Max Factor Elixir Boutique: Smart Make Up
You might have spotted my counter ticking away to the launch of these products; a two in one serum-foundation and ravishing lipsticks. I’ll come back to the foundation more thoroughly in a later post, but initial impressions are excellent. Combining anti-ageing skincare and coverage with SPF15, it’s smart make up packed with soft focus spheres that give a deliciously dewy finish and is perfect for skin showing signs of ageing.
But the lipstick is what is giving the wow factor for me right now. Made with 60% ‘Elixir’ treatment, comprising shea, avocado and aloe butters, along with white tea for anti-oxidant properties that smoothes the surface of the lip in seven days. So, you get to wear amazing, bright, pigment packed lipstick and it makes your lips look better. What’s not to love? There are 15 shades coming, all with the same formula and they had their debut on the A/W catwalks when Pat McGrath, Global Creative Design Director for Max Factor, used them on the catwalks. They’ll be £7.99 each. Swatched here is Ruby Tuesday, a vivid, creamy red that I don’t know if I’m brave enough for, but I know the red girls will absolutely love.
The collection launches in 16 days time!
