MAX FACTOR MARILYN RED SHADES REVIEW & SWATCHES

Max Factor Arabia marilyn red shades - ruby red, sunset red, berry & cabernet review and swatches by uae beauty blogger dubai makeup artist (1)Max Factor has released an entire collection of Marilyn Monroe inspired red lipsticks. The collection consists of 4 beautiful red shades so every woman can find her one true red, thanks to undertones of orange, blue and purple – my personal favourite is Cabernet red, a glamorous bold, deep red with purple undertones, perfect for darker or brown skin tones. 

There’s a wide colour range so you’re bound to find something you love. The formula is really moisturising and hydrates the lips as you wear them. Grapeseed & avocado butter lends a lightweight, nourishing formula that can be applied semi-sheer or built up for a more intense look. I love the sweet scent and taste, reminds me of those early childhood favourite Cola Jelly Candy.

  • 01 Marilyn Ruby Red is the iconic neutral true red shade inspired by Marilyn.

 

  • 02 Marilyn Sunset Red is a burnt orange based red for warm & yellow skin tones. I think this will be a gorgeous lipstick for the summer months

 

  • 03 Marilyn Berry is a cool toned coral red with blue undertones for pink & pale skin tones. A beautiful, rich deep pink tone which looks a little more berry on the lips. I think this is the easiest of the four to wear, the safest shade I guess.

 

  • 04 Marilyn Cabernet is a deep, purple toned wine red for darker, brown skin tones.  The colour is very glamorous and sophisticated perfect for chilly cold winter nights to a rock a vamp look.

 

With a sheen satin finish, these lip shades are quite versatile, one layer gives an everyday look while 2-3 swatches  intensify the pigment leaving a bold look for evening. The glossy colour doesn’t feather out even without lip liner and the wear time is average at about three hours before the colour fades down into a slight tint, you can always increase the wear with the blotting, another layer & powder trick.

Overall, then, a great collection of reds, particularly at the very reasonable price of AED45 a pop.  Any confirmed red lipstick lover will find a shade to love.
