I am back again with my favourite makeup product review which is a long wearing lipstick from Max Factor in lipfinity range . Thanks to IMBB as it serves as a medium to express my love for makeup and also I get to know many makeup lovers and their views. Now back to review I have noticed that these days almost every brand has come up with a liquid matte & long wearing lip colors. Let’s find out more about these lipsticks….
Lipfinity Lipstick gives you a glamourous lasting finish in two easy steps.
• Apply in the morning for colour that lasts through lunch, coffee and afternoon tea.
• Smart two step system that colours and moisturises.
• Moisturising top coat seals in colour to keep lips moist.
• Choose from various high fashion, long-lasting colours
Price: QAR 58 for 2.3 ml Lip color & 1.9 g Top gloss
Shelf life: 36 months
My Experience with Max Factor Always Extravagant Lipfinity Lipstick:
This range has a wide variety of shades varying from country to country which is always a plus for me. The claim of this being a long lasting lip color is completely false. I really had high expectations from this brand but to my surprise it doesn’t survive meals. It contains shimmer which gives the glossy effect even when the lipstick has completely dry out. The top coat acts as a lip balm and a gloss too. It is very necessary to avoid the lips from drying out. The best part about this lip color is that it does not transfer at all.
I really love the concept of separate tubes containing a moisturising top coat (which is a lip gloss ) and liquid lipstick. Both the tubes are sleek and the shade code and shelf life is written on the top of cap unlike regular lipsticks which has the shade code at the bottom of the lipstick. Both the tubes have the same shape and design but the top coat is in a twist up bullet form whereas the lipstick is in a thick liquid form.
The lip color is thick but glides smoothly on the lips. The top gloss is also of a very soft and buttery consistency and very moisturising. The lipstick contains shimmer which is not visible after application but is gives a sheer finish without top gloss.
It stayed on my lips for about 2 hours after application. But soon it started chipping off from my lips even after the applying the Top gloss. I ate meals in between and the lipstick had chipped off of my lips unevenly as if I had a nail paint on my lips. It is very disappointing. It takes about 5 min to completely dry out and once set, the top coat is necessary to lock the color within the lips. Maybe because of that the lipstick didn’t fade away completely.
Pros of Max Factor Always Extravagant Lipfinity Lipstick:
• Moisturising and does not accentuates fine lines.
• Fair pigmentation.
• Formula is thick liquid which easily glides on lips.
• Super pigmentation.
• Doesn’t bleed out of lips.
• It is very light on lips.
• Top gloss is very moisturising. It can be used alone as a lip balm.
• Very mild scent.
• Easily available.
• Do not transfer.
Cons of Max Factor Always Extravagant Lipfinity Lipstick:
• Accentuates into lines which usually matte lipsticks do.
• Staying power is not upto the mark as claimed by brand.
• Contains shimmer.
• Dries out the lips.
IMBB Rating: 3/5
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Max Factor Always Extravagant Lipfinity Lipstick?
May be I will purchase another shade as there is a wide variety of shades to choose from. I am not sure whether I will recommend it as it doesn’t works on my lips but it is not necessary for yours.
I would suggest you to always keep this lip color in your bag while as one will need to touch it up after every meal.
