Maybelline Orange Aglow Color Elixir Review & Swatches

Maybelline Orange Aglow Color Elixir

Maybelline Orange Aglow Color Elixir is one of five brand new, limited edition shades released with the Maybelline Summer 2014 Bleached Neons Collection.

I LOVE this color. It looks super bright in the packaging but it applies as a completely wearable shade!

Take a peek!

Maybelline Orange Aglow Color Elixir is a bright cream coral orange in the tube. If you’re thinking it’ll apply as bright and as neon as you see in the tube you might be disappointed. But since I can’t really wear bright neon orange I was super happy that it applied a little lighter. It has a milky cream look but on my lips its a natural nude peach.

I find Color Elixir sort of remind me of L’Oreal Colour Caresse Shine Stains but have a bit more moisture and are thicker and creamier and more in consistency when compared to L’Oreal Extraordinaire Lip Color.

I’ve always likened the Color Elixir formula to a melted down lip balm. They have a plush, cushy texture that leave lips nicely hydrated. They aren’t completely weightless but wear comfortably. Pigmentation varies from shade to shade and I think Orange Aglow is a sheerer shade. The formula also has a nice glossy finish with a vanilla-ish/creme brulee taste and flavor and a wear of around 3 to 4 hours.

    I was avoiding the Color Elixirs. Then I picked up one of the nude one from the recent nude collection. LOVEEEEE! Now I want more! This one is pretty!


  • 4/4/14 10:55 Majick:

    I love the color but the problem I have with Drugstore buys is, WHY can’t people just leave the seal on? Every time I find a color I want to buy the darn thing has been opened and tested by GROSS GRETA if ya KWIM?


    • 4/4/14 11:06 Isabella Muse:

      lmao omg the gross greta thing is cracking me up!


  • 4/4/14 14:53 kim:

    i LOVE this color. it is just like the Urban Decay Naked coral lip gloss. Except it isnt sticky and doesnt smell like rotten creamsicles. I have never purchased a backup before, but i might need another one of these!


  • 4/4/14 19:26 SusanT:

    OMG, I agree with Fancie, I LOVE the Color Elixirs — this is a genius product from Maybelline!!! I hope they keep this product around forever and keep introducing tons of colors in this formula. I can’t wait to get this color. I already have four Elixirs. Hey, Muse, how are you? My kitteh, Daisy, says hi!


    • 4/7/14 15:50 Isabella Muse:
