Color pop lipstick comes in a jet black plastic case. It has hints of pink onto it and an animated Gothic girl is drawn on the same. One thing that I noted was that the cap of these lipsticks would easily open as soon as they fall. Unfortunately, such an accident would make the content vulnerable to shatter. Though, the plastic is not very high grade, yet it isn’t too flimsy or breakable. After several months the detailing over the lipstick would surely start fading, as you can clearly see in the pictures.
The lipstick has core of cocoa butter in between and color pigment as outer layering. These lipsticks are highly moisturizing and you don’t necessarily need a lip balm underneath. There’s no tugging felt while application on lips. The pigment is quite commendable at this price. One flaw of this would be the staying power. It does not stay long or can withstand meals. It transfers too. Re- application is a must with these.
