Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color,Nude Illusion ~ Review,Swatch & Picture

Hello girls...Today I'm reviewing Maybelline color elixir lip color,Nude Illusion These color elixir are available in 20 shades. The color range is good, the texture and formula is amazing. I heard Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color are not a gloss but a liquid lipstick but I disagree. In my opinion they are just a pigmented gloss. 



Packaging...
It comes in a transparent thick plastic glass packaging with a silver cap on top. The shade is clearly visible from the tube.

Nude illusion 060($8.99 for 0.17 fl. oz) is a soft peachy beige shade  with warm undertone and color coverage is semi opaque. It glides on smoothly. It lightly scented which doesn't bother much.





Applicator...
The applicator is feathery,cushiony and super soft, it picks up perfect amount of product. The leaf shaped applicator is flexible, you can use the tapered point to line the lips and flat side(middle part) can be use to fill the lips.

Texture and formula...
The texture of Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color,Nude Illusion is like a liquid lip balm. Texture is creamy which leaves the lips soft and hydrating.

The formula isn't completely weightless,it is a bit heavy on lips. Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color,Nude Illusion has smooth and even finish. The first application is little disappointing as the "Nude Illusion" is very sheer but it looks incredible in couple of layers. I like the natural shine of this shade. It is pretty pigmented shade.
