Drugstore Diva: Maybelline Color Elixir Lipgloss is AMAZING!

Maybelline Color Elixir Lipgloss [$6.99] is AMAZING!!  You know I love a red lip – right?  I really like a glossy red lip…I found my spirit animal!.  This past September, I saw color elixir in action, so imagine my surprise when I was asked to collaborate with Refinery29 and Maybelline to promote the new Color Elixir range!! 

Maybelline Color Elixir Signature Scarlet

My Favorite Shade – Signature Scarlet

The glosses arrived on my doorstep and I got to work swatching and playing!  The shades sent to me were Fuchsia Flourish, Signature Scarlet, and Raspberry Rhapsody. I am in LOVE with Signature Scarlet it’s my JAM.  I love that these are BUILDABLE and have a hyper saturated cushy feel. No shimmer, just glossy opaque shine that lasts and lasts and lasts. Available in TWENTY shades, your going to want more than one.

The Rundown:

  • 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
  • Pointed Tip sponge applicator for precision application
  • Light Vanilla scent (YUM!)
  • Long lasting (shine dims first and leaves behind a gorgeous stain)
  • LOADS of shine (not sticky)
  • EXTREMELY hydrating
