Maybelline Rebellious Raspberry (110) Color Elixir Lip Color
Maybelline Rebellious Raspberry (110) Color Elixir Lip Color

Maybelline Rebellious Raspberry (110) Color Elixir Lip Color ($8.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a vibrant, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had rich, nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. The texture is thicker, mostly non-sticky, and was nicely hydrating while worn. On me, it wore well for four and a half hours. It does have a strong perfume-y scent and soap-like taste. Revlon HD Strawberry Topaz (535) (P, $8.99) is warmer. Dior Magique (479) (P, $35.00) is lighter. MAC Drawn in Chic (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (P, $28.00) is lighter, warmer. Giorgio Armani #519 (P, $29.00) is darker, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Maybelline Citrus Evolution (115) Color Elixir Lip Color ($8.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-orange with warm, yellow undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but the color settled into lip lines from the get-go and only worsened as it wore. On me, it lasted for three hours and was moisturizing while worn. Chanel Exotique (12) (P, $34.00) is darker. Chanel Sensuel (11) (P, $34.00) is lighter. MAC Grand Pumpkin (LE, $15.00) is darker. NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is darker. MAC Live It Up (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Ray of Sunshine (P, $22.00) is lighter. MAC Overspiced (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Maybelline Passionate Peony (120) Color Elixir Lip Color ($8.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a light pink with subtle neutral-to-warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. When swatched and worn, it looked nothing like it did in the tube. It is slightly thick with a lot of milkiness, which made it pool into lip lines very noticeably. It had semi-opaque coverage, but it’s a gloss that would be better applied over a lip liner or lipstick to minimize it filling up lip lines. It lasted for three hours and was hydrating while worn. MAC Lots of Laughs (LE, $15.00) is darker. NARS Turkish Delight (P, $26.00) is darker. Maybelline Petal Plush (100) (P, $8.99) is darker, more shimmery. MAC Picture Pink (LE, $15.00) is darker.

Raspberry looks pretty, but I have Revlon Ultra HD Gloss in Strawberry Topaz already, and that one has better pigment and formula. Citrus and Peony look like total disasters – I can see every lip line. These 2 need to be recalled.

I have these in a couple of shades and they’ve all been pretty amazing! Fuschia Flourish is amazing. It looks like the Raspberry one has the same coverage & texture. Glad to see it get an A:)

I forget the names of the other ones that I have but they’re all like the Raspberry one! I think some of the newer ones like the other two here are duds tho:(

Holy cow! I was going to get HD ST but if this is slightly less warm, than this will be my choice. I wanted a vibrant pink coral for spring, preferably from the drugstore in case it didn’t work.

Im so confused by passionate peony, i almost feel like you labeled the pictures wrong? The pics of it n the tube/ in the tub with the applicator off vs the swatches i dont see how that could possibly be the same product

Hey Jessica,

Did you check the review? I mentioned that and also stated that I confirmed/double-checked.

Rebel raspberry looks nice! I will surely be looking for that one. I appreciate you including lower cost items in your reviews. 🙂

Wow- I am really impressed by these. It can be hard to find a really great drugstore lip product, but these are impressive! I think I’d like to try the raspberry one!

Wow, the last two colors look nothing like the product in the container once applied. My lips are wrinkly, so those are a no-go for me. Thanks for the review!

I love the formula for the maybelline colour elixirs so I have high hopes for these. I am actually loving all three tones as they are warm based and right up my alley

I LOVE that Raspberry color and will definitely be picking it up. I don’t know what happened with Peony. You’re right that looks absolutely nothing like it does in the tube. I am not a fan of the milky pink color.

It’s crazy how different it looks! I can only imagine how many people will buy it from the way it looks in the tube and go, “WHAT!”

Rebellious Raspberry is super pretty! I really like the formula of these – its a little thick but I find it very comfortable, hydrating and it stays quite well too. The shades launched in Asia have a different nomenclature though.

I always wonder why they change the names! I would get it if maybe the names were scandalous… maybe… but Citrus Evolution is no good elsewhere?

I absolutely NEED Rebellious Raspberry…I really hope I can find this collection, I haven’t seen it anywhere yet!

Passionate Peony would be a great color if it came out like it is in the container. And were more opaque than the swatch, with a better rating.

I actually really like the sheer finish of citrus evolution. It seems really pretty for a sheer summery shade. Maybe I’m just weird?

I love this formula, it’s one of my favorite drug store lipglosses by far. I am wondering if you got an off tube of the Peony, though; I picked it up recently and the color on me is exactly as pictured in the tube — a beautiful spring pink, not even a hint of pastel or what your swatches look like! Such a huge difference, but the one I have is gorgeous!
