So as of now just hoping to get those power cuts on track very soon. Off to Megha now
Elle 18 Color Burst Lipstick in Shade Prune Splash 07:
A blast of color with the punch of cocoa. Available in 25 trendy shades, the intense moisturizing core protects your lips.
The packaging of the lipstick is chic and funky looking. Elle 18 lipstick comes in a black casing with its logo on the cap. The shade name and number is mentioned at the bottom of the casing. It really becomes difficult to identify the shade in case you hoard many. The packaging of the lipstick is sturdy (though the quality of the packaging is not as good as previous pink purple packaging) and travel friendly. You can easily get Elle 18 lipsticks at any local store or on online shopping sites.
The texture of the lipstick is soft and moisturizing. It glides smoothly on my lips. It has cocoa butter in the centre to moisturize lips well. It has fine and subtle golden shimmers which are not OTT and looks quite pretty on lips. Even if I apply 2-3 layers of this, it never feels heavy on my lips. It is quite moisturizing and you don’t need to apply lip balm underneath unless you have extremely dry lips. Though the lipstick is creamy, it doesn’t bleed at all. The pigmentation is average. It applies sheer in one swipe. You need to swipe it 2-3 times to get the actual color. You can easily build up the color if you want a more intense and bold look. It stays put on my lips for 3-4 hours with food and drinks in between and then starts fading evenly leaving a nice tint behind. It gives a nice shiny finish to my lips and I don’t feel the need to use a lip gloss. It has a faint smell of bubblegum which fades away as soon you apply it on your lips. It doesn’t settle into fine lines of the lips.

Elle 18 lipstick shade ‘Prune Splash’ is a warm and soft brown shade with fine and subtle shimmers. It is a soft and moisturizing lipstick and you won’t need to apply lip balm underneath unless you have very dry lips. The pigmentation is average. It gives a sheer color if swiped once but it gives a decent color pay off if swiped 2-3 times on lips. It stays put on my lips for a good 3-4 hours after which it starts fading evenly. I would definitely recommend it to everyone. Great for price too!!!
