Summer 2014: Maybelline Radiant Raspberry Color Elixir Review & Swatches

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying. Maybelline recently launched their Summer 2014 collection, and of course I had to go to my local Wallgreens to see if they had anything in stock. This time I got lucky and there was a display and there was everything in the display. So it took me a while to figure out which colors I want to pick from the lip collection. I ended up picking 2 color whispers and 2 elixirs. 

  First of all lets talk about the packaging, for me it was alright. Nothing out of the ordinary, but I do have to say that these are really small for the price you pay. I have bought the Elixirs before and I was not a big fan of them, but boy this time they did a great job. 

The color selection in this collection ranges from pinks to coral. One of the shades I picked up is Radiant Raspberry, which is a bright creme raspberry shade. It does not have any shimmer or sparkle it is a creme shade. The application is really easy, it is bright with two layers and if you want just a little bit of it one is layer is great too. The pigmentation is great, it is really opaque at first layer and you can build it up too.

The formula is thick, but really moisturizing. The gloss goes on very creamy and blends easily, also it does not transfer to the corners of your lips. Also before I forget, these do have a light sweet scent to them which I don't mind at all. 

 Over all I am impressed with the shades in this collection and also the pigmentation of this collection. I will be reviewing more products from this collection in posts ahead.

I hope all of you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments below if you have picked up anything from this collection. Thank you so much for reading and have a wonderful day.
