Shades reviewed in this post:

Locally, there are 20 exciting shades to choose from and Max Factor has kindly provided us with 11 shades to swatch. 

For a limited time from now till 27 May, we’ll be giving out two of our favorite shades- Ruby Tuesday and Burnt Caramel! All you need to do, is to spend a min of $88 on our website in a single receipt and indicate your preferences for the type of lipstick (Lip Elixir/Lipfinity) and the shade (e.g Ruby Tuesday) in the comments section upon checkout. While we will try our best to pack in the desired product, the final product you receive will depend on the availability of these lip product. So hurry! :D 

Lip Stick Application:

If you prefer a more intense finish with neater lip line, choose the Precision Lip.

If you like a quicker application and a softer look, choose the Lip Perfector.

1. Pick up the lipstick and apply the color, starting at the center of the upper lip and moving outward toward one corner.
2. Bring the lipstick back to the center and run it outward toward the other corner.
3. Repeat with the lower lip.

Bonus tip: To create the illusion of a fuller pout, use the precision lip brush to take a slightly lighter shade and dab it onto the centre of the lips.

Optional: Apply some lip balm to smooth your lips. Prime your lips with foundation, if desired, then apply lip liner (eg, Color Elixir Lip Pencil) 

Why we love the Lip Elixir:

We’re obsessed with this super hydrating, creamy formula: The Lip Elixir feels really comfortable to wear and lasts throughout the entire day. The formulation is much more moisturising than we are used to – and glides on very easily indeed. We took a closer look at its formula and were stoked to find nourishing ingredients that pamper our lips. According to its ingredient list, the top ingredient is Ricinus Communis Seed Oil. Its key speciality is its blend of 60% emollients (read: moisturisers), conditioners, and antioxidants including vitamin E. The moisturizing effect of the product provides hydration for fuller smoother lips. We liked how plump our lips look while wearing the Lip Elixir we found ourselves reaching out for this ultra comfy lipstick everyday. 

Secondly, we were really surprised by how long wearing this product is: Lipsticks are usually not known for being long-wearing, but the Lip Elixir proved us wrong. While it does stain our cups like conventional lipsticks, this product requires very minimal touch ups and does not disappear on us through the day. This product actually stains our lips (good and bad). Like a lip stain, you can’t remove this product with a tissue and will require a makeup remover for a thorough removal. This lipstick is really amazing and one application is enough to last me from day till night. We even played netball with this lip product and it did not bleed or budge at all. 

Lastly, we love the beautiful wearable shades in this collection: From bold reds to soft browns to glossy pinks, you’ll surely find something that suits you. Ruby Tuesday is a beautiful classic red that compliments our Asian skin tone. So if you have been struggling to find a red lip for your warm skintone, give the Red Ruby a try!
