My Experience With Elle 18 Color Pops Matte Lipstick First Love
My skin-tone: Medium fair with warm undertones
After using Selfie Red from the same range, I knew that it is not going to be completely matte, but demi-matte. And I needed such lipsticks to use during Winters. The lipstick itself feels very comfortable on my lips and I do not require a lip balm as this does not dry out my lips. Without much thought I can always skip lip balm when it comes to Elle 18 Matte Lipstick.
These matte lipsticks from Elle 18 comes in a flimsy black bullet packaging, with a cartoon girl’s face on it. The twist-up mechanism works completely fine and the lipstick also closes tight with a ‘tick’ sound. I have carried the bullet with me many times and the lipstick stays close. But at the end of the day I found small droplets formed on it. I was afraid that the lipstick may break anytime while applying, but it didn’t! And the droplets also disappeared after certain time. All the important information is mentioned on the bullet except ingredient list.
Shade and fragrance
The shade name and number is mentioned on a sticker which is at the bottom of the lipstick. “First Love” is pretty bright pink shade with slight purple undertones and a hint of neon. Very poppy and girlish kind of color and also makes photos appear cute! The fragrance of this lipstick is very very yummy- mix of vanilla and chocolate! I always find my myself sniffing on the bullet before applying the lipstick. And the fragrance also stays on lips for a while then it completely disappears.
Texture and finish
Its texture is very smooth and buttery. It glides easily and feels very light on my lips. The lipstick doesn’t feather or bleed. In the beginning, after applying the lipstick it looks more of a satin finish but after sometime it settles into demi-matte finish, making lips feel hydrated. In normal room temperature it appears demi-matte while in lower temperature it turns matte and settles into dry patches. So, if you have dry and chapped lips and work in AC room, you would need to scrub your lips prior to application.
Coverage and pigmentation
This lipstick is very pigmented! With one swipe you can see yourself. The pigmentation is also buildable. However, 2-3 swipes are required for the true color to show up on lips. My lips are not very pigmented, they are between pink and light brown color. But my upper lip is little bit more pigmented than my lower lip and the lipstick covers my natural lip pigmentation very well. I’m assuming that it will provide good coverage to more pigmented lips than mine too. If not then you can use foundation as a base for your lips.
This lipstick easily lasts for 4 hours after which it starts fading. But I could still make out the color and the effect, just lesser in pigmentation. It transfers just like any other lipstick but the color doesn’t completely disappear from the lips. So that’s great! The lipstick survives mild snacking but not a full meal. After meal it starts disappearing from the insides of the lips and leaves a cute stain on lips. Anyways, I am in the habit of applying lipstick after meals so this doesn’t bother me.
When I do not have much time to do makeup, I use this lipstick and I am done for the day! I also have used this lipstick with makeup and it looks more stunning!
