New Maybelline Color Elixirs

Maybelline Color Elixir

The Color Elixirs are the newest lip products to come out from Maybelline. They are supposed to have the pigmentation of a lipstick with the feeling of a lipgloss. There are twenty shades that range from nudes to purples. I controlled myself and purchased only three colors, Breathtaking Apricot, Celestial Coral, Fuchsia Flourish. Although we're in the fall, I picked up the brightest colors I could find. I just couldn't help myself. I think pinks and corals suit my skin color the best no matter the season.

Celestial Coral

The elixir itself is really easy to apply, and feels glossy on the lips. I noticed that it did feel a little heavy at first, but I got used to it. (I might have gone a bit heavy handed the first time, so keep in mind a little goes a long way). The color goes on beautifully and vivid and the wear ability of the Color Elixir is quite substantial, lasting over 4 hours. The gloss is the first to go, but when it does it leaves a pretty stain on the lips. Though the color is opaque, I wish drugstores would let shoppers swatch colors because I don't think all of the colors are true matches with the way they look on the bottle, such as the case with Breathtaking Apricot. It looks like an orange coral blend on the bottle, but looks appears like a baby pink on the lips. Thankfully I liked the color, but this is the reason I am showing you ladies photos of how they look on me.

Fuchsia Flourish Fuchsia Flourish
This is definitely the brightest color of the three I purchased, but it is still a wearable fuchsia and looks great with a bit of bronzer.

I don't really know why this one has coral in the name because it is more of a plum color. It turns out this is the perfect fall shade, so I won't look crazy wearing these bright elixirs.

This is the most everyday color of all three. It's definitely a light pink, so don't be fooled by the bottle.

I think these elixirs are worth trying because they are affordable and can be a great way to rock a bright lip without the drying effects of some lipsticks.  And drugstores usually have buy one get one free promotions, so what's there to lose?
