All that glitters: Max Factor

Boots and Max Factor ran a lovely promotion in December: with a £15 purchase of Max Factor products you received the All that Glitters box with four full sized products for free.The box contained a False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara in Black/Brown, a Colour Elixir Lipstick in Cherry Kiss, a Glossfinity polish in Raspberry blush, and a Wild Shadow Pot in Golden Amazon.

Despite the name of the box, only one of the products actually contains glitter (just as well, I am not a fan of overly glittery products). This is the Wild Shadow Pot in Golden Amazon, a lovely glittery gold shadow. Unfortunately, it is a little patchy so you have to apply with a heavy hand to get a decent finish.

The lipstick is a great neutral red tone, which should suit many skin tones. A real classic red. It has a nice creamy texture and applies easily. I haven’t put it through a full day yet to see how well is lasts, but my first impressions were good. It survived several cups of tea and a small meal quite well. You’ll see this pop up more often in the coming weeks on the blog.

The mascara is great! I have reviewed (raved about) it previously here, including some pictures of the awesome results. Although brown/black is not a color I would normally choose it looks very natural and great upon application. Finally, I love the raspberry color of the nail polish. I haven’t tried it on my nails yet, though you can see a swatch in the photo below. My other Glossfinity polishes are great quality though, so I am sure this will be equally long lasting.

Boots en Max Factor hadden een leuke actie toen ik begin deze maand in Londen was: bij elke aankoop van £15 aan Max Factor producten kreeg je een All that Glitters set met vier producten gratis. De set bevat een False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara in Black/Brown, een Colour Elixir Lipstick in Cherry Kiss, een Glossfinity nagellak in Raspberry Blush, en een Wild Shadow Pot in Golden Amazon.

Ondanks de naam van de set, bevat slechts een van de producten glitters (gelukkig maar, ik ben niet echt fan van hele glitterige make-up). Dit product is de Wild Shadow Pot in de kleur Golden Amazon, een mooie gouden oogschaduw. Helaas is de oogschaduw wat vlekkerig bij het aanbrengen en moet je flink wat gebruiken voor een goed resultaat.

De lippenstift in Cherry Kiss is een goede neutrale rode kleur die veel mensen mooi zal staan. Een echte klassieke roodtint. De lippenstift voelt zacht aan en is makkelijk aan te brengen. Hoewel ik het nog geen volle dag heb gedragen om te kijken hoe lang het blijft zitten, was mijn eerste indruk goed. Mijn lippen zagen er na een aantal kopjes thee en een kleine lunch nog prima uit. Deze lippenstift zul je de komende weken nog wel vaker voorbij zijn komen op mijn blog.

De mascara is geweldig! Ik heb deze eerder besproken (of misschien accurater aangeprezen) in deze post, met fotos van het resultaat. Hoewel Brown/Black niet een mascara kleur is die ik zelf zou kiezen, staat het heel natuurlijk. Als laatste de nagellak in de superkleur Raspberry Blush. Ik heb de lak nog niet op mijn nagels geprobeerd, maar je kunt de kleur zien in de swatch op de foto. Mijn andere Glossfinity lakjes zijn superkwaliteit, dus ik verwacht dat deze even geweldig is.

        Yup! But you get the chance of a decent sample size only in some selected shops, unfortunately… And if you have a nice SA to talk to… And that’s unfortunate too! There’s a whole discussion we can have about my experiences with SA’s… 😕
        Lots of xx

          Oh, I think we all have our horror stories about SA’s right… I remember being ‘helped’ by someone who tried to make me look a bit more tanned 😦 I spend the day looking like an orange oompa loompa.
          But there are great one’s out there, and they make your day 😀

      It is still displayed on the Boots website, but only while stock lasts! So perhaps check out your local boots or otherwise shop online. It is a great deal 🙂

            I have only ever seen snow once in my lifetime and it’s something I will never forget. The weather is a little bit funny today, actually. It’s sunny and very warm in the sun but there is quite a harsh wind blowing. It was very warm this morning when I was on my jog though. Tomorrow is supposed to be very hot. I hope it clears up soon for you. 🙂

            I can imagine seeing snow for the first time is impressive…drudging though it to the supermarket not so much 😉
            Sounds like great weather: hope you enjoy it 😀

            I did definitely only get to experience the ‘glamorous’ side to snow. 😀 I will have to experience it properly one day. Thank you, Anne! 🙂
