I haven’t tried a drugstore brand lipstick in a long time and Max Factor’s Vivid Impact Lip Color made me remember why I should pay more attention to drugstore brands.
With a name like Vivid Impact, you expect the lipstick you are trying to be highly pigmented color color. I was happy to see that this was the case just as I expected. The rich color rivals that of the big department store brands. I tried Max Factor’s Vivid Impact Lipstick in Pinup Pink and even though it appeared to be more on the lavender side on my lips, the color was solid just as I hoped it would be. The lipstick formula itself was very smooth and creamy, it glided on and didn’t dry out my lips at all. I also liked that it left a subtle shine on lips, I didn’t want to ruin it by applying my current favorite gloss with it’s doe foot applicator.
Next time I’m at my local drugstore, I’ll be checking out the other shades in the line. Have you tried this product? Tell us what you think about it in the comments.
