Maybelline Color Elixirs by Color Sensational

24 comments
Hello everybody!

I finally managed to find the time to take some pictures and to compose a review of these beautiful lipcolors. In case you never heard of them and you don't know what I'm talking about - it's the Maybelline's new trend: Color Elixirs by Color Sensational.



But don't get superexcited, I didn't get all of them (!) - just the two I thought were the most beautiful and suitable for my skin color. The shades I got were #080 Captivating Carnation and #075 Fuchsia Flourish. Read more if you want to find out my impressions!


SHADES: These lipcolors come in 20 different shades which is a lot to choose from and they've really been following up on the newest trends: fuchsia/pink colors are dominant in the shade palette. You can also find apricot shades, purple and nude ones...but let's focus for a moment on the two shades that I've got!

What does Maybelline say about them?

 Why You'll Love It
  • A trio of concentrates delivers the color of a lipstick, the cushiony care of a balm, and the glass shine of a gloss
  • Our exclusive smoothing angora brush delivers a polished , even application and smoothing sensation to lips

For Best Results
 Apply lipcolor with applicator wand starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.


LONGEVITY: Both shades are quite pigmented for this type of formula and I was surprised to find out that they last for quite some time on my lips. Fuchsia Flourish can even survive meals and drinks, which is a lot! Captivating Carnation will last all day but if you do eat something, it will only remain as a fading tint on your lips (something like Maybelline's Baby Lips) but that's not too bad either.



APPLICATION: I am really happy with the angora brush Maybelline introduced us to with these elixirs. The brush is really fluffy (I don't know the other word for this) and pointed at the top so you can get into those corners and small areas without smudging the color all over your upper or lower lips. Which is great and practical.



FORMULA: The formula of these elixirs is something else. I never had anything like them in my posession. They're similar to liquid lipsticks from L'oreal but also a lot more nourishing and richer. They feel like a lipgloss, but last longer and they're not super sticky as some other glosses. Besides, the smell is amazing - vanilla/caramel! If you like vanilla you will like these. And because of the longevity which is really great for these types of products, you will think of them in terms of lipsticks, not glosses.



PACKAGING & PRICE: Packaging is as you can see, nice and simple, nothing too dramatic about it, but this is what I like the most about them, they're so tiny and sleek they can fit into any cosmetic bag without any troubles and you can carry them with you as you go! They are sold for 8-9 pounds (80-90kn) depending where you look at. I got mine from Ebay from a great seller!

SWATCHES:

  6. Lijepi su, samo bi volila da su pigmentiraniji i mislim da ću ih zbog toga preskočiti. Inače, tebi dobro stoje obe nijanse. ;)
