Maybelline Radiant Ruby (530) is a very cool-toned, light red with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipgloss that retails for $8.99 and contains 0.17 oz.
Maybelline Radiant Ruby (530) Color Elixir Iridescent Lipgloss ($8.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a muted, pinky-red with cool, blue undertones and a glossy shine. This one didn't seem to have shimmer to it, so I'm not sure how it's part of Iridescent range (where's the pearl?!). It settled into every lip line on me (some of the worst I've seen) and made all the lip lines look fuchsia-ish and really stand out. It had semi-sheer coverage overall. On me, this shade wore well for four hours. MAC Glam (LE, $15.00) is brighter, more opaque. MAC Love Alert (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery. Le Metier de Beaute Hibiskiss (LE, $32.00) is darker.

Maybelline Color Elixir Iridescent is the first lip lacquer with intense liquid lip color and brilliant iridescent shine. Micro pearls give a creamy balm feel. Now get the color impact of a lipstick with the shine and comfort of a lip gloss in one sweep.
