Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick, Cinnamon Bun : Review

I know it is a bit too late to review these Elle18 Color Pops, practically all the blogs have already put up everything you need to know, but I shall share a quick review anyway :) I had picked up 3 shades  when these came out and I am still tempted to get more... :D 

Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick Cinnamon Bun Review

Being so affordable and yet having a pretty ok quality, Elle18 gave us (especially we students) a great way to add lots of shades to our kitty and experiment. Now you wouldn't find testers for these lipsticks that easily, so most of the time you just have to go with your gut and risk it.

The packaging is black plastic with a girl cartoon print on the cap. You won't get a classy feel out of it, but it is quite snazzy. Cinnamon Bun is a peachy brown shade (which goes on like a peachy nude) and makes a great everyday wear shade. It is quite sheer (don't let the appearance in the tube mislead you), I wish it was more pigmented. It will suit fair to medium skin tones but I am not sure about darker tones. Also, it won't show up on pigmented lips. It is a day time colour that can easily be worn to college or office or when you are out doing random chores. 

You get a balm like texture due to that balmy center and the lipstick will last you around 2 hours or so. But then what can you expect at this price?! Oh and there is no mention of the ingredients. They should have!

Overall, this isn't one of my favourite shades from the collection. It is a pretty ok shade for day wear and it I find it handy for college. I wish it was more pigmented but for 100 bucks I think this is the pretty much the best you can get. 
Will swatch the other shades soon!

Price: 100INR for 4.3ml
