Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Ruby Tuesday 715, and Creme Puff in Translucent

I often bypass Max Factor lipsticks for Revlon’s in Boots, which is a bit rubbish in my part as I’m really quite impressed with this Max Factor Colour Elixir lipstick in Ruby Tuesday 715. Ruby Tuesday is a ‘vintage’ red, with pink/cool undertones. It’s a very moisturising lipstick which unfortunately gives it some problems, especially with being red. It has a tendency to bleed out a bit and it transfers everywhere. Blotting and reapplying helps the longevity of this product. Once it wears off a little bit you’re left with a nice, pinky tint. There’s also a slight scent and taste that might be off-putting for some but it’s definitely not overpowering. It hasn’t stopped me from using it.

While this isn’t a perfect lipstick I do really like it, it’s a great colour and the quality’s good for the price (£7.99). I will be trying some other shades from the range.

Oh Creme Puff I want to like you but I’m just undecided. I blindly bought translucent and well, that was a mistake. It’s too dark for my skin tone, if you’re of mid-tone this would be a great colour for you, but it’s clearly not translucent. Another reason I’m a but weary of this product is its smell. It is HIGHLY scented, which on the one hand is lovely because it reminds me of my gran when I was a young girl. The smell takes ages to settle down. So, if you don’t like scent this is *definitely* not for you. There are positives though: it gives a nice soft focus to the skin with very little product and it also provides high coverage. If you fancy trying this out I’d really recommend having a look at it in store. Again I got mine from Boots for £5.99 

have you tried either of these products?

      it really is, and it looks much more expensive than it is
