I’ve been on a lip product kick lately. It started out with a couple of Maybelline ColorSensational Color Elixirs and now I’m up to 12 in these last few weeks. The lovely Aprill Coleman at Glitter Gloss Garbage reviewed them a few months ago and when I saw them in my store I snatched them up and just couldn’t stop. I think I kept buying them to see if the next gloss was as good, pretty, pigmented, etc as the last one. I found out in some cases yes and in some cases no.
There’s also the #nobarelips30 challenge created by Keiko Kavari. The challenge gave me a reason to buy stuff and the fact they were drugstore products lulled me into thinking it wasn’t that bad. Some of them were even buy 1 get 1 50% off. Who doesn’t love a deal, right? Why would I pass that up? *straight face* Judgeth me not.
In any case, my kinda sorta hoarding tendencies loss is your gain.
These Maybelline Color Elixirs retail for $8.99, but I was in Walgreens recently(read: yesterday lol) and they’re having a buy 1 get 1 50% sale on them until December 7. These glosses go on really easily and it’s a wand instead of a brush, which I like. They’re not goopy or sticky. And while pigmented don’t stain.
Mandarin Rapture – a sheer red orange with tiny sparkles
Vision In Violet – an opaque lavender shade
Fuchsia Flourish – an opaque bubblegum-like pink
The Maybelline ColorSensational Color Elixirs can be purchased at Wal-Mart, Walgreens, CVS, and drugstore.com
I went to an 80’s party Saturday night and had a really good time. For future reference, if you’re going to require people to wear costumes for an event and it’s not Halloween, do it at someone’s house. There’s nothing like being among people you don’t know dressed ridiculously and in a public place. It can make you terribly self-conscious and detract from an otherwise good time.
Urban Decay posted this video on their facebook page a couple of days ago.
So the rumors are true. There are no confirmed release dates yet. I’m willing to bet it will be after the new year, but who knows. We all know that Urban Decay makes great eyeshadows so I’m sure this palette will be just as good as the others. However, I’m still lukewarm on it.
