Exciting news! 🙂
blabberbeauty is participating in a University of Malta project regarding Social Media Strategies. The team leading project ‘MaxBeauty‘ is collaborating exclusively with drugstore brand, Max Factor, to assess Social Media efforts. This will be done through blabberbeauty, therefore, this section of the website will be dedicated solely to this project. Stay tuned for brand reviews, tutorials and competitions!
Let’s kick off the project by talking about my latest lip discovery (and you all know how much I love lipsticks), the Max Factor Lipfinity Lip Colour in Glistening (102).
On the packaging of this duo product, it is stated that it is long-lasting, lasting even up to 24 hours! I never really tried long-lasting lip products mainly because I never thought the products would live up to their claims. Also, for the past year I had on and off dry lips so I always opted for moisturising lipsticks rather than longevity.
First of all, this product is really a duo product as there are two steps for a long-lasting application. First the lipstick itself needs to be applied – it’s more of a liquid lipstick, consistency-wise. The colour is really pigmented and dries super quick. That being said, it’s also easy to apply and actually applies really smooth. Additionally, the colour you see in the packaging, is what it will look like once it’s on the lips!
After the first step is applied, you will have to wait around 30 seconds to continue to the second step. By then, the lipstick would have already gone tacky and probably dried. At this point, you will just need to go over your lips with a coat of the second applicator, which is a waxy product that seals everything in place and gives your lips that extra shine! 🙂 Throughout the day you would then only need to re-apply the second applicator and you’re good to go.
One thing to make sure when applying the product in general, is to have ‘dry’, clean lips – make sure no oil or product is on your lips before applying any of the Lipfinity range as the product won’t hold otherwise. Another thing to mention is that I have not tried this with any lip liner under it as I was told that it doesn’t really need one, which I have to agree.
After testing out the product a couple of times, I can definitely say that this one’s a keeper! It lasts all day! I’ve eaten and drank in it and it wouldn’t budge – especially if you re-apply from time to time, which I didn’t because I’m forgetful and lazy 😈
Needless to say, I will be definitely expanding my Lipfinity collection…I don’t know how I’ve been without them for so long!!
