I've always been a huge fan of Max Factors products, in particularly the foundations and mascaras, and it wasn't until recently that I came across their lipsticks and glosses. Today I'd like to share with you four different lip products from Max Factor for the perfect red pout. 

First up is the Max Factor Colour Elixir Gloss, which combines smoothing mineral oil, nourishing candelilla wax, shine enhancers and considering this a lip gloss, it has a considerably high pigmentation so you can wear it on its own, naturally, but you can also use it on top of a lipstick for added shine. It leaves the lips with a super glossy non-sticky finish. It does need to be re-applied every few hors, but that's pretty standard for a lip gloss. The shade Polished Fuchsia is a dark pink almost red shade, that is super wearable, and as the colour isn't as intense as a lipstick, it is also perfect for everyday casual wear, feeling very comfortable on the lips.

Next is the Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick, which is a moisturising lipstick that has been enriched with SilkTherapy™ complex with Silk Protein that helps sustain moisture levels for smoother lips, and it really does feel incredibly soft, creamy and moisturising on the lips. The shade Ruby Tuesday is the perfect bright red lipstick. It is super pigmented, giving full colour payoff, and it last hours and hours on the lips without fading or wearing off. The red shade does tend to bleed a little, but that's nothing using a lip liner first won't fix.

Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipstick in Evermore Sublime 

Then there's the Max Factor Colour Intensifying Lip Balm, which is a lip balm that has a buildable colour, so for each layer you apply, the colour intensifies, thanks to containing micro-fine mica particles to gradually build colour to the lips. One layer with give the lips a tiny touch of tint and a sheen, while five coats will give the most intense level of colour, and I really like this, so I can control the colour intensity according to my mood and the occasion. The balm is also a very moisturising formula containing among others mango, shea and cocoa butter. The Classy Cherry appears dark red in the tube but once applied it does have a slight dark fuchsia tinge. For everyday use this is one of my favourites, as I really love how I can build up the shade.

Finally, there's the Max Factor Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipstick, which a longwearing lipstick that delivers moisturising, intense colour that lasts for up to eight hours. And unlike many other longwearing lipsticks, which are often very drying on the lips, this one actually is a moisturising formula containing over 60 per cent skin conditioners and emollients fused together with two film formers that improve strength and long-wear. It also contains shea butter, squalane and acetylated lanolin to add intense moisturisation. The shade Evermore Sublime is a gorgeous classic red shade, and it really does have incredible pigmentation, and even when it wears off, it does so evenly leaving a nice red stain on the lips, so when I want to make sure my lipstick stays put and I have no time for touch ups, this one never fails. Also perfect for a night out!
