Maybelline Color Elixir Color Sensational Creamy Lip Lacquer Review

Phewww that's one long name for a lip product!!!

I finally got my hands on this highly talked about lip product a few days ago.

Let's start with the packaging. I'm so impressed with the packaging. It's the size of a lipstick and the lip lacquer sits inside a lipstick shaped tube. This reminds me a little bit of the Dior Addict Fluid Stick. The tear drop shaped wand makes for an easy application.

The colours that I choose are 100 Petal Plush and 025 Mauve Mystique.

Petal Plush is a light pink with shimmer through out. I really liked the colour when I swatched it at the shop but am not entirely sure I like it on my lips. It looks a bit pale but I will need to try and see how it works layered on top of lipsticks.

Mauve Mystique is a beautiful dusty rose pink. It reminds me a little of the Revlon Berry Haute colour and I think it would be a great match for layering over that lipstick. I quiet like this colour especially for the upcoming winter months.

The pigmentation on both of these is amazing. I didn't think that they would be so pigmented and one swipe gives full colour.

The texture is shiny, smooth and hydrating and doesn't feel sticky like a standard lipgloss. That has completely won me over as I want glossy lips sometimes but absolutely loath lipgloss.

These also have a very sweet scent which I'm still a little unsure off. I prefer my products to be scentless but this isn't all that bad. It's sweet smelling kind of like a combination of candy and baby powder.

The only downside to it is the longevity. Petal Plush disappeared within an hour on me and the Mauve Mystique lasted about 2 - 3 hours. This is without eating or drinking.

Overall it's a great product. I really like the fact that it's quiet pigmented like a lipstick and so glossy without the stickiness of a lipgloss. I will definitely add a few more colours to my collection over the next few months.

Have you tried the Color Elixir yet? What do you think of it? What is your favourite colour?
