Elle 18 Color Boost Lipsticks Review
The lipsticks come in a pink and black packaging which is quite flimsy but considering the price, I’m not too picky about that. But one of the lipstick bullets got damaged during transit so one needs to be careful with these. The lipsticks have a very creamy, soft texture and have good color pay off. They give opaque coverage to the lips in 1-2 swipes. The lipsticks have a slightly different colored creamy core which adds softness to the lipstick. I was quite surprised at how much I liked these. I’ve tried 1-2 Color Pop lipsticks in the past from the brand and didn’t really like them. The Color Boost lipsticks on the other hand are quite nice and a good option for those looking for budget friendly lipsticks.
The lipstick has a strong caramel/vanilla scent which I don’t mind but may not be to everyone’s liking. The lighter colors tend to get a little patchy so they look best when patted down using fingertips to get rid of any unevenness. The darker colors look more uniform and even on the lips. The wear time varies from color to color. The lighter colors stay for about 2.5-3 hours while the darker colors stay for nearly 4 hours leaving a soft stain behind. I find these moderately hydrating and comfortable on the lips. Overall, I quite like these creamy, hydrating, pigmented lipsticks from Elle 18 and I think these would be good budget friendly options for college girls and for those on a budget.
Rating : 4/5
01 Miss Pink is a bright barbie pink shade.
05 Coral Nude is a nude creamy coral. Slightly prone to patchiness.
06 Blonde Pink is a pearly warm pink. The color is nice for daily wear if you don’t mind the slight shimmer.
07 Hollywood Pink is a brick red color. This would be great on deeper skin.
08 Red Passion is a rich reddish orange.
07 Hyper Orange is a creamy pastel orange. Slightly prone to patchiness.
10 Superlicious Red is reddish coral color. Perhaps my favorite from this bunch because its great for day as well as evening and would flatter a variety of skin tones!
