Valentine’s red lip (featuring Max Factor Marilyn Monroe lipsticks)

by ,

Happy Valentines! While you guys are celebrating with loved ones this weekend, I’m working (well someone’s gotta do it). But then every day is Valentines around at ours, right Mr TBI?! Ahem.

Today I thought I’d talk about one of my greatest loves – red lipstick. These beauties are the new Max Factor Marilyn Monroe lipstick collection. As you can see, they’re stunners.

With four shades, there’s a colour to suit everyone.  In the gallery above, I’m wearing No. 1 Marilyn Ruby Red – a bold, true red inspired by Monroe’s original shade.

No.2 Marilyn Sunset Red is a burnt orange for warm skin tones; No.3 Marilyn Berry has blue undertones for cool skin types (moi); and finally, No.4 Marilyn Cabernet is a rich red with purple undertones for darker skin types.

The formulations are beautifully creamy and comfortable to wear. However, you will need to retouch regularly as I didn’t find them that long-lasting. To make it last, I line my lips, blot and re-apply.

Although they might not survive dinner, they’re perfect for doing your Some Like It Hot selfies. Afterall, what’s the point of wearing a red lippy if you can’t spend your days posing, eh?

Will you be trying the new Max Factor Marilyn collection? Have you a favourite Monroe movie?
