Max Factor make up haul

I have another 3 for 2 haul for you guys from Superdrug. I originally went into superdrug to check out the max factor elixir lipsticks as I had heard some good things about them as they are supposed to be really hydrating perfect for this time of year! Then when I saw there was a 3 for 2 on I just couldn’t resist, so I ended  up buying two of their lipsticks and then their mascara.

I will start with the mascara I bought this on a complete impulse I didn’t need it but I thought 3 lipsticks was a bit much, but this is the BEST impulse buy ever. I have never found a Holy Grail mascara and I am always trying new ones and trying to find the perfect one, and I think I have now found THE ONE. Yes I know that’s a big statement to make but I absolutely love this mascara, it volumes’ and lengthens my short eyelashes and makes them just how I want them. Now I will admit I am a real mascara girl and I do like it quite obvious that I have mascara on but not so much that they look clumpy and this mascara is the perfect consistency for this. I will most definitely buy this again; I just can’t believe I haven’t tried it sooner!

Next is the lipstick ‘Dusty rose’ initially when I tried this I immediately thought of Mac Bombshell, but after comparing them Dusty rose is a darker pink whereas Bombshell is a light pink. However both of these lipsticks are frost finishes, and for winter I rather like how a frost lipstick looks. The pigmentation of this lipstick is fantastic I do find it very hydrating and also it photographs really well which is always a plus ;) This has in recent weeks been my go too lipstick and at £7.99 it is such a great lipstick! The only down side is that even though the packaging is sturdy why did they choose the colour gold? I find the gold a bit garish, and it makes the lipstick look grubby but hey ho I can live with that when a lipstick is this great.

The last thing I got was another Elixir lipstick called ‘Bewitching coral.’ Now this is a lipstick that I have heard a bit more about but I have no idea why I bought a coral lipstick in the middle of winter! I am just such a sucker for coral lipsticks, I love them yet don’t wear them a lot only really when I’m on holiday. This is a gorgeous shade of coral, but I know I won’t wear it at all until spring/summer time so I probably would have been better off picking another shade instead!
