It’s a small collection which includes only 4 items:
- Rouge Artist Lipstick in Moulin Rouge
- Glossy Full Couleur in Moulin Rouge
- Moulin Rouge False Lashes

I love the design because I can never get enough of red with black. But it looks like a holiday collection to me and the look from the promo image would look amazing for the New Year’s party, don’t you agree?

Here is the detailed information about Max Factor’s brush collection.
Max Factor Tool Expert collection includes six luxurious capra hair makeup brushes, eye lash curlers and eyebrow groomer, alongside precision tweezers and nail clippers and is completed with a luxury crystal nail file. Brushes are made of finest soft capra hair and are used for flawless application of liquid and powder makeup.
Manufacturers Original Additions recommends for all brushes: washing the bristles in warm, soapy water. Squeeze out any excess water and allow to dry naturally.
Makeup artist top tip- ‘Use a quality shampoo and conditioner as the brush is made out of real hair- treat the brush like real hair. I would recommend washing all brushes every couple of weeks.’
Foundation Brush £10.00
Max Factor makeup artist Caroline Barnes advises, ‘Drop a small amount of your foundation on the back on your hand to create ‘palette’ from which you to dab your brush and mix your foundation. Blend your foundation onto your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin, even your eyelids, starting from the nose and working outwards.
Blusher Brush £11.00
Top makeup artist tip: Before applying blusher make sure that you remove any excess colour on your blusher brush. Sweep the blusher across the cheek bones making sure that the blusher extends no further than the centre of the eye and no lower than the base of your ears.
Powder Brush £14.00
Caroline advises, ‘Gently brush the pressed or loose powder all over the face and neck to achieve a natural and light application. When you use a powder brush, the bigger the brush will allow a lighter application of powder to your skin. This is why this brush is perfect for translucent powder in order to set your make up in a very natural way. The Same rule applies when applying bronzer as the effect needs to be soft and gentle.’
Lip Brush £6.00
Essential makeup artist tip: Coat lip brush with lipstick and stoke onto lips, blending into any lip liner. For longer lasting colour blot lips and apply a second coat of lipstick. After use make sure that you remove any excess colour on your lip brush.
Brushes for Eyes
Eye shadow Brush £6.00
For advanced application Caroline states, ‘Before applying eye shadow make sure that you remove any excess colour on your eye shadow brush. Apply colour to eyelids in desired way and gently blend. When using an eye shadow brush first dab the colour onto your eyelid using the brush, this helps the colour sit well on the eyelids then use the tip of the eye shadow brush to blend up into the socket.’
Eye Definer Brush £6.00
For accurate application Caroline recommends, ‘Dampen brush andRead More
One more couture colletion and this time it is Chanel. First of all I have to say that I loved this collection and I also really liked the makeup.
Natural eyes and face and strong deep red lips and nails. Peter Philips says: “We wanted to have one makeup element stand out without taking away the focus from the collection”. I really love such style. Look at the beautiful Natasha Poly and Siri Tollerød.
