Price - 100 INR

Weight - 4.3gm

Shelf life - 24 months (2 years) from the date of manufacture

Packaging - The standard black plastic cover is not too attractive. Also, the round shape makes it tough for girls to carry it in the purse.

Smell - The lipstick does not have a very strong cosmetic scent which irritates some of us.

Color - This one is a bright popping pink, but don't confuse it to be a coral or rani pink one. The colour looks great on fair skin, but I don't think that it will suit the darker skin tones.

Experience - My experience with PROM PINK from Elle 18 Color Pops Matte has been a positive one. It is not only a bright colour, but also has a good staying power. The colour remain almost intact even after I had tea and snacks. However, with reapplication, the colour gets patchy and uneven.

Pros -

  • 1. not very expensive
  • 2. bright colour for happy and sad days both
  • 3. good staying power
  • 4. long shelf life
  • 5. no strong smell


Cons -

  • 1. reapplication makes it patchy and uneven
  • 2. ordinary packaging


Verdict - 3.8/5

Will I repurchase? Probably not, because this is a pretty common colour, and I already have this shade from 2 other brands, which are more matte than this one. But it's not a loss for a first buy, and I don't regret having this lipstick on my shelf.
