Max Factor Lipstick in Burnt Caramel #745 review & swatches

I'm generally a red lip fan, but I believe every woman needs a selection of nudes for everyday occassions, when intimidating other people with your strong and dominant character embodied in a red lip might not be a good idea (think parents' meeting, think grocery shopping in a village shop). 

The thing with the nudes is that what suits others and is raved about by beauty bloggers may not be your cup of tea. With my pink complexion I struggle hard to find the right shade for me. Those that go well with my skin tone are beiges or browns with pink or mauve undertone. Max Factor  lipstick in #745 Burnt Caramel is one of such shades. 

This drugstore lipstick comes in a classy matte gold packaging with a base that reveals the shade, so if you have more of those lipsticks you can easily pick the shade you want. The bullet is embossed with the company logo, which looks adorable and high-end.

The lipstick is super creamy and offers wonderful coverage. It feels comfortable and moisturising on the lips. The finish is kind of satin, but when applied over a lip liner it looks almost matte.

It's a beautiful, high quality lipstick for about a half of Sephora prices.
