There are some things which make you fall in instant love with them and this baby is one of them. You all would have hauled a lot in the “Sales” season and I am quite sure that you would have spent some money on cosmetics too! I cannot go to a mall and ignore the cosmetics stalls staring at me, it feels like a crime not to buy anything :P. Okay, I know this impulsive shopping is not a good thing, but this makes me happy and I indulge in it quite often. This lipstick is a result of such an impulse.

My Experience with Max Factor Elixir Lipstick in Eternal Flame:
Packaging: I am glad that the bottom of this lipstick is the same shade as the lipstick, which makes it very helpful in identifying the shades even if you are in a hurry and have more than one of these. This comes in a beautiful matte gold case which looks very classy.
Shade: I got this shade just by swatching it on my hands. It was a fresh pink shade, slightly leaning towards being neonish. I instantly fell in love with this lipstick and asked the SA to quickly make the bill as my feet were killing me. This shade comes out to be non-neon on my lips which is a slight disappointment for me as I wanted to own a neon shade, but it is so pretty that I do not have any complaints. This is a great shade and would suit fair to medium skin tones a lot.
Texture: Quite smooth. This glides easily on my lips and they never feel heavy even on swiping 2-3 times on the lips.
Pigmentation: The first swipe goes sheer, but when swiped twice or thrice, the shade covers the lips with its full glory, but I don’t think it will hide intensely pigmented lips.
Price and Quantity:
670 INR for 5 gm.
Staying Power: This stays on my lips for 4+ hours easily, even with full meals in between. After that, I have pink tint on my lips which looks quite good too. I am happy with the staying power, as I just have to reapply it once while in office.
I am quite happy with this formula and range and I would definitely buy a few more shades from this range. Although, I am a bit disappointed that the shade is not as bright as it looks in the shade indicator at the bottom of the lipstick or the lipstick itself. My hunt for a poppy pink continues, but this delivers what it claims, no doubt about that.
Pros of Max Factor Elixir Lipstick in Eternal Flame:
- Very smooth.
- Does not dry out the lips.
- Great shade selection.
- Great staying power.
- Packaging is very classy and sturdy.
- Price is okay for the quantity.
- Easy to locate because of the shade indicator at the bottom.
