I do word of mouth advertising for a website called BzzAgent. From time to time they will send me products to try out and then I give my opinion on them and share with others as well.
They recently sent me some Max Factor Lipfinity 16-hour lipstick. I love lipstick and I love long wearing lipstick. Most of the time though when you get a longwear lipstick it is a matte finish, which I like but sometimes you want a glossy finish.
I've tried some of the other supposedly long wear lipcolor's that have the gloss to go over it and they did not last that long and the gloss was as gloppy as the lipstick.
The Lipfinity claims it will last for 16-hours, through eating, drinking, even kissing. So when I got it I put it right to the test. I put it on in the early afternoon. Easy application, one minute drying time and then you put on the gloss, which is very light, it's a stick, not a goopy mess like the others. It feels nice on your lips.
I decided to eat lunch, checked my lips after, still good! Drank a lot of water during the day, had a snack and ate dinner. Lip check, after about 6 hours and eating/drinking it started to fade just slightly on the inner most part of the lip. Fiance' comes home work that night. Have to do a little smooching ya know. At this point I've had the lipstick on for about 12 hours and it for the most part was still there but it was worn in a couple of spots. It did not stand up for 16-hours but this was by far the best and longest lasting lip-color I have ever used. I did not do any retouches in that time period, nor did I ever need to put on anymore of the gloss.
If you like longwearing lipcolor I would highly recommend this product. I will be getting a different shade to wear on my wedding day. That's how much I love it and trust in it.
