Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipsticks Review, Photos and Swatches

I really love the (relatively) new range of Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipsticks which come in 15 shades and retail for £7.99.

I have three shades to show you:  755 Firefly, 825 Pink Brandy, 827 Bewitching Coral.

The main idea about this lipstick is that in contains 60% ‘Elixir’ treatment, which includes shea, avocado and aloe butters, and anti-oxidant white tea. As the result, it glides smoothly on the lips and, unlike many lipsticks, is not drying at all. In fact, I would even call it moisturizing.

I am sorry that Firefly looks so used, I completely forgot to take a photo before using it.

These lipsticks give a sheer (firefly) and semi-sheer (PB and BC) but vibrant and buildable colour. Firefly is the sheerest shade and it’s a pretty natural shade for an every day look.

Pink Brandy and Bewitching Coral are bright and juicy shades. In my opinion, they are more  suitable for summer, and would look amazing with a tanned skin.

Here are the swatches with the flash and natural light.

In my opinion, these are amazing lipsticks, especially for the price. I actually plan on getting some darker shades for Winter.

  1. Great review. I bought Pink Brandy and reviewed it when these first came out and I still love it now. Great to perk up your face on a dreary winter day.

    I’m liking Pink Brandy heaps! It’s such a happy color, great for work and at night with heavier eye makeup.
