We are living in a matte obsessed world right now. Everyone is obsessed with mattes and its the talk of the town. Hence we see every other brand coming up with their new collections of different shades of mattes and honestly, I am loving it. Today I have with me the most affordable matte lipstick with me. It’s from Elle 18 color pops matte lipstick collection and the shade belongs to the family of reds and is called Red Spin. Its shade number is R36.
Elle 18 Color Pop Matte Red Spin Lipstick Review
Appearance: These lipsticks come in super cute and travel-friendly packaging. Elle 18 changed the packaging a little and it looks much cuter now. It has a black body with a normal twist and turns lipstick. The shade name, number and shelf life details are mentioned on the back and the logo and cute anime on the front. I found the packaging to be really cute. I am sure it will appeal to a lot of college students.
Price: Rs.100 for 4.3gms.
Shelf life: 24 months.
Hows The Pigmentation Of Elle 18 Color Pop Matte Lipsticks?
It has wonderful pigmentation and in one swipe the color shows up on your lips. However, the color on the lipstick appears dark and to achieve the same color on lips you need to apply two-three coats on the lipstick. On the hand, the swatch you see is of one swipe and its not bad at all. I mean for the price we are paying they are amazing.
What About The Texture?
The lipstick is creamy butter soft and has a wonderful satin finish. You need to dab on some powder if you desire a completely matte finish. In case if you are going to a party you can finish it up with little gloss on top and it just changes the entire game. The lipstick glides like a dream on the lips and leaves its impression in one go. It smells oh so nice too. If you have dry lips I would recommend you exfoliate well and apply some lip balm beforehand. Although these moisturize lips well.
The formula of the lipstick is buildable. Although these are dark enough but in case if you desire darker color, you can build it.
Staying Power Of These Lipsticks
To my surprise the color stays on for 4 hours before it starts fading. It, however, does not completely transfer and smudge proof. It also lightens after meals. But still manages to leave its pigment of your lips well.
