NEW: Max Factor’s Caroline Barnes Launches NUDE Lipgloss Collection

Did you know that Mr Max Factor launched the very first incarnation of lipgloss in the 1920’s? Originally called Lip Pomade, his innovation was used to give actresses on the silver screen super shiny lips. Over 85 years later Max Factor is paying hommage to their original formula with the launch of a new lipgloss collection, named for the original and simply called ‘Nude Pomade.’ Developed with the watching eye of Max Faxtor’s makeup artist Caroline Barnes, the collection consists of four on-trend nude shades for spring that will suit every skintone.

Lustrous Sand works perfectly with a tan and creates soft caramalised lips, Pristine Nude is a staple colour for all skintones and helps to create a healthy glow, Glowing Peach is a perfect holiday gloss and right on-trend for 2014, while Radiant Rose contains accents of champagne for a subtle shimmer effect. The glosses aren’t gloopy or sticky, providing shine and fullness on the lips without feeling heavy. The slim applicator and simple tube ensure these are easy to apply on the go, are perfect for popping in your bag and will take you from day to night with ease. I’ve been using these non-stop over the last few days and they make me look so much healthier than just a slick of lipbalm. Any one of these shades would be a great addition to any makeup bag, and at £7.99 each you don’t even have to wait until payday.

The ‘Nude Pomade’ collection launches into Boots from 19th February priced £7.99 each.

    Amazing introduction to a new product as usual Hayley! These look fab. I've never been into glosses, but these shades may sway me, plus I think the packaging looks pretty upmarket. Thanks for sharing! Shelley

    I think I like the look of Radiant Rose and Glowing Peach best, but I'm just not a lip gloss lover – I hate the sticky feeling! Saying this though, I've had a mini of a Maxfactor one before and it probably was the best one I've used!
