Maybelline Color Elixir #MyLipMagic

When checking out makeup, nothing excites me more than trying out new lip colors. Thanks to Maybelline and Refinery 29, last weekend I took three shades from Maybelline’s new Color Elixir by Color Sensational for a spin — Signature Scarlet, Fuchsia Flourish and Raspberry Rhapsody. My three essentials for a good lipstick or gloss? Lasting power, that feel-good hydrating sensation and pigmentation. Sure, Color Elixir performs well in these areas, but the real game changer here? The wedge-shaped applicator. Anything that helps to ease application scores points in my book. I was able to swipe on the gloss with one easy stroke (before applying that finishing touch layer) — even to my bottom lip line which I always have the most trouble applying evenly on both sides.

versace bright crystal, loccitane body lotion, dior lip maximizer

A good amount of women say they never leave home without wearing mascara. But since my eyelashes can barely hold a curl let alone mascara, I never wear it. Instead, rarely do I leave home without wearing these beauty essentials.

Versace Bright Crystal ($67): Sweet and fresh but not too overpowering, this has been my go-to scent for the past few years. Also scores bonus points for the lovely bottle.

Dior Lip Maximizer ($30): Truthfully, I don’t wear this every day (and night) because it makes my lips look fuller; I wear it because it is ULTRA hydrating and my lips have never felt softer. Plus, I love the tingling sensation when you first apply it.

L’Occitane Shea Butter Body Lotion ($30): I don’t really swear on anything, but I will swear on L’Occitane-anything. Hypothetically speaking, this would be the Superman of lotions because it does wonders. Worth every penny, apply this after you get out of the shower — your skin will thank you!
