Elle 18 Color Pop Matte Lipsticks Review & Swatches

New Lipstick stock alert!!!

Buying new makeup makes me so happy. Seeing those little colourful lippies and eyeshadows makes me feel like a little kid in the candy shop. So, adding to my already flourished stock of lipsticks, I got myself 5 new lipsticks from Elle 18 Color Pop Matte Lipstick collection, these are so cute and colourful, so vibrant and budget-friendly, as we all love them!

Elle 18 is a popular brand in India that is known for producing high-end makeup products at a very cheap price. This is probably the go-to brand for every college going girl who wants to feel good but has a small budget. What I love most about the brand is they never compromise with the quality. I have been a fan of this brand since I was in High School. Seeing this Matte lipstick range in a new avatar and new shades, I had to try them. Let's have a look at the ones I got...

Each lipstick costs for Rs.100 for 4.3 grams. 

Selfie Red - R34

Selfie Red is a beautiful red with blue undertones and matte finish. Perfect for that date night...

Pink Show - P24

Pink Show is a beautiful pink with a mauve touch and matte finish. There is an underlying berry hue. The shade, though not unique, is very pretty and perfect for regular wear to offices and colleges.

Coral Dose - P22

Coral Dose is a vibrant orange shade with a neon touch. they have named it in their pink range, m not sure why. It was the first time I was using a bright neon-ish orange shade on my lips so it felt a bit loud. But with one swipe, you can work it out. If you do not like bright shades, better to avoid this one.

Rose Day - R31

Rose Day is a beautiful rose shade with a touch of fuchsia. It looks really bright and gorgeous on all skin tone. We all love such kind of vibrant pink shade that goes with any outfit. It is a nice shade for both day and night.

Deep Pink - P23

It is a hot pink shade with warm undertones. It does not have a perfect matte finish but a soft matte finish. This shade is great for everyday wear.

  • Not 100% matte

  • Won’t show up well on very dark complexion
  • Reapplication is required
  • Fades after a meal
  • Color-coded packaging would be better

Overall, at this price, I am happy with the product. They are doing a good job already. If you are looking for budget lipsticks with a wide range of colours, this is the brand you should have a look at.
