Max Factor Colour Effect!

Oooo Exciting...

Max Factor has launched a brand new range of 38 products called Max Colour Effect. It’s their brightest and most colourful collection of eye shadows, lip glosses and nail polishes.

Here are 3 of their lip glosses:
  • 12 - Sweet Red
  • 10 - Orange Snap
  • 05 - Weekend Spa

The lip glosses are in the squeezy tubes that have a huge resemblance to the Lancome juicy tubes. They smell and taste great and leave the lips looking very glossy with a sheer tint of colour. They feel moisturising and smooth with a similarity to a lip balm. They are not too sticky, but my hair still sticks to my lips when it's windy... Ugh!

  • Weekend Spa is a silver toned pale pink, it applies quite pigmented. It smells fruity, a bit like sweet berries. (My Favourite!)
  • Orange Snap is a copper toned orange with a hint of gold which applies quite pigmented and smells like oranges.
  • Sweet Red is a bright fuchsia pink which applies very sheer and smells like watermelon.

Price: £4.99

I do wish they applied as pigmented as they swatch, that would be amazing! Therefore, I would only recommend these for over lipstick unless your happy with a sheer tint.

Here are 3 of their dip in eye shadows:

  • 07 - Pure Turquoise
  • 01 - Ibiza Sunrise
  • 02 - Bronzed Glow

Price: £5.99

These apply with a slight sheen, however the brown one applies quite matte and the turquoise has quite a bit of glitter.These eye shadows are good for on the go, a bit of mascara with a pop of colour on the lower lash line is a cute look for the summer, I will be chucking these in my handbag!

The trio eyeshadow (07) pictured below is something I would never wear, I found them chalky and not very pigmented on the lighter shades. Price: £6.49

The mini nail polishes are very cute, perfect for traveling. Pictured below is 12 - Diva Pink. It's pretty but I think there's prettier. Price: £3.49

The new range is available from June, 2010.

I have my eye on that pale peachy shade of lipgloss!

Will you be checking this out?

Gorgeous colors!! I am usually drawn more into colors like Weekend Spa but I love how Sweet Red looks on your lips, makes me want to get this color for sure! I wonder if we will get this collection in US? I heard Max Factor will be discontinued in the US, but not sure.

I've seen it in Boots and I wasn't that attracted to it for some strange reason.
I think the e/s are the best bit as they are super rich colours and mainly matte.
I might go for the yellow, green and orange one :-)
I'm surprised by the prices, they're pretty cheap considering how expensive I thought Max Factor would be.

The shadows look nice too!

I hope the formula is better I have owned a few max factor shadows and they are usually too sheer. The shadows in the tubes usually causes fall out I think maybelline had something similiar not too long ago.

These look really pretty! Thanks for sharing the swatches :)
The packaging looks fun, good to see Max Factor have shaked it up a bit. I usually just walk past their stand as it always looks boring.
