When it comes to lipsticks; or any lip product for that matter, I always tend to go for red. Red red red. I don't know why but its the only colour I can seem to really properly pull off without looking clown like? The irony of it. Anyway, I recently got these two lipsticks from Max factor. Max factor isn't a brand I really buy from often, although I've sometimes seen posts which have encouraged me to go and try things from them, for some reason I steer away from the brand. Anyway, I was on the look out for a moisturizing, non drying lipstick as no matter how often I moisturize my lips, the cold weather is really getting to them. No one likes the cracked lip look which is only made worse when teamed with a drying lipstick. I'm glad I found these little gems, and for £6.99 they're more than worth it.
The main reason I was swayed into buying these was the elixir side of the lipstick. If elixir is good enough to do peoples hair wonders, then its bound to be good enough for my lips. The 'elixir' treatment in the lipsticks boasts ingredients such as Shea, avocado and aloe butters, as well as a anti oxidant white tea, which sounds pretty impressive in itself. I got the colours cherry kiss and ruby Tuesday, despite being very similar, I swear they're not and the photos don't give them justice. Cherry kiss is more of a post box red out of the two, while ruby Tuesday is edging on a slight more berry colour (again photos don't do any justice).
I was surprised at how moisturizing these were on my lips, and they worked treat at hiding my cracked lips rather than showing it more. I always find that the more moisturizing a lipstick is; the quicker it comes off, but these lasted a good 6 hours fading only slightly throughout that time, so needless to say I'm impressed. I'll definitely be looking at some more of these to get in the future, and Max factor is a brand I'm going to be trying out a lot more from now on.
Have you tried these?
