Review - Elle18 Color Burst Lipstick - Roasty Red

Hi Girls!!

Today's review is on Elle18 Color Burst Lipstick in the shade Roasty Red which is a nice muted red.

What the Product Claims:

A blast of color with the punch of cocoa. The intense moisturizing core in the center protects and cares for your lips.
Price: Rs.100/- for 4.3ml

Shelf life: 30 Months from the Date of Manufacture
My Take on the product:

I always wanted to try out bold red lip sticks but i lack the courage to carry it well. So i always look out for muted reds that look sober and yet give me some nice color on my lips. When i saw Elle-18 color pops i thought these are the best ones to try out as they very very affordable. There are so many shades in this range. The one i got is Roasty Red. I previously had Maroon Iris which i reviewed HERE. I liked the packaging, its cute and non-fussy. The shade is a nice muted red that goes sheer in the first few swipes. Its a nice shade to have. But the staying power of these lipsticks is so poor. Hardly lasts for 3 hours.

  • The price!!
  • The packaging is cute and its sturdy too.
  • Does not dry out the lips.
  • The shade is good.
  • No ingredient list.
  • Staying power is bad.
  • The lip stick melts and breaks from the base!!

And this is how it looks on me… :)
Rating – 3/5 
Overall a nice budget friendly lipstick with so many shades to choose from.
