Elle18 Color Pops Matte Review!

Hey Everyone

I am going to review these Elle18 lipsticks that launched a while ago today. Sorry I took so long to review them. I wanted to try them fully before coming up with a review on them. I am so so impressed by these lipsticks. They are so affordable and have so many shades that you can pick from. There are quite a lot of fall appropriate shades as well. I will show the colours Cherry Wine, Deep Pink and Choco Bite today. Read on to know what I think of these 🙂

Price- 100/- INR each

Availability- On Amazon and in your local beauty stores

Elle 18 has always been an affordable Indian brand and I am glad they don’t keep raising prices with everything they launch. These are great for 100 rupees but I wish they had a complete ingredient list printed on them. The packaging is nice and sturdy. The cap closes tightly. Unlike the other Elle 18 lipsticks these dont have a creamy center.

The colour Cherry Wine is a deep purple maroon shade, Choco Bite is a dark brown and Deep Pink is a nice bright pink. I used Deep Pink in my first Youtube video which I will link below. Please watch and subscribe to my channel is you haven’t already 🙂

These Color Pops Matte lipsticks are so pigmented. They glide on smoothly and don’t tug on the lips at all. The feel a little bit waxy but it’s not too much and doesn’t really bother me much. The fragrance is like a light vanilla. They don’t bleed out of the lip lines although it does get into them a teeny tiny bit. The finish is not completely matte. I would call it more like a satin finish as it does have a little bit of shine. I use about 2-3 coats to get a complete even coverage.

The lipstick is not transfer proof and it does get onto the cups and plates etc. It does not dry out my lips at all. I don’t need to use a lip balm underneath these as it does feel quite moisturizing. The staying power is amazing. It lasts for about 5-6 hours with some fading around the center of the lips. After that it starts looking patchy if not reapplied.


Honestly, at this price I don’t really have anything to complain with these lipsticks. I loved all the shades Elle18 came out with and I highly recommend these Color Pops Matte ones to anyone on a budget and looking for a nice variety of shades in their stash.
