Few months back, Elle 18 launched their new cosmetics range. Juicy lip balms were also in the new range. There are 6 different shades of lip balms available. And, today I will be reviewing Elle 18 Juicy Lip Balm in Juicy Berry shade.
Price & Quantity:
Rs. 110 for 9 ml.
Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E & SPF 15.
My Experience with Elle 18 Juicy Lip Balm Juicy Berry:
Packaging: The packaging is very simple and somewhat boring also. It comes in a tube packaging with a screw cap at the bottom. The tube packaging may not be attractive or special but sure is hygienic.
Texture: The texture of this lip balm is more of a thick lip gloss. I am not sure if we can categorize this one as lip balm. The formula is very thick and quite pigmented also. In spite of the thickness in consistency, it is neither waxy not sticky.
It gives a super shining glossy effect on the lips, as I said, like lip gloss.
Shade: Juicy berry shade is peachy shade mixed with raspberry, I guess. The shade looks bit lighter on the lips. It covers my pigmented lips quite well and reflects as a pretty pink lip gloss on my lips. I have medium Indian skin tone, and this shade suits me well, so it will look even more beautiful on lighter skin tone.
Staying Power: The glossy effect stays for 2-3 hours, after that, it starts to pale. The lips though stay moisturized and nourished for at least 4 hours. After that, it needs reapplication, and also after having food.
For those, who are wondering if it really has SPF as it claims or not, I would say, yes it has. Want to know the reason, (sigh! Okay!) SPF gives me allergy every time I expose it under direct sunlight (There, said it!), and when last time I wore it and forgot my umbrella at home, I got allergies. I know, it is just a theory, but believe me! But no worries there isn’t any problem in this product, problem is in my skin only.
The Good Points:
- Handy packaging, travel friendly
- Well pigmented
- Gives a glossy finish
- Pretty peachy pink shade
- Suits Indian Skin Tone
- Keeps lips nourished
- Has SPF 15
The Not-so-Good Points:
- Staying power is average.
- Full ingredients list is missing.
MABH Rating: 4.5/5.
Elle 18 Juicy Berry is a pretty peach lip gloss or lip balm per se! It stays for an average time period; it looks nice on Indian skin tones. In my opinion, this lip balm is just perfect for college or ever casual day outings. It gives that girly look and the high shine glossy finish adds bit glamour to my simple BB cream and kohl make up look.
