Eleanor Ultra shine lipstick Raspberry
One can never have too many lipsticks. Eleanor ultrs shine lipstick 01 Raspberry is under review today. I love the packaging of this brand. Its black its shiny and its very luxury feeling. Price: INR 595
Thr price point is mid range for drugstore , given that the products are made in Italy and not China I think the price point is fair. Their products have a long shelf life, this lipstick is good to use to three years from the date of manufacturing.
Coming back to the lipstick the color is a bright pink not quiet raspberry which is more coral and pink mix, its mostly a fuschia pink with high shine. I am not a particular fan of high shine formmula, but if you are someone who loves a glossy shiny lucious looking lips then you might enjoy this lipstick. Its very comfotable on the lips, gives high shine and almost looks like a gloss on the lips.But the pigmentation could be better, you need to layer it up for the full intensity of the color to show.
I love cream matte formulas the most, but this formula looks fabulous for summertime, with just lots of mascara and a hint of blush and luscious pink lips.
It doesnt stay for a long time on the lips and doesnt survive meals but it does leave a pretty stain on the lips which is very beautiful.
So overall I would give this a 3.5 star rating. Love everything but the pigmenation leaves a bit more to be desired.

I received the shade Coral as part of Glamrada Trial Squad.
Cost: INR 595
The packaging is sleek and sturdy. The shade Coral is very flattering to my wheatish skin tone. The lipstick has a lot of ingredients like lanolin oil and active ingredient like tocopheryl acetate which reduces flakiness of the lips. As you can see from the picture that I have attached that my lips look plump and moisturized. My lips are always dry and with this one I didn't need any prepping whatsoever and still had plump lips.
The brand says that this is a sheer lip gloss colour for plump, shiny and moist lips and it delivers 100% of what it claims.
Of course this does transfer if you have snacks/tea and reapplication is needed. This shade is pigmented enough to cover my pigmented lips and the color intensifies once it sets
Personally I am not a gloss person, but if you are on the look out for a lipstick which moisturises and gives plump lips, look no further than this one

I recieved two shades Guava and Plum of Eleanor Ultra Shine Lipsticks as a part of Glamrada Trial Squad . Eleanor is european beauty brand and that quite reflects in the packaging of the lipstick.I really loved the sturdy black lipstick case with golden rim in the middle . Base of the lipstick has a sticker which bears the name of the shade while the lipstick shell itself has name of the brand written in BOLD. Eleanor Ultra Shine Lipsticks has standard twist up mechanism and the lid shuts tight making the packaging safe to travel with.
Texture of eleanor lipsticks is creamy-satiny and they roll on lips smoothly without a drag . Plum is beautiful brown toned rose pink shade that will suit all skin tones while Guava is warm peach in color that will suit fair to medium skin complexions. Plum applies creamy , has moderate pigmentation and give complete opacity on my slightly pigmented lips in 2-3 swipes. However Guava applies relatively sheer and I need to build it up to get complete coverage.It also has tiny shimmer but not conspicuous enough for day wear.
Both the lipsticks feels moisturising on lips, stay comfortable & does not bleed or budge as such . Plum lasts for 6-7 hours whereas Guava lasts for 4-5 hours on my lips with minimal eating in between. With meals, I loose both of them completely .
My final thoughts - I am impressed with overall quality of Eleanor Ultra Shine Lipsticks . Plum and Guava are beautiful shades that somewhat falls in the neutral palette of colors. So they can be good picks for beauties who prefer neutral ,rose toned or peachy shades for everyday wear/office wear . They are affordable as you get 3.4g of the product for 595INR.

I received the ELEANOR Ultra Shine Lipstick in the shade L05 Raisin, as a part of the Glamrada’s Eleanor India trial squad.
ELEANOR Ultra Shine Lipstick is sheer gloss lip color for plump, shiny and moist lips. The lush texture will wrap your lips in a creamy moisturising color that offers high appeal shine which reflects light and instantly makes your lips look fuller. Lips are immediately moist, smooth and irresistibly shiny.
* Tocopheryl Acetate reduces dryness, flaking and restores suppleness.
* Shiny polymers give lips high shine.
* Contains new plumping actives that works to improve the hydration level of your lips, smoothens, and volumizes.
* Presented in a metal case with secure click closing cap.
* Dermatologist tested.
The packaging is quite impressive with a Gun Metal black finish. The shell looks pretty with a glossy look. The cap is also black in color which makes the shade selection very difficult. This twist and click lock system is quite remarkable with this lipstick. Overall they did a good job as far as packaging is concerned. This lipstick has been travelling in my bag and did not melt or leak, so quite safe for travelling.
FORMULA AND TEXTURE-
The formula of the lipstick is very soft and silky. Moreover it glides on the lips very smoothly. The texture is quite soft and fairly creamy. It is easy to apply on the lips and only one swipe is enough for the proper color payoff.
The pigmentation is indeed quite vivid and opaque. You almost do not need a second swipe. The color pay off is wonderful. If you want to make it look a little more glossy, you can always add a layer of gloss on top.
This lipstick stays on me for 4-4.5 hours after which it starts fading a little bit. Since it is not a matte lipstick so the staying power is comparatively less because it tends to vanish when you drink and eat oily and greasy food.
The ELEANOR Ultra Shine Lipstick is available in 6 shades:
* L01 Raspberry
* L02 Melon
* L03 Plum
* L04 Coral
* L05 Raisin
* L06 Cranberry
It retails for Rs. 595.
It has a shelf- life of 24 months and it is made in Italy.
The beauty products from Eleanor are easily available on their website, which is, eleanorbeauty.com
Moreover, they are also available on nykaa.com, purplle.com and flipkart.com
* Availability of wonderful shades.
* Great color payoff.
* Feels very hydrated on the lips.
* Wonderful and unique packaging.
* Doesn’t crease into the lip lines.
* Little expensive.
* Easily transferable.
Overall it is a decent lipstick to invest in. It’s packaging makes it very travel friendly. But, I personally feel that the price is a bit too high for this.
Finally I would like to thank GLAMRADA and ELEANOR for sending across this amazing lipstick.
Love to all!

We got the shades Raspberry and Spice as part of the trial squad.
First Impressions -
The package in black and gold looks very classy and ultra chic. It gives the product luxe effect. The product is made in Italy and is very competitively priced at RS. 595 for 3.4 gm lipstick tube.
Detailed Review -
The shades Raspberry and Spice look very appealing and will go well with all types of Indian skin tones. The name of the shades are appropriate considering their colour.
The lipsticks are very creamy and provide great moisture to your lips. Can be directly applied to chapped lips for moisturizing them. It also does not dry out your lips after a few hours which is great.
The colour payoff varies for both shades. The Raspberry shade has medium coverage and requires two layers for the colour to payoff.
The spice shade on the other hand is more pigmented and a single layer application is good to go.
The lipsticks don't feel very heavy on your lips after application and renders a slight sheen on the lips. Transfers easily and lasts about 2 hours after a single application. If you want it to last longer, you will require touch ups every once in a while.
At a price of RS. 595 per stick it falls in the mid range category. Considering that the lipstick is not long lasting may not be worth as there are products with similar price and long stay effect. However, it's A great lipstick that can double up as a lip gloss/balm.

The Eleanor Ultra Shine Lipstick introduced in India has around 6 shades which are versatile and would suite almost all the Indian skin tones. The Shades I am reviewing here are M02-Melon and M11-Cherry.
Though both are quite shiny on the lips, they vary in their pigmentation level, Cherry being more pigmented than Melon.
Melon is a peachy pink shade and might suite lighter complexion, whereas Cherry is more towards plum shade and it would suite all skin tones, ranging from fair-medium-Tan.
Melon is more like a shiny lip balm and needs pretty much 4 to 5 swipes to get some decent colour on the lips (as shown in the pic). Whereas cherry does the job in just one swipe. I have no complaints here since the brand claims these lipsticks to be sheer to medium coverage! Hence it delivers what it promises!
This pretty much explains the staying power, Cherry takes over Melon here as well ???? Cherry stays put for about 3 hrs without the need for touch ups. And yeah, both of them do transfer!
Surprisingly they do not have any scent, which is a pro when it comes to sensitive noses like mine ???? ????
The application is smooth and glides well on the lips, does not accentuate the fine lines and fades away leaving a mild tint on the lips. Does not dry out the lips and feels light when worn, more like a lip gloss (sans the sticky part of lip gloss). My only concern was it leaves behind minute glitter particles when faded away (May be that’s the reason they are called Ultra Shine!), This might be a problem for some.
These are dermatologically tested, hence safe to use!
The lipsticks are made in Italy and the packaging screams classy rich and stylish. The Gold & Black bullet is definitely a killer combo! <3 It looks more luxurious.
The overall build is quite sturdy and travel friendly, so when you throw it in your bag, chances of lipstick smearing on other stuff is unlikely!
The lipstick is priced at Rs.595 for 3.4g and has a shelf life of 3 years. These are available at Nykaa.com, Purplle.com and Flipkart.com.
Considering the price factor, I may skip the shade Coral and try Cherry instead! But trust me these lipsticks are a good try if you are on the lookout for sheer to medium coverage, high shiny lipsticks!!

I received Eleanor Ultra Shine Lipstick in the shade L02 Melon from Glamrada as a part of the trial squad. Personally, I am not a big fan of lipsticks that have shine or are glossy but keeping my bias aside here are my thoughts on this product. To start with, the packaging of the product really impressed me which is very chic and simple. The shade L02 Melon seems very orangish red once you unlock the cap. However, when applied it gives a very light peachish shade which appears patchy and very uneven as the lipstick is not very pigmented, even after applying two to three coats. As it is highly glossy it is bound to be transferable and one has to reapply the product frequently.
The lipstick retails for ?595 which I feel is quite steep as there are other options available in the market in the same price range with better formulation.
I would not recommend this lipstick shade to people with medium to dark complexion (I have a tan/medium complexion and this shade made me look very washed out and pale). Also, a big no for this shade to those who have pigmented or dark lips. However, those who love glossy shades with fair complexion can give it a try.
Shade - PLUM
Price - INR 595/-
A sheer glossy lip color for plump, shiny and moist lips. The lush texture will wrap your lips in a creamy moisturizing color that offers high appeal shine which reflects light and instantly makes lips look fuller. Lips are immediately moist, smooth and irresistibly shiny.
I'm quite confused with why did the brand actually name this shade Plum, when in real it is a beautiful peachy nude shade.
It gives a medium coverage and high shine glossy finish. And if you have dark pigmented lips, then this is not your cup of tea, it just goes so unevenly and also patchy.
Just like the Intense Color lipstick, this one is also transferable, so it needs quite a lot of touchups. It stayed for 4hours on my lips, and upon snacking or having any meals it kind of washes out.

In comparison to the intense lipstick these have a sheer glossy shine finish more like a highly pigmented lip gloss .This texture and finish of lipstick gives an illusion of fuller moisturize plump lips. I have the shade L02 coral which is a bright summery shade and would look stunning when paired with neutral eyes. It has buildable pigmentation but it glides smoothly and feels hydrating on the lips. It is an ideal lipstick if you have dry lips .The lipsticks comes black./ gold bullet tube with a click lock. Overall the whole look of the packaging reminds me of high end luxurious brands, they are sturdy and travel friendly as well.
