Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick in Raspberry Ripple Review & Swatches

Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick in Raspberry Ripple Review & Swatches
Elle 18 lipsticks are the best budget friendly lipsticks I have tried. They are not only well pigmented with gorgeous shades but feel moisturizing and comfortable on lips. Iced Chocolate and Prune Splash are my favorite shades among all as they match beautifully with my ethnic outfits. Today I am going to review Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick in Raspberry Ripple.

MBT says-
Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick comes in a chic black tube with a picture of a girl on the lid. There is no color representation on the outer part of the packaging making it difficult to identify the shade in case you hoard many from this range. The shade name and number are written on the sticker which is stuck at the bottom of the tube. The lid of the tube snaps shut satisfactorily and would not mess around in your makeup bag. The scent of the lipstick is mild and pleasant and won’t bother sensitive noses. There is cocoa butter layer in the center part of the lipstick to add moisture to the lips.

The formula of the lipstick is soft, smooth and creamy. It can be applied using a lip brush or directly from the bullet. With a firm grip on lipstick, it glides easily across my lips without bleeding, smudging or feathering but I always make sure to apply a lip liner for a more defined look. It is very moisturizing due to the presence of cocoa butter and I don’t feel the need to apply a lip balm underneath it. But if you have extremely dry lips, make sure you exfoliate your lips well and apply a good lip balm. It doesn't feel heavy or greasy on my lips. My lips feel soft, smooth and moisturized. The pigmentation is superb and gives true color in a single coat. You can always layer it up for a more dramatic effect. The lipstick provides full coverage and is a good bet for those who have heavy pigmented lips. The finish of the lipstick is smooth and even. The staying power is pretty average. It stays put on my lips for a good 3-4 hours with eating and drinking. After that it starts fading without leaving a tint (I always make sure to carry it in my bag for reapplication!). It transfers easily on mugs, cups or glasses. The lipstick is easily removed with a lip remover without staining or drying out the lips.

Raspberry Ripple is a gorgeous copper brown shade with golden shimmers that are very fine and hardly noticeable. It gives a smooth and even finish and does not settle in the fine lines of the lips. It looks gorgeous on ethnic dresses. It instantly brightens up my face. As I have geared towards pinks and reds more I had given it to my mom and she loves it a lot. This shade would also look flattering on fair skin tones.
