Elle 18 Color Pops Matte Lipstick : Code Red, Rust Rage, Deep Pink Review, swatch
Hello Cupcakes 🙂
Trends last month: Less active, less post, Less comments on others blog
Highly active while buying lipsticks 😛
Elle 18 Color Pops Matte Lipstick hit Indian market with gorgeous 20 shades. I have picked up 3 and tested them enough, So let’s get into the review.
Price: 100 INR for 4.3g
Product Description: High color pay off, Pigmented, Matte lipstick
My Experience with Elle 18 Color Pops Matte Lipsticks:
Packaging: Black tube with girls face printed on it, the cap has a flat top. Pretty sight!! I haven’t seen the caps travelling in the bag, The Tube cap shuts with click, but yet does not feel that sturdy. For the price they come in the packaging is good.
Texture: The texture is more on the creamy side; they glide smoothly on the lips. Though advertised as Matte, since the texture is creamy, the finish is more of a creamy matte. I have blotted it and applied a powder on top of it, to turn them into matte, and they do turn matte. So not a problem there.
Performance: Once applied they don’t transfer like crazy, but they do transfer a little. So with Munch and sip the shade goes little by little. I would say overall 3-5 hours. The Rust Rage is fastest to fade and rest two kind of stays intact for long hours. These can’t survive meal but the shades leave a tint behind. I haven’t seen these bleeding, settling into fine lines or getting patchy. Since these are creamy mattes they are very comfortable on the lips too.
Deep Pink : Raspberry Pink, Pigmented to the core, one swipe is enough, leaves a Pink tint behind.
Rust rage: It a Mix of Orange, Rust and Maroon. On my skin it looks exactly like a Rust shade, whereas on my fair skin toned friend, it looks almost maroonish. This needs about 2 swipes to look great, leaves a maroon tint behind.
Code red: Deep Red. Looks gorgeous on Deeper skin tones. This is pigmented a lot too, leaves a Red tint behind.
Affordable, Fantastic Shades, Good pigmentation, Creamy matte hence comfortable on lips, stays for 3-5 hours.
Not a perfect powder matte finish, Transfers a little, OOS most of the time.
This range gets A+ from me. The Price, the Performance, the shades are all fantastic. I am trying to get more of these and I will be getting more of these once they
are in stock in local shops. Do I recommend? Hell Yeah!!! One can’t miss these.
Have you tried these? Do you own any lipstick from Elle 18?

After reading your review, i guess I need a decent lipstick now ???. Might try Rust rage ???
I am sure you will like Rust rage. Yes Yes you need lipstick 😀
Trying hard to find these lipsticks in my local store. Code red looks nice.
These are hard to find. I am having tough time finding the Pinks in this. Very pretty shade 🙂
I’m eyeing on these for quite sometime time now. But I wish they were widely available. They sound too good for 100 bucks.
You are right Safi. Finding them is a task 🙁
Yeah quality is awesome
One think I really like about Elle 18 lipsticks are the affordable price. All these shades are beautiful?
True and amazing quality too 🙂
Elle lipsticks and also also other products from the brand are very much affordable, I used to own couple of lipsticks from them, will check out this range
Yeah and the QUALITY is getting better with each launch too. These dont feel like a 100 buck lipstick. The shades too are unique. Do get your hands on these, pretty pinks they have
I’ve never tried Elle 18 products. I always thought considering the price they might not be that great! But il give these a go since you recommend these! Also i am a sucker for matte lipsticks!
Some of the eye products I have tried and lipsicks in the past havenot fared well. But the latest ones are better in quality and dont even feel like a 100 buck lippies.
Do try these 🙂
Amazing swatches dear Swathi..?..I am in love with Code Red
Thanks Soma 🙂 Its a lovely shade
Such a nice pigmentation. shades are too pretty. Thanks fro the review.
Does it cover pigmented lips?
Yes, 2-3 swipes will be needed but yeah
Elle 18 is really stepping it’s game with lipsticks. For the price you pay these look amazing.
Rightly said. Yeah, I want some more 😛
Like all the three shades you picked 🙂
That trends last month line completely rhymed! 😀 I went to grab these but then most of their shades were quite dark but the colours truly were like so fascinating 🙂

I remember, i had few products of this brand during my college time! Love your review hun!
I have to try this range out. Some freaky sinful shades out there. Love it.
Oh yeah and some bright orange and Corals too, something which you like 🙂
Even I went ahead and got some of these, for a price tag of 100 they are super duper affordable and can be used everyday 🙂
I could barely find 3 shades and rest were oos…code red is in my list and I liked it so much that I almost begged shopkeeper to sell tester piece to me ;D you are right rust rage looked maroonish on my skin while code red looks a little rusty red on me 🙂

I am having tough time finding the Pinks in this.
Yeah, they look different on different skintone..pretty though =))

I’d pick all the 20 shades if these were available 🙁 I can spot them nowhere!
