Lip Swatch - Max Factor Colour Collections Lipstick pink brandy 825

I'm giving a big thumbs up to this Max Factor Lasting Color Lipstick.

 I chose pink brandy 825 (kind of coral pink color with hint of yellow undertone) Firstly I'm impressed that the colour in the tube actually does correspond to the colour coded label on the bottom which means next time I want to make a purchase I wouldn't feel the need to test it in the shop that would save some time to shop more*winks*
This lipstick was also pleasantly moisturizing and had a nice feel, the moment I applied I knew I didn’t waste my money,.I cannot bear lipstick that is too drying but this felt nice and comfortable, As I have dry lips.. Lipstick is so flattering if it actually suits you. It has a sheen finish, it doesn't feel one bit greasy... It is really easy to apply using the stick or a brush and it really glides across the lips easily its that creamy.
Lipstick comes in a small black twist up lipstick tube. Very stylish lipstick and perfect handbag size!
Max Factor Lasting Colour lipstick has a moist, lip-smoothing formula. One application gives long-lasting, soft, smooth and rich lip colour.
Available in Modernist Pink, Dusky Rose, Rosewood, Raging Ruby, Pink Brandy, Chilli, Maple, Cognac, Amber and Sunbronze...and many other suiting your skin tones Light-Medium-Dark.check out your shade Max Factor online

So I shall be buying another shade or maybe all of them from this range again as I was pleased and boots is currently having Free gift when you spend £15 or more on selected Max Factor. So most probably you would be seeing some new max factor haul on blog.

* I'm wearing my max factor pink brandy lipstick with max factor 330 satin pink Silk Gloss*

I have just recently become interested in coral lippies - it's not a colour I even thought of as something I could wear, but to my surprise it looks gud on medium skin tone.

Price: £7.99 each (Most places sell this product for around £7.50 - £8.00.)
Look & Feel: 5/5
Quality: 5/5
Value: 5/5

What are your favorite corals, tangerines and orange lippies? Let us know in the comments.

Review :Natural Collection blushed cheeks Dusky Pink

What It Is:

Use Natural Collection blushed cheeks to give a natural hint of colour to the cheeks.
Natural Collection is one of Boots' lower-end ranges.

What I Love About It:

 I needed some blusher to give me a bit of color so I could look a bit more healthy and glowy ,To be honest the very first time i bought Natural Collection Blushed Cheeks i thought this probably isn’t going to be good and that it isn’t going to show up. But i was wrong I prefer pink tones as I am medium dark and these tones make me look happy, so I had to choose from. There were 4 shades to choose from - Peach Melba, Rosey Glow, pink cloud  and Dusky Pink. I bought this budget buy blusher in dusky pink.
The blusher is packaged in a small white pot with a clear lid which unscrews, Packaged in a simple no frills circular pot, there is nothing really eye catching about it, but I like it, it's simple and not fussy. It also doesn't include one of those tiny little brushes which are totally useless.Its small and fits in bags, purses and even clutches easily for touch ups
 I would have to describe the blusher as being a fine and light powder; it is fragrance free and dermatologically tested.i have dry/sensitive skin and i have to be very careful with mostly budget beauty products but i was glad as dusky rose didnt bother my skin at all,

The price is another thing to be happy about for less than £2 and didn't end up with me looking like a clown. At the moment they have a 3 for £5 offer on selected Natural Collection so hurry Grab your favourite budget beauty item :)


i love this product, but it has a slight tendency of going cakey on my dry/sensitive skin.You may have different opinion as you may have different skin type so give it a try

Price: £1.99 each
Where From?: from your local boots store OR Boots online
Look & Feel:4/5
Quality: 5/5
Value: 5/5
