Ola bonita chica’s!
How is everyone doing today? With being smack bang in the middle of summer, the only thing keeping me afloat is discovering new makeup and beauty products. Is anyone else in the same boat as me? Just kidding! I know all of you over at IMBB are! Haha! So, I have for you a product that everyone is going crazy about these days, these new Maybelline lip glosses that look like lipsticks! This particular shade is also a dupe for an Urban Decay gloss, so stick around and find out which one.
These lip glosses are so cutesy to look at! They look like inverted lipsticks in the plastic packaging! So these lip glosses basically come in an elongated rectangular clear plastic packaging and the container holding the product inside is in the shape of what a plastic bullet looks like and the entire product colour just shines through it. The shiny silver tops screw off easily and secures well. The applicator is a furry elongated heart shaped thing.
USD 8.99 and GBP 6.99, but prices do vary across different drug stores. I am sorry I just cannot find anywhere how much product there is in here, so I do not know how many ml you are getting for your buck!
My Experience with Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color in 060 Nude Illusion:
Again, I am sorry that at the start I am going to give away the basic idea of the whole review, but for all the hype that this product had going for it, it definitely did not deliver! So, this is a no shimmer or glitter light neutral nude that I thought will obviously go well with my Indian skin tone, but boy does this lip gloss like to prove me wrong. I was really surprised to see that this colour did not do well on my lips and it came off a little ashy nude.
Also, the consistency of this lip gloss is very watery. I cannot even be nice and call it sheer, I just have to tell you it is like some homemade monstrosity where the colour looks like it separated from the base. It does not look like that in the tube, but as you can see on my lip swatches, it is just too liquid-y. The lip gloss looks opaque when I swatch it on my hand, but I do not know why this property does not transfer on my lips!
As you can see from my swatches, this product also settles into the fine lines of my lips and this is not a flattering look at all. And this is with minimal use of the product! I did not double dip for these swatches. You could very obviously note this if you were standing in front of me and for this reason, I just have no use for this product at all.
I also have a huge issue with the applicator. While it looks like a cute furry bunny ear, the application it gives is very streaky and this may well be due to the fibers on it. It holds a good amount of product for one application, but I do not like how it applies anyway.
This whole product is like a hot wife that looks amazing but does not know how to actually do anything. It is such a good looking lip gloss but this shade just does not deliver!
Is it a dupe: Yes it is, but not a very good one!
This shade is a very good dupe of Urban Decay’s Naked Ultra Nourishing Lip Gloss in Nooner which is also a light neutral nude, but I would suggest that you shell out the extra bucks and buy the Urban Decay one instead!

Would I Repurchase Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color in 060 Nude Illusion?
I would never repurchase this shade or tell you to do the same even if you had that spare money lying around with nothing else to do with it.
