I’ve loved wearing lipstick ever since middle school (yep started that young with makeup!). So to me lipstick/gloss has been one of my favorite signature makeup items I couldn’t really leave the house without growing up. I usually wear red lipsticks, and this was a first trying out this pretty pink color from Maybelline. I absolutely loved the bright color and how well it brightened up a neutral outfit. Here I styled this lipstick with lighter colors, light pinks, purples, and browns to not overpower the lipstick color.
It’s been exciting to work with Refinery 29 and Maybelline to review Maybelline’s launch of their new collection, Color Elixir . What’s great about this product I haven’t seen with others, is it’s an all-in-one product: lipstick, lip gloss, and lip balm. When applying the lip product, it has a thick consistency which definitely helped with moisturizing my lips (essential for me — my main issue is having dry lips). When applying this product, I had to blot a little bit more, but this was only because I started out with applying a large amount of the lip gloss. So I suggest applying a little in the beginning and then it will stay on perfectly. My favorite part about the lip gloss is it has a beautiful pigmented color, here in a pretty fuchsia pink.
Overall, the fact its super moisturizing and the color is amazing, bright and fun (with a pretty shine), these lip glosses from Maybelline Color Elixir are so lovely especially with the holidays coming up!
I’m excited to share with you one more post after this on their launch! I’ll be reviewing another color from their collection, the Signature Scarlet. Stay tuned this Wednesday for this next post of the two-part series!
