Max Factor Nude Pomade Lip Glosses by Caroline Barnes


Max Factor have a new gloss range on the scene, and it pays homage to their original lip gloss, called Lip Pomade.  This modern version comes in a tightly edited (read: small) selection of nude shades, designed to complement every skintone, dreamed up by resident makeup artist Caroline Barnes.


The colours are Glowing Peach, a soft peachy nude; Radiant Rose, a sparkling nude rose; Lustrous Sand, a creamy sandy-beige; and Pristine Nude, a cool toned milky nude-beige.

Lustrous Sand

Pristine Nude
Shade wise, they're all fairly similar, with the exception of Lustrous Sand, which is a more pigmented caramel shade, where all the other shades are pale and milky.  Pigmentation is very light, although given the milkiness to the finish I do wonder if these shades would work on a darker complexion.  On my pale skin they're flatteringly barely-there and milky-soft, with a gorgeously plush texture that's more balm than gloss.  They remind me of Max Factor's old Silk Gloss - I had a ruby red shade I absolutely adored, and it had the same silky, plush moistness that Nude Pomade has.

If you're fond of a nude lip, these lipglosses are a good choice - they're comfortable, reasonably priced at £7.99, and very similar to Urban Decay's latest Naked venture (albeit without the snazzy packaging).  Bear in mind that the shades aren't a million miles from each other - choose one or two at most rather than investing in the whole range.  Find them now at Boots, Superdrug, etc.
