When Lakme launched their range of lip crayons then I instantly grabbed all of them. But when Elle- 18 launched their range of lip crayons then it too me time to order for me. Why? Because my boy is a toddler now & hates going market. And getting Elle-18 lipstick/crayon shade of your choice online is next to impossible. Finally I got time and bought all shades from the sadar bazaar (In gurgaon). But few of them destroyed by Aarav. Not his fault, he must have thought that they are his crayons. So I will be showing you swatches of only few. These crayons are super affordable & available at the rate of Rs 180.
Price: 110 Rs
Qt: 2.2 gm
Direction for use:
* Worked from the center towards the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth.
* Glide the product across the entire bottom lip.
* This step is optional but you could use a tissue to blot out the extra product.
Packaging: The packaging is almost similar to the Lakme crayons. These crayons exactly look like crayons we all have used in our school days but with a cap. With Lakme crayon you get a dual sided sharpener but not in case of Ell-18. But it is pretty ok because the Lakme crayon is tagged at price of 180 Rs so basically there is difference of 70 Rs. You can buy a sharpner and easily sharpen your crayon whenever the tip gets blunt.

My opinion about the product:
These crayons have a nice creamy texture & glides easily over the lips and does not turn cakey. It is enriched with jojoba oil and olive oil helps in nourishing the lips and keeps it soft for a long time. These are available in 8 shades to choose from. I have all of them & happy that I purchased all the shades. Each shade gives a bold and fuller look in one swipe. It has Shea butter and cocoa butter makes it soft and smooth. The matte look may lasts long but won’t be able to survive heavy meals . It is affordable and you can get it easily.
I always say that Elle-18 lipsticks are always a fair deal because they are tagged at really affordable price. So these crayons are also good as pretty similar to lakme crayons. Amazing option for college going students o if you want to have multiple shades but don’t want to spend much, as these crayons are very light for the pocket 🙂
1. Affordable price.
2. Pretty color-coded packaging.
3. Glides smoothly.

4. Can’t survive heavy meal.
