Max Factor 2000 Calorie Waterproof Volume Mascara

published

It's not great. It barely coats the brush therefore numerous applications are required and still with poor results.
Didn't lengthen my lashes at all. Very disappointed in this popular leading brand.

Best mascara you can get!

published

Easy to locate as the brand has remained very similar throughout the year.
This is the best mascara I have ever used and it is a pity most stores don't store it anymore. Never smudge, doesn't clutter on your eyelashes and so easy to use.
It is easy to remove even and the waterproof really works.

Misleading consumer

published

I was drawn to the promotional display in Priceline advertising the miracle Glow Duo. Buy the Miracle Glow Duo and receive a mini primer for free. The assistant advised that there were no primers left and no other free offers available when purchasing this product.

I reluctantly purchased the Miracle Glow Due but felt quite cheated and mislead as a consumer.

So Disappointed

published

After using many Max Factor Products, including primer, I was very disappointed by Smooth Miracle. It just did not last the distance. It felt smooth going on, which was nice, but throughout the day my foundation started to slide and separate. If I tried to blot it just came away. The only reason I even purchased this product was that I have used and loved Face Finity All Day Primer. It was just not available Will NOT be buying this product again.

The ultimate lippy found by accident!

published

I'm always on the lookout for a great lippy; moisturising, a pink/mauve/nude hue that goes with everything. I got the Max Factor lippy in Simply Nude (shade 725) from ebay for $10.79 and it's excellent. Super smooth on lips and comes in a very chic gold case. Love it!

Has been my go to foundation for 30 odd years.

published

Activated with water, the Max Factor pancake make up is the bomb.
You can adjust the coverage and it covers redness and minimises pores.
They repackaged a couple of years ago but looks like they may have pulled the plug on it.
Tragic!!

Awful eyeliner!

published

There were two main things that did not work for me about this eyeliner.
1. Occasionally it was as if it was "dry" and I'd have to press quite hard and go over the area over and over. Ouch!
2. Small bits would break off as I'm applying it. Lost a huge amount of product this way. Also, having crumbling eyeliner stuck in your eyelashes sucks.
I'm going back to my Revlon Colorstay. Never had those issues with them.

Love the foundation and mascara

published

The mascara does not wear off fast. It is not itchy even if i use it for an entire day all through the night. The foundation evens out blemishes and smoothens the face. It tends to mask out even the dark circles as sometimes I don't have the time to dab on on concealer t remove dark circles under my eyes. It is a god product although much more expensive than other local brands.

Max factor clump defy

published

Max factor clump defy in the purple is hands down the best mascara I have ever used. I've tried high end products, but nothing compares to this product. It makes lashes so thick without leaving them clumpy.

Great products

published

I can't even count all bottles, tubes and other containers of useless beauty products I have lying around. I've always had problems finding the right foundation but Max Factor's Facefinity is perfection. I finally found my colour match, and the product has decent coverage and lasting power. It's not too creamy or oily, it's not too mattifying or powdery-like, it's just perfect for my skin. I don't even have to use concealer and it is easy to apply with a brush or fingers. Their False Lash Effect mascara is also ace. It gives volume from the base and envelops and separates each lash for really voluptuous looking eyelashes. No clumps, no smudges. These are definitely my top beauty products.
Great quality products

Review for Masterpiece Max mascara

published

I’ve used many Max Factor products, so I won’t review all of them. I recommend the quality of their lipsticks which have good longevity and they feel comfortable to wear. I have tried most of the Max Factor mascaras, and a few of them sting my eyes – not severely, but just enough to be noticeable. I’ve recently been using Masterpiece Max, and I think it might become one of my favourite mascaras. So far, it hasn’t stung my eyes. Its formula is buildable and I can apply several layers to achieve good volume. I do not like mascaras that have huge brushes, and Masterpiece Max’s brush is a smaller size than many others on the market. I will buy Masterpiece Max again.

Pan Stick Great!

published

I usually always use Napoleon stick foundation but to save money I purchased Max Factor Pan Stick and havent looked back! I like full coverage and Max Factor Pan Stick does it :) Its cheap, smells great and goes on and rubs in quite nice :) Does rub off onto my clothes easy but nothing major, makes my redness disappear and blends in beautifully :)
cheap, smells great, full coverage, looks great :)
Not much foundation in one stick, does rub off onto clothes easily

What a hopeless product, would not buy again

published

I purchased this product (Lipfinity by Maxfactor) as they maintained it would last up to 10 hours not matter what you did - eat, drink, kiss etc., but what did get is a bomber. It does not last, not even one hour! Why pay a price with all the expectations only to find it is absolutely no good! I wish I could get a refund or some compensation for such a loss of good money and expectation. Can anything be done? I would appreciate so comensation.

Expensive and didn't live up to advertisment

Take it back to the shop where you bought it and complain. That's what I did and they gave me my money back. I certainly won't be recommending this product to anyone.

LipFinity Lasting Lip Tint - Doesn't Last!

published

Purchased Lipfinity Lasting Lip Tint today - want my money back! Colour gone in less than 30 minutes, even with no eating, drinking, kissing! Colour bled from edges of lips too. For a 'brand name' costing $20 I expect more! I'm sure my kids' colouring textas would do a better job! Sorry! I give this the Thumbs down! I'll be going back tomorrow to see how I go about getting my money back! I suggest not wasting your time or money purchasing this product.

Doesn't last 1/2 an hour - colour bled! Utterly useless!

Max Factor Lipfinity Lasting Lip Tint Pen

published

The advertising said it was long lasting, kiss-proof etc for several hours. It went on nicely and looked good. But it was TOTALLY GONE in less than half an hour!! That's without any eating, drinking OR kissing! I was very annoyed as it wasn't cheap. So I took it back to the shop where I bought it from and they gave me a full refund (Thank you Priceline!) I would not recommend it at all. DON'T BUY IT!!
The colour.
Didn't live up to the advertising of being "long lasting". Didn't last at all.

Excellent

published

Love the foundations, the eyeshadows.. can't wait to try more products. It's just a really good quality brand that is affordable. I've just upgraded to MaxFactor. Really great range with great colours. Great coverage foundation and so nice goes on like a mousse (colour adapt). Definately one of myf ave brands!
Love the Colour Adapt Foundation - goes on so easily and lasts all day. Such a good quality brand. Also love the eyeshadows - go on easily, lasts long and just overall good quality! Love the lip gloss too. My favourite brand!! Love it.
None - a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

Max Factor Lasting performance Foundatio in Bronze.

published

A fantastic smooth foundation that didn't clog my pores or irritate my extra sensitive skin.
This also found that it last's a good 6-8 hours before I needed to touch it up.
Cheap if purchased on Ebay Australia, with a non caky long lasting look.
Expensive if purchased at a pharmacy.

Questions & Answers

Helen Routledge

Helen Routledgeasked

Love your Max Factor lipgloss, but over the years the colour is deleted & I have to choose another. I have tried ordering it online, but have no idea of what colour is close to mine. The manager of the beauty department from Woolworths suggested I try contacting you in Australia, unfortunately no number available. Any help would be most appreciated.
