Max Factor Colour Elixir Lip Gloss 25 Enchanting Coral

četrtek, april 11, 2019

For years I haven't been a lip gloss girl, but since I got Max Factor's Honey Lacquer, that's changed and now I got to try their classic Colour Elixir formula, which impressed me again. Max Factor has always done impressive lip gloss formulas, as many years ago I loved their Silk Gloss formula and this one is very similar.

Texture: Max Factor has some of the best lip gloss formulas in my opinion. It's never too thick or too thin and they have a similar cushiony, super comfortable formula that's similar to Catrice Dewy-full and Clarins Lip Perfector, so it's like a lip gloss and lip balm hybrid. Honey Lacquers are a bit more thick than this and have more pigmentation, while this one has a more sheer finish.

Colour: 25 Enchanting Coral is a cute pinky-peachy shade that just brightens up the face, especially when worn in combination with a pink or peachy blush.

Staying power: It's a regular gloss, meaning it doesn't last long and it doesn't survive eating or drinking. Honey Lacquer is bit better choice if you want a longer staying power, but it's again just a gloss. 

Scent: They still have that lovely vanilla scent they had in their Silk glosses.

Packaging: A regular slim, square tube with a doe foot applicator that's nothing special and works fine.

Price and availability: It's available in drugstores and I think the price is about 10 €. I bought my Honey Lacquer online for half the price and I think you can get this one much cheaper too.

This became one of my most worn lip products since I got it. Because of the comfortable formula I wear it instead of a lip balm and this shade is great too. The only bad side is poor staying power, but it's standard for a lip gloss. 

Have a great day!
