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.
Maybelline Orange Aglow Color Elixir is available for a limited time at drugstores.
