Max Factor » Cheeks and Lips.

I really like Max Factor's range. Their False lash Effect is my all time fave mascara, and I really like the creme puff face powder that they do.

I've recently been using some of their newer stuff, one of their lipfinity pens, which is like a lip stain in a felt tip pen, and also a cream blusher pot.

First up, The Lip Tint!
I would say that these are extremely similar to the Lip Markers from the MAC Art Supplies collection.
They Say : Lipfinity Lip Tint Pen has a non-transferable water based formula that doesn't just sit on top of your lips but permeates the upper layers for a stunning kiss-proof effect. And its nifty pen applicator is perfect for precise application so you can build up the colour as much as you dare or keep it light and simple – you're in control!
I love this product. It's so easy to use. I'm always a fan of something that is like a pen (felt tip eye liners anyone?) because it's just like you're drawing it on. I know that sounds lame, but it's more fun and simpler too! The shade 'Pink Princess' is so pretty. Sadly I think my image makes it look a little darker than it is, but it's as close to real as I could get.

You just shake the pen lightly, and colour in your lips. I outlined and then filled in. Don't smack your lips together, let it dry like with a normal lip stain, and once it is dried that's it, It doesn't budge. I ate and drank and it was still in tact. Impressive stuff indeed! I would recommend this, for sure. They're only £7.99 and perfect for popping in your hand bag. Available from Boots.

Next up is one of the Miracle Touch Cream Blushers. I've only ever tried a small sample of one of these that my mum got in a set one year, and I liked. This colour isn't something I would normally wear, but it actually warms up my face nicely. It's creamy, smooth, pigmented and blends really nicely. I wish the pots were a little larger though (they are the size on a standard eyeshadow) because it's difficult to get your brush into the product. I tend to use my fingers with this. The consistency is lovely though and they last pretty much all day if I use a primer on my oily skin. These are £6.99 from here.

What are your faves from Max Factor?
I have a review of their new foundation coming soon, and it's a good one! I love it :)

I have that lip pen and I adore it so much :) also the taste is quite nice, doesn't taste as bitter as some other lip tints I've used! x
