I like Max Factor products and have been buying them for many years as I always find them to be good quality and suitable for my skin. I bought this Max Effect lip gloss for just £1 from my local discount store which is a great price as they are usually around £6.
The colour of my lip gloss is quite a bright orange colour but it looks quite subtle when you are wearing it and it also looks quite pearly and shiny. The tube is 13ml and it is half clear and half black so you can see the exact colour and also how much is left. There is an orange screw top which is as wide as the tube so it is plenty big enough to open and close and the top of the lid is flat so you can stand it up on the lid. There is no applicator but there is the usual slanted end which mimics the shape of most lipsticks and which makes it easy to apply.
To apply I will squeeze the tube until I can see a blob of the gloss and then apply it to my lips. As I don’t like to wear too much make up I often only have to apply it to my bottom lip and then rub my lips together gently so that it spreads to my top lip, but if I am going out I will apply it on both lips and take a bit more time. It does smell quite sweet and it tastes pleasant if you lick your lips.
I would describe the consistency as quite thick but it does spread out evenly and I find that it dries very quickly. I would say that it lasts on my lips for at least a couple of hours but obviously if I am eating or drinking it would need re-applying sooner. Although it looks quite pearly in the tube it does dry quite matte which I like as it looks more natural than the really shiny glosses.
This is a lovely quality lip glos which goes on easily and stays on my lips, so I do recommend it and would recommend it to others.
