New Maybelline Colour Elixirs

The other day I picked up some of the new Maybelline Colour Elixirs from Boots, and I was so excited to try them - it only seemed right to review them on my blog too. I ended up choosing two colours (three if you count the one that I bought to give away) - Nude Illusion and Blush Essence.

Hybrid lip products have been everywhere in the past couple of years, and these are Maybelline's latest take. They're supposed to give the coverage of a lipstick with the shine of a gloss, and they don't disappoint! These definitely give more of a glossy finish, and most of them are fairly sheer colours that can be built up. My favourite shade so far is the nude, as it's really wearable and is perfect for everyday.

The only downside is that they aren't super long lasting - you will need to touch them up! This doesn't really bother me too much though, as it's what you expect with glossier formulas. The range of colours that Maybelline offers is great, and there's definitely something for everyone, and I also love the applicator as it makes it so easy to apply the product. Another bonus is that they don't dry your lips out and they keep them fairly hydrated too. Overall, they get a thumbs up from me!

Have you tried the Maybelline Colour Elixirs? What did you think?


  1. ahh, it's annoying they're not very long lasting. I am one of those that can't be bothered to keep re apply lip products x


    1. Yeah true, I think they're worth it though! x

  2. Oh the packaging is super cute!
    However i'm really not a fan of products that don't last!
