MaxFactor Gift with Purchase - May 2013

Whilst shopping in Boots yesterday I spotted a fab deal at the MaxFactor counter. If you spend £15 or more you get a free box of goodies. For weeks I've been tempted by the Colour Elixir Giant Pen Sticks and the CC Cream so this was the perfect opportunity to indulge.

I love the crayon style lip products so had to try MaxFactor's offering! I really liked most of the colours but I narrowed my choice down to Princess Rose, a gorgeous baby pink colour filled with lilac and violet shimmer. I'm looking forward to trying this on my lips as it seems lovely! I have just noticed one downside to the product though, it's not a twist up pen so this will require sharpening!

I haven't been too bothered about the recent influx of CC (Colour Correcting) creams to the beauty market but when I swatched this Maxfactor one the other week I really liked it. I bought the shade fair which isn't a perfect match for my skin but it seems to blend out well and the texture feels really light so I have high hopes for this one.

So now you know what I bought, I'm sure you want to see the freebie!


The hair dye style box houses four really nice products:

  • Mini Masterpiece Max Mascara (5.3ml)
  • Limited Edition Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick in Foxy Amber (full size)
  • Max Colour Effect Mono Eyeshadow in Creme Champagne (seems full size)
  • Max Effect Mini Nail Polish in Deep Coral (full size)

I'm not super excited about the eyeshadow but I love the other products and I'm sure all together they will create a great look for Summer. The Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick is such a pretty pinky red colour.

Also included in the box is a little booklet explaining how to use the products to create the look on the box. I'll be looking like Gwyneth Paltrow in no time! (in my dreams...)

I think this offer is in-store only as it doesn't seem to be on the website so hopefully your local Boots stocks MaxFactor so you can pick up this deal.

Are you tempted by this freebie? Let me know if you're a MaxFactor fan and which products are your favourites.


  1. Masterpiece mascara is so lovely!
    The pen stick looks great too.
    I dont get the cc hype either but that looks decent.
