Pucker Up! | Max Factor Lipfinity EverLites.

Every once in a while, my grandmother in Florida (she's my Mum's paternal aunt) would send a cargo box to my siblings and I here in the Philippines. And each time she does, she makes sure to include makeup items for my sister and I.

Case in point, this Max Factor Lipfinity EverLites which was neatly tucked among the collectible dolls that she sent to my sister. The funny thing is, my sister hates dolls - all the more after having watched The Conjuring. (You know, Annabelle the haunted doll.) Oh, the irony. Lol!
Max Factor Lipfinity Everlites.
Anyway, the Max Factor Lipfinity EverLites comes in a pack of two items - one is the standard lip color (called the 'Color Base Coat'), while the other is a clear one (called the 'Moisturizing Top Coat') which is applied over the base coat to keep the color in place.
Product description at the back of the box.
Both come in a silver pen-shaped packaging, with the bottom section of the Color Base Coat showing the color for easy shade reference.
Color Base Coat + Moisturizing Top Coat.
There are 20 shades to choose from in the Lipfinity EverLites line, and the one that I have is shade #200 Impeccable. It's a deep, rosy pink with a light mauve undertone.
Color Base Coat #200 Impeccable.
The Color Base Coat comes with a doe-foot applicator. It's easy to apply, and glides on your lips the way lip gloss does. This shade is nicely pigmented, and dries to a velvety, matte finish. If you like your lips matte, you can wear the Color Base on its own. But if you like your kisser glossy and plumped-up, you need to apply the Moisturizing Top Coat, too. It's like a lip balm (think eos Smooth Stick) that you wear on top of (not underneath) the lipstick.
Moisturizing Top Coat.
Make sure the Color Base Coat is completely dry (about a minute or two, depending on how much you apply) before you wear the Top Coat. You'll stain it with color otherwise.

True to its claim, this product does have great staying power - eight hours on my lips and the color is still there even after eating and drinking. And although there were instances when my lips would feel dry after a few hours, reapplying the Top Coat does the trick. :)

Now I'm not really sure where my grandmother bought my EverLites. I'm assuming it's either Walgreens or CVS because those are the drugstores in her area. In eBay, these EverLites sell from $15 up (around Php 671 when converted).

Have you tried this product before? What are your favorites from Max Factor?

I don't think I've ever used an all day lip color but I'd love to try one. I always thought the color would look dry if it stayed on that long but I see that you have a top coat and the color looks amazing on you.
