On one of my recent hauls I came across these Elle18 Color Bomb Lipsticks that had been released a while back. They were pretty inexpensive at 100 bucks and there was a plethora of shades to choose from. Being a college student, I don’t really get to wear lipsticks that often which means I just stick to the tried and tested glosses, so giving these a try seemed like a good idea. While trying to select which ones to buy, I swatched some on my hand and clicked pics so that I could share it with you guys.
This post isn’t much of a review since Ana has already reviewed them earlier. I love the fact that these are smooth and easy to apply, not too drying, affordable and come in a variety of shades. I just wish they were more pigmented and stayed on a little longer. All in all, I am pretty happy with my purchase, since it just cost me Rs. 100 each. This way I can experiment with various colors before splurging on the High-end brands.
The shades I bought are Roasty Red and Baked Peach. As you can see these colors look very warm and pretty in the hand-swatch, but once applied on lips look pinker than expected. Even Roasty Red doesn’t look red at all. That is because these are not very pigmented when applied and give sheer coverage. Since my lips have very strong pink undertones and these lipsticks are not pigmented at all, the pink/mauve of my lips tends to dominate. So, these lipsticks will surely look different on different lips.
