Max Factor Lipfinity Lip Tint - 03 Pink Princess

I love lipstains and tints - the fact I don't have to reapply all the time is great! I also used to be a big fan of the original Lipfinity stuff, you know where you apply the colour first and the gloss second? In my opinion it's the best long lasting lipstick around. I'm a little less high maintenance now though, so I don't mind too much if my lipstick wears off.

So, when I found out Max Factor had brought out a lip stain I really wanted to try it! I had a bit of a swatching session and chose what looked to be the lightest (shown at the bottom, the other colours are the other colours available from 03-06, there isn't loads of choice), Pink Princess:

Like most lip stains, this had a felt tip style applicator and had a vague smell to it, not awful or nice, just a brief whiff of something. The applicator is actually one of the better lip stain ones I've used, it isn't rock hard or scratchy and there isn't any colour bleed on application.

On the lips, it was a much brighter and darker colour, however - this doesn't bother me as I quite like the colour it turned out, but still I was a bit surprised!

This is long lasting, it survived me eating and drinking and lasted 5 hours before it started to look a little faded. It is matte, putting gloss over it would reduce the longevity, and I would imagine if you wore this all the time it migt be a bit drying, but that's what I tend to expect from a lip stain/tint. You don't notice it's on your lips either. Would repurchase this but would like a few more colours?
These are on offer for £4.99 at Superdrug at the moment, so if you're wanting to check them out, now may be the time.


  1. I've seen these advertised somewhere and wanted to try them but was disappointed but the MAC ones. Might pick one up since they're on offer! Thanks for the review!

  2. This looks really lovely on! I have never been a fan of lip tints but I think it has more to do with not being able to apply them very well! Thats why I usually go for subtle glosses n the like.

    I adore the Max Factor goodies so I might give this a try - for £4.99 it would be a bargain if I actually liked it :)

  3. Laura, I wanted the MAC ones too but then decided that really, most lip stains like this are much of a muchness, I can't see how it would be any better just because it costs £10 more. These ones are well formulated (not runny) and the actualy felt tip part is nice and soft. The Pixi lip stains are quite good too but I think I like this one too.

  4. Wow, I really like these! Over here they are being sold for €9.99. I might just wait for my next trip to Englad, which is not far away!

  5. Really like the look of this - might need to have a look as I've been eyeing up the bloom cosmetic ones in superdrug but these max factor are cheaper


Thank you for commenting, I read them all!
