The first thing I picked up was the Excess Shimmer Shimmer Eyeshadow in Copper. This is a lovely pale bronze colour. Although it has glitter in it, the glitter isn't too intense and instead leaves a sheen on the lid. The shadow is very creamy so easy to blend and works well as a base or on it's own. The wear time is also really good, it lasts all day on my lids without creasing or fading.
The other product I picked up was the Creme Puff Blush in Lovely Pink. I've heard such good things about these I was definitely excited to try one. The shade Lovely Pink is a pale pink shade with a lovely shimmer running through it. On the cheeks it leaves a nice pink colour and glow to the skin. It also last well on the skin which makes me want to pick up some more shades.
Onto the free gift. You get four full size products, the first being the False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara in Brown/Black. I've had this before and it's a really great mascara. You also get the Masterpiece Colour Precision Eyeshadow in Night Sky. This isn't a colour I would normally go for but I think it would make a nice base to some taupe shadows.
You get a Glossfinity Nail Varnish in Stay Cheerful which is a bright pink shade with a slight cool toned shimmer running through it. I'm currently wearing this on my nails and it looks so pretty and the formula leaves a nice glossy finish. Finally, my favourite item is the Colour Elixir Lipstick in Scarlet Ghost. This is a pinky, plum shade which is perfect for this time of year. The formula of this feels creamy and slightly sheer so feels very comfortable on the lips.

So those are some recent Max Factor purchases. I love the blush and cream shadow I got on the free gift is too good to miss. The lipstick is a true stand out and is a colour I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this festive season. You also get a £2 off voucher for one of their foundations which i'm tempted to pick up. What are some of your favourite Max Factor products?
