Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick Makeup Review in 35 & 55, these new puppies have just hit the counters and most bloggers are crazy for them. I wanted to try out the red shade #35 passionate red and shade #55 in mysterious hazel. They both seemed like shades that would suit the majority of my clients and myself. I really loved the entire collection and found that the 6 shades were all excellent. I wanted to do s short review of the pen sticks to give my honest opinion. These products were bought with my own money and I wasn’t paid to do this makeup review of Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick in shade 35 and 55.

Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick Makeup Review

The Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick look like Clinique chubby sticks and a makeup review had to follow just to see how similar they are. When I was in the store the giant pen sticks swatches beautifully and comparing them to the majority of pen sticks that I have they are very similar in texture unlike the NYX jumbo pencils which are on the more drier texture. If you have the Revlon lip butters than you basically can skip these since they are basically the same thing at the end of the day. These giant pen sticks are a mix between the Clinique chubby sticks and Urban Decay lip colour pencils, so this means you can drop the more expensive jumbo pencils.


Now to complete this short makeup review of Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick, let me describe each shade quickly so that you can understand what the shade is like since I have to admit I am not overall happy with my swatches, for some reason it just wasn’t turning out well. Both shades are very cream and very pigmented one swipe and you have a very good pigmentation. The texture of this pens is very soft and moisturizing something like a lip-gloss but not tacky. The glossy effect wears off first but the color stays on quite well. Shade 35 passionate red is a very hot red shade that it like a pin-up red. If you like that kind of true red shades that is the shade for you. Shade 55 Mysterious Hazel is on the orange side and looks very natural on the lips but gives a touch of orange, perfect for a Smokey eye look or for everyday makeup look. To complete this makeup review Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick are a good buy and I do recommend them over other more expensive brands since you get a very similar product for a much better price.
