Elle 18 Color Boost Hollywood Pink Lipstick - Review, Swatches

Thursday, September 10, 2015

Elle 18 has been a favorite brand specially for young girls. I've tried their nail pops range and loved it. Recently, they launched Color Boost lipsticks which claimed to be better than the previous range in terms of pigmentation and staying power. I've bought Hollywood Pink shade 07 from the range. Let's see how it fared for me.

Price and Quantity: Rs. 150/- for 4.3 ml

Shelf Life: 3 years

What it Claims?
With its special dual core lipstick format, Elle 18 Colour Boost gives you 6 hours of non-stop lip colour! Enjoy its creamy, soft texture enriched with extra moisturizing cocoa butter in 10 amazing shades. Pout non-stop with Colour Boost’s non-stop lip drama!

Elle 18 Color Boost Lipstick in Hollywood Pink comes in a cute neon pink cap with a black base. Lipstick has a dual core format with an orange colored centre which is tinted as well. Packaging is sturdy and shuts tight so no need to worry and toss without thinking into the purse. Details about shade is printed on the back of lipstick.

My Experience: After a lot of searching, I bought this shade, Hollywood Pink. As the name suggests chic and girly, shade is beautiful too. It's reddish pink but towards the pink side more, with silver shimmers. I don't like shimmers but I love this shade! 

It's damn pigmented, in fact much more than previous ones. One swipe covers whole lips and glides smoothly. I adore its creamy finish that settles into semi-matte after a while but silver shimmers make it appear bit glossy. It also settles in fine lines and accentuate them. I have pigmented lips and it takes care of it. Two swipes cover pigmentation very well. It will flatter every skin tone and even brighten up dark/dusky beauties.

I love the chocolatey smell of cocoa which lingers for few minutes. Lipstick is very moisturizing and I don't need any lip balm beneath it.
Talking about it's staying power, it stayed on my lips for at least 3-4 hours and after that it started fading but shimmers never seem to fade. It survives drinks but after a full meal it fades a bit. Nobody could complain at this price. I once applied lip balm under it and due to this it faded quickly so I didn't use it next time. I'm appealed by its quality and texture!

Now the lip swatches, ta-da...

under natural light

● Pretty shade that will flatter and suit every complexion.
● Well pigmented
● Pocket friendly price.
● Leaves lips moisturized and cocoa smells lovely.
● Staying power is improved.

● Availability. It's there in stores but not easily available online. Even if you find them, shades will be limited so I recommend purchasing it from stores.
● Silver shimmers bother me. Not a con for everyone but for me, it is.
● Accentuates fine lines but scrubbing lips before applying will help.

Final Words: I'm glad I got this lipstick from Elle 18. It's pigmented, stays longer, moisturizes lips, smells good and price won't affect your purse too. This range has mind blowing shades and I'm looking forward to get more and review it for you all :)

Rating: 4/5
