As I’m sure you know, Emma Holmes was recently crowned winner of the TV show The Face, and part of her prize was a modelling contract with Max Factor to launch their Christmas ad for False Lash Effect mascara (side note: I’m currently using this as my go-to mascara and it’s freakin’ awesome at giving lashes a huge volume boost) of which you can see above. To mark the occasion, Max Factor have a pretty fab Gift With Purchase happening at Boots at the moment, which includes a set of 3 full-sized products worth £30 that you receive with any Max Factor purchases over £15. If you’re stuck on inspiration then here’s where my money would go:
Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick – link
This is Max Factor’s take on the Chubby style lipstick, although this professes to have a high colour payoff. I love the look of the Princess Rose shade, which appears to be a pretty, vinyl pink colour and we all know how I love a pink lip.
Smoky Eye Effect Eyeshadow – link
These are my holiday must-haves – especially the Bronze Haze shade which flatters tanned skin and gives that brilliant “holiday smoke” to eyes; a look you can only really pull off with a bit of colour – as they’re so easy to use and contain two complimentary colours in sheeny textures; you literally just smudge them on and blend them in making them quite possibly the easiest way to achieve a smoky eye.
Liquid Effect Pencil – link
I’m back into eyeliner at the moment, especially in a pencil format, so I’d love to give these ones from Max Factor a go to see how they perform. There’s a good shade selection with six different colours (including the rather crazy looking Green Glow) and I think I’d start with Silver Spark as a more gentle take on black.
The three products you get in the GWP will help you to create the look from Emma’s campaign, and these are:
False Lash Effect Mascara
Glossfinity Nail Polish in Cobalt Blue
Lipfinity in Essential Natural
Let’s be honest, often the shades in GWPs can be a bit rubbish, so I’m pleased to say that these ones are really rather lovely, and I’m even more pleased to say the lovely bods at Max Factor have given me four sets to give away! If you’re planning to take advantage of the Max Factor GWP at Boots then you’ll need to act fast as it’s only available until 30th December 2013. On to the competition!
The usual rules apply and there are four prizes in total. To be in with a chance of winning one check out the Rafflecopter below:
You have until the last day of 2013 to enter…thought I’d say that for dramatic effect. Good luck everyone! xx
