Read My Lips: Maybelline Colour Sensational Colour Elixir in Fuchsia Flourish

Maybelline Colour Sensational Colour Elixir in Fuchsia Flourish

Man, I waited for months for the Maybelline Colour Sensational Colour Elixirs to be launched here in Australia. The US and UK already had this collection for months before this even touched our shores. I have Emma to thank for sending out the alert that this has finally launched in Australia.

I didn’t want to buy more than lipgloss to try out just in case I end up not liking it and wasting the rest. I stood in front of the Maybelline shelves for ages just trying to decide on just one shade. One shade out of so many. Such a tough job but one’s got to do it. 😉

Maybelline Colour Sensational Colour Elixir in Fuchsia Flourish Swatch

After mulling over the shades, I decided on Fuchsia Flourish. Oh what a beautiful shade it is. The first swipe of colour on the lips packs a punch in colour. When layered, it’s a beautiful, glossy fuchsia and when you blot it with a piece of tissue, you get a sweet muted pink. It’s the sort of colour that’s perfect for the workplace; worn blotted and sheer during the day and layer it further for a bright pop of fuchsia for after-work drinks. All with just one lip product.

The packaging reminds me a little of Dior Addict’s Fluid Sticks where it looks like the lipstick bullet is at the bottom of the tube. It gives you an indication of the colour of the lipgloss.

The lipgloss is quite tacky in the tube but glides on the lips smoothly upon application. It’s not overly sticky, which is what I like in lipglosses but I’d still avoid wearing this on windy days lest my hair gets stuck in the gloss.

Onto acquiring more shades!

    I haven’t tried ’em yet, but love that fuchsia swatch & on you! Like you, I mostly prefer lipstick & I have a lot of glosses w/o enough color floating around. Looks like the Maybellines have plenty of color! I actually adore the Power Lip line from Milani, it’s a liquid lipstick & gloss in one. Too bad Milani isn’t in Australia. But then, you have great brands & products that we don’t get

      Thanks Allison! It’s such a beautiful shade, I love it! Yeah we can only get Milani online which is a bummer because I’ve heard such great things about the brand.

    I was about to say that the packaging looked so much like the Dior one! Sigh…I think I have to wait until Priceline has a sale for me to get that one. Plus that stupid beauty diet I decided to be on. WHY did I agree????

      Hahaha that would be one diet I’d never be able to stick to! Don’t worry about Priceline; just wait for the 50% off sale Chemist Warehouse has from time to time. That’s a much better discount than Priceline and you’ll be able to snag one of these for less than a tenner. 🙂
