Max Factor Lipfinity
Advantages: Gorgeous colour range, lovely gloss
Disadvantages: Flakes immediately, leaving you with dry half coloured lips!
As a lipstick loving guru, with a constant stain to the lip area at all times, over the years I have tried Max Factor LipFinity and have been dissatisfied on every occasion. (The last time I tried this product was a year ago) I use Max Factor products on a regular basis and am pleased with the quality of their cosmetics, which is why I keep retrying this lip product, but it doesnt work for me!
There are several really good things about this lip product - it's definitely not all negative. Firstly the range of colours is fantastic, with bold shades, glitter, shimmer and sparkle, enough to satify me and all my various looks, day or night. Secondly, I really like the fact that this product comes in two seperate parts, as with other similar but combined colour and gloss products (in one stick / tube) I often run out of the gloss well before the colour and end up throwing lots away when I buy a new one.
My problem with this product is that it goes on quite heavily, and so takes ages to dry and then feels really uncomforable and tight to wear - you constantly want to stretch your lips as wide as you can. I then find it generally begins to flake immediately both from the friction of my lips generally when speaking and on glasses/drinks and dries my lips out completely, leaving me with semi naked lips, other than in sections around the edge of my mouth which only the strongest of make up removers seems to budge!
I love the range of colours, but hate the flake factor, which is why I'll keep retrying my friends Lipfinities, but not buy my own!
Summary: Stunning colours, but uncomfortable to wear and flakes off.
