Mmmm! MaxFactor Goodies

Max Factor is a brand have dipped into on occasion but have limited experience with. I love their mascaras – 2000 Calorie was a favourite of mine for a long time. I also once had a brief fling with one of their foundations – I remember recording a foundation tutorial with it way back when.

I am happy to be able to explore the bounties of this brand a little more.

24 from False Lash Effect Mascara – This mascara has a built-in primer that wraps lashes. Max Factor is a sister company of the US brand Covergirl – hence the latters infamous Lashblast being the same as the formers False Lash Effect Mascara. I have always been a fan od Max Factors mascara and I’m sure this one will be no different!

I have two of Revlons Flipstick Colour Effects Lipsticks – Bloomy Pink and Salsa Red. They are lip duos. The colours can be worn alone, blended together or used on different parts of the lips – to highlight the plumpness for example. (€11.99) “An innovative double-ended lipstick you mix, match and personalise your own lip colour”.


I have never tried Max Factors nail polishes either so I shall have some fun swatching these.

Right, I’m off to start swatching and testing!

    I LOVE Max Factor’s False Lash Effect – it’s my fave mascara of all!
    I live near Switzerland where they actually sell Covergirl as well, so I got my hands on the version of False Lash Effect as well. I do like it, but it seems to me that the formular is somehow “wetter” than the Max Factor one.

    I’ve also re-discovered 2000 Calorie lately which I used in Secondary a lot.

    Do you like the Flipsticks, Amy? They look like fun to me, but I’m not sure if I should get one as I am eyeing L’oreals Rouge Caresse Lipsticks at the moment…

    I use the nail polishes regularly, I like the size of the bottles because I never get through big bottles but I can’t say they are chip resistant. I usually get about a day and a half out of them before they start to chip but I love the huge variety of colours & I love trying different colours so these are great..

      A day and a half? Uh Oh. I also like the size. Makes me feel guilty when large nail polishes go unloved :)
