Maybelline Lip Polish Liquid Colour Balm also known as Maybelline Color Elixir Liquid Color Balm for those in the USA is the first ever liquid colour balm from Maybelline New York. It is safe to say that this product is a triple threat; you get benefits of a balm, lipstick and gloss all in this one stellar product. No need to layer three separate products on your lips coz’ Maybelline Lip Polish Liquid Color Balm gives you the perfect smooth, glossy, shiny pout in just one product.

I couldn’t wait to try this product so went ahead and got myself the Maybelline Lip Polish Liquid Colour Balm in the shade glam12. Oh!! We have numbers here to distinguish the shades unlike the catchy names the US version has. Glam12 is a lovely shade indeed it’s a pretty red and maroon(y) combination it’s not too overpowering red or maroon, just the perfect blend of both shades.  It is a shade perfect to wear on your Valentines’ Day Date night/day out.

Well, I totally love this product firstly because you don’t get that sticky feeling on your lips that certain glosses tend to leave on your lips and secondly, it’s a three in one product. I have been using it daily and quite frankly liking it a lot. I don’t feel as if I have a ton of product on my lips. Maybelline Lip Polish Liquid Colour Balm has a smooth consistency and the product glides on your lips like a dream. They have a leaf shaped applicator which makes it even easier to handle the wand and the product applies perfectly and evenly. You can build up the product as per your liking. At least I didn’t find any kind of fragrance in this product so not at all repulsive smell wise.  

When I am applying this product I tend to skip lip balm as this product has it inbuilt and it’s very moisturising too, fills in the fine lines and does not settle into creases. My lips get an amazing definition giving them the perfect smooth finish of a lipstick, glassy gloss shine of a gloss and the liquid balm keeps them moisturised.  
The packaging of the product is very nice and catchy; the bottom part of the lip polish is in the shape of a lipstick. It is very handy and easy to carry too.

The only flipside of Maybelline Lip Polish is that it transfers like nobody’s business. The staying power is decent, touch-ups required due to its transferring ability; the SA claimed 6hrs; well it fades gradually leaving a slight stain like effect on your lips. I sometimes apply a lip liner first and then apply this product so it does on bleed.

To sum it up a great product and I am pretty happy with it. It’s good for someone who doesn’t like layering too many products on their lips. I will indeed purchase some nude and peachy shades perfect for every day wear. Priced at INR 450 for 5ml, is pretty good bargain and they are available in 15 spellbinding shades to match your every mood.
