FOTD's: Max Factor Foundation & Lippie's

Well hello gorgeous people. It's the weekend finally, yay :) I was contacted by Ketchum PLEON PR regarding the posts that I wrote on the Max Factor campaigns featured in Company and Cosmopolitan Magazine's. They basically involved Bloggers/Vloggers trying out various make-up looks using Max Factor products. Here is a link to those posts, Link :)

I was offered to try out some Max Factor products by Ketchum PLEON PR and I said that I would be happy to. They sent them to me for free so I thought it would be nice to try the products out and do a review for you. So here are the products.

Now on to my thoughts of the products that were sent to me. 

Max Factor Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 Foundation + Serum SPF 15 - Natural 50 - £12.99

The information:

The silky-soft fluid formula gives effortless coverage of fine lines and wrinkles whilst the serum with SPF 15 works to protect against daily UV damage. The result? A beautiful finish today. A naturally flawless skin for tomorrow.

This foundation is a pump dispenser so you don't use more product than you need to. It has a slightly mousse consistency to it which is very light on the skin even though it is a full coverage foundation. Now with medium/full coverage foundations they usually cling to the dry patches on my face, but this foundation did not. Instead it looked dewy and covered better than any other foundation I have ever used. It also stays put all day long. I wonder if the reason for the dewiness and the way it sits on my skin is down to the serum? I like the fact that this is product is a foundation, a serum and also contains SPF 15. I will be buying this product again as I am so impressed with it. The only thing that is a minor downfall for me is that it highlights the fine lines under my eyes a little more after a few hours wear, but that is something that I can live with as this is my new favourite foundation. I am so happy :) I want to find a decent make-up remover though as it does take longer to take off than any other foundation I have used. This product comes in six shades. I think the shade Natural 50 is a pretty good match for me, but what do you think?

Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick's - £7.99

The information:

For instant fabulous colour and smoother, softer (vs bare lips) lips over time look no further than Max Factor's new Colour Elixir Lipstick. The Elixir formula contains a 60% blend of skin emollients, conditioners and antioxidants including vitamin E, for a visible transformation in the look and feel of your lips. As you apply the Colour Elixir Lipstick, it actively moisturises and smoothes lips. Enjoy rich and gorgeous looking colour on smooth, beautiful lips!

These apply smoothly and are not drying on the lips. The colour obviously wears off throughout the day, but not as quickly as lots of other lipstick's that I have tried. It does not go patchy, but fades all over into a more natural hue on the lips. I especially found this to be true with the shade Burnt Caramel (745). There are fifteen shades to choose from. I have had a look online and there are so many shades that I want to try. I can't wait to pick up some more. Out of the three shades that I have tried above I think Dusky Rose (830) is my favourite.

All of these products including the foundation have a lovely sweet scent to them, but it's not overpowering at all. I did not notice the scents once I had finished applying my make-up.

Here is a link the the Max Factor website, Link :) 

Have you tried this foundation or any of the lipstick's? What are your thoughts? Do you recommend any other lipstick shades from this range to try?

Love to you all
