Maybelline Colour Elixir 020 Signature Scarlet Review & Swatches


Maybelline Colour Elixir Signature Scarlet

Maybelline launched Lip Polish last year in India and offered some 7 – 8 shades however in USA they had some 20 shades and are addressed as Colour elixir. I managed to pick Signature Scarlet from ULTA online and it came sometime late last year. I’m so in love with the shade but formula is little tacky and hence I just settled for one.

Gorgeous Himani have already shared one more shade long back - BREATHTAKING APRICOT from same range.

My experience with Maybelline Colour Elixir Signature Scarlet:

Shade – Signature Scarlet is warm toned Orange Red shade with no shimmer or glitter but just a shiny sheen , I love the colour and the brightness it gives. The colour will work on all skin tones and is easy to wear without many efforts.

Texture and Saying power – The texture is very comfortable at first and feels non sticky but then after a while it gets little tacky still not something which would irritate me. I like glosses so that is not a big con for me as am used to all the tackiness involved in glosses. I get some 4 hours of wear with this shade and then it leaves behind a slight tint on lips leaving my lips feel soft and moisturized.

Pigmentation – It is absolutely opaque in one swipe and stays nicely without settling into fine lines but well exfoliated lips are must for all the glosses and it applies the same here.

Packaging – The “MADE IN USA” gloss comes in long rectangular tube with slat tip applicator which gives easy and even application.

What I like about Maybelline Colour Elixir 020 Signature Scarlet:

  • The shade is very flattering.
  • The texture is almost non sticky.
  • The faint fruity smell is refreshing.
  • They don’t settle in fine lines if lips are well exfoliated.
  • The staying power for a gloss is good.
  • The pigmentation is great.

What I don’t like about Maybelline Colour Elixir 020 Signature Scarlet:

  • They didn’t launch the same product here in India.
  • If your lips are not well exfoliated it may appear streaky.

Ratings – 4/5

Recommendations – If you can find this shade then do try it out, it is very flattering colour and the price tag is also good. I would have loved to pick more but the reviews are not consistent for all the shades hence skipped the idea.
