In the mood for red lips but not sure which shade to pick? If you, like me, love an easy to wear shade of red which applies in a whim, try MAX FACTOR COLOUR ELIXIR GIANT PEN STICK in DESIGNER BLOSSOM.
In fact this is a universal shade of red, which is neither too warm nor too cool, looks glossy upon application and sets to a medium pink stain after the gloss has worn off (for a stain free result just wear a lip balm before applying the pen stick). It is also very quick to apply because it is a soft crayon with a jelly-creamy texture which does not dry out my lip.
In order to balance the bright lip and complete the look, just swipe a lot of mascara on your top eyelashes only. I used two coats of MAX FACTOR FALSE LASH EFFECT in black, which makes my eyelashes look fuller in a natural way, thanks to the large plastic brush with short bristles. The only drawback of this mascara is that it tends to flake, though minimally, after a few hours.
