I am seriously loving the brand new lip gloss formula from Max Factor, Colour Elixir Gloss. Not least because it’s a delight to use, looks amazing on the lips and feels beautiful. But also because the very first collection, called Nude Pomade, has been created by one of my absolute favourite makeup artists and all round gorgeous girl, Caroline Barnes. I actually love her (embarassing I know) and just knew her glosses would be amazing. Enough gushing, let’s see them. 
Here is Max Factor Colour Elixir Gloss Nude Pomade by Caroline Barnes. Keep reading for swatches and lip shots.

The Colour Elixir Glosses are super shiny, moisturising and really comfortable and not even the slightest bit sticky. Just such a perfect texture.

The Nude Pomade collection is limited edition and carries 4 super pretty, wearable nude shades that will pretty much suit everyone. We have Lustrous Sand, Pristine Nude, Glowing Peach and Radiant Rose. Here they are swatched.

I hate seeing all those tiny hairs around my mouth like this but at least you get to see the glosses in all their glory! I really love them. I actually think they give the Urban Decay Naked Glosses (which are amazing) a really good run for their money!
I hope there are future collections from Caroline because I think she has got this one spot on.
