Max Factor Lipfinity Lip Tint

Max Factor Lipfinity Lip Tint

After using a hell of a lot of cosmetics, I got so dead bored with all the lip products, especially because theyโ€™re all the same. The lipsticks, lip glosses, lip liners, all unvaried. Though the cosmetic companies have always tried to modernise on these very basic lip products, Iโ€™ve felt the same and they were all comparable.

Max Factor Lipfinity Lip Tint

One day whilst checking out the sites of a few cosmetic brands, I came across something called a “lip tint.” ย It caught my attention. I searched on a few sites and gathered some information about it, I was very impressed with the concept!

I then discovered that Maybelline and Revlon both make lip tints and I ran across all the counters in Hyderabad, but was so disappointed when I was told that they have been discontinued.

I then found this lip tint from Max Factor which I thought would answer my dream ๐Ÿ™‚

Shade 02

It is similar to the lip tint that I fell for, when I saw online. So, I tried a few colors there and because I wanted a lip tint with a very natural hue, I picked Shade-02 of Max Factor Lipfinity Lasting Lip Tint. ย Out of all the shades I found at the counter, I felt this was the lightest and the most natural, hence I bought it!

In that ecstatic mood, I rushed home to try it out on myself, but it was not what I expected, not a whit.ย Yes, it dries out after application. ย It doesnโ€™t show up any shine, but I was not happy with it.


Let me tell you why.

  • I discovered that if you are one of those women with pigmented lips, this product is not for you. You would hate it and absolutely! It does not offer any coverage, not a little bit of it! I am guessing darker shades would, but lighter shades no day will do that, and I donโ€™t think you should expect a lip tint to offer coverage.
  • My lips are a little pigmented at the end, and they looked a disaster there! The beautiful pink shade got so dark and made my lips look like I have lined them with the darkest and lamest brown lip pencil just at the little corner there! I hated that! How could I wear the lip tint? I was looking pathetic with that dark lining on my lips just at that one corner! God! That was a nightmare. I tried covering it up in many ways, but I failed.
  • Do not be fooled by how the colour looks on your hand or on the tube. It is actually much darker when you put it on your lips. Just try out patiently with one application and judge it only after it dries off completely. Do not hurriedly apply it ten times on your lips, because then, you will look like you got stuck with a permanent marker!ย One application will give you reasonable and desirable amount of colour on your lips according to me. Be careful about that!
  • Another turn off with this lip tint is that it is very difficult and irritating to remove the stain. ย It stains your lips spectacularly! You will hate it! It is such a job to get it off your lips! (My mom was so annoyed one night, she asked me why I was wearing make up at home! What should I tell her? That I spent 630 rupees to get myself looking like a dimwit?) I give up every time! Maybe because it is the property of the lip tint to dry on the lips that this happens, but who cares?
  • It is easy and quick to apply, but you should be careful not to apply too much of it on your lips as it could over-stain them and getting rid of the stain from your lips is not an easy job!
  • Do not leave the cap open, it will dry out, happened to my friend ๐Ÿ™
  • Please and please first try it on your lips at the store and then buy only if you are okay with it. Do not take a chance. We are not getting it cheap or for free. You have all the right.

shade 02

To those women blessed with beautiful lips without any pigmentation at all, this would work great. Though everybody will have the shade-trouble and problem with removing it, I think it would still be satisfactory if lip tint is something that you want, something very dry on your lips, yet adding that beautiful stain to them!

Some might feel it too dry on the lips and apply a lip balm or a gloss over the lips, but what I ask is, if you put a lip balm or a gloss over the lip tint, it looks similar to a lipstick or any other lip product, โ€œthen why buy the lip tint? Try keeping your lips dry when you wear the lip tint, trust me, it looks beautiful that way.

Shade 02

The staying power is something with which I am happy. ย Like I said, the stain never comes off, so it is pretty obvious that the lip tint stays for VERY long, 5 hours and 20-30% of the color might reduce, but for all the color to come off from your lips, you should make an effort!

It has a fruity smell and tastes sweet ๐Ÿ˜› ( Yes, I licked my lips, happy?)


Oh dearies! I hate the packaging! My 6-year-old cousin would come up with something better looking and creative. Huh!
It is a marker pen like. Smooth and easy to apply. Works the same way as a felt-tipped pen.


630 INR.

Product Description:

The extended range of our Lip Tint pens showcases 5 vibrant new shades which use more intense pigment yet retain the same lightweight feel. You get all the colour without the sticky opaqueness of traditional lipsticks. The formula is water based and permeates the upper layers of the lips to create non-transferable layers of colour with depth and intensity that you build using the pen applicator. Get intense. Donโ€™t get heavy. Formula is water based and permeates the upper layers of the lips to create kissproof layers of colour. The handy pen applicator lets you contour and define then build depth and intensity, to create the perfect level of colour for you. So get intense. Donโ€™t get heavy.

Pros ofย Max Factor Lipfinity Lip Tint:

  • Very long lasting, you should literally scrub your lips to get it off from your lips.
  • Looks amazing on the lips when worn. It being natural depends on the shade you select. This shade is pretty natural.
  • Easy and quick to apply.
  • Easy to carry around.
  • Kiss proof ๐Ÿ˜› , because the colors are infused into the lips ย (huge advantage! :P)

Cons ofย Max Factor Lipfinity Lip Tint:

  • Could be the worst nightmare for people with pigmented lips. I personally can tell you, please do not buy the lighter shades of this if you have got pigmented lips.
  • Very difficult to remove.
  • Dries off if the cap is left open for a little long.
  • Hate the packaging.
  • It sticks in the cracks of the lips like dried blood. You got to have smooth lips for a better look.


Please try it at the store. Select shades that suit you only. I believe if you want a lip tint, then you should accept that fact that lip tints indeed take time to be removed because they evidently dry on your lips, but it is a great product if you exactly know what lip tints are and if that is all you expect from them.

Will I Buyย Max Factor Lipfinity Lip Tint Again?

Yes, but the little pigmentation at the corner on my lips is something that is making me think, but I really want to buy it because I love lip tints. ย They are very natural, very soon I am going to get another.

  1. hieee ravali.. i liked ur review..nicely pointed out everything with humour :yes: well done..

    but i don understand, the diff btn lipstick and there any??other than tint will stain ur lips and looks like a marker :silly:

    1. Right Ginny, a lip stain is usually dry and does not looks coated or sticky like a lipstick. Most lipstick are realy creamy and thus the staying power is less. A lip stain lasts longer and looks more natural on your lips (though that depends on the shade you pick). Sometimes lip stains are more comfortable than lipsticks or glosses. And thank you! :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :pompom:

      1. wow!!!amazing ravali!!!! such a detailed description :yes: hmmm ths tempts me to try one :whistle:

        thanks sooo much :puchhi:

  2. Hi Ravali ..
    It looks like permanent marker :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: guess you’ll have to apply a lot of balm before using this .. but still I luuuuuuurve max factor :happydance: :happydance:

    1. Yeah lipstains usually are marker types..but I would not prefer to put a lot of balm before applying it coz then the marker doesnt let the color coat your lips properly. Just a little balm for your satisfaction because anyways there are chances your lips dry out. Apllying a balm over it is fine!
      Thank you! :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

  3. hhi. while reading ur post i thought u hated it ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ …fir neeche u hv mentioned u r going to buy it again ๐Ÿ˜› I feel the same abt some products too. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    u know u should try a lighter shade.i can guess how dark it would look on lips. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Right! ๐Ÿ™‚ With pigmented lips its like a disaster..but for blessed people it really works fine. If you deal with the few cons of it you will love it. I suggested to buy it because if you buy a lipstain all the cons that I mentioned will no matter what tag along!

  4. well did u try appliyin it wid a lip balm n did u try removin it wid a good makeup remover?i wanna try a lip tint ba now al be super careful wid d shade i pick…….nice review ravali ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Actually Hana, applying a balm and then trying to use the liptint is not a good idea because you see it is just like a marker, just think of how a sketch pen would write on an oiled paper or surface. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ It doesn’t really right? That is the same here. A little balm is okay but not lots of it. :headbang: :headbang:
      And yes please be careful with the shade. Even with a good makeup remover you have a job to do to remove it! Thank you! :jiggy1: :jiggy1:

  5. Nice review Ravali..I saw these at the max factor counter but never tried..will try it in a lighter shade now ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Hehe! Very kiss proof ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Try them! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

  6. i was going to order this liptint online since i’m not aware of any maxfactor stores in blore,i’m so happy now that i didn’t :yahoo: right review at the right time thanks ravali :teddy:

    1. Thank you Shashi! The shades could really trick you as they are darker when applied. So buying online could be quite a risk. If you ever happen to go to a store, try them out first and then buy. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ :toothygrin:

  7. Nice Review…I have one of dese too..yes..they dry out ur lips..but wonderful shades..and very long lasting !

  8. Oh dear why everything kiss proof and long lasting dry out lips :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: Nice review Ravali :yes: but where is the lip swatch ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Click on my name to vote for FIB round 3 :announce:

    1. Haaannn! Me too hates that! Why do they dry out lips? :headbang: :headbang:
      And thanks TA! Sorry that I couldn’t do a swatch! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

  9. Ravali..thnx for reviewing..i was thinking of getting some shades from this range..but settling on lines is really bad.but i don’t mind the marker pen packaging..remindis of school ke din :tongue: but even after so many cons you want to buy them again n rated 4/5 ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. Yeah right. If you got smooth lips na..this could be fine..but dry and chapped lips will be worsened on using this :headbang: . And yeah even after so many cons I gave it a good rating becoz it is really subjective..if you are blessed with good lips..then you will no doubt like it. :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

  10. Its a heart ache if u buy a prodct wd so many hopes n dreams n it fail miserably..thanks for warnings us …lol…i was about to try this .try the famous PAT PAT technique…u might like it…dnt apply directly..n yeah its a gud prodct do sumthn to wrk it out..Gud Luckk
    p.s-my frend have this n loves this..
