Elle 18 Juicy Lip Balm in Juicy Berry - Review, Swatch & LOTD

You all might have known by now that our good old elle 18 is revamping their entire collection by launching foundations, colored liquid liners etc and by adding new shades to their existing line. I had religiously used elle 18 black liquid liners when I was in high school and am excited to try their new range.

Today I will be reviewing their Lip balm. It is named as Juicy Lip Balm and the shade which I am going to review is Juicy Berry.

Color: Reddish Peach color.

Price: Rs. 110/- for 9 ml.

Packing: It is packed in a tiny transparent tube with a black cap. The packing is apt for travel and the packing is very much like the elle 18 lip smoothies.

Pigmentation: I loved the color when I saw it in the pack. It is a Beautiful peach color with strong red tones to it. On my lips, it comes more as a healthy tint which looks very natural and pretty like they claim, a hint of color. :)

Texture: The texture of the product is akin to a lip gloss. Creamy to liquid consistency. Though it feels little heavy, it does not feel sticky if we use a little quantity. However, if layered, it gets sticky and heavy.

The best part about the texture is, when I squeeze the tube to get the product out, it comes uniformly i.e., in some lip glosses or liquid lip balms, the color gets separated from the base and when we squeeze the product out only the base comes out followed by the color. This does not happen with this product and I am pretty impressed.

Fragrance: It has a mild fruity fragrance.

Staying Power: The sheen/color stays for about 1.5 hours on my lips but my lips stay moisturised for another 2 hours. My lips do not feel dry or parched when the product wears off completely.

Maniac’s Rating: 3.5/5
These are very good for college goers who would like to experiment without wasting their entire allowance. This particular shade will be apt for those girls who are just starting out on lip products as it is pretty sheer yet imparts a healthy look to the lips.
As for me, I feel that these are a little too similar to the old Elle 18 lip smoothies. Old wine in New Bottle?

Hope you girls liked my review.
