Elle 18 Colorburst Lipstick in Cranberry review and swatches

Elle 18 Colorburst Lipstick in Cranberry
Hello Everyone,
We all are aware about the Elle 18 lipsticks and have used atleast one of them.
Long ago, I had the Elle 18 Dewlipz , when I had started using lipsticks, it was dusty pink in packaging and budget friendly too. 

Elle18

After sometime, their color pop range was launched and by that time I was also happily adapted with some other brands, then one day I thought of giving this new range a try and get two for myself in Cranberry and Rosy blush.
And today I decided of reviewing Cranberry that I bought 2 months ago.
Price-  100 INR
Quantity- 4.3 gms
What the company claims- A blast of color with punch of Cocoa. The intense moisturizing core in the center protects and cares for your lips.

Packaging- Packaging is black plastic one with a picture. Shorter than the regular lipsticks’ packaging.
My experience-  My first impression about the packaging was that it is cute but I preferred the older one over this. Elle 18 colorbursts are available in 25 shades.


Elle18
It has cocoa creme in the centre to give that extra moisture to the lips. Texture is nice and it is moisturizing too but upto some extent.
Cranberry is  the shade 06, a brownish coppery metallic color which is very sheer when you apply a single layer and the color can be build by more swiping. I love this color as it is a bit of different than the colors I usually go for.

And here is how it looks on me.


Elle18
It has a low staying power as it doesnot survive a single meal and doesnot leave a stain which can be good for some of us while some may want some tint even if the lip color rubs off.

Lets summarize the pros and cons of this lipstick.
Pros 
It is easily available.
Packaging is sturdy enough those looks wise I preferred the older one. 
It is very cheap and pocket friendly.
It has a mild fragrance, not overpowering. 
Pigmentation is average and color can be built by swiping it more.
It doesnot bleed or leaves a stain when you wipe it. 
Gives a lovely color coppery brown shimmery color which will suit most of the   complexions. 

Cons 
Except for the cocoa crème nothing is mentioned on the packaging.
It is highly transferrable. 
Poor staying power.
It wont survive a single meal, so, touch ups are going to be more frequent.
Rating- 3.5 out of 5
My take- Considering its price we can not expect it score on every aspect concerned, but as it comes cheap, pocket friendly and does a good job with so many colors to choose from  makes it a good buy.
Pigmentation of these lipsticks may vary from shade to shade and color may be a bit different and is also influenced by the actual color of the lips as well.
