My review on Elle18 color pops
Matte lipstick in Lets Tango:

Packaging: The lipstick comes in
Elle18’s signature packaging. It has black plastic body in which a pretty
graphic of a girl printed. Shade name and number are mention at the bottom.
There is no color coded thing-y by which one can easily recognize the shade.
The whole packaging is a bit flimsy I feel. 

Shade: A true orange color with
warm undertone, very refreshing, very summery and beautiful. 

Pigmentation:  Pigmentation is pretty decent. The exact color
comes in 2-3 swipes. It covers my pigmented lips well.
Texture and formula: It has soft
creamy texture which glides smoothly on the lips. It doesn’t deliver striking
matte finish rather than a glossy matte finish. For the creamy texture it does
transfer and bleed. Formula is quite hydrating to the lips. No need to apply
lip balm underneath as formula doesn’t dry out lips and settle into lip lines.
Staying Power and color payoff:
It stays put for more than 3 hour with little fading. It doesn’t survive any kind
of food. It leaves a beautiful stain over time.


  • Good quality.
  • Dirt Cheap.
  • Creamy matte texture.
  • Glides smoothly.
  • Hydrating formula.
  • Comfortable to wear.
  • Good pigmentation.
  • Decent staying power.
  • Cute and travel friendly
  • Easily available.


  • Does transfer and bleed.
  • Not flat matte finish.
  • Doesn’t stay long like any other
    matte lipsticks.

Rating: 3.5/5.

Final verdict: According to the price tag, I can’t complain
more. I like the quality, shade and texture. It has a variety of shades as
well, from pink to red to purple to brown. So I would definitely suggest you to
give it a go, I’m sure you will enjoy this range.
