Hello my lovelies! How is your Summer going? I have been super busy with wedding season, and then had an amazing holiday camping in France with my #GlamFam! Now I am back in Liverpool and have a bad case of holiday blues. 😫
A few weeks ago I downloaded the Influenster app and created an account. They were just about to launch their review program in the UK. You answer survey questions and review products you have used to earn points which qualify you to receive a "Vox Box". Each gratis box contains new products for you to try and review on social media. It's fun and who doesn't love free makeup???
I received my first box on Monday containing three Max Factor Makeup lip products. There is the Universal Lip Liner; a clear liner designed to plump up the lip line and prevent feathering. Also a Colour Elixir Lipstick in Pearl Maron and Honey Lacquer in Honey Rose.
The lip liner is really lovely, it goes on smoothly and doesn't have the waxy feel some clear lip pencils have. I filled my lips in completely as it makes a fab primer!
I love lipstick! I have sooooo many. This lipstick was very nice. Packaging is elegant and looks more "premium" rather than "drugstore". The colour is a gorgeous rich pink with a slight pearl. I usually prefer a semi-matte finish, but this was really pretty. It wore well without drying out my lips.
I used the Honey Lacquer as a topper over the lipstick. The colour is a pale dusky pink. When I swatched it, it did have the semi-matte finish I prefer. As a topper, it didn't really add anything to the lipstick other than filling down the pearl finish, which I liked! I shall try this on it's own this weekend as I am going to Chester Races and think it is the perfect colour for my outfit. Follow me on Instagram for selfies !
I really like these lip products from Max Factor and will definitely check out some other shades. I think I will add a Universal Lip Liner to my kit as well!
