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 🙂

Top 5 Lipsticks for Summer

lipstick-loop

Summer has finally started so I thought that’s it’s only fit to kickstart the season by sharing my top 5 Summer lippies.

Rimmel London New Moisture Renew Lipstick in In Love with Ginger – €8.44

I’ve been on the hunt for a beautiful orange-red lipstick for ages, and this Rimmel lipstick just fits that category perfectly. Smooth and creamy, this lipstick is one that suits most skin tones. Love it!

Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Amped – €5.99

Talk about a statement lip! This beauty is one of the most pigmented, matte yet, not drying lip product I own. I must admit – not my go-to colour, but I do try to push myself sometimes. I wear it mostly when I don’t feel like playing around with eye-make up, but still want to look put together. If you’re feeling adventurous, give this one a go.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Amethyst Shimmer – €6.49

For those who aren’t crazy over a super bold lip, I suggest you try this. I was drawn to this colour simply because I was venturing into more purple-based lipsticks. What I like most about this lipstick is that you can really build up the colour intensity, so that way you’re able to see what looks best on you.

e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Colour in True Red – €4.86

You might recognise this product from previous posts, and because I love it so much, it’s worth another mention. This product is matte, yet creamy and simply gorgeous. Apart from being super-pigmented, it’s wears for quite a long which I really like. And it’s only €4.86!!

Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Macaroon – €6.61

Even though bold lips look beautiful in Summer, it’s good to take a break for those bright colours and go with something more natural. This lip butter applies beautifully and is great for on the go as you can get away with applying it without a mirror. Apart from that, it is very moisturising and gives your lips an effortless tint for Summer.
