I have already reviewed several shades of Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipsticks in the past and you can see the feature here, and this is the latest addition to the range. Meet 725 Simply Nude – smoky eyes best friend.

The lipstick comes in a gold packaging with a colour matching panel on the bottom.

It is a moisturizing and a fool-proof lipstick formula that glides on easily and  smoothly. Colour Elixir contains shea, avocado, aloe butters, and anti-oxidant white tea so it feels comfortable and non-drying on the lips.

It is really low-maintenance.  I think you could apply it even without mirror, and since it has that “glossy” lightweight texture and finish, it looks good, as it wears off. And this kind of nude  would look nice on a lot of skin tones, as

I am a huge fan of Max Factor’s Miracle Touch Creamy Blush, so I was very excited about the launch of their new blushers – Creme Puff. There are six shades and I was sent three of them (and a new mascara).

Let’s take a look.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes Review  and Swatches

These are multi-tonal blushes which, when the shades are mixed together, give you a gorgeous shade.

The colours that I have are:

  •  Lovely Pink, Use this shade for a hint of pink on fair skin
  • Alluring Rose, A shade with hints of gold colour; beautiful on warmer or tanned skin
  • Gorgeous Berries,  Provides a good pop of colour so works really well on darker skin tones

Last week I was sorting out my nail polish collection, and realized that I never posted about the nail polish (and several other) which I’ve bought over a year ago, and which was a huge  back then.

And I am talking about Max Factor’s Max Effect in 45 Fantasy Fire.

Max Factor Max Effect Nail Polish in 45 Fantasy Fire nail of the day

It is a sheer and very complex blueish purple with reddish shimmer. A total beauty! I even did not paint my nails red this week, just to wear this…

Above you can see me wearing four shades of it. Yes, that is a lot of effort, but luckily those layers are thin and dry very quickly so you don’t have to wait for hours. I have also used

Being a fan of Max Factor I was excited at the opportunity to try their new  Excess Intensity Longwear Liners. After using them for over a month now, I am happy to share my opinion, and show you the swatches of all six shades.

They all come in a nice black tube packaging, and a lid is actually matching the shade of the pencil, which is very handy.  I also like the fact that you don’t need to sharpen these, you just need to twist to get more product out.

As you can see from the photo, the liner are relatively slim, so you can get a precise line, if you wish.

Max Factor Excess Intensity Longwear Eyeliner Review and Swatches of All Shades 3I personally really loved the formula, the pencils are soft and smooth, they don’t drag the skin and glide on easily. The lasting power is also pretty impressive, but I  don’t have oily lids, and the the products usually do stay on me rather well in general.

Besides the staying power, I love the colours, the products live up to their name – Excess Intensity, the shades are very pigmented and look

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
