Nothing beats a strong red lip when the days get cooler. Refinery29 recently sent me three shades of Maybelline Color Elixir to try, which included the rich red hue pictured, as well as a plum and a hot pink. Over the course of this past week, I’ve gotten a chance to try all three of the shades and was pleasantly surprised to find they all suited my skin tone nicely and faded evenly like lip stains when I didn’t reapply. It’s rare to find a highly-pigmented gloss that meets this criteria, especially in very affordable drug store form, so suffice to say I’m a fan.
