*Review by Arshi S. on behalf of The Indian Beauty Blog
This is my very first review on The Indian Beauty Blog and I want to thank Ritu for giving me this opportunity.
Today I will be reviewing the Elle-18 Color Pop Eyeliner- Green from Elle 18’s newly launched range of products. In addition to the classic black eyeliner, three more colors in the same range have been launched – blue, brown and grey.
Shelf Life: 24 months
Ingredients: Not mentioned.
My Experience with Elle-18 Color Pop Eyeliner- Green: The Elle 18 eyeliner comes in a small round glass pot with the brush affixed inside the handles. The standard Elle 18 ‘neon pink- haired girl’ is printed on the handle of the bottle. The manufacturing date is also printed on the handle itself. The eyeliner is very dark green in color with loads of shimmers. The shimmers are not gritty and chunky but are very fine. The color appears more grayish in the bottle but turns out to a dark teal color on the eyelids, great for night outs.
The consistency of the eyeliner is perfect for a liquid liner. But the formula is not much pigmented. You need to apply at least two coats to get the desired intensity of color. Also, it starts crumbling if you go for the third coat or apply a very thick line. The brush is also pretty thin so you can draw neat and precise lines.
The staying power of the eyeliner is average; it stays on my oily eyelids for 3-4 hours after which it starts flaking. It does not budge but it is not waterproof. If you have a habit of frequently rubbing your eyes then this eyeliner is certainly not for you since it disappears on rubbing.
I have not tried the eyeliner on my lower lash line so I cannot comment if it is safe for it or not.
Pros of Elle 18 color pop Eyeliner- Green:
- Good quantity for the price.
- Leakage proof packaging.
- Pretty shade.
- Decent staying power.
Cons of Elle 18 Color Pop Eyeliner – Green:
- Ingredient list missing.
- May not be suitable for the lower lash line.
- Shimmers present are overpowering.
Verdict: If you love shimmers on your eyes then this product is definitely a great buy at such a low price.
Till next time!
