As a college student with budgeted pocket money, buying expensive makeup products is nothing less than a herculean task, so I am always in the look of products that do not burn a hole in my pocket and suit my purpose completely. Lipsticks play a very important role in brightening up a look and your day in just a moment! In my search of pocket-friendly lipsticks, I discovered the Elle 18 collection of matte lipsticks! They have 24 shades and I am reviewing the Elle 18 Color Pop Matte Lip Color Super Pink.

My Experience with Elle 18 Color Pop Matte Lip Color Super Pink
Packaging- The Elle 18 Color Pop Matte Lip Color – Super Pink comes in a very classic black plastic packaging with a girl printed on it. The plastic cover is not that sturdy but does the job quite well and closes with a click. The lipstick comes with a retractable bullet. There is a sticker at the bottom, which gives all the necessary details regarding the product. The product is not color-coded so it becomes a little tricky to pick the shade you are looking for, especially when in a hurry.
Shade- There is a little contradiction in the name of the shade and the actual color it delivers. The shade is Super Pink but after application, it looks a lot more like any red shade and nothing close to pink. To be precise the color has marron shade with a slight tint of pink.
Texture & Finish- The texture of the lipstick is very smooth and creamy but gives the perfect matte finish after 20-30 minutes of application. It does not crease when applied to the lips and does not highlight the lines on the lips.
Fragrance- The Elle 18 Color Pop Matte Lip Color – Super Pink is a fragrance-free product.
Coverage and Staying Power – The lipstick gives the best coverage as compared to the price it has been bought for and has a good staying power for up to 4 hours. The color requires touch ups after a meal (especially if eating oily foods)
Experience- My experience with Elle 18 Color Pop Matte Lip Color has been amazing. I absolutely love the shade and the texture. As the color is very deep and bold, it not only raises your confidence to a completely new level but also instantly transforms your look! As college students, this product is not only pocket-friendly but delivers the best result with just one stroke of its application.
