Max Factor – Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipsticks

Max Factor – Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipsticks

Thinking back through the depths of time I think I can remember when Max Factor first launched their Lipfinity range, and it was quite something at the time – the first long-lasting lipstick! I had a friend who wore nothing else and she swore by Lipfinity, although I found the original ones a little too drying on the lips and you had a separate glossy top coat that you could keep applying over the top of the colour which seemed a little too much like reapplying your lipstick to me… Fast forward several years and Max Factor have recently launched their new range of Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipsticks, a range of 12 shades that last up to 8 hours without having to reapply. Encased inside glossy golden bullets these Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipsticks contain a nourishing oil-based emollient rich formula that includes shea butter, and helps to combat the problem of dry lips that you often get with long lasting lip products. The three shades that I’ve been testing out are...

The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick #7

The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick #7

Welcome to the seventh episode of ‘The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick’! I am on the hunt… the hunt for the perfect pink lipstick that is ‘MLBB’ or ‘my lips but better’. You know, the sort of colour that looks from a distance like you’re not wearing lipstick, like you just have naturally pink, plump perfect lips. The sort of colour you can just slick on from the tube and doesn’t need painstaking application with liner and lipbrush. The sort of colour that looks like ‘my lips, but better’. Today I am reviewing Longlasting Lipstick in 08 Colour Crush from Essence. Essence is a budget make-up brand that has only recently been launched in the UK in Wilkinsons stores, you might want to read my recent post about the UK launch of Essence Make-Up. The black bullet tube is simple and sleek and has a coloured pink band around the centre that matches the colour of the lipstick. I think that for a budget lipstick this one looks...

The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick #6

Welcome to the sixth episode of ‘The hunt for the perfect pink lipstick’! I am on the hunt… the hunt for the perfect pink lipstick that is ‘MLBB’ or ‘my lips but better’. You know, the sort of colour that looks from a distance like you’re not wearing lipstick, like you just have naturally pink, plump perfect lips. The sort of colour you can just slick on from the tube and doesn’t need painstaking application with liner and lipbrush. The sort of colour that looks like ‘my lips, but better’. Today I am reviewing Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick by Kate Moss in Shade 101 from Rimmel London. I’ve not actually used a lot of Rimmel products recently despite them being one of my favourite brands when I was a teenager. The red bullet tube is simple and has Kate Moss’ signature printed in black on the lid. I don’t really feel that Rimmel products look very premium, but I do find that the packaging is well made and sturdy...

Max Factor – Lashfinity 3 Day Mascara Review

Max Factor – Lashfinity 3 Day Mascara Review

I was so excited when I saw that Max Factor was bringing out Lashfinity 3 Day Mascara! Imagine…. a waterproof mascara that lasts for 3 days… so I registered on the waiting list for 2 packs and they arrived last week. I have been a fan of Max Factor mascaras for a long time, I used Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara for a long time and my current favourite is Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara, so I couldn’t wait to try out this new product! Max Factor describe the product, ‘Max Factor Lashfinity 3 Day Mascara is Life Proof; Lasting Multiple days enabling you to live your life through sleeping, showering and rubbing. A brand new technological advancement that brings long wear lashes to cosmetics.’ They then goes on to explain, ‘Although the mascara will stay on your lashes over a 3 day period, during wear, especially sleeping and showering, you may experience some smudging under the eyes. This can be easily removed by dipping a cotton bud in the built in...
