Top tips for how to apply
  • 1

    For super smooth lips, exfoliate them gently with a soft toothbrush, moving the brush head in small circles to remove any dead skin. Pat moisturiser on afterwards.
  • 2

    Because this buildable lip colour is subtle, you won’t need a mirror to reapply throughout the day.

Bought this on Wednesday instead of my usual lip finity which comes with the lip gloss. How dissapointed was I? Hardly stayed on for 30 minutes, never mind long lasting. Wish I'dbought the tried and tested instead of wasting my money. Constantly having to renew it. No I wouldntrecommend it or buy again. Did like the colour though !

Just buy it! This is everything I want from a lipstick. Buildable so it's perfect for day and night. Moisturises better than most balms (accredited by a hapy boyfriend who commented on the 'softness' of my lips after wearing for one day) and I can apply at my desk after eating without a mirror and know it will look great! The best thing for me is that I can wear a dark colour with this, i'm really pale so have never been able to get on with dark colours in other lipsticks without looking garish or doll-like. I have the rich chocolate colour and it's AMAZING! I bought on offer with a freebie and would usually find the price a little steep for a small balm/stick. So glad I tried it, I'll buy again and again now and want to try different shades! xx

Finally! A gloss I can use both day and night. During the day I love a nice natural no make up look but at night like most women like a darker lip. The Max lip finity gloss allows me to choose the depth of my color too! Which is what I love best! This gloss also stays on and allows your lips longer than most gloss and doesn't have the extra weight and thickness most long lasting gloss has. My lips can move as freely as they please.

Just bought three of these & I have to say I LOVE them. Being 'of a certain age' I don't like anything too bold or glossy on my lips but I do need a bit of colour. These just feel lovely - light & soothing & no stickiness. The great thing is there's a really good colour pay-off for a balm & you can build it if you want even more. I got the cherry, caramel & coral & they're all super-flattering. I wouldn't dream of wearing coral normally but this looks fresh and stylish without looking as if I've tried too hard. Yes - the colour doesn't last but to me that's outweighed by the plus points.Especially because it's true - you can touch up without a mirror & not end up looking like something out of a horror movie. Just one word of warning - don't rely on the colour charts on the website - check them out instore. The cherry swatch looks positively purple here but in reality it's a (very, very slightly blue-tinged) red.

I bought shade 05 (sumptuous candy) and i was a Little bit afraid it would be a color too pinkish for my skintone, but it wasn't. The color is sheer and buildable depending on how much Product you put on and it glides on like butter. So nice! I like that it feels moisturising and long lasting on my dry lips. It is clear that it is a tinted lipbalm and not a lipstick.

I like this lip gloss as it is easy to apply, no need for a mirror. It is non-sticky, leaves my lips smooth and the packaging is non-bulky. As ever, my problem is that being light olive skinned, there is little colour choice -two out of nine.
