The Review: Maybelline Colour Elixir
nueyork Friday, August 1, 2014
Thankfully it was love at first application. I picked up the shade "Mauve Mystique" which definitely does not seem to be the most pigmented shade of the bunch, but it is lovely none the less and tops a lot of my other mauvey-toned pinks perfectly. It is also nice standalone as it is a similar shade to my natural lip colour and seems to just even them out and make them look allover prettier.
When it comes to my usual "I hate glosses!" rant it's due to thickness and stickiness. I am just bothered by things that have a large presence on my lips. I don't want to be constantly thinking "oh yep, there is product on my lips" and with these there is none of that. They are by no means a long wearing product, it hangs around for roughly three hours on me when I'm not eating, and if I were, they would most likely disappear instantly. However, there is no claim to them being long wearing and nothing about the formula would suggest it, so it's not a con just something to be noted.
Overall, I am obsessed with everything about these from the look to the packaging and the scent - vanilla heaven! Even the applicator is lovely with it's tiny taper that is perfect for getting into all those corners. I would highly recommend these to anyone, especially those gloss-phobes like me because I think you'll be presently surprised.
How did you get along with these and what other colours would you recommend pigmentation wise?
