Maybelline Color Elixir Liquid Color Review

Hi everyone and Happy Halloween!

Today I bring you the newest lip product by Maybelline.

I found this display at my local Ulta and not one was gone. All the colors are beautiful but only came out with one. 

Maybeline claims this stuff gives you the color of a lipstick, hence that's why the packaging looks like a lipstick, and also gives your lips the care of a lip balm all while giving you high shine of a lip gloss. The brush is also very interesting. It was designed to give you even application and a smoothing sensation. 

I chose mine in Nude Illusion. I have tons of bright glosses and I thought a nude would be something different. The packaging is nice and simple. I like that it is a small gloss and easy to throw in a purse when your on the go. If you turn it upside down it looks like a lipstick.

Almay came out with something kind of the same and I love it so much. It makes my lips feel so nice and hydrated. So I was interested how this would compare. 

The first thing I noticed was the smell. It smells like a very cheap perfume and I dislike it very much. I didn't want to try it because the smell is so strong but I went ahead and tried it. The brush does give a very smooth application and it feels comfortable on the lips. What I do like about it is that its a little thick but not in a bad way but not in a sticky way but in a creamy way. As for feeling like a balm it does feel very moisturizing on the lips. This nude gloss is a perfect shade gloss and would look great on top of a nude lipstick. The thing about this I don't think I will use it because of the smell. 

I give this a 2 out of 5 because the smell is so strong. 

Thank you for reading and until next time!
