I’m sooo glad I went with my gut and did NOT cave on an Ebay purchase for a few of these. I remember praying and truly not having enough extra to get these so I went with wisdom and let it go. Thank you, thank you to the Maybelline team for gifting me with not one, not two, but eight if not ALL of your lovely newly available Lip Polish lippies! They’re known abroad as “Maybelline Color Elixirs” and ever since London-based Canadian Youtube-r “Essiebutton” (Estee) raved about these I’ve been hankering to have me one or two, and now without lifting a finger, I do…and so many more than I imagined!
Why You’ll Love It
- A trio of concentrates delivers the color of a lipstick, the cushiony care of a balm, and the glass shine of a gloss
- Our exclusive smoothing angora brush delivers a polished , even application and smoothing sensation to lips
I love how elegantly lined up they are in a box suited to their size, they kind of remind me of how the Aromatherapy Associates Bath Oils are packed. What the lip polishes are basically are non-sticky lipglosses, they give a pigmented sort of jelly shine without the annoying stickiness and fade nicely to a noticeable stain after a few hours (3-4), plus they’re easy to bring and a snap to reapply, need I mention they won’t cost you an arm and a leg at about Php450/475? I set my eyes on this wearable lavender-ish color GLAM5 which…obviously, I’m being very typical at this very moment, best represents next year’s color of the year, Radiant Orchid.
Actually I’ve been onto these purple-y shades even before the color of the year was announced. These tenderly tint the lips and in fact when you swatch them on your hand or arm (sorry don’t have a swatch photo) they sort of look like watercolors on the first swipe but with a pop of color. Color intensity is build-able, which is just uniquely awesome for a gloss. Tip though, for any lippie like this exfoliate lips and hydrate lips beforehand, dry flaky lips don’t ever help when applying products like these. The lighter shades are lovely to wear for a soft everyday look and the deeper ones are gorgeous, too. Here I’m wearing GLAM 5 and I do love me a good gloss that adds OBVIOUS color and lasts not at the expense of sealing your lips together. I hate lipgloss that looks lovely in the tube but amount to “zero” when you slick it on. These aren’t like that and they don’t have an odd taste or smell. I especially recommend these if you want your lips to catch the light in joyful group photos this holiday season. 🙂 Available almost everywhere Maybelline is sold in local department stores, Mercury Drug, or Watsons outlets. Are you done with shopping and wrapping? I’m still wrapping a few more but am excited for our first Christmas family gathering tonight, Dad’s side! An early Merry Christmas to all of you, mwah! xxx
