MAX FACTOR MASTER TOUCH CONCEALER-BEIGE REVIEW & SWATCHES

Few days back,i really wanted a new concealer and ended upon buying this!!!

???????????????????????????????

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:Ever wondered how top models keep their skin looking flawless at all times? Tried backstage by professional make-up artists at the hottest catwalk shows,Mastertouch Concealer is a miracle product to give you the expert touch of a professional make-up artist. With an easy-to-apply texture it hides blemishes. It’s all down to a special skin smoothing applicator and light-diffusing creamy formula that makes precise coverage a breeze!

???????????????????????????????

MAKE-UP ARTIST TIP:To really get the most from your concealer try applying it after your foundation and before your powder. Why? The foundation gives the concealer something to cling to and following with powder really sets the look. It’s a real trick of the trade – try it yourself!

PRICE:Rs.705 for 1.5gms

???????????????????????????????

PACKAGING:It comes in a pen shaped packaging which i like a lot.Moreover,the tip is sponge based unlike Maybelline lumi-touch concealer which had bristles.It has a slanted shape at the tip that helps in application.The other end of the pen has a twist mechanism and the clear parts of the packaging show the where the concealer is stored, which is always useful for seeing how much you have left.

But the very first time,i tried to take out the concelear,it literally had to twist at least 40 times.

???????????????????????????????

TEXTURE, FINISH & STAYING POWER: The texture is just Perfect – not too runny or thick, and not too heavy. Lovely, light, creamy consistency which helps in blending(with ring finger-dab,dab,dab)

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

It stays for about 6-7 hours on eyes as i use it under the eye as well as on the lids.I sometimes,use this on certain spots also.Although,it doesn’t provide full coverage in that area but evens out my skin tone.

SHADE:Shade -beige almost matches my skin tone.It is a slight yellow based beige.

???????????????????????????????

  • although ,it helps in concealing under eye areas but very dark circles cannot be dealt with.

RECOMMENDATION:overall,i am loving this and would receommend everybody to try it out.

SHADE:The shade 655 is a pretty mauve with pink undertones.It has golden shimmer and sheen(both) which provides a healthy look to lips.The lipstick is creamy but looks a bit frosty on lips.

???????????????????????????????

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER:The texture is amazingly soft and smooth and glides on easily on lips.The lipstick appears to be having a frost finish but it might be due to presence of the shimmer otherwise it is comfortable and slightly creamy.

???????????????????????????????

It keeps my lips supple and moisturised.Staying power is around 3-4 hours which might be low but the shade is subtle and not loud and bright.

???????????????????????????????

It is pigmented enough to cover slight darker lips.However,i feel that this shade will suit fairer to medium skin tones more.

???????????????????????????????

PROS:

  • Classy and travel friendly packaging.
  • the shade is very subtle.
  • it keeps my lips soft and moisturised.
  • the shimmer doesn’t settle in the lip lines neither it accentuates dry flaky lips.

  • a nice everyday wear shade.

 

CONS:

  • average staying power.
  • expensive
  • might not suit girls with darker skin tones.

MAX FACTOR COLOUR ELIXIR LIPSTICK-730 FLUSHED FUCHSIA REVIEW & SWATCHES

Image

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:For instant fabulous colour and smoother, softer* 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.

*vs bare lips.

PRICE:Rs.750 for 4 gm

Image

SHADE:The shade flushed fuchsia has nothing fuchsia in it.It is a beautiful baby pink with golden micro-shimmer in it that are not visible on lips but impart a gorgeous golden sheen to the lips.It is the presence of golden sheen that this lip colour appears to be having a frost finish.

Image

TEXTURE, FINISH & STAYING POWER:The texture of the lipstick is soft.It applies sheerly on lips which can be built up to medium coverage.This shade is meant for fair skinned girls as it will look ashy on darker skin tones.

The staying power is around 2 1/2 hours after which it leaves a slight golden sheen on lips.This golden sheen or shimmer has a tendency to settle in the lip lines and it can accentuate dry lips too so exfoliation of lips is mandatory.

Image

The finish is semi-frost but it is creamy.This is a very good everyday wear shade but it is a little tricky.It might or might not work for your skin tones so I would suggest trying it out at the counter first.

PROS:

~soft and smooth texture.

~the golden sheen present in it looks very gorgeous on lips.

~the packaging is classy and travel-friendly.

~nice,everyday wear shade.

Image

CONS:

~expensive.

~average staying power.

~the shimmer settles in the lip lines.

~not for very pigmented lips.

~this shade can wash out many skin tones.

Image

RATING:3/5

Image

RECOMMENDATION:The shade is gorgeous and it was a love at first sight but this shade is not meant for everybody.The frost finish is not liked by everybody so i would suggest trying it at the counter first.
