Max Factor is Back! -- Double Wing Look 8/7/16

Hello again! I am excited to announce that Max Factor has returned to the United States for a limited time. Working with legendary Pat McGrath, they have created a new limited edition collection. I am extremely pleased and honored to have to been selected to present the collection to you all. Max Factor was one of my favorite brands when I was first starting with makeup. (They had this product called the 3000 Calorie Mascara and it was my favorite. Once I couldn't buy it anymore, I was truly bummed.) As part of this collection, I was sent the Masterpiecemax High Volume & Intensity Mascara, Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Eyeliner, and Simply Nude and Maroon Dust Colour Elixir Lipticks. This collection is available at Amazon,, Walgreens online and in-store, Target, Wal-Mart and CVS Pharmacy. For today's look, I incorporated all the products, along with items I already had in my collection. Plus, I tried out new things, as well. Below you will find photos of the all new items and pictures of the look, too. I hope you guys like the look I created. I did create an entirely different eye look that I have never tried before.

Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Eye Cream - eyes

Max Factor X Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Eyeliner in 01 Velvet Black - upper lash line in wing shape, with added wing for double wing effect (The applicator for this liner is not the type I have mastered. I ended up applying it to a brush to create the design. It has a shiny rich black finish.)
Max Factor X MasterpieceMax High Volume + Definition Mascara - lashes (Love this mascara: it does exactly what I remember the 3000 Calorie one doing, has the versatility to create very natural looking lashes and layered, like today's look, creates fuller more intense lashes.)
