Elle 18 Color Pops - Roasty Red 15

 Hello Girlies, J

Hope everyone is doing fine. I was actually surprised with the Lip color Shades which Lakme and Elle18 have recently launched. They have actually come in action past few months. There was a time when Lakme was commonly available, whenever I used to go for shopping, I used to just get Lakme ONLY ever since new brands have taken over Indian market they have lost their attention. Good they are back in action. Even I have not got much of Lakme but recently I got two Elle18 Lippies out of which I am gonna review one today.

I had always been using Neutrals/Pinks/Corals on my lips but never tried such a bright color. I bought this because Elle18 products are easily available + they are good quality & of course affordable as well.

My Shade today is Elle18 Color Pops - Roasty Red 15

 What Elle18 Claims:

Elle18 is a color cosmetics range launched in 1998. Elle18 Color Bombs is an exciting and funky range of color cosmetics and has been designed for young trendy girls. The range designed in cool shapes has explosively vibrant colors for lips, nails and eyes. The products are packed with the goodness of Cocoa butter, Jojoba Oil, Rose Water and Almonds.

Elle18 Color Pops - Roasty Red 15 Details

A blast of color with the punch of cocoa. The intense moisturizing core in the center protects and cares for your lips.

My Opinion:

The formula of Elle18 Color Pops - Roasty Red is very creamy and moisturizing because of the balm built-in inside the stick. The color is Red with orange undertone. It has no shine but due to the balm it appears a glossy finish. It has a sweet smell, which really doesn't bother me since it goes off in some time. Normally, I don’t like wearing bright or dark lip shades, I like to keep myself a bit on a natural side. The packaging reminds me of Mac Lippies.

It glides smoothly on the lips and doesn't settle between the cracks, but it leaves a stain behind.
The Lasting power is just of couple of hours but good for a product so cheap and branded too, I am sort of okay with the texture and the whole thing, not actually in my favorites.

I Remember, I used to buy these when I was in college, at that time the packaging was something in Pink but the formula used was almost the same. This really is best option for college goers because it’s quite affordable and it has a variety of shades.

Price: Got it from India for Rs 100 /-

Quantity: 4.3 ML

For proper defining of the lips I have used a lip liner from Revlon color stay in the shade Red.

 The above pics are looking comparatively bright that is why I have provided below my close-up look for proper understanding of the shade

  • Reasonably priced
  • Available in huge range of shades.
  • Travel Friendly, Light weight.
  • Staying power is good

  • Ingredients are not mentioned on the product L
  • Color Shade is not visible from the Outer packing

My Final Verdict:
I am not that fond of these Lippies but would definitely try colors before buying something in high end.

Look Beautiful Always


  1. pretty shade n pretty lip swatches..
    very nice review..

  2. I was quite surprised to find myself liking these! I had bought one in an emergency, there was nothing else available, and now I own three. Love the packaging, kind of like Dainty Doll products, don't you think? And they stay on surprisingly well. Why do they get so much bad press?

    1. Packaging and Staying Power is OKAY..I frankly loved the shade, but am unsure i would be wearing such bright shades regularly.
