Every Australian beauty lover rejoiced when these lovelies finally hit our shores! I think I may have even squealed when I found out they were finally stocked at Priceline. After watching every YouTuber and their mum talk about the Maybelline Color (Colour for my Australians and UK friends) Sensational Elixirs, I knew I needed them in my life. I was so impatient that I ordered some off the Walmart website and the day they arrived was the day they were released in Australia (just my luck). I quickly hopped into my car to turn my 5 lip elixirs into 8, like a make up magic trick.
These creatures deserve all the hype, similar to NYX lip butters they feel amazing on the lips. Creamy, not sticky(yippee), great colour payoff and a perfect hybrid between a lipstick and a gloss. They are created to be worn sheen, however the colour is very much build-able. Choosing a favourite colour, is what I imagine mothers feel like when they have to choose a favourite child. I just can't pick because I love them all equally. Captivating Carnation and Celestial Coral are very wearable for an every day look and Signature Scarlet gives you the perfect hollywood red lip.
On top of all the formula positives, the packaging is too adorable (excuse the residue from the security sticker, no amount of hot soapy water assisted. Don't you just hate that?). The applicator is fantastic for an easy application, the spade/diamond shape is made really well and great for applying on the run. It reminds me a lot of the YSL Colour Volupte applicator, except there isn't the additional curve in the middle. Overall, the product is very comparable to all the high end products creating a very similar hybrid between a lipstick and a gloss including the YSL Colour Volupte and the Dior Fluid Stick.
Thank you for reading darlings, be sure to give these a go and let me know what you think.
