Maybelline Colour Sensation Elixir in Blush Essence

Maybelline Colour Sensation Elixir in Blush Essence

The Maybelline Colour Sensation Elixirs (£6.99 - available here) have been out for a little while now but despite my pining I've held off from picking one up until quite recently when i treated myself to a few new items from Boots and i decided to pick up the Maybelline Colour Sensation Elixir in Blush Essence.

Initially, i was eyeing up some of the more darker shades but in the end i went with Blush Essence as i knew i would get a lot of use out of it because although i love darker tones and bolder lips i wear pink shades the most. Blush Essence is a lovely rose pink shade which has a very subtle lilac undertone to it - it's such a beautiful colour!

I'm a big fan of the formula of these lip products because they have a creamy texture but it doesn't feel tacky or heavy to wear, they apply so easy and have a slight stain effect too. For a liquid lipstick style formula the staying power is pretty good, i find it lasts on my lips quite a while and only requires a top up after a few hours.

They have a really pleasant scent to them, I've read some people describe it as vanilla but i think it leans more towards something a bit floral but it's a lovely scent either way. I also really like the packaging of these, it's quite sleek yet simple and  it has a doufat applicator which makes it really easy to apply.

Blush Essence is the perfect all round shade; it's adds a lovely pop of colour to any make up look and it's one of those colours you can wear day or night. I've worn this so much already and i know it's going to remain a firm favourite throughout Spring and Summer too, because its the perfect colour and formula. I'm really impressed with the Maybelline Colour Sensation Elixirs and I'm really happy that i picked up this shade as i just love it but I'm definitely want to try some of the others.

What lip product have you been loving lately?
