MAYBELLINE // The Color Elixirs | Review + GIVEAWAY! [CLOSED]Friday, December 05, 2014
The newest release from Maybelline has come in the form of these gloss slash liquid lipstick hybrids, dubbed The Color Elixirs*. They have been out for a wee while now but I finally got my hands on one to try and I also have a sneaky wee giveaway at the very end of this post...
So what's the deal with these? Well first off, the Elixirs are housed to look like a lipstick in a sleek plastic tube, with a shiny silver lid, but inside it is actually a gloss like lip product. I have the shade 090 Rose Redefined and it can only be described as a rosey pink shade (well done Maybelline!)
Now I am not the biggest lip gloss person, but I'm slowly beginning to really enjoy them (case in point, this post here), so I wasn't sure how I would get along with this one but I actually really like it! The pigment is strong in these, they go on feeling quite thick but they don't have the awful stickiness to them, just enough tack that makes them last on the lips and not just come off on your morning coffee cup. The applicator hugs the lips perfectly and dispenses the perfect amount of product to the lips. They leave a shiny, glossy finish to the lips and after they wear away my lips still feel moisturised; these things are a little bit magic if you ask me!
Because it's December which means Christmas is very soon, it is the perfect time to giveaway two of the Elixirs to two of you lovely people! To giveaway I have 075 Fuchsia Flourish and 060 Nude Illusion, and you can see the colour of these amazingly well in Shaaanxo's swatch video here and these retail for NZD $19.99 each.
All you have to do to enter is tell me in the comments which Elixir colour you would like to win, either Fuchsia Flourish or Nude Illusion. There will be two winners who will win the Elixir of their choice, as provided in the comments. This is only open to NZ residents and it will close in one week from today on Friday 12th December, so I can post this to you before Christmas.
*PR Sample. Big thank you to Pead PR for supplying these to giveaway.
