Free Max Factor Make Up | via Boots | #AW14

Whilst Christmas focuses primarily on gifts for others, sometimes you have to give in and treat yourself to a little something. For my first beauty post, I am sharing with you an amazing Max Factor offer which I picked up today at Boots. You can treat yourself to £80* worth of Max Factor products for less than 50% of the price.

The foundation which I use on a regular basis is Max Factor: Miracle Touch Liquid Illusion Foundation in Warm Almond 45. The creamy texture is perfect for my skin which can be quite dry, it comes with a little sponge which is concealed in the lid and a twist open circle container. Usually, I pick up 3 of these at Boots as they are part of the 3 for 2 offer which is on throughout the year. I went to pick up one today but noticed if you spend over £15 then you are eligible for a free gift worth £31. Each Miracle Touch is £12.99 (11.5g) so I bought two of these for £25.98.

The 'All That Glitters' free gift came in a box which was about the same size as a box of hair dye. The box contained four full size products and a guide from Caroline Barnes, Max Factor Make-up Artist on how to apply the products. 

Item One:
Colour Elixir Lipstick - Cherry Kiss (4g)

Item Two:                                                                     Item Three:
GLOSSFINITY - Raspberry Blush (11ml)                  Wild Shadow Pot - Golden Amazon (2g)

Item Four:
False Lash Effect Mascara - Black/Brown Waterproof (13.1ml)

Caroline Barnes explains that "AW14 beauty is rich in metallics and new shapes and textures." Christmas is a time where you can use a daring set of colours and the products provided allow the consumer to create a high-end look - for free! The golden eye shadow and False Lash Effect mascara create a softer, metallic, smokey eye. 

As I was about to go to the tills with the lovely Max Factor make-up artists in Boots, she explained to me that if I could buy another item, even something for £1 she could give me a free make-up bag too. As a sucker for a bargain I bought a Max Factor Colour X-Pert Waterproof Eyeliner in Black. The wand is the perfect width to create a feline flick without it being too heavy. For just £6.99, it was cheaper than my usual liquid eyeliner.

As I had bought the three items, I was then given a free Max Factor make-up bag which is really deep and has two cute 'X' shaped zips to close the bag. I'm not sure if it will replace my usual cat ears make up bag, but it's definitely big enough for a weekend or overnight make-up bag. 

As we made our way to the tills, I was overjoyed and could not stop telling the Max Factor make-up artist how great the offer was. For just under £33, I was walking away with:

- Max Factor Make-Up Bag
- Max Factor Miracle Touch Foundation x 2
- Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick
- Max Factor GLOSSFINITY Nail Polish
- Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara 
- Max Factor Wild Shadow Pot
- Max Factor Colour X-Pert Waterproof Eyeliner 

... and if that wasn't enough - the lady threw in a Max Factor Travel Make-Up Brush Kit. The kit consisted of a blush, lip, eye, and contour brush - for absolutely free.

I didn't know whether to cry or hug the lady but she has made my whole week with all of these freebies. The total RRP for the 12 items must be around £80* which means I only paid just over 40% of the price for all of these goodies.

I can't recommend heading to the Max Factor counter in Boots enough. I did spend slightly more than I anticipated but the benefits were definitely worth it. I went to the Boots on Market Street in Manchester but this offer is on the website so should be available at most Boots stores across the UK. 

Even if you don't usually wear Max Factor make-up then you can take advantage of this offer by getting some gifts for the family. The 12 items would make excellent stocking fillers or one bulk beauty bundle for a loved one. If you do receive this as a gift, then let's keep it between the two of us about this fantastic offer.

If you have seen any other beauty offers this Christmas, then let me know in the comments below or give the blog a follow for more posts like this.

Until next time,
