Drugstore Discoveries: Max Factor Vivid Impact Lip Color Review & Swatches

May 19, 2009
Max Factor Vivid Impact Lipcolor ($7.99)

Dying for a little splurge but your wallet thinks otherwise? Indulge in some luxe-for-less by checking out Max Factor’s Vivid Impact Lipcolor, available in a designer palette of 20 pure-pigment shades.

I own Vivid Impact Lipcolors in shades 04 Pin Up Pink and 28 Rose Rage, and I must say that while I’d been wanting to try these for awhile as I’d been hearing such good things, I really was surprised by the quality. Max Factors Vivid Impact Lipcolors are gorgeously pigmented with great opacity, creamy, non-drying, and come in a luscious range of bright, fun shades that will make you lips pop.

Shade 04 Pin Up Pink is a pale milky pink that’s a little lighter than what I’d usually go for, but really great paired with a neutral eye or a dramatic smoky look. Rose Rage (28) is an easy-to-wear berry pink that literally goes with any and all looks.

I don’t use many drugstore lip products as I’ve never found any that I’ve particularly liked. They’re usually drying, non-pigmented, have funky flavors, or just don’t come in a particularly exciting range of shades, so Max Factor’s Vivid Impact Lipcolors are a welcome and much-needed addition to my local drugstore makeup aisle. Check them out for yourself! And while you’re at, be sure to test out a few Max Factor mascaras (they’re amazing!) such as their latest 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper Mascara (review HERE).
