Something a bit different this week (for I wore only one lipstick last week (Tom Ford Indian Rose, seeing as you didn’t ask, and I love it), so I’m showing you the lipsticks I’m going to be wearing this week. A little sneaky preview, if you will.
Max Factor have set a bunch of beauty bloggers a lipstick challenge: to wear seven shades of lipstick over the course of a week and see how we get along with them. Long-time readers of Get Lippie will know that this is nothing new round these parts but, after they cheerfully acknowledged the inspiration for the idea, I thought I’d give it a go … nothing if not magnanimous, moi … these are the seven shades of the brand new Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick (which fuses lipstick with skincare benefits) I was given to try:
I do love this elegant packaging, the lipsticks look far more expensive than a £7.99 product, and I love the little coloured panels at the bottom.
And I like the carved bullets too. What I have here are three shimmer shades (English Rose, Angel Pink and Mulberry) and the rest are creams. Here, have a closer look:
|Yeah, I swatched Bewitching Coral before I took the pics, sorry!|
This is a nice selection of shades – the are 15 in the range altogether, and as you can see, they span nudes, corals, pinks, and reds. Of this collection, I know that I’m going to struggle with three (Angel Pink has already been identified as my nemesis) of them, but we’ll see how I get along with the colours next week. Having worn one of them for a few hours already, I know they are very well saturated with colour, and are extremely comfortable to wear, being feather-light and having a balm-ish texture, which is very nice indeed.
Here’s the now-obligatory swatch shot:
I’ll be showing you lipswatches and some more thoughts on the range (and the shades) this time next week. It’ll be the first time I’ve spent a week wearing the same brand of lipstick every day … will my lips survive?
Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipsticks are available now, and cost around £7.99. However, they’re included in the current 3-4-2 offer at Boots at the moment, so now would be a good time to snap some up.
