Maybelline Luxe in Lilac Color Elixir Review & Swatches

Maybelline Luxe in Lilac Color Elixir

Maybelline Luxe in Lilac Color Elixir happens to be the second purple shade that the brand released with the new Bleached Neons Summer 2014 Collection.

If you like purples you best be getting your hands on these two limited edition Color Elixir Summer 2014 shades. I’m not really a purple girl…I love the color but on my lips I’m not convinced it’s a me shade.

I do think it looks STUNNING on darker skin tones.

Take a peek!

Maybelline Luxe in Lilac Color Elixir is actually quote like the Luminous Lilac shade I recently swatched and reviewed for you but it doesn’t have as much pink as that shade and is a deeper lilac.

Maybelline Luxe in Lilac Color Elixir

Maybelline Color Elixir are a hybrid formula that’s part gloss, part balm. It’s almost as if they melted a balm and liquified it for application. I find they have a cushy, hydrating texture on my lips with a creme bruelle/vanilla perfume-y taste. I find the texture is a bit creamier and thicker than L’Oreal’s Colour Caresse Shine Stain. This shade is opaque on two layers with a highly shiny finish.

I think at first try when Maybelline introduced the Color Elixir formula I wasn’t terribly impressed. I thought they were nice but not incredible. But the more I use them, the more I love them. The product is fairly unique for drugstore makeup and of excellent quality. Products like this remind me how far drugstore makeup has come as really these can pass for a mid-range lipgloss product!

Maybelline Luxe in Lilac is sure to please those who adore purple, lavender, or lilac shaded glosses and lip products. I look a little strange in it but I’m positive some folks are going to adore this shade.
