Review: MaxFactor Lipstick Colour Elixir in 610 Angel Pink




A while back I wanted to try out one of Max factor's Colour Elixir Lipsticks. I decided on this one - 610 Angel Pink. I was actually after English Rose but they didn't stock it in my local store so I picked this one instead. It is a very lilac-toned pink, as its name suggests it is a very 'angelic' pink, very soft and light. It is a much more frosted lipstick, a few people have compared it to Mac's Angel (I personally don't agree) but I do really adore this colour. Pictures and a photograph of it on the lips are below.





The packaging of the product is very sleek and pretty, the gold bullet sets it apart from other standard black bullets and makes it that little more luxurious. The little square block on the end of the lipstick gives a great swatch of the colour which is very accurate to the actual lipstick colour.
The colour does have to be very built up for the colour to truly show on the lips, but the colour is gorgeous. The lipstick seems to last well on the lips, does have to be reapplied at least once during the day but believe this is great for a 'drugstore' lipstick. 
I adore this lipstick, and have since repurchased this and bought it for a Christmas present for my sister as she often comments on how lovely it looks!
This lipstick retails at £7.99 and can be bought at Boots and Superdrug, as well as online.



What do you think of this lipstick?
Have you tried any of the Maxfactor Colour Elixir Lipsticks?

  2. Ah I have a bright pink lipstick from this range and I flipping love it! I think it's so easy to overlook 'drugstore' ranges, I know I'm completely guilty of skipping straight to MAC and missing out Boots/Superdrug, so often.
