QUICK BOOTS HAUL - MAX FACTOR UPPING THEIR GAME - NEW LIPSTICK & MASCARA TO LUST AFTER.

Popped in to Boots as my Boots card point balance have been quite healthy and decided to treat myself, having been so good during December and January :) I walked away with two bits from Max Factor. I must admit, I own very little from the brand anymore. Few blushes (Hourglass dupes) plus the new bits I just picked up makes it appalling for any self respected beauty addict lol. But when a brand launches Marilyn Monroe collection of lipsticks, how could I ever be expected to stay away? Boots had a buy 1 get 1 half price so I walked out with a mascara too, and why not? ;)I won't be reviewing these today. I'm testing them as we speak but my first impressions are so great I just had to show you my new additions very quickly. 





Max Factor Marilyn Ruby Red 1 is directed at dark skin tones, well let me tell you - I am pale as a ghost and I adore the shade :) It's so yummy and makes my lips appear fuller and oh so kissable :) I am a self defined lipstick hoarder so not having at least one of these would be a crime really. I must say, I though of buying them all but only one has really stolen my heart so I exercised my newly found will and only bought one (Am I hearing whoop whoop? No? I should !!!). Line comes with 4 shades, all being directed at different skin tones: pale and dark and cool and warm. I think it's an awesome idea but ladies, don't be discouraged. If you like a shade and it's not supposed to suit you? Who cares - get it :)

My second item is a Max Factor Velvet Volume Mascara. This one is tricky as I hated it when first applied, the brush actually hurt my eyes, it's so spikey. I soldiered through and sat down the next day to apply again (all in the name of beauty blogging heaven I plan to go to one day lol) and my impressions changed. I still think it can actually be used as a weapon, but results are pretty great and mascara doesn't smudge or budge all day. I will be doing a full review once I'm 100% sure what I think about it lol

I am little in love with my mini Boots haul, what do you think ladies? Was I right in taking the plunge and spending some of my hard earned point on these two gems? Sound off in the comments below :)

Thank you for reading,
Love

  2. Lipstick looks great and quite curious about the mascara. Maxfactor mascaras are generally good.

    1. It's been a while for me & Max Factor in general. It looks great when applied, if only I wasn't stabbing myself in the eye in the process :)
