My Take on the product:

I always shared a love-hate kind of relationship with the brand Elle18. When the Color-burst range was launched i was excited as the whole packaging  was changed and looked appealing me to an extent. So i did not hesitate to pick few products as they are quite affordable. I bought the Color Burst lipstick in the shade Maroon Iris. As the name suggests its a nice Maroon shade.

In Natural Light:  ( One & Two Swatches )  :

In Sun Light:  ( One & Two Swatches )  :

  • The price!!
  • The packaging is cute and its sturdy too.
  • Does not dry out the lips.
  • One swipe builds up the color.
  • No ingredient list.
  • I totally dislike the smell.
  • Even they claim to have cocoa butter, it does not moisturize the lips.
  • Staying power is bad.

And this is how it looks on me… :)

Rating – 3/5

I am not going to purchase it again, but surely recommend to those who are on budget. After all it does a decent job for the price its coming for.:)


  1. oh yes the packaging is lovely. For a minute when you said colorburst I thought you were referring to the revlon colorburst line!

    1. oh these are not not even close to the Revlon ones. the price n quality both!! :)

  2. You have rated it 3 but this shade suits you like anything!

    1. oh..thank u Taps :)!! but i hate the fragrance and even the staying power is bad!! :(

  3. I didn't find it moisturizing at all even for the price, its not so good...But the shade seems to suit you.. :) You have a nice blog...wanna follow each other?? ^_^
