This review is for two lipsticks from Max Factor Colour Collections, 825 Pink Brandy and 827 Bewitching Coral.

Pink Brandy is a clear, medium coral, bright in the tube but easy to wear and very flattering on my pale skin and pigmented lips. It has a 50's feel to it that I like.
Bewitching Coral is an insanely bright and strong shade of coral, verging on hot pink - it is quite similar to MAC Impassioned, which is one of my favourite lipsticks, but warmer, more orange and doesn't pack quite as much of a punch as Impassioned does. The colour is anything but subtle, though, and I love both of them.

Both lipsticks are a cream formula that applies rather sheerly, but can be built up for more impact. I find the consistency similar to MAC Amplified Cremes, creamy semi-mattes with a slight sheen, but they are less densely pigmented. The lasting power is good, and I haven't had any problems with bleeding or smudging even without lip liner.

I would definitely buy again. Swatches below.
