Hello Beautiful ones,
Hope all of you are enjoying good health and blissful ambience around IMBB with lots of giveaways and gift treasure. I am feeling blessed and recalling good old days while my blessing Aadya is fast asleep on my lap! I had been to her class last time where I was asked to explain about any of my work that I loved doing in the past few hours or days, I exclaimed as if I needed to answer, “who is the prime minister of India :P” I kept on thinking and they ultimately changed their question to my favorite hobby. Hell, it was a long pause and silence all around. Well, you know, I definitely knew the answers, but I could not lie to the little kiddos that I never bothered to think about my hobbies which I truly love! Finally, I came back with a thought and danced for an hour while my baby was imitating my moves, can’t tell you, it was really weird, but awesome! I never laughed out so loud and felt so good after such a weird hour 😛 My hubby was stunned by our new avatar and lastly, he gave me a balm saying you need “Moov” today. I just replied I definitely need to “move” on, not moov buddy 😉 Honestly, I did realize that my joints were paining like hell, but I was too embarrassed to accept 😛
Anyway, let me introduce another gorgeous glossy balm from Maybelline Color Elixir series with you today which is my second favorite shade – a subtle peachy pink glossy balm. So, please read on further to explore Maybelline Color Elixir “Rose Redefined.”
$6-$9 for 0.17 Fl Oz (50 ml), price may vary from store to store, I bought them for $7 each 🙂

A trio of concentrates delivers the color of a lipstick, the cushiony care of a balm, and the glass shine of a gloss. Our exclusive smoothing angora brush delivers a polished , even application and smoothing sensation to lips.
This liquid balm comes in a transparent thick plastic glass packaging with bronze silver cap, and leaf-shaped doe-foot applicator. Shade of gloss is clearly visible from the tube which gives an illusion like a lipstick, absolutely amazing! It does have a slight vanilla smell which is not overpowering. An ultimate travel-friendly and mess-free packaging.
My Experience with Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color – Rose Redefined:
This particular glossy balm “Rose Redefined” seems a soft pink shade with a hint of peach and subtle sparkles, though sparkles are hardly noticeable on lips. Sometimes, it looks like mauve pink and sometimes it just gives a barbie pink tint on lips, really amazing! A beautiful gloss to add softness and glam to the face with juicy translucent tint. It will mostly compliment fair and medium skin tones I think; however, my beautiful dusky neighbor who is also a sweet mom to a lovely boy flaunts this shade so gracefully that I totally love it on her. Unlike other Maybelline glosses, it is a sweet surprise to notice that this gloss is more or less devoid of shimmer except a few sparkles which hardly get noticed.
The texture is also smooth and milky which glides like milk cream. I do not even bother about my dry lips whenever I wear this balm. It is my quick fix these days when I literally rush out and hardly get time to groom myself! Just 1-2 swipes of this gloss and you get soft and hydrated lips. It gives sheer pink pigmentation on my lips which lasts for 2-3 hours with heavy meals and it does not leave any stain once wiped off.
It would not be good for pigmented lips as its too sheer to hide blemishes and the staying power is another big question! However, it is much pigmented than a gloss and the color is well visible on my lips. Since I am okay with touch ups and slight fading, at least it does not leave any trace on the lips, hence I can live with minor flaws. It is slightly sticky though manageable and gives hydrated and smooth feel to the lips. I am flattered by this peachy, barbie, amazing pink balm and I am sure you all would love to wear it on lips. A beautiful subtle everyday glossy shade.
Let’s sum up pros and cons:
Pros of Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color – Rose Redefined:
- A beautiful peachy barbie pink glossy balm with slight hint of sparkle.
- It is a creamy, milky gloss which instantly hydrates lips.
- It gives a sheer translucent pink hue on lips.
- Lips feel nourished and fuller as long as it stays on the lips.
- A subtle tinted everyday glossy juicy shade suitable for all age groups, preferably fair and medium beauties; however, I do see it looks good on every skin tone.
- Stickiness is not bothering.
- Really feathery light on the lips.
- It won’t bleed or settle into fine lips.
- Attractive and travel-friendly packaging.
Cons of Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color – Rose Redefined:
- Does transfer a lot.
- Staying power could have been improved.
- Another tricky shade for pigmented lips for its sheer color payoff.
Apart from minor flaws, I love this pink and wear it daily for it nourishes my lips, gives such barbie peach tint to my lips which in turn gives a pinkish glow to my face as well. A beautiful shade apt for winter days and I am sure you all would love to own it, however, as I say I would only get it for 6-7 bucks! So gals, do try this pink and keep moving on to keep “Moov” at bay 🙂
