Covergirl and Max Factor have recently released a few new products onto the market and since I'm always on the search for the latest and greatest in beauty, I thought I would try out some new things and let you know my thoughts.

I have had these products for a few weeks now and that has given me ample time to truly test them out and gather my opinion. We are going to be having a look at a new lipgloss range released by Covergirl and new products from Max Factor including eyeliners and a primer.

Covergirl Colorlicious Lipgloss ($16.95)
These two shades are complete polar opposites so you're definitely going to gravitate more towards one. I'm currently loving the deep burgundy colour because I can see it being perfect for once it cools down a bit, paired with some knits. 700 Whipped Berry is a candy coral pink, the perfect shade to put over the top of a nude lipstick to add a bit of colour. 720 Craving Cranberries is much more complex and is a mix of burgundy with a purple sparkle throughout. These are available from Priceline for $16.95 and other Covergirl stockists such as Kmart, Big W, Target and pharmacies.

Max Factor Face Finity All Day Primer
It's great to see that this product has an SPF of 20 because that is a great property to have in daily use face items to keep your skin protected from the sun. As far as it goes as a primer, I enjoy the long wear of this product and it's lightweight feel. I would recommend it as a great everyday product to put underneath your foundation. The consistency is surprisingly thick but leaves a smooth feeling on your skin, the perfect base for foundation to glide over. This product is $31.95 from Priceline here and other Max Factor stockists such as Kmart, Big W, Target and pharmacies.

Max Factor Excess Shimmer Gel Eyeliner
I absolutely love the concept behind this product because it adds a fun variation to your usual bland black gel eyeliner by having glitter mixed throughout. This is the perfect way of adding a different dimension to your weekend eye look and it's as easy as swapping your plain black gel eyeliner with this one. This colour is in 30 Onyx and is a deep black with a multicolour shimmer mixed within it.

My favourite products from these new releases are definitely the Max Factor Face Finity Primer and 700 Whipped Berry Colorlicious Lipgloss.

Thanks for reading!
