I was in search of a very good peach lipstick, something very matte, and I spent a lot of time at a cosmetic store to pick the kind of peach that I wanted. I bought 3 lipsticks that I liked. Though they were not really the kind of “peach” that I wanted, but I still got them.
One was the Faces Glam On Lipstick in Silken Peach that I reviewed a few days back and today I will be reviewing the Max Factor Color Elixir Lipstick in Mystic Mocha 760.

My Take on Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick – 760 Mystic Mocha:
The lipstick has the colour end with the shade name on it, so that is really comfortable while picking it from your stash. The shade I picked, Mystic Mocha, is very brownish. When I swatched it at the store, I found the colour very pretty and so I got it. The texture is creamy and smooth and glides easily on the lips. It provides enough pigmentation and is slightly glossy, I am very happy with that. It is enough moisturising on the lips and does not settle into fine lines.
The lipstick bullet has an ‘X’ etched into it which just adds to the “experience” of using it. For a creamy lipstick, it had a decent lasting time for about 4 hours, the only time I needed to reapply was after eating. Once worn off, my lips still felt moisturised and smooth.
I reduce the intensity of the ‘’brown’’ by using the MAC Lip Erase underneath and that makes it stay for some more time. I compared Mystic Mocha to Faces Glam On Lipstick in Silken Peach. You can see the difference in the shades in the following picture.
The shades are pretty close except that Silken Peach appears to have a pinkish tinge while Mystic Mocha is brown. These also look very close to Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Cocoa Sheer, which is also another flattering brown.
Pros of Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick – 760 Mystic Mocha:
- Good pigmentation.
- Creamy, glides easily and very moisturising.
- Does not settle into fine lines.
- Amazing range of shades to choose from.
- Good staying power for a creamy lipstick.
Cons of Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick – 760 Mystic Mocha:
- It’s a little pricey.
Max Factor’s Color Elixir Lipsticks are available in a very likeable range or colours ranging from bright reds and pinks to very subtle nudes. There’s bound to be a colour for you. They’re are so amazingly nourishing on your lips, you won’t be disappointed! I’m sold! 😀
