Maybelline Iridescent Shine Color Elixir in Mystical Magenta Review & Swatches

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Hello Beauties,

Recently Maybelline released a whole new range of Color Elixirs in their line called the Iridescent Elixirs. I picked up two shades from this collection a beautiful peach shade which you can see HERE and this beautiful shade. 

Mystical Magenta is a beautiful purple shade with a pretty shine to it. The Iridescent formula has a very shiny and sheer finish. I noticed that even though these are sheer they do build up nicely and have a great pigmentation. These felt like more of a balm gloss to me than the original formula which is a hybrid of a gloss and a lipstick. The wear time of these was okay, it did not last a long time on the lips and did feel a little heavy to me. When I rubbed my lips together the product felt mushy ( if that makes any sense). Over all I love the shade and elixirs they are great to have in your collection. The days you don't feel like wearing lipstick put these on and you will love it. Let me know in the comments below what do you think about these? Thank you so much for reading and have a great day.
