Review: Maybelline Color Elixir by Color Sensational


Hi beauties! I picked up Maybelline Color Elixer by Color Sensational in shade 040 Vision in Violet when I was in US. You might be thinking Laura why are you just now writing about it. Well, you see I picked a color, which is not really my color. I haven't really been into rocking purple lip till now ;)


First off the packaging is so cute! I love that I can see the color of the product and the shape of the packaging is nice too (by that I mean, it will be easy to store in my collection).

It comes with a applicator, which has a pointy tip to make it easy to apply it. I find that the applicator carries too much product on it, for me personally. So I have to kind of play with it to get a nice application on lips.


The product itself is nicely pigmented and it doesn't feel sticky on lips, which is a huge plus. The formula of it is creamy and it glides on lips easily. It doesn't feel uncomfortable on the lips.

The thing I don't like is the strong scent it has. I can't describe it, but it just smells weird, but not in a way that it has gone bad. Once its on my lips I can't smell the scent of it.

Now lets talk about the staying on power. And I'm impressed, that it past my tea/coffee test (I'll be drinking cup coffee or tea and see if my lip color can survive it). After that my lips were not as glossy as before, but there was some glossiness to them and the color was still in present :)


Overall I'm liking it. I think I would like it more if I would have picked a color, which would fit my complexion better. I'm still not fan of the scent though, but I'll make it work some how.


Have you tried these Maybelline Color Elixirs before?


Thanks for reading! xo's

  1. Ooh, I'd be too scared to try a purple lip! I would have loved to see a pic of how it looked on you though :)

  2. Does the colour go on your lips like that? I have an Estee Lauder lipgloss like this and it looks that colour but when it goes on it's hardly got any colour in it. It was disappointing cause I don't usually go for colours like this either but though I'd try it. Might give this one a go though!
