Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick - I got Mulberry!

Despite lacking the colouring and lip shape to pull off this dark plummy shade, I do love the fact it's called Mulberry!  It's shown up a bit lighter in these photos than it actually appears in the flesh.

While not exactly frosted, it does have a pearlised sheen which brings this shade up to date.  I remember being obsessed with a 17 lipstick of a similar colour when I was about...17! I used to pile on the eyes and the cheeks, but this time round I can just about make this lippy work on me with very neutral eyes and cheeks.







What do you think about dark lips - perfect for chilly Autumn evenings? Or do you feel shades like Mulberry make your lips look smaller?

  4. This is such a pretty colour. I love that it has a glossy sheen to it. I don't think we have Max Factor in Canada.

  6. Well I think it looks lovely with your colouring! It's elegant and adds a nice pop of colour but isn't too fancy, like I feel I could wear this without feeling overdressed (and I *always* feel overdressed in reds)

  7. @Angel - it's actually a lot more wearable than I thought it would be. Burnt Caramel is good for work, but you can have mine if it really suits you.

    @laurenrmilor - if you like the colour I say go for it, because the frosty finish reflects light and makes your lips look that bit bigger

    @JoJo - thanks!

    @FunnyFaceBeauty - I think it may Cover Girl over there? CG Lash Blast is identical to Max Factor False Lash Effect...

    @Eden-Avalon - glad you like it!

    @SilhouetteScreams - that's true, it's not as 'sireny' as a bright red.
