When the other day I purchased a couple of Max Factor products from Boots I received the Simple Summer Brights set as a gift, which includes four must-have products for summer: a full size Colour Elixir Pen Stick in Foxy Amber (limited edition), a Mini Masterpiece Max Mascara in black, a full size Max Colour Effect Mono Eyeshadow in Creme Champagne and a Max Effect Mini Nail Polish in Deep Coral.
The two most interesting pieces in the box are The Giant Pen Stick in Foxy Amber and the Max Colour Effect Mini Nail Polish in Deep Coral.
Foxy Amber looks like a punchy pink in the pen but applies like a beautiful wash of glossy colour over my lips which looks bright but not overpowering. (Click here for a review of Designer Blossom)
Max Colour Effect Mini Nail Polish in Deep Coral is a beautiful dark orange shade with gold shimmer which looks perfect for summer.
Max Colour Effect Mono Eyeshadow in Creme Champagne is a universally flattering satin fleshy shade which imparts a subtle warm gleam to my eyes making them look brighter.
Last but not least Masterpiece Max Mascara gives volume and definition to my eyelashes thanks to the slim plastic brush with short bristles. It is quite long lasting, even though it tends to slightly flake after a few hours. This mascara offers more definition that the False Lash Effect one (see review here) even though I prefer the latter for volume.
