Max Factor Colour Effect Flipstick in Bloomy Pink and Salsa Red Review

Hi everyone here is my Max Factor Colour Effect Flipstick in Bloomy Pink and Salsa Red Review!

I have to say how unimpressed I am with this product range. For the price you would pay, these flipsticks are not worth the bother. The idea with them is that you apply the darker colour on the lips and then the lighter colour is used to highlight your lips as you wish. Unfortunately the combinations are like something out of a 5 year old’s idea of sophistication. Salsa red is a combination of red/coral and gold. The coral, however, comes out on the skin as metallic peachy/orange.

This does not accurately show how awful the colours look. But please take my word. The tones do not suit my skin whatsoever. Bloomy pink is slightly better…

That said, I’m still not sold and won’t be wearing them day to day as they are just too metallic and shiny for my liking. The texture is really strange, like a waxy crayon and they smell odd to boot.
Thankfully I bought my flipsticks off a market stall, so I didn’t end up wasting about £7 on each.
I give this product 2/10.
