BFF’s chosen shade is Celestial Coral 010, which to our eyes, is a lovely rose rather than coral. As with Signature Scarlet, Celestial Coral appears overly-bright on the wand and settles to a beautiful pinky-rose upon application. If you're more of a pink or rose person than a red person, or if you're uncomfortable wearing red for a daytime event, this might be your color.
On the plus side, I did save space in my makeup bag by carrying Lip Elixir plus my favorite Smashbox lip liner instead of lipstick, liner, and gloss.
*Update December 17, 2013: The Color Elixir commercials that recently began running in my television market refer to this product as Lip Lacquer. I've updated the title of this post to reflect that. Thank you, Maybelline ad execs!
