On most days, when it comes to what’s on my lips, it has to be something that’s simple to apply, has nice pigmentation, wears evenly, and looks great. A sort of all-in-one…is that asking too much? Maybe, but with the new Maybelline Color Elixirs, I think I’ve found my perfect product.
OK, so what makes these so special? They’re a new hybrid product that packs all the different lip products perks into one. You get the pigmentation of a lipstick, the shine of a gloss, and the moisturizing benefits of a balm all in one beautiful little package.
I picked up Breathtaking Apricot and Mandarin Rapture which as you can see in the swatches are a beautiful warm pink and a vibrant orange. They’re easy to apply, go on evenly, don’t feel sticky or tacky, and hang around for 3 or 4 hours. As if that wasn’t good enough, I’m in love with the way these feel on my lips. They go on so smoothly and feel so unique– almost like a gel. I don’t have one other lip product that feels the same and at $8.99 a tube, they are definitely well worth the price– and even cheaper at Target I think.
Have you tried these? What do you think?
