Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Gloss Review

Hello all πŸ™‚

I really wanted to do a review on these lip glosses to spread the word about how amazing they are. But first, a little back story on my lip product preferences.

I am aware that I am the pickiest person ever when it comes to lip products. The feeling of chapped, dry lips is so uncomfortable and one of my biggest pet peeves. For years I would only moisturize my lips with straight up vaseline to combat dryness. I would even carry a tube of it around in my purse (which got me made fun of quite a bit by my friends) just so that I would never be without it. I have slowly weened myself off of solely using vaseline to moisturize my lips and now usually just use it at night before bed. As for daytime, I have been using various chapsticks and lip moisturizers (some that are better than others-review on one coming soon) that are a little more socially acceptable to whip out of my purse and apply in public.

This brings me back to these glosses, which are advertised by the Maybelline website as “a trio of concentrates that deliver colour, balm & shine.”

I can say that they fully live up to this claim. Β I bought my first one back in the spring and was shocked to discover that these glosses are not only pigmented but also veryΒ moisturizing. I can put one of these on in the place of a chapstick and have comfortable, moisturized lips for hours. Amazing! They are definitely my favorite lip gloss formula that I have ever tried. On top of their incredible moisturizing properties, the packaging is really nice for a drugstore lipgloss. I purchased mine at Walmart for around eight dollars each.

There are a total of 20 shades in the line, six of which I own:

I really think that these are must have lip products that anyone can wear and enjoy. Please let me know what your favorite lip gloss formula is in a comment, especially if it’s a high end brand. I would like to try out more high end lip products.

Thanks for reading πŸ™‚
