Happy Mother’s Day to every beautiful mom, expecting mom and beautiful daughters around. I hope all of you might be excited to plan a surprise for your mom or probably your kids might be planning the one for you! Our daughter’s playschool is celebrating Mother’s Day event and I am really excited to see what my baby and her daddy are planning for the event. I would like to get a day off from babysitting, kitchen and household chores 😛
Anyway, I am here to share another lip elixir from Maybelline which is different from my usual bright, deep shades as it’s a perfect creamy pink nude shade. So, please read on further to know more about Maybelline Color Elixir in Caramel Infused.

- Fall under the spell of the elixir effect.

- The new hypnotic lip sensation.
This creamy lip balm comes in a usual transparent tube with bronze-silver cap. It has a heavenly vanilla smell which lingers on for a few minutes. Overall, an absolutely travel-friendly and classic packaging.
My Take on Maybelline Colorsensational Color Elixir in Caramel Infused:
You know I hate caramel, I don’t eat caramelized candies, popcorn – yuk 😛 but I liked this caramel infused lip balm except for the fact that it tends to settle in fine lip crevices some times. Caramel Infused seems a perfect neutral pink for fair/medium Indian skin tone though it might be tricky on our skin tones at the same time. I feel it works as a neutral shade on light skin tones while I do see that it tends to look warm pink on my tanned skin sometimes.
It is quite an opaque lip balm which gives nearly 60-70% color payoff in first swipe and in two swipes, it might give medium to full coverage depending upon person to person. However, it does not look as perfect as other color elixir shades on my lips. I usually swipe it 2-3 times for even coverage and clean finish. It gives slight pinkish neutral color payoff on my lips while providing prolonged hours of hydration even after the balm fades into a soft stain.
The texture of this balm is as usual creamy and glossy which really glides like a dream on my lips, though it often tends to settle in fine lines. However, I am left with soft and hydrated lips for hours as it stays for decent 4-5 hours on my lips with light snack and water sips. It might fade completely after one heavy meal leaving behind soft stain which nourishes my lips for another 2-3 hours and looks pretty fine. Overall, I am satisfied with this caramel infused shade though I would like to experiment with other neutral shades in market and hence I may not get it again as we have tons of tempting neutrals around. I would recommend this shade to every office/college girl.
Pros of Maybelline Colorsensational Color Elixir in Caramel Infused:
• A creamy shimmer free warm pink shade.
• It is nearly an opaque shade which gives medium to full coverage with 1-2 swipes.
• It can be worn alone or with heavy eye makeup accordingly.
• It has a silky texture which is more easy to work on well scrubbed lips.
• As long as it stays on lips, I feel well nourished and hydrated lips.
• Even if it fades away completely, I feel quite soft and hydrated lips for another 2-3 hours.
• It stays for decent 4-5 hours with light snacks and water sips.
• It does not leave any stain other than soft pink lips which look pretty fine.
• Attractive classy and travel-friendly packaging at affordable price.
Cons of Maybelline Colorsensational Color Elixir in Caramel Infused:
• It might look slight uneven on lips sometimes.
• It might be tricky on tanned skin.
• It does transfers.
Apart from its uneven finishing sometimes, I do not have any other issues with this balmy liquid. However, I am not yet convinced with neutrals completely hence I may skip it for a while. But it might be loved by all nude and pink gloss lovers provided your lips are well scrubbed and hydrated as it tends to look uneven sometimes! I would give it 3.8/5!
I know many of you sweet people were eagerly waiting to meet Aadya and hence I could not resist myself from sharing her first spring clicks. Thank you so much for your blessings and love. Happy mother’s day.
