Review: Max Factor Colour Elixir Gloss

It’s safe to say that one can never have too many lip products. Therefore, without further ado, here is my latest lip product discovery!

I am a lipstick kind of girl, so I normally dismiss lipgloss altogether. However, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try out the Max Factor Colour Elixir in Polished Fuchsia (60). Surprisingly, I don’t regret it!

The reddish-pink colour glides smoothly over the lips, for a gorgeous pop of colour. The product is infused with shine enhancers and smoothing oil, creating a conditioning formula that leaves your lips feel soft and moisturised with a high-gloss finish. Definitely gives you that “It’s my time to shine” feel – if you know what I mean!


I must admit, the lipgloss looks appealing just by the looks of the packaging. Apart from the packaging being stylish, it’s also quite light, making it easy to carry around when on the go. The lipgloss has a subtle scent to it that compliments the feel and application of the product. One thing I really like about this product is that it just glosses over any dry lines leaving you with a soft feel, rather than a patchy job.


This product is perfect for people who just want a hint of colour on their lips, while keeping them plump and moisturised.  The colour is natural looking and complimenting most peoples’ skin tone, giving off a “better than your lips” kind of shade. Mainly because it is a lipgloss, it does need to be re-applied or re-touched after eating and drinking, however it lasts up to 2-3 hours otherwise. I also tried it over lipsticks, giving them more depth yet a nice refreshing slight change in colour.

Which is your favourite lipgloss? Feel free to share your thoughts and comments down below 🙂

Until next time,
