Today, I’m wearing the new Maybelline color elixir in “fuchsia flourish” although this picture doesn’t really do it justice. I put it on “normally” with the wand, and did not smear it to take away the gloss or “thickness” and really loved the look. It was very bright and colorful, but I felt comfortable with it. I put it on at 10:30 for this picture, and still by 1:30 I had color on my lips, and it was only just around that time I started to feel like I needed more moisture on them (usually I’m applying something every hour or so). Basically I’m a big fan.
Here’s a look I posted on Instagram today in my closet (literally :)) to try and show the contrast of fuchsia with gray – I took this picture a few days ago, and I did smear the color so it wasn’t SOO bright:
Oh, and I got a haircut yesterday, love it so much!!!
Have a great weekend:
Maybelline sent me samples and I am being compensated by Refinery29 for my review of the the Color Elixir samples I received. Of course my opinion has not been influenced by this in any way; I really like this product. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t wear it, and I certainly wouldn’t recommend it to you guys…
Grechen, great haircut! It’s chic and flattering. That JP tunic is on my list. I also noticed, that you’re already wearing your new Vince sneakers a lot. They’re very versatile.
The JP tunic IS perfect! I love the cut, and the close-up pic of you is adorable! Your skin looks perfect (If it’s Photoshop, just don’t tell me. I love to believe that we can find our perfect skincare and makeup and we can ALL look this good in a close-up!). 😉
I would have pegged you for a matte lip kinda girl:).

i am, in theory, but i haven’t found one yet that doesn’t make me want to claw my lips off because they feel so dry…that’s generally why i don’t wear very bright or “noticeable” colors, because i can’t stand much on my lips besides a good, moisturizing balm.
Grechen Reiter says
no!!! it’s not photoshop!!! it’s the lighting. or something. i don’t feel like i look like that “in person” either, but i didn’t do anything to the photo, i promise. i never do! maybe an instagram filter sometimes, but not with this one.
