Today I am going to review the Elle 18 Lipstick in Fresh Orchids shade. This range is available in around 25 different shades. Don’t forget to check them out.
Rs.100 for 4.3g
None mentioned except Cocoa butter
Packaging: The packaging style is completely in plastic and the cap is really cute and chick!
Color, Texture and Fragrance: The color is in tone of light maroon with a dash of copper but it does not look very loud. The shade Fresh Orchids is as refreshing as the name! ;) And in my view, it should go with any skin tone. It is a pretty girly shade nice to wear to office or any casual outing. Texture wise it is non-sticky and mildly glossy. To get the compelete hue on your lips, 2 applications are a must. However,the texture is really light. You will just feel as if you have applied a lip balm.
The fragrance of this lipstick is nice and good. It makes you feel good at the very onset of the day. What better idea to soothe your senses when you have a long tiring day at work ahead of you! The fragrance lasts for a good half an hour, if not more!
How it works: application is easy but at least 2 coats are a must. It is mildly glossy due to the added cocoa butter in the centre but that leaves the lips well nourished. The shine however is very natural and does not look awkward. Bliss for those with dry lips since you get to enjoy both colour and moisture! It stays on for about 2 hours on me. After that,you might need another touch up.
Overall, this lip color provides nice moisturizing effect that makes your lips really supple! :) The rich moisture makes the application very easy and helps the lipstick glide smoothly.

Do I Recommend?:
Yes. This is a must try budget lipstick! If the shade suits you well and good otherwise it is not at all heavy on pocket. The color is very fresh and can even be used as a blush as well. The cocoa butter leave your lips well nourished and soft. The fragrance is appealing. Last but not the least, the reliability of Elle 18!!
What else can we possibly ask for in 100 bucks? :D You can make an entire collection of these color pops at a reasonable price! Go try out some other shades for yourself. From my side it is a definite thumbs up!!
Would I Repurchase?:
Yes. I already have purchased another shade of the same range. And will fetch myself some more! ;)
