A review on Elite Lip Glosses

Among many recent entrants to drugstore based cosmetic brands, is Elite with its range of Make up products. I came across this brand at my local Superdrugs store and decided to give it a try by purchasing two lip glosses. I tested them on my lips for three days [check out my pics by the way] and here's what I feel about it:-

Left to Right: Elite repulp lipgloss; Elite Shine Up Gloss



Elite repulp lipgloss in the shade: 12 Tempting Plum


Elite Shine Up Gloss in the shade: 15 Rouge

1.The Good Side to it:- To start with I found the packaging to be very stunning and elegant in appearance and it feels great to have it in your bag and occassionaly flaunt it in Public. The glosses are available in a variety of beautiful dazzling shades. The Elite repulp lipgloss comes with a brush tip so there is no need for a separate lip brush for applying color to your lips. A bonus was that the Elite lip glosses leave a beautiful shine and makes your lips look fuller in appearance.


2.The Bad Side to it:- The glosses doesnt have long staying power, smears/bleeds when worn on top of a lip primer! The lighter shades dont have much pigmentation in them which means you need to apply atleast 2 coats for them to show up and also conceal the real colour of your lips! Another thing which I noticed about the Elite lip glosses was, the colors begin to crack up on the lips within 10 minutes and thereby accentuating the fine line on the lips and this really disappointed me! Priced at around £6.85 per bottle I personally feel its priced on the higher side for a drug store brand!I on my part bought it via a 'BOGOF' offer at Superdrugs and it was a kind of relief to me :)

The Verdict:- Will I buy it again? Although I really like the shades, I doubt buying it as I feel its just an ordinary lip gloss with great looking packaging and its a gloss that doesnt stay long on your lips and finally its priced on the higher side!

Have any of you tried any Elite Products or planning to? If yes please feel free to share your opinion with me!

    @Divija@: awwee thank you, darling! I am glad you found the review helpful xoxo

    @Shifa: I agree, the darker shades are well pigmented, though I'm not very pleased with the pigmentation of the lighter shades, however, it may look good if applied over a lipstick xoxo

    @witoxicity@ I haven't heard of them either until I discovered this brand in Superdrugs a week back xoxo
