In Detail Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick Wow Pink 51 Review, Price, Swatches
It comes in a black coloured opaque packaging with rounded upper end which is the cap. Bottom of the lipstick has the sticker with the information about the shade. There is a sticker on the cap which mentions the price and product codes. However, what I was really sad about was the lack of ingredient list on the packaging.
Texture and Formula
The texture of the lipstick if really creamy due to the presence of cocoa butter in it. It also has a core stick which kind of looks like a solidified vaseline stick. The moisturising formula I guess can be attributed to the vaseline-like core of the lipstick. The lipstick does not tend to melt very easily, so I guess it is safe to keep it in the hand bag.
Shade Wow Pink 51 and pigmentation
This is a lovely bright neon pink shade. I would name it a beautiful Barbie pink shade. It is a fun shade to play with specially in this season when we want to wear more pinks, pastels, brights and neons. This also has some sparse silver shimmers which are hard to really notice. The pigmentation I would say is okay for the price. It is not intense, but delivers enough colour on the lips to make you feel its presence evenly. One can go for multiple swipes to intensify the pigment however, to many layers might make it feel a bit cakey on the lips.
This lipstick has an average staying power between 1.5 to 2 hours, which is very short. It does transfer a bit so if you are going to have a meal/coffee, this might wear out earlier than that. While fading, it does not leave any patchiness behind which is amazing. With a makeup remover, this comes off completely.
The Elle 18 Color Pops lipsticks have some really fun shades specially meant for college girls or when you want to wear some bright summery shades. These are very economically priced. The medium colour pay off, moderate pigmentation and moisturising formula make it a good choice for college teens. Although I am not particularly a fan of the way it smells (pretty much soap like), I don’t really mind it since the smell wears off in less than an hour. So if you want to play with budget friendly lip colours, these are some very good option available in the market.

1. If you are new to lipsticks, you can begin with these economical options.
2. To make a lipstick last longer, scrub your lips before applying lipstick. This also makes them look very even on the lips.
3. Avoid touching the lipstick bullet with bare hands. It leads to unhygienic conditions and also increases the chances of breaking the lipstick.
