This review will be short and sweet!
Here’s a pretty pink lip gloss. Elle 18 Juicy Lip Balm in Juicy Berry. It’s a lovely warm pink, very much coral in the tube. It’s a very sheer lip gloss. On the lips, the colour changes a bit depending on your pigmentation. This will also work well as a layering gloss over pink and nude lipsticks.
It is very lightweight and thus feels comfortable on the lips and not sticky. The consistency is thin and very similar to the Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Lip Gloss. That’s one thing I do like about this and also the strong vanilla scent.
With a sheer coat this barely lasts for 1-2 hours and at the end of it there colour is gone and you just have a film on your lips. With more coats it can manage 2-3 hours of wear but the colour fades quite a lot. With more coats, it will settle into lines and gather near the edges a bit. It stays very glossy when you apply it but the colour fades till you have a slightly glossy film left behind.
The packaging is nothing fancy, it’s a standard plastic lip gloss tube. You get 9ml of product fro Rs. 110.
Overall, it’s an average lip gloss, the plus point being the consistency but the downer being the staying power. I can’t find this online but I’ve linked to places that sell Elle 18.
If you’re on a budget and what to try a pretty lip gloss and don’t mind reapplying, go for it. But it would make more sense to add a couple more hundred and go for the Maybelline one instead, it has better staying power.
