A firm favourite. Maxfactor make beautiful old lady style lipsticks. From the gold casing to the heavy perfumed scent (smells like comforting face cream) this lipstick is something I reach for most days.
I have the colour Ruby Tuesday. An easy everyday red. The colour is a bright blue based red with slight fuschia tones. The formula is ridiculously moisturising without leaving a glossy …

This transfers everywhere !!!
My fingers, my fingers and everything i touch
It never dries down and therefore it doesnt get matte and it feels weird on the lips yet the formula is kinda dry ?
The packaging isnt the best and its too expensive for what it actually is (paid around 20$)
Ps: i have this in the shade 35 love

This is for the shade English Rose.
I just love this rose shade. Perfect for everyday or night outs, it comes with a frost finish and leaves your lips moisturized. It's stays for a few hours since it has good pigmentation but as we all know, after an oily meal, reapplying is necessary.
I know some might think such a shade is good enough for older generations, but I think that's …

Kinda torn on this one. I picked up the color #735 Maroon Dust at CVS on a whim, so I wasn't looking too closely at the price tag. This lipstick cost me $14.99, which is perhaps the reason I'm so grumpy about it. First, the formula is merely average, and I found that it settles into my "lip lines". I'm in my early 20s so this should not be a problem for me, so I can …Read more

Max Factor lipsticks are definitely the best if you're in the market for long lasting matte lipsticks, I've been using them for five years already, the pigmentation is excellent, even when it wears out throughout the day it stays on as a lip stain of some sort and that's why I love them so much, the creamy texture is not to drying and the gold packaging feels luxurious. I have it …Read more

I bought this in the shade "Simply Nude" #725 at a local Big Lots store on sale for just $2. On me, the color shows up a pink brown nude with a little gold shine to it. It is sheer yet has enough color to look nice. And not be "see thru." I don't have to apply it as often as I've had to in the past with other nude lipsticks in similar shades. This will go nicely …Read more

I have this in Simply Nude 725, on me it is a browny pinkish nude (most nudes go orangey on me, so this is lovely). Goes on like a dream, lovely and moisturising. There is a slight smell but no taste. I think this would suit most skin tones. For reference I am fair skinned, blue eyes and platinum hair.

There was a sale two for one on Max Factor lipsticks. I was amazed how beautiful the one in colour pomegranate was. I prefer matte lipsticks but I made an exception. I grabbed also one in colour tea rose I think. The colour isnt like you want it to be. The lipstick is not longwearing unless you super prepare it (longwear lipticks shouldnt take much preparing). When I put it for the first time and …Read more

To me this is the ultimate 'old lady lipstick'. The scent, the heavily-moisturizing aspect, this does not settle into lines, comfortable to wear.

I am not sure what shades are all normally available, but the stores around me only have Simply Nude 725 and Maroon Dust 735. On me, Simply Nude is a very pale pinky-nude. This on me borders on concealer/corpse lips. And the scent …

Price: $$

Buy again? Yes.

As someone who's been wearing lipstick from the age of 13, I think I'm qualified to say that this is one of the most nourishing and comfortable formulas on the market. It contains a lot of skin conditioning ingredients; I sometimes even use the colour 725 Simply Nude as a tinted lip treatment of some sorts.

I own …
