Maxfactor Color Elixir Lip Liner In Pink Princess

Now I'm not really one to wear lip liners but when I was shopping recently I was somehow drawn to them. I was browsing the Maxfactor stand and came across their range of Color Elixir Lip Liners. I picked up this gorgeous deep coral pinky shade called Pink Princess (such a cute name may I add). After swatching it on my hand I decided to buy it and give it a whirl. When it was sitting in my basket I could see it would go perfectly with the Revlon Matte Balm In Elusive that I had also picked up.
When I got home I couldn't wait to try it out. The packaging is just like your standard makeup pencil, which will need to be sharpened once it becomes blunt. It has a clear plastic lid and the shade of the colour on the bottom which makes it really easy to pick out of your collection.
I know it sounds silly but I wasn't one hundred percent sure on how to apply lip liner. Do I just line the lips like the name suggests? Do I go slightly over or slightly in? I decided to just stick with outlining my lips and slightly filling them in.
The formula was really smooth and applied like a dream. It didn't tug at my lips or sit in the fine lines of my lips. I then applied my chosen lip product and I instantly saw a difference. My lips looked fuller and more defined and made such a difference to the end result. I also noticed that it made my lip product last that bit longer which is always a bonus.
It did take some getting use to but I can see this has started off my possible love for lip liners!

Pink Princess retails for £4.99 and can be purchased here.

Do you use lip liners?

  1. I don't use ip liners but would love the famous Kylie Jenner lip liner from Mac haha

  2. I have a maxfactor lipliner and I love it. This shade is really pretty and I agree with you that it goes so well with the matte balm elusive :) Not a regular user of lipliner myself but I do see the difference when I choose to use it.

    Thanks for posting, Have a wonderful day ♥
