Max Factor Colour Elixir Marilyn Berry Lipstick Review & Swatch | Lipstick Monday!

Max Factor Marilyn Berry Elixir Lipstick Review Swatch

Sometimes red is the only lip colour that will do, and today was certainly one of those days! I did not want a statement matte lip, so today was not the day for Ruby Woo or MAC Red.  Instead, I wanted a glossy soft red that was relatively easy to wear.

I decided to treat myself to the Max Factor Marilyn Berry Lipstick and Red Rush Lip Liner when out shopping yesterday.  It was on offer in Boots and I simply could not resist!

The Max Factor Marilyn collection contains 4 reds that make finding your perfect shade so easy as they each are targeted to us girls with a variety of different skin tones. They include orange, blue and purple.  I chose Marilyn Berry as I have cool undertones.  This lipstick is so easy to wear as it is so nourishing.  It contains grape seed and butters that simply melt onto my lip.

First I applied the Red Rush Lip Liner.  This liner is so soft and was easy to use. I applied it by lining first and then shading in the entire lip.  It has a gel like texture which was pleasantly surprising as usually lip liners are quite drying.  Once I had lined my lips I applied the lipstick.  I did not use a lip brush as the shape of the bullet made it easy to apply.

The lipstick lasted a couple of hours before the need for re-application. I am not sure the formula is buildable as it is so sheer and glossy, but this is what appeals to me as sometimes a statement matte lip isn’t always the look we want.

I would definitely recommend taking a look at the Max Factor Marilyn collection.  I will always regret not being quick enough in snapping up the MAC Marilyn Monroe collection so I couldn’t resist investing into this one!

Boots currently have a brilliant offer on this range. The lipstick is priced at £7.99 and the lip liner £4.99, and if you buy one product you get the second half price! There has never been a better time to treat yourself!

Talk to you all soon x

  1. I didn’t realize Max Factor still existed! I haven’t seen it in the US in several years. I need to check out their website, I used to love their matte foundation (this was like 15 years ago though, so I’m sure all of their formulas have changed).

    • CoverGirl is the sister company of Max Factor. A lot of the products are the same, in near identical packaging only in different colours! I discovered this when I became obsessed with CoverGirl Lash Blast mascara and bulk bought whenever I went on holiday to America! I was so happy when I discovered I could buy the same product from Max Factor!

      • Really? I had no idea! I wonder if that was the case way back then, as I know what MF used to have wasn’t the same as CG. I’ll have to look into that, not that it matters now though, but just to satisfy my curiosity. But that they are the same or similar now is good to know!
