Max Factor Haul

March 16, 2015

For a while now i'd been meaning to pick up a few of the new Max Factor blushers because i'd been reading so many rave reviews about them and being a total blush addict, I of course had to to try them out. On Saturday I popped into my local Boots and it's safe to say I walked out with more than I originally planned.
Initially I popped into Boots just to see what the new Creme Puff Blushers and I also remembered that I needed a new concealer as my current one was on it's last legs, so whilst perusing the Max Factor stand I saw on offer, where if you spent £15 or more, you received a little gift worth over £27 for free! So being the bargain hunter I am, I couldn't turn down that offer.

The two shades of the Max Factor Cream Puff Blush (£8.99) that I picked up were 'Seductive Pink', which is a slightly darker pink/purple shade than 'Lovely Pink', which is more lighter pink with a gold undertone to it. Both of these blushers are very similar to the Hourglass Blushers as they have a lovely irridescent finish to them with a marble like appearance that is lovely. Now I haven't really used them all that much yet, but they weren't what I was expecting formula wise as I thought they were a cream blush but they are somewhere in between a cream and a powder blush, which i've never tried before but so far they seem lovely.

As I also needed a concealer I thought i'd give the Max Factor Mastertouch Concealer (£7.99) as it seemed quite similar to the one i'd been using previously and I liked the look of the applicator. I picked this up in the shade 'Ivory', which is the lightest shade and it's a really good colour match as I didn't test it properly. The coverage of this is great and it's not cakey at all, which is a massive bonus as I can't stand concealers that cake under you eyes.

Now as I mentioned I also got a free gift and within this gift was the Max Factor False Lash Effect 24-hour Mascara (£11.99), which i've wanted to try for the longest time ever and although the brush is rather daunting, it does wonders to your lashes. Also there was the Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick (£7.99) in the shade 'Stardust Pink', which is a lovely nude pink and one that I can actually pull off. Also within the free gift was the Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Varnish (£5.99) in the shade 'Pink'ed' and i'm looking forward to trying this as i've never tried out any nail varnishes from Max Factor before. 

Did you manage to grab this offer over the weekend?

  6. I saw this offer and was ever so tempted, but managed to resist. Now you have me wishing I had made the most of the offer :p! The Cream Puff Blushers look lovely, if they resemble the Hourglass Blushers then they will be in my collection soon :).

  7. Recently MaxMactor is my favourite drugstore make up brand. Colour Elixir Lipstics are used by me every single day! These blushes replace my all time holy grail Milani Luminoso Blush! Very good haul!

  10. I'm never without my Max Factor mascara but I must admit that's the only thing I own from them, perhaps I should branch out a little :)

  11. Just bought one of the Creme Puff blushers last week and so far I love it! The finish is beautiful.

  12. Their mascaras are some of my favourites for sure, and I am sure those blushes are just as good!

    I'm loving the mascara so far, it's just so difficult to remove! xx

  14. Charlotte Morgan17 March 2015 at 09:02

    So nice aren't they, just wish the shade range was a bit bigger as some of the shades don't really show up on me xx

  15. Charlotte Morgan17 March 2015 at 09:02

    I don't think I've owned anything from them before. Love the mascara but it is a pain to remove! xx

  16. Charlotte Morgan17 March 2015 at 09:03

    Yes, I wish I'd tried out some of their products sooner! xx

  17. Charlotte Morgan17 March 2015 at 09:03

    Yes me too, I love the Milani blush but these are just that little bit nicer in formula! xx

  18. Charlotte Morgan17 March 2015 at 09:04

    The lipstick shade is a so lovely seeing as I don't do nude, this is like the perfect nude as it actually suits me! xx

  19. Charlotte Morgan17 March 2015 at 09:05

    No it's lovely, just the right thickness and blends lovely! xx

  20. Charlotte Morgan17 March 2015 at 09:05

    You need to, so good! xx

  21. Charlotte Morgan17 March 2015 at 09:08

    They are lovely! Oh thank you, that's so nice! xx

  22. That's too bad, hopefully they'll bring out new shades soon. I think the current range is a success already, because I've been seeing them everywhere :)

    Yes totally, I guess testing the waters with 'safe' shades was the way to go and then expand later. Love the two shades I picked up tho! xx
