ELLE 18 COLOR POPS LIPSTICK IN BERRY ICE

Hi all,

Hope everyone is doing  good. My review today is a lipstick from Elle 18 called BERRY ICE - no 23. I have had this lipstick for a  long time. Let's see how good it is....


Ingredients: Cocoa butter.. apart from that nothing mentioned





Price : Rs. 100 for 4.3ml/g



The lipstick in a normal black plastic packaging which is cheap but the animated girl makes it attractive to look at. But I wish they had more characters on the tubes.The cap does not click lock, hence over time it may get loose. Thankfully  I have not had any issues with the cap though.


This lipstick reminds me of my teenage days where I was so mesmerized by baby pink lipsticks although they still make me happy even today. The shade of this lipstick is the one which most girls would start their make up journey with in my opinion during our times. Yes I am an 80's kid ;) During my teens we did not have that many brands and Elle 18 was every teenage girls dream. The lipstick is  a blue based pink with loads of silver shimmer to it and there is a lip balm in the centre of the lipstick tube which makes the lipstick glide smoothly on the lips. It does have that lovely bubble gum smell which I love but some people don't like it. The lipstick goes on smooth on the lips but the shimmer may annoy many. Those with chapped lips, this is a big no no unless you properly moisturize and exfoliate your lips. I love this shade so much but the shimmer puts me off. Wish there was no shimmer really!!The lasting power is average and since it has loads of shimmer that is what will stay on the lips eventually and even go outside the lips  even after the lipstick fades which is really annoying. It does not stain the lips.These lipsticks have a tendency to melt in hot weather, thankfully I never had an issue with any of the shades I own.


The Good:
Affordable.
Available everywhere, even online.
Great shade.
Lovely smell.
Moisturizing.

The not so Good
Loads of shimmer.
Complete ingredient list missing.
Packaging could have been better.
Lasting power is not that great like most of the other shades.
Bullet is prone to melting and breakage in hot weather.


Rating: 3.5/5

Overall this is a nice baby pink color and will be liked by  those who may be ok with shimmer. Hence I would only say get it if you like the shimmer. 


I hope my review was helpful to you. Please feel free to leave a comment.


Thank you for your time.

Regards,
Natasha
