I have also checked out Max Factor's New Lipfinity lipsticks and they are gorgeous!! Keep reading for my reviews and swatches! ♥
MAC Rose pigment. This is a rosey pink colour with a gold sheen. Its a very pretty colour but very frosty and it doesn't seem to apply as smoothly as I'd like - kind of similar to how MAC lustre eyeshadows would deposit colour.
Here are swatches of all of them in one photo:
...And now on to Max Factor Lipfinity lipsticks:
When I went to Boots today, I was also able to check out the NEW Max Factor Infinity Lip Pens, and THEY ARE GORGEOUS!! I am definitely picking up one of them. They are smooth to apply, quick to dry and last ages - so much that I was able to take photos of the swatches I made in store when I got back home! These are fabulous dupes of MAC's lip markers they came out with last year. Here are the swatches!
I'm slowly getting into Benefit because of checking out Ai's amazing Benefit collection (which I asked her to blog about & review soon!), Benefit's beautiful packaging, and I'm starting to get bored of MAC. It's just the steep price tag that's holding me back though. Imagine, a MAC blush averagely costs about £17, and if that isn't expensive enough, a Benefit blush costs about £24! Ridiculous.
But anyway, What do you think? Have you tried any of these products? And what are your favourite products from Benefit?? ♥
