Maxfactor Color Elixir Lipstick in Chilli

Hi everyone,

Today, I am back with a pretty lipstick from Maxfactor. I have not tried these lipsticks before, really excited these days and wearing them often. I love to shop for neutral shades but this time bought all bright and bold lip colors. Read on to know more.

Packaging

The lipsticks Maxfactor Color Elixir Lipstick come in a glossy gold body. The packaging is really good. The lipstick case comes with the colour of the lipstick demarked at the bottom. They also have the name and the code number of the shade printed at the bottom. The cap clicks tight and makes it very travel friendly. Overall, the golden colour makes it very classy and stylish.

Color

The color is a pretty bold red with hint of orange undertones. It will suit fair to medium, dusky and also very deep skin tones. The lipstick is really bright and adds an instant brightness to my face even without any makeup. I just loved the color, it is bright and nice for occasions.‘Chilli’ has very fine golden shimmer which is really not noticeable on the lips but does help in adding a gorgeous sheen to the lips.

Texture

The lipstick has a very soft and creamy texture. It glides effortlessly on the lips because of the creamy texture you can easily skip a lip balm prior to application of this lipstick. The formula of the lipstick doesn’t settle into fine lines or accentuates dryness on my lips. I really felt it very light on lips. As the lipstick has very fine shimmer, it does set into a bit of frosty finish on the lips. These lipsticks have a very faint vanilla fragrance, which fades slowly on application. I do feel some sensitive noses might have a problem with it.

Pigmentation

This lipstick is decently pigmented, a single swipe of color gives a diffused red color and you can easily build up the color intensity. When I apply and layer it twice or thrice all my lip pigmentation is easily covered. I am happy the lipstick is not very intensely pigmented as I find it quite difficult to apply it for casual days.

Staying power

It stayed on my lips for a good 3 and half hours without any touch ups, it might differ from person to person. This shade did not leave behind any strong color tint on my lips but some shimmer particles were visible.
