The Gorgeous New Lip Gloss You Need In Your Beauty Bag

The Gorgeous New Lip Gloss You Need In Your Beauty Bag

While I love the premise of a lip stain, they still feel like hard work. Lip stains always have a tendency to dry my lips out and unless applied with precision, never look quite right. If you have time to prep and prime your lips, fair enough, but who has time for that in the morning? Fuss-free beauty is what I’m after these days, and as I tend to veer away from harsh matte lipsticks in summer, this new lacquer from Max Factor ticks all the right boxes.

When Max Factor’s new Colour Elixir Honey Lacquer collection landed on my desk, I was pleasantly surprised – it’s next-level lip wear. Each one contains the pigment of a lipstick, the shine of gloss and nourishment of a balm – without dryness, flakes, or a sticky coating. ?The shades – there’s eight altogether -?from nudes to corals, pinks and reds are long-lasting (I only needed one touch up after eating) and perfect if you want a bold look without the high-maintenance. One coat gives you a nourished?yet glossy finish that stays put for hours. The berry and coral shades are particularly gorgeous on.

It’s a multi-tasking, densely pigmented?lip product designed to nourish glossy lips and ensure the smooth feel of a balm – perfect if you’re always on the go.

Max Factor Colour Elixir Honey Lacquer is available in 8 shades retailing at €13.99
