|lip balm and the lip colour 191 bronzed|
Max Factor say: Up to 12 hour ultra long lasting lipstick. A lipstick that stays in place all day and doesn’t lose its ‛just applied look’! No other lip colour has the staying power of Lipfinity, an ultra long lasting and vibrant lip duo that together create a smooth, sheer finish for up to 12 hours! With semi permanent colour and a shine boosting, moisturising topcoat there’s no need to reapply, even after eating and drinking throughout your day – no matter how long it is, your lipstick’s still on!
The lip colour feels like a lipstick, easy to apply. Once its dried, my lips felt dry and I definitely needed some moisture in the lips which is what the lip balm provided.
The staying power on the Lipfinity is fantastic. I ate and drank and it stayed put. After about four hours I felt that my lips were dry, but the colour was still on my lips and looked good, so I applied the lip balm and that was fine.
After about eight hours I did feel that the colour was wearing off a little in the middle of my lips, nothing too bad though. After the twelve hours you could see the wrinkling and wearing off of the colour.
Overall the Max Factor Lipfinity did work and has good all day staying power, however it does dry the lips out and you can tell straight away because the lips start tightening and feeling cracked. I guess this is expected though as it is staining the lips so the colour stays on all day. Once you reapply the lip balm they feel moisturised and good again. I reapply the top coat lip balm about four times in a twelve hour period.
I'm going to try a few of the other 'longer' lasting lipstick from loreal and covergirl to see how they compare.
Have you tried this? Have you tried a long lasting lipstick/lipstain, what did you think?
