The Colour Elixir lipsticks are designed to be a lip treatment as well as a lip colour. The 'Elixir' treatment makes up 60% of the lipsticks and includes ingredients such as shea, avocado and aloe butters, as well as anti-oxidant white tea. Having worn these lip colours consistently for a week, I noticed that my lips definitely felt soft and hydrated. I was especially impressed that the comfortable formula was consistent across the colours. It's rare to find a drugstore red or bright coral that is long-lasting, pigmented AND non-drying.
All seven of the colours I tried were very pigmented. I had wondered if they might be a little sheer with all of the moisturising ingredients. The colours have good wear time too. One thing I did notice is that all of the colours left a stain on my lips and in the case English Rose, the stain was actually a little darker than the lipstick. The finishes of the lipsticks vary across the range; most had a satin with a couple of frosty finishes and micro-shimmer thrown in for good measure. There are 15 shades altogether and having looked at the stand the other day, I spotted a couple of very appealing rosy brown colours.
If you are a fan of lipsticks, I would highly recommend taking a look at the Colour Elixir range. Priced £7.99 (or £5.99 in Superdrug at the moment), they have the feel and pigmentation of more expensive lipsticks. I think they've covered all the bases with the colours too.
