Tuesday was a great day – I received my first Vox Box from Influencer containing 3 very special lip products from Max Factor. I have used the products every day since I have received them to be able to give an all rounded review, it’s packed full of my honest opinions… Keep reading to find out what I thought!
Universal Lip Liner
Firstly I loved the packaging of this lip liner, it seemed a little more ‘out there’ than others drug store products I’ve seen recently. When I seen the ‘colour’ I was sceptical at first but the second I started to use it, I knew it was a great product. Back in the day I used to have to use a colourless wax to get the same effect this liner gives and trust me, it’s s much easier this way!
Despite it being mixed with jojoba oil and vitamin e, it has plenty of staying power and holds lipstick/gloss exactly where you want it. For those of who are worried about knowing whether you have put the product on correctly, I wouldn’t worry as you cant really go wrong; the texture is soft and creamy so you can feel it glide on. Is this the lip hack of 2017?
Oh and at just 4.99 you can’t miss out on this, especially when you consider the quality of the pencil!
Max Factor Colour Elixir
Let me start by saying that I had high hopes for this lipstick as soon as I saw the colour and luckily for me, the product lived up to my expectations and beyond. I tested this product on my lips, straight from the bullet at first, it’s creamy and soft in texture and the pigment pay off is wonderful; an intense, rich colour from the first swipe.
I then tidied up the edges with a sharp lip brush to perfect my lips, went about my day… even drank coffee. Okay, okay lots of coffee! To my amazement when I got back home and looked in the mirror my lipstick was still perfectly in place which got me thinking that my lips hadn’t felt dry all day and I’m usually a serial lip balm applier. That’s when I learnt that the lipstick has a little secret, it’s 60% elixir.It’s packed full of Aloe, Shea and Avocado butters as well as white tea so it keeps your lips soft & silky smooth.
It comes in at 7.99 and you have 19 shades to choose from!
Colour Elixir Honey Lacquer
Ok, so I’m a sucker for a glossy lip – I love how plump, rich and healthy lips look when they are wearing a good bit of sheen which is why I was so happy to receive this in my vox box. I received the colour Honey Rose which is a soft, romantic shade of pink, it’s wonderful!
Unlike many lip glosses this one packs a punch in regards to pigment, there’s good colour pay off and has a nice high shine about it. Although there are no glitter particles in it the gloss really does reflect the light, plus it doesn’t have that awful stickiness to it which can sometimes come with glosses. It’s definitely a new favourite of mine, you can get one for 9.99 and choose from 8 different shades.
P.S These products have staying power! It took me 3 washes with soap to try and remove these, it was obviously easier with makeup remover but it goes to show that they will withstand more than you need to go about your day without touch ups.
