Max Factor Lipfinity: The Best Drug Store Lipstick You’ll Try This Year

20th Aug 2015

When we get our mitts on a budget beauty lipstick that really ticks our boxes, we have to shout about it. No, you do not have to spend 40 quid on a luxury branded lippie if your wallet will not allow you; at €12.49 a pop, the latest line of lipsticks from Max Factor are every bit as worthy of your love.

Th new Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipstick comes in 8 gorgeous shades; there isn’t a single one we wouldn’t wear. The raspberry hue of So Vivid works a treat with a simple black eyeliner and a striped Breton top while the Always Elegant gives your lips a rich, plum finish to ease you into autumn. Without being too glossy or sticky, these lipsticks are super hydrating, meaning you won’t see a line or crack or hint of dryness all day long. We’ve tried and tested the product and it delivers on both fronts: a cashmere soft feel and vibrant, long lasting colour.

From the bright orange-reds, lavish purples and dusty pink lips seen during New York fashion week, to the truly classic reds seen at across the lavish shows in Paris, the multitude of luxuriously rich shades in the Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipstick line-up allow women to power up their own make-up look and embrace the stand out trends. Backstage, Max Factor Creative Design Director Pat McGrath’s secret to the ultimate bold lip is layering lipsticks for deeper colour and a multi-dimensional effect.

?Try layering a deep-toned burgundy on top of a true red for a rich and opulent lip that’s so on trend for 2015. Apply Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipstick in Just Deluxe first using a brush then, using your fingertip, dab a deeper burgundy shade such as Always Elegant keeping within the centre of the mouth and blot with a tissue to meld the colours together.? Pat McGrath comments, ?Alternatively, create a more stained lip effect, apply colour in the centre and fade it outwards so it is undefined at the outer rim of the lips.?

Whatever the look, the breakthrough moisture-replenish formula glides effortlessly across lips leaving vibrant colour that lasts for up to 8 hours.

Boasting shea butter and acetylated lanolin (a non-drying organic compound produced from the oil found in sheep wool, used for its moisturising properties), we’ve just found ourselves a budget beauty buy that will certainly give the more luxurious, expensive brands a run for their money.
