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.

Hourglass Femme Rouge Lipstick (luxury)

Revlon Matte Lipstick

I love matte lipsticks, I really do. And I find that these lipsticks by Revlon are pretty amazing especially for the price. Just make sure that your lips are in a nice condition before you use this or any other matte lipstick. To tell the truth, I wouldn’t mind having the whole range.

Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick

Yet another matte and affordable lipstick. I’ve got myself 3 shades and I adore them all. This lipstick is super pigmented and stays on for a very long time, the price is also a bonus. I wish they had the other design but that’s not the most important thing really.
