I am new in here in this beauty home. Welcome me with your lovely smiles and I’ll be really happy :)
Well, I am here to review a lipstick that can fit into anybody’s pocket. It’s a lipstick from Elle 18 color burst range named Roasty Red.
4.3 ml for Rs.100 (yeah, I’m not kidding :D)
This is my first ever Elle 18 lipstick. I always heard mixed reviews about them. I personally felt few of these lipsticks lack pigmentation and few seemed to be too frosty to suit the Indian skin tone. But I understand that these lipsticks are being targeted on the teenage girls who like to experiment and love to wear different colors. Anyway, I chose this particular shade because I’m in the “search of my perfect red” phase. This lipstick when I tried in the store, I felt it suited me so grabbed one.
Packaging: This Elle 18 lipstick comes in a black bullet case. It isn’t that thick or sturdy. The cap seems to break easily. The cap has a girl image which is a standard on this range.
Shade: The shade roasty red is a burnt brick red which falls in between red and maroon.
The lipstick lacks a proper texture. It lacks pigmentation (you need to swipe in twice or thrice to get the colour to pop on lips). I felt this particular shade is pretty okay with the pigmentation. The staying power is average. I loved the lip balm fixed in the center of the lipstick. It moisturizes my dry lips well. The lipstick tends to melt away easily and its is so soft that it can break too. It has a weird smell which would fade away after sometime. The lipstick goes away without leaving any stains.
