NOTD – Max Factor Intense Plum

I mentioned in a previous post (here) that I bought a few Max Factor products and got a free gift box which had a few goodies in.

This is the second nail varnish that was in the gift box – Intense Plum.

This was hard to photograph because without a flash it looks like the above photo, and looks a plum colour.

But in reality the colour is much more like the photo below, brighter and bluer than the reddy plum above!

I like the colour quite a bit and think its very wearable.

It did take a few coats to get it opaque, would probably need 3 maybe 4 which is disappointing as most normally need 2, meaning you’ll use up the bottle twice as fast!

This was definitely a good choice of a colour for a freebie and I was really pleased with it!

It came with a black eyeliner and black mini mascara which are all useable items, sometimes you can get some pretty horrific colours or useless products for free, and this was a definite winner for me!

What do you think of the colour? Would you be happy with this as a freebie?

    I think the colour is great for a freebie 🙂 I would wear it. I agree that it's annoying when the varnish takes so many coats to become opaque, I like my nails to be a solid block of colour!Charlotte

      Yeah solid block is definitely better! I'm not sure I'd buy it because of how thin it is, but it is a beautiful colour 🙂
