As a makeup artist I am always asked 100 questions a day about different brands, products that I like or don’t like. Sometimes friends get freebies and throw me a few samples from different places.
This sometime was the freebie of a Maybelline “The elixir” lip gloss.
my quick review: Gross.
My long review: Gross… before I even put it on my lips I could smell the parfume that is in this product. The smell wafted from the lid akin to me being rushed through at least 100 nursing homes at the speed of light… or in this case scent.
Now there are very few times that I think makeup smells gross. I usually like the smells or they are pretty-scentless.
The brush is on a angle that works well for bottom lips but pokes you in the top.
For the few moments that I could stand it being on my hand as a test: its staying power isn’t great.
I would say don’t waste your money on this product it’s a fail.
I hate when makeup had a strong fragrance, especially lip products
