My experience with Elle 18 Lipstick 26 Hot Pink:

Packaging: Elle 18 lipsticks and their packaging- the usual black printed lipstick holders. It is difficult to locate the desired shade in a stash of Elle 18 lipsticks unless and until they are stored upside down πŸ˜€

Shade: The shade 26- Hot Pink is a bright fuchsia pink. It is so bright and bubbly that instantly adds so much fun to the whole look. Somehow I do not find this a distracting shade which means it can be worn lightly as an office wear too. This will suit all from warm to cool tones, from pinkish complexion to yellow ones, everyone.

Texture and Pigmentation: Elle 18 lipsticks are mostly creamy or waxy and this belongs to the former group. Due to its creaminess this might melt in summers otherwise itÒ€ℒs a pure delight to wear. In fact itÒ€ℒs very moisturizing and glides very smoothly onto lips. This particular shade is much pigmented and needs only a few swipes to build color. It does not leave any kind of tint onto lips which can sound disappointing to some.

Staying Power: Just like any other creamy lipsticks, this too has an average staying power of 2-3 hours and it vanishes with full meals too. However if worn on a base lip color, it stays much longer. It transfers somewhat to almost everything so one needs to be careful with that.

Apart from being an amazing lip shade, this shade does not feel heavy on lips and perfectly hides lip pigmentation. And before I conclude, I want to thank Elle 18 for printing the manufacturing date on the cap of the lipstick as it is pretty difficult to remember which shade was purchased when πŸ˜›
