Max Factor Makeup

Max Factor Makeup


Recently I got very lucky that Max Factor sent me a makeup package to try out some of their new products.
I was so overwhelmed with the package they sent me, and I would like to invite you to take a closer look at the products and discover them together with me.

As you can see I got a box not only filled with makeup, there were also cookies included in the shape of makeup (how perfect can the world be :D?)


Max Factor lasting performance

The first product I tried out are the Lasting Performance foundations by Max Factor.
These days a lot of women want a foundation that stays perfect during the entire day.
But the misperception frequently exists that a foundation that stays good the entire day often is a foundation that doesn't look natural.

That's where Max Factor steps up the game.
They created a foundation with the 'touch proof' technology,
this means that the foundation stays on perfectly during the entire day, but is will lso look very natural on your skin.

And off course a foundation will be even more flawless and perfect when you use a primer underneath.
I always use the Smooth Miracle primer by Max Factor.
This primer will make your skin look even more smooth than it already is.


max factor creme bronzer


Next up is the Max Factor Creme Bronzer.
This bronzer is a bronzer with microgepigented minerals that will fuse perfectly with your skin.
This bronzer will suit every skintype and color and will make you like like you've had a few weeks of vacation in the sun.


max factor 2000 calories


2000 calories mascara, luckily you don't have to eat those calories.
With this mascara you have everything you need in only one product:
amazing volume and an outstanding curl in your lashes.
When you use this mascara you no longer need to use a lash curler because the mascara really gives everything you need to see in your lashes.

What I also like about this mascara is that it is easy to remove. Often a mascara that gives huge volume is a pain in the *** to take off. But not this one.
And if you accidentally get some mascara on your clothes, you just need some water and soap to remove it (HUGE plus for me!)

max factor brow gel

Everything in makeup-world is now about the brow gels.
The Natural Brow Styler is a clear gel to style your precious eyebrows with.
This product will not only make your eyebrow hairs stay in place, it will als provide your eyebrows from a lot more definition.

I see you thinking 'Why should I use a clear gel when there are also colored versions of it?'
Well, when this clear gel dries on your eyebrows, you won't have any color stains which leaves this clear gel looking very natural.


max factor velvet matte lipstick

Lipstick addict as I am, I was very happy with this Velvet Matte Lipstick Collection by Max Factor.
As a woman, you can never have to many lipsticks (or at least that's what I tell my boyfriend :D)

As you might already know from previous blogposts, I have very dry lips.
It is always a struggle to wear matte lipsticks and still keeping my lips hydrated.
When using a matte lipstick, a few years ago I still needed to use lipscrubs, lipbalm,....
But from now on that procedure belongs to the past for me.

max factor velvet matte lipstick

Max Factor Velvet Matte lipstick has everything you need in one product!
It will give your lips an intense and matte color, but is also contains a soft and hydrating formula.

In this lipstick collection there are 6 colors available.
If you buy more than one lipstick and you don't want to buy as many lipliners.
You can buy yourself the Max Factor Colour Elixir Universal Lip Liner.
This is a lipliner that fits every lipstick color?
So you only need one lipliner for all the lipsticks in your collection.

Here you can see some swatches from all the product I mentioned above.

imPRESS Press-on-Manicure

impress nails


I used to have gel nails, but there were things that I was struggling with when I had them on my nails:
- I get tired of the design within 1 week
- It is no good for your own nails
- When a nail falls off, you need to wait until your next appointment to get your nails fixed

That's why I was in desperate search of some nice nails, that don't have those negative points for me:
Meet imPress nails, the press-on-manicure you can do yourself!


impress nails


I discovered these artificial nails on a press event organized by FS Agency.
There was a man (yes a man) explaining how you can use these nails.
The man got me when he said that these nails can be applied without any glue, 
so these artificial nails won't harm your natural nails.
I got so curious I tried them out on the event itself.


impress nails

How to use imPRESS nails?


In each box comes a 'prep pad', with this pad you can clean your natural nails and remove all the 'grease' that is on them.
Next step is choosing the right sizes of the nails.
Please take your tame for this step as this is really important.
When you choose the nails, just remove the protective plastic foil, put them in place and press for like 30 seconds.
And tadaaa, you got yourself a manicure.



impress nails

On the event the man told me these nails would last for like 2 days. 
I have tried some fake nails before, when I used nails you glue on they only last for 2 minutes XD
So I really was curious and decided to give them a chance.

You know what?
After a week the nails were still in place, amazing!
I decided to take them off because I got tired of the design.
I just soaked my fingers for 20 minutes in lukewarm water, and then I just took my nails of.
I repeated the proces with the prep pad and so one and in half an hour I had a new manicure.


imPRESS Press-on-Manicure

There are a lot of different designs available of these nails.
You can check them out on the imPRESS website.

I was really satisfied with these nails and since the event I've worn them constantly and they always lasted up to a week and even a week a half when I was too lazy to take them of :D
I never lost a nails so I didn't have to do a retouch or anything.

These nails are sold for € 9,99 (cheaper than gel nails right XD)



How do you think about these press-on-nails?
Will you give them a try?

Essence - Back to School/Work Makeup



Essence Back to School


When September is over, almost everybody returned to school or work.
All the students started a new college year, 
all the working people had their holiday and go back to work,...
And that is the reason why Essence created some products that will make you look fabulous!
Just as fabulous to make it seem like you just returned from a holiday.



Essence Back to School

Essence Metal Art Lip & Eye Liner - € 2,99


The first product is the Essence Metal Art Lip & Eye Liner.
This product is ment to create amazing wings and fabulous lips.
As you can guess, this liner can be used on the eyes and lips. 
So this really is a multifunctional product.
The color you see in the picture above is the color '03 Coppy right'.
Off course there are more vibrant colors available of this liner.
I really love the pigmentation of it.
You can see a swatch beneath the following product.


Essence Back to School

Essence Make Me Glow Liquid Bronzer - € 3,59


During holiday we always have that nice glow over our skin that is hard to maintain.
With this liquid bronzer by Essence you can recreate your summer glow in no time.
There are two variations of this liquid bronzer.
The one I got is '20 sun in a bottle', this bronzer gives a summer glow.
The other bronzer available is more satin-rosé to give your skin a soft and subtle glow.

Essence Back to School

On the two pictures here above you can see some swatches of the liner and the liquid bronzer.
I really like both products a lot!


Essence Back to School


Essence Kiss The Frog Lipstick - € 1,99

One of my favourite lip products, are the 'Kiss the...' lipsticks.These are lipsticks that come in a vibrant color, but they won't be as vibrant on your lips.This lipstick reacts to the pH-value of your lips and make the lipstick turn into your own special color.My 'Kiss The Frog' lipstick turned out soft pink and I really like it.
I have written a review about this lipstick before in this blogpost.


Essence Back to School


Essence Holo Rainbow nail polish - € 2,89

Essence will launch 5 different shades with a holographic look and some sparkles,
that will make your nails shine!
The color on the picture above is 01- Hello Holo


Essence Back to School


Holo Correct to Perfect CC Powder Palette - € 3,59

Because of the sad fall weather, our skin might go looking dull and tired.
Redness, dark circles and a pale/dull skintone.
But all these 'imperfections' can be gone in no time with this palette.
What I like about this palette, is that it contains powders and not creams like the most of colour correcting palettes.
The powders are really easy to apply and blend onto your skin.

Green can be used to cover up redness.
Yellow  is perfect to hide purple ( like in dark circles) or bruises.
Purple/Blue can be used to hide unwanted yellow undertone of your skin.
When you have a pale skintone, please don't touch the orange powder.
This one is perfect for darker skintypes to cover up spots or dark circles
.
