Come winter, the first thing that usually changes--even before our wardrobes--is our makeup routine. Dusting on a little bronzer, mascara and chapstick will no longer suffice when our skin loses it's beachy glow, so we're always open to trying out new products to restore some life to our look. That's why we were super stoked when Refinery29 sent us free samples of Maybelline's new line of Color Elixir lipcolors to test out and review for you guys. One can never go wrong with a bright lip, and these glosses were definitely bold!
What we love most is that the pigment is super-saturated both on and off your lips, and the consistency of the product isn't sticky like most glosses, but actually really smooth and moisturizing. The most standout thing had to be their staying power though. Even after you wipe them off, they leave an awesome stain behind, ensuring that even after a meal or drink your lips will never be left feeling nude. Also, apparently there are 20 different shades in the line. Yes, you heard us right. 20! And at under $9 a pop, they're definitely worth checking out for yourself.
