I went to my favorite place which is CVS and saw these beauties gazing at me as soon as I walked in. They were calling my name so I had to grab a few :))At first glance and looking at the model picture on the display, I was wondering would they compare to the Maybelline Limited Edition lippies I did a YouTube video on a few weeks back. They sorta do, but the formulas are definitely different. The newer lippies are high gloss with a applicator brush, while the Fall 2013 Color Sensational lippies are lipsticks. They also are not as glossy. I also did swatches above so you can compare these new lippies to the Maybelline Limited Edition Fall 2013 Color Sensational Lipsticks.
The Color Elixir by Color Sensational lippies retail for $8.99 each and are so worth it. I haven't worn them out so I do not know how long the lasting power is but the colors are so vivid, I would recommend that you ladies grab a few. Actually grab as many as you can.

PROS: The colors are pigmented, bold, and rich. 

CON(S): None of the colors applied streaky other than Caviar Couture. I was unhappy with this color and will be returning or exchanging for another :(

MY FAVORITE: Vision in Violet. It's the perfect purple gloss cream lippy!
