Last winter it was all about the deep berry, deep plum colours, this year it's all about RED!
What a better way to show you why you should wear a red lipstick.....I'm going to be writing a review on Maxfactor's Colour Elixir in colour: RUBY TUESDAY (what an adorable name) I actually love what it's called. It makes the lipstick sound luxurious....ruby tuesday....what do you think?
|Maxfactor Colour Elixire Lipstick Review - Ruby Tuesday!|
I tried this the day after I received it, I kept my eyes simple with a little bit of eyeliner, I always play up my eyes or my lips...NEVER both!
When I applied it the feeling was smooth and nourishing. It actually felt like applying a lipbalm.
I was in love with the colour too, it was a luxurious, rich, deep red, the red that suits all the skintones, the red that makes your teeth whiter and the red that pulls a look together which makes you look and feel gorgeous!
Now was the real test....to face the day ahead and see how long it lasts!!
I cannot help myself and at some point throughout the day will stop off for a coffee or a hot chocolate at either Costa coffee or Starbucks which normally includes a muffin or a panini....bad Layla!
After my drink and muffin I checked my mirror to make sure I hadn't smudged my lipstick resulting to look like the joker from Batman....luckily I hadn't but the lipstick had faded and needed another touch-up.
I don't mind touching up my make-up throughout the day but if you want to apply once, go out and forget about your makeup I would recommend wearing this during an evening or night out as you will check your make-up at some point throughout the night.
I absolutely love the packaging, the gold makes it look really expensive almost like a luxury brand. I also like how the colour is shown in the bottom like a little block of colour (pictured above).
The thing that really stood out and made me think this lipstick was really cool was the design on the actual lipstick....I don't think I've ever seen a lipstick with a design on the side of it. The design is the X from the Maxfactor logo. (Again pictured above)
I'm going to be giving this an 8/10.
It's really luxurious and keeps lips hydrated. The colour does last throughout the day but if you eat or drink coffee like me then you will need to re-touch it to keep it looking good.
This is definitely a must have for the winter if you follow the make-up trends, red is big this winter and teamed with a simple eye liner flick you'll look wonderful!!
Plus this could be a lovely little stocking filler for the make-up lovers!
You can buy this from Boots for £7.99.
Also make sure you check out the Maxfactor website for the latest news on any new products and for more colours.
Let me know what you think.... always love hearing from you!
