Elle18 Color Pops Matte lipstick Mauve Date:Swatch and Review

by - July 25, 2016

Hello everyone,
Matte lipsticks are totally in these days. Many beauty bloggers rave about these matte lippies. So as I promise, I am going to share some affordable matte lipsticks in my few posts. Today in my very first post I am reviewing one of the most affordable and good matte lipstick, i.e Elle18 Color Pops Matte lipstick in the shade Mauve Date. Like most of the brand i.e  Loreal, Maybelline, Lakme, Faces etc; Elle18 also launched their Matte Lipsticks recently. They have launched 20 shades in this range.

My Review on Elle18 Color Pops Matte lipstick Mauve Date:

Packaging: It has the common Elle18 packaging; comes in a cute black plastic case with a graphic printing of a girl on the cap. Packaging is cute and travel friendly. But the bullet case is not that sturdy.

Shades: As the name suggest, it is deep purple with a hint of brown in it. The brown makes it more wearable. It does not have shimmer in it. I can wear it in my office and in any night out or dinner date as well.
Texture: The texture is not super matte finish; rather I found it soft and creamy matte.  Bullet is easily glided on lips, no need to pull off very much. The formula is non-drying and hydrating to the lips. No need to apply lip balm underneath. It does not settle down to fine line or accentuated dry patches of the lips.
Smell: It has mild smells, exactly like the other Elle18 lipsticks nothing fancy.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is quite decent. The exact color comes with only two swipes. It coves my pigmented lips very well. But it is not totally transfer proof, it does bleed.
It stays on my lips for good 3-4 hrs, after that leaves behind a beautiful stain which I liked very much.
