Max Factor Elixir Lipstick

Max Factor have launched a new range of ‘Elixir’ lipsticks, that are meant to be flattering for all ages but really pampering and especially good for older lips which might need a bit of a moisture boost to keep them looking plump and kissable.
The packaging of these lipstick looks far more luxe than the price – with lovely gold outer casing. Colour indicator bits on the bottom and ‘X’ embossed on the lipstick itself. There are 15 shades at £7.99 each – here are swatches of 7 of the shades that range from pale pink through to deep Mulberry…
L-R: Angel Pink, English Rose, Pink Brandy, Bewitching Coral, Burnt Caramel, Mulberry, Ruby Tuesday
With Flash
L-R: Angel Pink, English Rose, Pink Brandy, Bewitching Coral, Burnt Caramel, Mulberry, Ruby Tuesday

Natural Light
L-R: Angel Pink, English Rose, Pink Brandy, Bewitching Coral, Burnt Caramel, Mulberry, Ruby Tuesday
My favourite colours from these seven are English Rose and Bewitching Coral for day to day and Ruby Tuesday for night. The lippies are nicely pigmented, but still sheer enough you can layer them up and build the colour so it’s more dramatic if you like – or keep it more subtle. 
Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipsticks are available from Superdrug (currently 3 for 2) for £7.99

    Everytime I’ve gone to Boots I’ve always had to talk myself out of not buying English Rose – I think I might just have to buy it now!

    I’m just wondering, is that lipgloss at the bottom of the packaging? If so how do you open them? I’ve got these lipsticks and it’s really difficult to open
