Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipsticks - Ruby Tuesday and Pink Brandy Holiday Lips

I took two of the Max Factor lippies I'm reviewing with me to Sorrento and I made excellent choices - Pink Brandy was perfect for day and Ruby Tuesday for night, providing vibrant, moisurised lips all week long.

Ruby Tuesday is intensely red with blue undertones.  You do have to have a touch of the Dita Von Teese to carry it off, but even with my tiny lips I managed to wear it with aplomb.  Anything goes in the Italian sunshine eh?! 

This was taken on the first night before I headed off to bed, so I was feeling pretty wrecked, but Ruby Tuesday brightened me up!

I really adore this lippy and barely had to retouch all night as even when it wore off, my lips were still stained a vibrant red. 

During the day I wore Pink Brandy, a gorgeous light coral pink which looks very natural, and again, takes ages to fade.  Second to Betwitching Coral, Pink Brandy has to be my favourite shade from the seven I'm testing.

In the words of our wannabe Italian Del Boy Irish Bar proprietor, 'Aaappy dayz!!

You can get these lipsticks from Max Factor counters at Boots or Superdrug, or online for £7.99.
