Elle 18 Color Boost Lipstick In Superlicious Red Review and Swatches!




Elle 18 Color Boost Lipstick In Superlicious Red Review and Swatches!

ISLM Writer: Ishleen

Hello Munchkins!
The weather in delhi is so crappy at the moment, but there are a certain few things which can always make me smile! One such mood uplifter for me is lipstick, and if the lipstick fares well despite being from a drugstore brand and is actually cheap indeed takes my mood from drab to fab! And by the title you guys must have guessed what today's post is all about, so without much ado let us dig into the details about this littloe gorgeous baby!


Price and Quantity

INR 150 for 4.3 ml of product!

What does Elle 18 have to say?

With its special dual core lipstick format, Elle 18 Colour Boost gives you 6 hours of non-stop lip colour! Enjoy its creamy, soft texture enriched with extra moisturizing cocoa butter in 10 amazing shades. Pout non-stop with Colour Boost’s non-stop lip drama!



Packaging

Elle 18 has always packaged its lipsticks keeping in mind the quirky girl inside every woman, or as people see it, the packaging aims towards a teen-centric market! But nonetheless, the packaging is extremely cute, with a pink outer case which has cute girly imprints on it and a black bullet! One thing which I hate about elle 18 lipsticks packaging is the fact that they are damn cheap and not at all sturdy! I mean they open themselves and have the potential to ruin your makeup vanity by just being there! So this lipstick cannot be carried along for touch ups!

Shade

The shade Superlicious Red is indeed a very yummy pink based red which looks so pretty on my NC 40-42 skin! I mean it is a warm, pink toned red which leans more towards a deep pink than a bright red! So for all those afraid to adorn their bold red pout, Elle 18 Superlicious red is the way to ease into wearing red lipsticks!


Texture

Texture wise the colorboost lipsticks are creamy, I mean a bit too creamy for my taste, but if you love your lipsticks creamy and hydrating, then you are going to love it! But as per my personal choice the texture is too thick and creamy, and with the balmy centre in each bullet, the texture becomes all the more creamy! I personally like to wear it patted down with a thin layer of powder just to mattify it a bit and also to make it stay put for longer.


Pigmentation and Coverage

For a lipstick that retails for a meagre 150 bucks, the pigmentation is bomb! I eman just two swipes and you have the full blown colour on the lips which can be undoubtedly built up as well as toned down according to preference. The lipstick is not at all sheer and covers all lip imperfections pretty well!


Pros


  1. Extremely cheap
  2. Cute Pink packaging
  3. Super Gorgeous shade
  4. Hydrating
  5. Goes on super smooth
  6. Does not settle into lip lines
  7. Fades evenly and leaves a slight tint behind after 3-4 hours
  8. Colour can be built up or toned down
  9. Bang on pigmentation and coverage

Cons


  1. Packaging is not at all sturdy or reliable
  2. Cannot be carried around for touch ups
  3. Extremely creamy, may even melt in heat
  4. Does not stay any longer than 3-4 hours

Final Verdict

For 150 bucks, you cannot go wrong with a pink based red lipstick which can be mattified and of which the colour pigmentation can be adjusted as per your choices!

Overall Rating

4/5

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In NC42

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
