Maxfactor Colour Elixir Lipstick: Scarlet Ghost

Heyya!!

This is my first review on a lip product. I was never into lipsticks. Till last year, I only used to apply lip balms (not even glosses), but after becoming an avid reader of IMBB, I built up this urge to have them all. :D :D Continue reading to know more about this product.

My take on Maxfactor Colour Elixir Lipstick: Scarlet Ghost 720

I love bright shades in reds, pinks and corals, although being dusky in complexion; I cannot afford to wear any shade. But then my cousin’s wedding happened, and I had to buy one bright color that would suit my skin tone (guess I was just looking for an excuse). So finally I bought this gorgeous shade in red (never thought I would buy one).

When SA introduced me these Maxfactor lippies, I totally fell in love with the packaging. It comes in a plastic casing coated metallic gold matte finish, which makes it look quite expensive.

So initially the SA started with purple and plum shades for trial. But once I tried this one on, I knew I had to buy it. This lipstick has extremely soft and creamy formula which glides smoothly/easily on the lips. Initially it gives a shiny appearance to the lips, but once set it turns into a matte finish. I just love matte lipsticks and this one is a great one to choose from.

It is quite moisturising and I do not recommend usage of a lip balm underneath this as it may tend to bleed. One should use a lip liner to define the outline before using such bright colors. It is highly pigmented and the color is so intense that you need only 1-2 swipes of it.

The staying power is awesome, it stays on for a very long time (more than one can expect) and does not require touch-ups. So these lippies are perfect for both day and night outings. Also the other thing I liked about it is that it does not transfer much (although a little bit) and does not fade away even after eating.
