Elle 18 ‘Color Bombs’ : Back with a Bang?

by mehak on November 16, 2010

in Elle 18

‘Elle18’ makes me so nostalgic. It reminds me of those  days when i obsessed over Elle 18 glitter nail polishes.  If you are a girl growing up in the nineties, Elle 18 was ‘the’ nailpolish to own. I had this one in a stunning purple colour and iv been trying to find a similar one ever since. I think it was called Lilac Bliss or something…i dunno..I remember i lost it in a basket ball match in school :S
Anyway  today when i read my mail and saw a press note on the launch of ‘Elle 18 color Bombs’, the little girl inside me gave a squeal!!!

Elle 18 claims –

“Elle 18 is back with a bang in an all-new avatar Color Bombs. This exciting and funky range of color cosmetics has been designed for young trendy girls. The range designed in cool shapes has explosively vibrant colors for lips, nails and eyes. The products are packed with the goodness of Cocoa butter, Jojoba Oil, Rose Water and Almonds.  These super cute ‘patakas’ are sure to pack your day with explosive excitement!”

These are the products available-
Funky nail colors in 48 explosive shades
Rs.45 only (1$)

A blast of color with the punch of cocoa.  Available in 25 trendy shades, the intense moisturizing core protects your lips
Rs. 100 only (2$)

Lip Gloss in delicious fruit flavours and pumped with cocoa butter.  In 6 delicious shades
Rs. 85 only (1.5$)

With a rich and lustrous black color the Kajal has almond oil
Rs. 65 only (1.25$)

Versatile eye crayons with awesomeness of almonds, in 5 flattering shades
Rs. 85 only (1.5$)

Jet black and water-resistant eyeliner juiced-up with rose water
Rs.65 only (1.25$)

I am definitely into the lip smoothie, the Eye Sparklers and the Nail pops from the Elle18 Color Bomb collection. With a line that is so affordable i might just try out everything. A lot of people would feel that the packaging might look childish but i thinkt the nailpaint bottle is kind of cool and i am loving the packaging !!! ! It reminds me of MAC Venemous Villains and i adore the packaging on that too (What can i say, gimme makeup and put some cartoons on it and yv got a happy girl).

What all are you going to try from the Elle 18 color bomb range? What has your experience with Elle 18 been like?

Hey , I am already a member of brandmile. I have reallized that Brandmile has less options and discounts. But I'd definitely buy something from them to see their shipping duration.

They're not available in Hyd? I am actually from kerala and I study in Hyderabad now. And i first found it in Kerala. Are they seriously not available in hyd?


Neeraja February 9, 2011 at 12:30 am

and to add, the lip smoothies are amazin! With a tinge of mint, it has an almost mysterious flavor to it and i love them! The color burst is awesome too!!!
