Review | Max Factor Colour Elixir Gloss 60 Polished Fuchsia

Max Factor makeup has always been a favourite of mine. I remember the joys I used to experience whenever we went over to my aunt as she would let me rummage through her makeup collection, most of which was actually Max Factor and she even let me try on the products.

My favourites were the lipsticks and glosses, mostly because of the insane pigmentation; fast-forward 20 years later and some of my favourite lip products are branded Max Factor as well :) Today, I shall be sharing my thoughts on the Colour Elixir Gloss in the shade 60 Polished Fuchsia with you. 

The packaging, albeit simple, looks very classy with the matte gold cap and sleek, transparent tube. The applicator, a doe foot type, is the perfect size to go round the contours of the lips flawlessly - a must with such a brightly pigmented product.
The gloss has an utterly shiny finish and wear is very comfortable all throughout. I would describe the shade as a red-based fuchsia that will suit most skin tones. The conditioning formula is enriched with smoothing oil to ensure all round moisture.
As for lasting power, I think this lasts more than your average lipgloss, say three to four hours, thereby being on par with most lipsticks. I enjoy wearing this gloss both alone and paired with a matching lipstick and liner, depending on how intense I want my lips to look.
