Max Factor review 2: Pink. Rose. Coral.

 My recommendation of Max Factor products in ALL Cosmetic Markets CM in Bosnia and Hercegovina.

This post is my 2nd review for Max Factor.
This time I will show you the pink and coral shades of lipsticks and glosses, mascaras and more - I absolutely enjoyed making this post and from now on I will wear pink and coral shades more than often. Lately, I'm a bit tired of the classic pin up look (most of all THE RED LIPSTICK)- so I'm inspired by the 1930's ladies with the gorgeous finger waves and pink lips and nails.
Thank you Max Factor Bosnia & Hercegovina you have sponsored me with these wonderful products!

Hope you will be satisfied again with my review!

Starting with the final looks:

What have I used to achieve this look?

Foundation: Max Factor Smooth Effect Foundation (Creamy Ivory 45)

I'm really surprised by the bad reviews about this product. I find it is a really good foundation. I understand that the commercials and even the name of the product itself could be misleading. This foundation, in my opinion, is only for who wants a light/sheer coverage, a natural finish and a creamy consistency.

If you have major problems or a lot of spots to cover this is not the right foundation. 

Overall I think this is a great product and the thing I like the most is that it gives me a beautiful finish and it looks like I have nothing on.

I'm in the lightest shade (45 creamy ivory) and it's perfect for my skin tone. I don't even use it all over my face if I don't need it.

Mascara: Max Factor Eye Brightening Tonal Black Volumising

Max Factor is  famous for great mascaras so their new Eye Brightening Tonal Black Volumising Mascaras should not disappoint.
I like the idea of eye brightening effect which you should get because of the light reflecting particles and gem-toned colour beads. 

The range includes: Black Pearl for brown eyes, Black Sapphire for blue eyes and Black Ruby for green eyes.
The promo photo actually looks pretty, I like the blue shimmer.

 The brush is quite thin but it applies the mascara with ease and doesn’t leave any clumps. For day time I only use 1 coat but if you want a more dramatic look for a night out you must put 2-3 coat of mascara.
Left my eye with false eyelashes and Max Factor eyeliner here is the link - right my eye with 1 coat of  Eye Brightening Tonal Black Volumising Mascara - I love it, really looks natural for day time.
I have to be honest, for the final look, I'm still using false lashes.


Lipstick: Max Factor Colour Elixir lipstick in Pink Brandy and Bewitching Coral

First of all:
Max Factor lipsticks are always dependable. What you see in the tube is what you get on the lips.
It feels really moisturising on the lips and has amazing staying power. You feel like you're wearing a (strongly) pigmented lip balm - Colour Elixir is so soft, so silky, yet with decent lasting power.

Pink Brandy is a clear, medium coral, bright in the tube but easy to wear and very flattering on my pale skin and pigmented lips. It has a 50's feel to it that I like. Don't know how they come up with the names but this has little to do with pink, it's pure brandy. Definitely a favourite.

Bewitching Coral is an insanely bright and strong shade of coral, verging on hot pink - it is quite similar to MAC Impassioned, which is one of my favourite lipsticks, but warmer, more orange and doesn't pack quite as much of a punch as Impassioned does. The colour is anything but subtle, though, and I love both of them.
On my lips, Pink Brandy lasts a good 3-4, even 5 hours. I don't know how Max Factor have done it - moisturising lipsticks rarely stay put this long - but I applaud them for that.

Gloss: Max Factor Lipfinity Colour & Gloss

Max Factor Lipfinity Colour & Gloss is an innovative double-ended Lipstick, which gives a depth of multi-tonal colour and shine for an eye-catching look that lasts up to 10 hours.
Gleaming Coral 570 and Radiant Rose 510.

I have tried nearly every longlasting lip colour from maybelline to Mac and Max Factor have definately got the formula right!!! It never get chunky or flakey on the lips and lasts ages! Well done Max Factor someone had finally done it right! Thank you!

I'm a big fan of long wearing lipsticks and I think Max Factor was one of the first to introduce this. The trick to long wearing lipsticks to let it dry first and then apply the gloss.

And on my lips:

Nails: Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in two shades

 I wrote about Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in my first review.
The shades are: Cute Coral and Disco Pink.
For the first time in my life I have pink nails.
I love this combination, it is not agressive as red/white.
What do you think of this look? Would you try it yourself?

Hope you enjoyed.
What do you think of all these products?
