All of us are aware of the beauty brand Elle 18 and the beautiful lipstick shades they have. I own two of them – one is Baked Peach which I have already reviewed and the other one is Apple Springs. This particular shade was gifted to me sometime back by one of my friend. She feels that I should try out some bright colors as well because I am more into neutrals. She said that, she picked this shade exclusively for me. I have used this lipstick for months now and so I thought of reviewing it for you all. Read on to know more about the product.

My Experience With Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick Apple Springs:

Packaging: The lipstick comes in a bullet shaped black case with the twist up function. The packaging is very light weight and easy to carry around. In fact the packaging is very adorable. The name of the shade is written at the bottom.
Shade: Apple Springs shade is a muted maroon with brown undertones. It has fine shimmers which are hardly visible though. This color would suit medium to dusky skin tones.
Texture: The lipstick is extremely moisturizing due to the presence of cocoa butter and glides on the lips effectively. It also keeps the lip moisturized for a long time. But the lipstick doesn't work on chapped lips.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is the best part of this lipstick. With one swipe, you shall get the desired color and double swipe gives an opaque look. The color effectively hides any pigmentation on the lips. It is advisable to use a lip liner underneath as the lipstick bleeds a lot. It can also be worn by blotting it.
Staying Power: If you use this lipstick along with a lip liner, it stays for about 5 hours and then fades off leaving a reddish tint on the lips. It has the ability to survive heavy meals as well.
The color goes best with soft eye makeup as this shade draws too much attention to the lips.

Pros Of Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick Apple Springs:
  • Travel friendly and adorable packaging.
  • A nice maroon color with brown undertones.
  • Creamy texture.
  • Keeps the lips moisturized for long.
  • Great color payoff.
  • Stays for about 5 hours on my lips with lip liner underneath.

Cons Of Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick Apple Springs:
  • I feel the color is too loud for fair toned people.
  • Doesn't work on chapped lips.
  • It has the tendency to bleed if not worn with lip liner.

Final Note:

Maroon doesn't suit me much for unknown reasons. But the people with dusky skin tones would love this color. Moreover, the price is dirt cheap. I am eyeing on other soft shades from their collection.
