Max Factor Lipfinity 3D MAX Wear Lipcolor

Max Factor is no longer selling in the United States, but it is still available in Europe.  It also appears to still be available at some online retailers. I gave Max Factor Lipfinity MAXwear Lipcolor a try and rather liked it.Max Factor Lipfinity Max Wear 3D

This is a dual sided long wearing stain and gloss combo. The stain is thick and full of pigment. For best results, apply it to completely clean and dry lips and let it dry entirely before applying the gloss. The gloss has a nice moisturizing feel to it with no stickiness at all. It was a bit on the frosted side for my tastes though.

Overall, I liked the color of the Max Factor products and I got a couple of hours wear out of this. It did come off quickly, however, with eating and drinking. The MAC Cosmetic Lustre Twins (read previous review) last longer and are still my favorite.


Long Wearing Lip Color

I have found very few long wearing products that I can put up with. However, I love MAC Lustre Twins and Dior makes some standard lipsticks that last incredibly well.

For a deeper look at some long wearing products, also take a look at my review of Revlon, CoverGirl, Maybelline, and Milani long wearing products on Beauty on Fashion Tech.

Below is an article syndicated from Total Beauty on the matter that looks at some of the products that I have previously reviewed and more.

9 Supposedly Long-Lasting Lipsticks

Slicking on a coat of lip color every five minutes lost its allure after junior high. Nowadays, we want color that lasts hours and a product that doesn’t suck moisture from our lips. The Total Beauty Squad tested nine contenders to find ones with real staying power — enough to withstand cocktails and kisses. Find out which products delivered and which disappointed.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Kiss & Stay Lipgloss Duo

Rimmel kiss and stay lasting finish lipgloss Rimmel cosmetics has released a new line of long wearing lip duos—Rimmel Kiss and Stay. One side is a thick, long wearing stain, and the other is a gloss. I picked one up, and while I love the shade and lasting power of the stain, I was not at all happy with the gloss side of the duo.

The stain in the Rimmel Kiss and Stay duo is the typical high pigmented and fairly thick stain that you will see in long wearing products. Thus, in order to use it properly, you must apply it and let it completely dry before applying the gloss over it. Failure to let it dry will result in it chipping off or being over sticky. That is true of just about any long wearing product.  I found that the stain had nice color and it dried in the typical two minute time frame. It also lasted fairly well for me.

The gloss end of the duo was the disappointment. The gloss is very much on the sticky side. I found myself rubbing it off as quickly as I could and replacing it with a different non-sticky brand. So, while I liked the color that I got from the stain side of the product, I will not be using the gloss side of it.

Rimmel Cosmetics are available in Target stores and some drugstores. I think I picked up my Kiss and Stay  at Walgreens.
