I spotted Max Factor’s new Lipfinity lipsticks on a recent shopping trip to my local Boots. I hadn’t heard anything about them previously, however when swatching the testers the creamy pigmented formula definitely appealed to me so I snapped up a few on the spot.
L-R: Ever Sumptuous, Evermore Sublime, So Vivid
These lipsticks claim to last around 8 hours on the lips and come in a range of colours. Usually long lasting lipstick formulas tend to be of a matte consistency and can be a little drying on the lips. These lippies seemed to have a sheen to them though and were a bit more moisturising than your standard stay all day lipstick.
I picked up the shades So Vivid (a muted rosy red colour), Ever Sumptuous (a vibrant orange, while still being wearable) and Evermore Sublime (an everyday medium pink, perfect for work or school).
I really like the formula of these lipsticks as they are long lasting without being overly drying. I don’t know if they would last a full 8 hours without any top ups, but they do seem to last a long time. I also love the smell of these lipsticks. To me they smell like strawberry sweets, which I can’t get enough of! However, if you’re not a fan of sweet smells you may want to give these a miss.
The only complaint I would have is the shape of the actual lipstick. The flat top makes it quite difficult to get a super neat edge to the lip line. However, after a few uses I’m sure it will mould to fit my lips, which will make application easier.
These lipsticks retail for £8.99, however Boots currently have a 3 for 2 offer on all Max Factor products.
