I thought I’d give my favourite lippie a shout out today. I am a lipstick hoarder. I love lippies. The brighter, the better, especially if it is summer. The product I am going to talk about is the
Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick
Let’s start with what others say……….
This lipstick according to amazon,
Actively moisturises for smoother, full lips (vs bare lips)
Rich colour lipstick infused with moisture
Works overtime for smoother-looking lips in 7 days
A blend of 60 percent emollients, conditioners and antioxidants including vitamin E
Colour Elixir Lipstick gives you smooth, soft lips with gorgeous colour.
According to the Max Factor UK website,
Achieve smoother, fuller-looking lips with Colour Elixir Lipstick. The conditioning formula glides on effortlessly for soft, moisturised lips while delivering vibrant lip colour in an instant. – 16 intense shades – Super-conditioning ingredients: vitamin E, shea, avocado and aloe butters – Smoother, fuller-looking lips
How to Apply: Step 1: For extra fullness, etch around the lip line and cupid’s bow with Colour Elixir Lip Liner before applying lipstick.
Step 2: Veil lips in your shade of Colour Elixir Lipstick.
Step 3: Blot with a tissue then reapply to intensify your shade.
So let’s see what I think about it.
Does it make the lips softer? Smoother? Juicier (dare I say).
Yup. Yup and yup. So nice and creamy. Light weight. Like a balm but not as balmy if that makes sense. It conditions your lips.
Is it easy to apply?
Yes. If it gets a bit smudged, you do not have to take hours to take it off (this applies to darker shades.
Vibrant lip colour?
Cannot talk about all the shades, but the ones I have (bewitchening coral and pink brandy) are bright and very pigmented. Not patchy.
Does it make lips look fuller?
Dunno….. They do look nicer and healthier.
Have you blotted your lips with tissue paper?
Nope. On the list though!
Now my own rambles
I would compare this to my other fave lippie… Clinique Pop.
I would not call it a long lasting lippie.
Not matte, but not glossy either. Somewhere in the middle.
Price is affordable especially when you can get the 3 for 2 offer.
