Maybelline Color Sensational Elixir in Nude Illusion

Back in December when I took a trip to New York, make up shopping was a daily occurrence and something that I picked up which I must admit I didn't think I would love, was this Maybelline Color Sensational Elixir in Nude Illusion. 

Having become a handbag essential for me, it goes without saying that I'm really surprised at how much I do love this product. The perfect subtle Nude shade carrying ever such a Peachy tone, it has become my go to to add a little something to my lips without overdoing it. 

I must admit, I had hoped it would be more of a lip stain in terms of pigmentation and formula, but it's definitely more of a gloss, which is incredibly wearable for any occasion on its own or on top of a lipstick. 

Super moisturising and creamy on the lips, Maybelline Color Sensational Elixirs are unfortunately only available to buy in the US in Ulta, Target and Walgreens at the moment, where they cost around the $8-$9 mark, although I have a sneaky suspicion that they will be landing in the UK soon!

Have you tried any of the gorgeous twenty shades available? Will these be on your shopping list when they hit the UK?



  1. I love that shade on you! I bought this in "signature scarlet" and didn't love it, but this color is a lot more wearable!

  2. I own Petal Plush and actually included it in a post today. I agree that they're advertised as more lacquer/stains but are definitely more gloss like upon application!

  3. This shade is really lovely and looks so great on you!

  4. This looks beautiful on you! The perfect nude! xxx

  5. Perfect! The shade looks like the contouring lip gloss I'm using. The specific color is Tender Beige that stimulates collagen production on the lips.

  6. I own a couple of these and love them, the pigment is great, and I love the high gloss shine

  7. this is perfect for everyday makeup :)

  8. I got sent a couple of these, and i think this was the one that didn't work for me.. it was a bit too brown for me, but it looks gorgeous on you! x
