Ola bonita chica’s!
I have been so into lip glosses recently that I feel fourteen or fifteen again, just getting introduced to makeup 😛 I remember my mum allowing me to buy one from the drug store when I was with her and I was so excited when I got my hands on one. That lovely almost toffee-like sticky feel on your lips and retouching it quickly before posing for a photo. Well, all these memories have been flooding back when I am out looking for lip glosses these days. What was your first makeup product you ever bought? Anyway, I have a very pleasant surprise for you today, a lip gloss that works so well it even all through my cardio plus abs workout at the gym. Want to know more about it? Let’s get started!
This shimmery orange lip gloss comes in a rectangular transparent plastic packaging with the colour shining through clearly. The inside of the tube that holds the product is shaped like a lipstick bullet which is pretty cool. The silver top screws off to reveal that the lip gloss has a black top and all this together gives it a very high end look. The applicator is like a rabbit ear shaped fuzzy ended thing. The shade numbers and names are listed on the bottom.
Product Claims (from the official website):
USD 8.99 and GBP 6.99 and these are available in India as well. The prices vary in stores. For some reason, nowhere on the product or online does it mention how many ml of product is in the tube.
My Experience with Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color in 525 Glistening Coral:
Now, orange is a colour that I never buy, especially for my lips. I think that is why when I saw this gloss, I picked it up because I wanted to experiment with it. I am really happy that I took a risk with this shade because among all the other shades that I have bought from this line, this one was the best! I think I like it because it does not show up as bright or actually nothing like the colour in the tube. What I like best about this shade is the fine shimmer in it. It does not feel gritty during application or even when on the lips. I love the way they reflect when any light hits them and they make your lips really sparkle.
This lip gloss when applied makes my lips look very juicy and plum which I love! The colour like I said is quite sheer with a hint of tangerines and it is very flattering. This product does not settle in fine lines at all and it does not bleed. It is also not very sticky when applied. Neither does it feel heavy or too much on lips. In fact, as I mentioned, I wore this to the gym yesterday and not only did it last on my lips for the two hours there, it also allowed me to work out while still feeling like my lips could breathe. This shade is very smooth on application. I do have a huge issue with the applicator.
The furry texture of it has left me with streaky application with other shades from this line, but somehow, for this shade, it worked fine, but can you please see the curved shape I found it in when I broke the seal and opened my product? It looks like the end of Aladdin’s shoes! What the hell Maybelline! I tried straightening it, but it is now so close to the verge of breaking that I have just given up with it. Most of the applicators were bent, even with the other shades I bought which is really annoying.
Pros of Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color in 525 Glistening Coral:
- Flattering shade.
- Lovely glitter sparkle.
- Lasts for a long time.
- Do not need to double dip for more product for one application.
- Does not settle in fine lines.
Cons of Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color in 525 Glistening Coral:
- Faulty applicator.
- Bulky lip gloss, not sleek like a regular round tube.
Would I Repurchase Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color in 525 Glistening Coral?
I do not think I will repurchase any more of these Maybelline lip glosses and will not recommend them to you guys as well. After buying 4 from this line and constantly getting subpar results for one reason or the other, it is just not worth it. I would have probably recommended this shade had the applicator been decent, but at this point, I am just giving up with Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Glosses.
