Maybelline Does It Again! Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color Swatches

Hey Y'all!

Recently Maybelline surprised us with another addition to their amazing lip color line, the Color Elixir Lip Colors.  When I first saw these in store I did not know what to expect from them being that the case looked like it housed a lipstick instead of a lip gloss, I passed.  After weeks of seeing a particular color pop up on the blogosphere I decided to mosey on down to the nearest drugstore and get it for myself, problem was, I couldn't find it, yup, purples are always the hardest to find.  Long story short, I eventually stumbled across it yesterday and decided to pick it up along with another color.  Here's what I picked up!

Left to Right: Fuchsia Flourish & Vision in Violet

Top: Vision in Violet Bottom: Fuchsia Flourish (FLASH)

These colors went on very smoothly and reminded me of a luxury brand consistency, well done Maybelline!  There is a scent that reminds me of cherry bubblegum but isn't noticeable once applied to the lips.  The gloss wand is a doe foot applicator and allows for smooth application.  The price is $7.49 at your local drugstore which is a decent price for the quality.  I can't wait to wear these!  Have you tried them yet?  Tell me in the comments!


  1. glad to see your review... are these opaque on the lips? how do they compare to the revlon super lustrous glosses (my fave drugstore glosses)?

    1. they are pretty opaque on the lips, more than i thought they would be, i'll have a fotd with one of these in the future and a comparison post with the super lustrous coming up soon. :) thanks for stopping by! :)
