Shelf Life:

3 years.

Price/ Quantity/Packaging:

INR 750 for 10 gm.  It comes in a classy cubical golden coloured lipstick case with the colour of the lipstick encapsulated at the bottom. They also have the number and name of the shade imprinted at the bottom. The cap clicks shut tight and makes it very travel friendly.  All in all, the golden colour makes it very classy and stylish.

Maxfactor Colour Elixir Lipstick - Sun Bronze 2

My Take on Maxfactor Colour Elixir Lipstick – Sun Bronze:

Colour: It is a beautiful pinkish bronze shade. It is an everyday wear shade and would look good on all skin tones.  I find that it matches with most of my outfits, it is indeed an universally-flattering shade.

Finish:  It is super soft and creamy and glides smoothly. It has a bit of frosty finish to it, but nothing that is bothersome.

Brown lipstick

Staying Power: It stays for a good 3 hours. It can not survive full meals but with continuous munching, it won’t budge from its place.

Pigmentation: It is nicely pigmented. The colour pay off can be built up in 2-3 swipes. A little turn off is the staining issue, I had to use an oil-based makeup remover to wipe it off completely. Though it does not stain majorly like how Colorbar lipsticks do.

Pink lips

Fragrance: It has a pleasant vanilla fragrance. Though I am a person who loathes cosmetics to smell nice (I mean we have perfumes to do their job), still I quite enjoyed the rich vanilla fragrance of this lipstick.  The initial outburst is quite strong but leaves a faint smell thereafter. Sensitive noses will not like it.

Efficacy:  It does not bleed nor does it settle into fine lines. Also, it is very moisturizing, no wonder it has vitamin E as one of the ingredients.

Summarizing the pros and cons:

Pros of Maxfactor Colour Elixir Lipstick – Sun Bronze:

  • Packaging is very classy and practical at the same time. The colour encapsulation at the bottom makes it very easy to locate (of course, the golden packaging would stand out, but if you have more than one of these, then the colour band comes to your rescue).
  • Very moisturizing.
  • Glides smoothly on the lips.

Cons of Maxfactor Colour Elixir Lipstick – Sun Bronze:

  • I wish it didn’t have any fragrance (good or bad becomes irrelevant).
  • Stains a bit.

Will I Repurchase Maxfactor Colour Elixir Lipstick – Sun Bronze?

Yes, I will definitely check out the other shades from this range and I think you can try this universally-flattering shade which goes with most of the attires.

IMBB Rating:

4/5.

P.S: I am attaching a picture of a necklace which my mother gave to me as a surprise gift on daughter’s day, overjoyed! Thanks mumma, you are the best :)
