Max Factor Elixir Lipstick - 7 Day Challenge

Max Factor have just launched their Colour Elixir Lipsticks in 15 lovely shades.

When it comes to lipstick, I'm more of a gloss kind of girl. So when Caroline Barnes challenged me to wear 7 different lipsticks over 7 days, I screamed a bit inside. Then I calmed down, looked at the colours and worked out how I was going to do this!

Looking in my diary for the next 7 days, I worked out which ones I could pull off of which days.
My wardrobe is basically all black, so worrying that my lips would clash, wasnt ever really an issue! It was more about slicking on the confidence with the colour to be able to go all day without feeling like a clown.
Introducing the lip stain! Apply the colour, dab off excess, powder, repeat. Perfecto.

Day 1- Mulberry
Lovely berry colour, as you would imagine from the name! Perfect for a winters night out.

Day 2- Bewitching Coral
A pink coral, for me very easy to wear all day. This is a summer night kind of colour for me.

Day 3- Pink Brandy
Possibly my favourite of the colours for wearability, not too offensive!

Day 4- English Rose
A really nice rose colour, with a huge amount of frost! Not a fan.

Day 5- Burnt Caramel
The 90's called and they want their lipstick back. Tip- wear this very lightly with a bronzed glow look!

Day 6- Angel Pink
From the outside, I had bet this would be my favourite. But it has 80's frost written all over it. So much frost infact that it would be called Ice Queen! Worn alone I didnt love it, but a dab of this in the centre of the bottom lip with a gloss works it.

Day 7- Ruby Tuesday
Yes, I saved the red till last, how predictable of me! This is a really nice red, wear it bold for maximum effect.

So the 7 days are over. My faves that will be at the top of my pile are;
Mulberry, Pink Brandy & Ruby Tuesday.

You should definitely check out the colour range for yourself. There are 15 shades in total and priced at £7.99, purse friendly too. They all feel lovely on. Even the daring ones, you can sheer down for a day time look, or pump it up for a night out.
