Hello IMBB Readers!
Today I’m going to review Max Factor Xperience Sheer Gloss Balm in Amber. During the blogging course I fell in love with Vidhi’s lips *powder* they looked just perfect! Healthy & well moisturized with a beautiful pink glow. I could not resist asking which lip color she uses and to my surprise it was a Maybelline’s tinted lip balm, neither a lipstick nor a gloss! *woot* I couldn’t believe that a tinted lip balm can look so good. My Maybelline Baby Lips in Mango Pie had got over, and was out of stock at the counter and hence I thought of going for a tinted lip balm. I noticed MaxFactor also has tinted lip balms so, bought two of them in different shades.
Price: INR 550 for 8gm

My Experience with Max Factor Xperience Sheer Gloss Balm in Amber:
It has been more than two months since I am using this lip balm and I am in love with this. Max Factor Xperience Sheer Gloss Balm in Amber is deep orange in color with fine golden shimmer particles and reminds me of an orange bar *drool* It has a very typical fragrance like Lakme lipsticks that I do not like. The bullet is flat 7 angled at the top. It gives a beautiful orange tint to my lips with shine of a gloss and doesn’t look shimmery. It stays on for less than 2 hours. The best part is it ain’t sticky like a gloss. It hydrates very well with SPF 10 and is not at all waxy. I have to swipe it 4-5 times to make the tint visible.
Max Factor Xperience Sheer Gloss Balm in Amber reminds me of L’oreal Paris Color Riche Nutri Shine lipsticks in texture, it’s just that these have spf and are less pigmented than the latter.
Pros of Max Factor Xperience Sheer Gloss Balm in Amber:
• Doesn’t have a waxy texture.
• Gives shine of a gloss without any stickiness.
• Imparts beautiful sheer orange color to lips.
• Has spf 10.
• Doesn’t look shimmery.
• Hydrates well.
• Sturdy & hygienic packaging.
• Easy to apply.
• Available in around 5-6 shades.
Cons of Max Factor Xperience Sheer Gloss Balm in Amber:
• Fragrance could have been fruity.
• May not be effective on chapped lips.
