Hi my dear readers, today I am going to swatch three of my recent purchase Maybelline Color Elixir Color Sensational Creamy Lip Lacquer. You can get it from Priceline now if you are in Australia. I was pretty excited to find it in Priceline as I heard some Youtubers who have raved it about (for certain colour.)
There are total of 12 shades that are available, and I swatches every one of them on the back of my hand. I only bought three of them as cosmetics in Australia are not cheap!
Maybelline describes these lip lacquers as
“Fall under the spell of your most hypnotic lips! Hyper saturated colour, addictive cushiony feel. Our leaf tip brush delivers a precise, polished and even application.”
“With its trio of concentrates Color Elixir provides the saturated colour of a lipstick, a lacquer shine of lipgloss and the cushiony feel of a balm.”
The colours that I own are as follows:
020 Signature Sacrlet
075 Fuchsia Flourish
090 Rose Redifined
I am please with these three colours that I have chosen because they suit my yellow skin tone and brighten my complexion. It glides on the lips effortlessly (I especially like the applicator) and it does not transfer on my teeth. Even though it is glossy it is not sticky or tacky. My lips feel comfortable when first apply and it feels like my own lips after a little while. After light eating and drinking, even though the glossiness is gone, I could still see the actual colour on my lips. This lip lacqure can easily last three hours without needing touch-up, however it is not hard to remove. One thing I want to point out that this lip product does have a strong sweet scent, at least to me (as I don’t like lip products that have strong scent normally); however it isn’t obnoxiously sweet and I can only smell it when I am applying it; the scent would normally go after a couple of minutes.
Have you tried any of these lip lacquers? Which colour is your favorite? What are your thoughts? Please feel free to leave your comments.
Thanks for reading.
