Maybe you’ve already seen these Maybelline Color Elixir gems, but if you haven’t you can follow along with the cult magic that is this brilliant packaging, which looks like a lipstick BUT

                

… is actually a super lustrous, creamy lip gloss. As a product development person I love the fact that the packaging really tells the story of the product: here is a thing that looks like a lipstick, with the heavier color payoff you’d expect, but it’s really a gloss.

                

These shades have the two qualities I look for in a man lip color: rich and forgiving … (from left: Signature Scarlet, Amethyst Potion, Hibiscus Haven) …

                

… and they have a pointed applicator which I LOVE because when you’re applying a more pigmented gloss, you really have to do a nice outline first. They’re very buildable too - I played with Scarlet to go from sheer red to blood-curdling, totally normal, some vampires sent me this grill, what can I tell you … but we digress. Get some!

Does This: Super plush, rich gloss colors in the coolest packaging
Is This: Maybelline Color Elixir
Get This: Above, or at your local drugstore, Target, Wal-mart etc!
Price: ~$8.99
