Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Sticks

I've been waiting to get these for quite a while (well, since I heard Max Factor was bringing them out), but my local Boots didn't have the shades I wanted, as per usual. But I managed to get them at last and oh my days, they are amazing. Also I really wanted to get a lip product in a pen stick form but couldn't find any I would like, so these little beauties put a big smile on my face. I might just get the rest of the collection since Boots is having 3 for 2 offer. In fact I'm planning a massive haul because they have it on all of the makeup at the moment so you can mix brands and not just items within a specific brand, happy days. Anyway, back to the products. The only worry for me is that they have to be sharpened, they don't have a twist up mechanism. But that's only a small detail and it doesn't bother me too much because they are such good quality. They all have a moisturizing finish with a lovely gloss. Plus they last for ages and the colour you see is what you get. The shades I got are Passionate Red, Subtle Coral and Princess Rose and the red one is my definite favourite. First red I actually like. The sticks are definitely worth their price tag.
Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Sticks: £6.99 (each)

  4. I've been into lip pens a lot lately as I find them much better than lip glosses! Subtle Coral & Passionate Red look so stunning, I hope they're easy to find here in the US!

  10. These look gorgeous, I am trying not to go to boots because of the 3 for 2 offer - I would probably end up spending all of my money!

  23. How do you sharpen them as they are too big for a regular pencil sharpener and the lipstick is quite soft?
