I'm so glad I got a sample of Devious in a previous order, because I never would've ordered it without one, and considering how in love with it I am that would've been tragic! It's the perfect sheer brownish plummy maroon color. The sparkle in the tube scared me off because I hate glitter/shimmer in my lip products, but I don't know what sort of sorcery they use over at The Elixery because they somehow don't show up on my lips but still add dimension. It's magic. If this color is ever discontinued, I will be buying a dozen and locking them in a safe.
Don't be scared of the dark stick - Devious is not a dark color at all! Actually, Devious is a sheer, barely-there lipstick color that was designed to bring out the vibrancy of your natural lip tone. One quick swipe on the lips and you'll look better - but nobody will be able to figure out why. Shhhh! It's our little secret. We refer to this shade as "Your Lips, But Better" (or YLBB for short) - and that's because it looks like a blushier, more youthful and sexier version of you. It looks like you've just bitten your lip. You scamp. Want to try lipstick but aren't sure you're ready for a bold lip? Need something for every day that keeps your lips moisturized and supple, while adding a bit of natural color? This cult-favorite is your new best friend. Lightly vanilla scented.
COLOR: Very sheer, raisin/plum lip tone (YLBB)
Elixery lipstick is free of animal testing (cruelty free) and free of animal-derived ingredients (vegan).
I received this color as a sample. I loved it! The color is fabulous for fall.
This is one of the few lip colors I've used all the way down and then bought again (and I'm a fan of lip colors and buy and use several throughout the year). I have dark skin and eyes, and it looks so natural and beautiful. Totally YLBB! The texture is so smooth and emollient, as well.
Love, Love, Love this color. I ordered Justice and received Devious as a sample. It is like this color was made for me! It looks awesome with my skin tone which is very fair since I am a redhead. The texture of the lipstick is amazing. This and Justice will be one of only a few lipsticks that I use all the way up! Thanks Elixery!
I liked the first lipstick so much I decided to order another color! It helped in my decision that Elixery sent me a sample with my order;}
very soft, subtle, perfect for everyday in the office
Great color, not too dark - perfect for my skin coloring. Love how it feels on my lips - very moist. Thanks for making a wonderful product.
Devious is a lovely lipstick, and on me is a sheer red with a touch of brown that is very wearable. It has subtle hints of gold that give it warmth and light. I would wear it in any setting with any style of clothing. It also feels wonderful on the lips. I love The Elixery's products!
I love this color. It's my everyday go to lipstick. One for my purse, one for the vanity and one for work. It's moisturizing feels great on. Just wish it lasted longer.
I prefer sheer/semi-sheer lipsticks to full-color ones, and in my search for the perfect cruelty-free lipstick I've tried a LOT of brands. This was perfect - great amount of color, great texture and staying power, lovely scent - super impressed. I can't imagine finding a better lipstick - so glad I tried the Elixery for the first time! Great company and great product!
