Review: Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color in Vision In Violet

Maybelline Color Elixir in Vision In Violet

So I’m kind of late jumping on the bandwagon with these Maybelline Color Elixirs. I’ve heard such wonderful things about them so I finally decided to try it out. I got this in the shade Vision In Violet because it is so bright and colorful, and I don’t have a shade like this in my collection. I think it would be perfect for spring!

Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color – “Experience saturated lip color, sensuous balm care and polished lip shine from Maybelline New York Color Elixir by Color Sensational. The exclusive smoothing angora brush delivers a polished, even application and smoothing sensation to lips. The balm infused formula, with pure color pigments, leaves lips feeling cushiony soft.”

I like that you can see the product inside the packaging. I hate when you have to purchase a lipstick or gloss and have to trust the color that is depicted on a little label sticker instead of being able to truly see the color. This shade is true to what it shows and it is absolutely beautiful! This color is a bright purple with blue undertones. The texture is very creamy, smooth, and applies like a dream. It has a tear-shaped applicator that is slanted for easy use and precision. I love the shape of the applicator because it makes it sooo easy to apply. I was thinking that I might have to use a lip brush since the color is so intense, but I was able to apply this in no time! There is a sweet, perfumey scent to it but I didn’t mind it at all.

This feels extremely soft and hydrating on my lips. The formula is a bit thick but I didn’t find it to be uncomfortable. This did slightly settle into the lines of my lips but you could hardly tell. The color is so opaque which means that you don’t need a lot of product to get an intense color, however, it is very buildable. It also did not feel sticky whatsoever which is amazing considering that it gives off a glossy finish. This only lasted on me for about 3 hours before it started to fade and it did leave a fuchsia stain to my lips, which I thought was odd. I really love this product and plan to pick up a few other colors. I highly recommend these Color Elixirs!
