Hi guys!

First and foremost, I love love love this packaging. I love that the product is hanging inside in the bottle and even better in a lipstick form! It makes it look very high end.

Secondly the product claims to have the intensity of lipstick, the moisture of a lip balm and the shine of a lipgloss.

So far I have to say I agree with 2 out of 3 claims. It is definitely moisturizing and has a great shine… however I’m not sure I’m sold on the pigmentation of the elixir. I will insert swatches below for you to see that it comes off quite sheer with a hint of colour.

There are 10 shades in the range; and I bought Caramel Infused, Blush Essence and Raspberry Rhapsody as I thought these would suit me the most.

If you want a light splash of colour like with a natural look these are perfect. Also they will look amazing over lipstick to add a glossy finish.

The colour elixirs retail for £6.99 each and can be found here.

Have you tried any of the shades? What’s your opinion on these?

Until next time…
