Elle 18 Color Bomb Lipstick

Yes, another product from Elle 18. Elle 18 has been one of my loyal friends since I was in school. My sister was very fond of it. Alas, they have reduced the side of their nail polish bottle. I still remember how I was fond of their Jellips. I regret that those are no longer available. Snyway, lets see what I think of the new launched of the lipsticks
This is the whole thing.
price: 100 INR
Quantity: 4 ml
Ingredients: Not listed
 The shade that I have is Raspberry Ripple, which is not berry colored, but a kind of shimmery maroonish brown as far as I see.
1) The tube looks chic and is quite good. The cap does not become loose. Some have complaints regarding this, but as for me, I am just fine with it. I am fond of the girl on the tube. :P
2) Quite a large election of colors to choose from. I already have another one although I did not like its shade. But let me tell you, many of the shades have been relaunched
3) The lipsticks are quite pigmented and does a decent job for the price we ares shelling out.
4) Its not very drying,  not moisturizing though. I thought the core would be moisturizing, but it did not exactly turn out to be so.
5) It would be an understatement to say that its affordable.
6) No strong smell and the light odor vanishes withing a few minutes. So good for sensitive olfactory people.

1) Not moisturizing.
2) doesn't smell too good. Just lightly fragranced, cocoa butter smell.
3) I would have preferred more selection in peaches and corals.
4) None of the stores have the complete selection.
5) Ingredients not listed.

Finak Verdict:I have no other dislikes because for the price we pay, its a good lipstick

Shall I repurchase? I am currently on a strict no make up buiyng diet. if I am breaking that, I would. :P
Do I recommend? yes!!!Its great value for money.

Have you used this? How do you like this?

The product was sent to me by the brand/Pr for consideration. But that has not affected my review.

    @Debaleena you are soo right!!!! And in fact I think it would take years to finish my around 100 Lip products. So what do I do if a new shade launches? :(
    @Anju: The pocket pinch is not too great. So let me know what you think Anju. And FYI there are some pinks too. I know how you love pinks
