Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick Challenge: Day 1 - Bewitching Coral

Caroline Barnes, Max Factor ambassador and award winning makeup artist, has set a blogger challenge: wear one of Max Factor's new Colour Elixir lipsticks a day for a week.  Given that I absolutely love lipstick, I couldn't help but want to take part - and I just hope I can manage to take photos every day before rushing out of the house to work!

This is Bewitching Coral, a bright but still wearable coral pink, which pulls a little more reddish on my skin than it looks in the tube.  I chose it because I usually shy away from anything with the word "coral" in the shade name - coral often implies an orangey tone, which generally looks awful with my hair.  This coral, however, doesn't really have too much orange in it at all.

Worn with a touch of bronzer, a dark neutral shadow and lots of mascara, Bewitching Coral makes for a really easy going, polished look.  I like - more than I thought I would!
