Yes, the M&S Star Wars Bubbles are definitely meant for kids, but when the new Star Wars movie comes out, I’m betting that a Storm Trooper watching over you in the bath will seem quite, well, normal. And, maybe a bit more normal than a Max Factor Star Wars Lipstick.
Much as I love the film looks created for Max Factor by Pat McGrath, unless you’re really a die-hard Star Wars fan, you’re probably not going to buy a lipstick just because it’s related in some merchandising way to the film. I don’t think this range is going to do what Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction did for Rouge Noir. Or is it? I’m not a Star Wars fan.
Last year, the star of a hit Korean TV show managed to completely eradicate all stocks of YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture No 52 because fans of the show went wild for it when she wore it (it’s actually in dispute whether it really was that lipstick at all) and also inflated the Ebay price to $95. So, it can happen that an on screen appearance just sparks something in women world-wide and all they want is to wear that colour. Only time will tell whether it happens with the Max Factor Star Wars range – I’m really curious to see!
In the meantime, Darth Vader bubbles will do for me! They’re £4.50 each from 10th October.
