REVIEW #4 - LIP CRAYONS / BALMS UNDER INR 1,000 - MAX FACTOR

Maxfactor’s Colour Elixir Giant Pen stick is a relatively new entrant in the crayon lipstick / balm category. The colour Designer Blossom is a reddish - coral – fuchsia colour. I know sounds strange but let me explain.




This giant pen stick works as a balm and doubles up as a lipstick too. The texture is smooth and soft and is easily build-able. On the very first look in the packaging it looks like a reddish-coral colour but once you build it up on your lips the colour changes to a mauve-ish fuchsia, I guess it shows up differently on different lips but I quite like this shade and the way it shows up on my lips.
Nevertheless it is an amazing product. The pigmentation is soft, creamy and gives your lips the added moisturising. Colour payoff and staying power is amazing; it stayed on my lips for over 12 hours straight with no touch ups and even lasted through meals. 


All in all a great product priced at Rs. 675/- is much cheaper than its counterparts. Though, this too does not have the twist-up mechanism nor can it be sharpened, the colour shows up very well on application so the quantity should last a bit longer.
