Sure enough, my sample of the Max Factor Giant Pen Stick lives up to the description of being a hint of colour. It’s beautifully glossy and gives a nuance of colour despite the intensity of the shade in the stick. I guess it is like a clear gloss with a fraction of colour; very delicate but just there.

I had to go over this swatch several times to achieve this intensity, and as you can see, it’s a translucent shade with plenty of vibrancy, but subtle it is. Personally, that’s just about right for me – I’m not a bright lippie wearer so I can see I’ll be using this a lot.
