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
Hello, ladies! I hope you are having a great weekend so far! Today I would like to review a False Lash Effect mascara by Max Factor. I find Max Factor mascaras absolutely amazing, and I’ve tried several of them and already reviewed 2 of them for you:
Lash Extension Effect mascara – review
Max Factor 2000 Calorie mascara - review
But back to False Lash Effect mascara:
“Why fake it when you can get a false lash impact with your own lashes? New False Lash Effect Mascara doubles your lash size* with the impact of false lashes without the fuss. It’s this season’s make up artist must have. The secret is in the lash boosting combination of Max Factor’s biggest brush ever combined with patented Liquid LashTM technology. Now with every volumising coat the big brush sweeps right to the tips giving your lashes fullness and head turning attitude. The result is 100% impact. 100% you.”
*thickness volume, appearance vs bare lashes
So this is how the mascara looks like:
I know that so many Make-up Artists and other women love this products so I was very excited to try it myself. I’ve been using it for several months already so it’s time for a review.
When I just opened this mascara I was a bit shocked because of the brush wich was so huge with short bristles around it. I’ve never had any similar brush to this before so it was a bit uncomfortable to use it. But I always say that you have to give each mascara two weeks to make any conclusions. After some time of practice I’ve used to the brush and the results I got really impressed me.

I’ve been using this mascara for a long time already and now I can share my opinion with you.
What I loved about this mascara a lot - is the design. Really, it’s the best design of mascara that I’ve seen in a long time. By the way, this is not only my opinion.
At first I did not like the brush which is very long (especially it was hard to to use it after my favourite DiorShow Unlimited). But you should give each mascara at least 2 weeks to make your opinion about it, I personally don’t remember any that I’ve liked from the very beginning.
So how is this mascara in action?Read More
