Max Factor

eraseThe brand Max Factor was started by a makeup artist for the Russian ballet, Francis Maximilian Faktorowicz  in 1909. His son, Max Factor Jr. continued the company and popularized the terms ‘lipstick’ and ‘eyeshadow’, invented the term ‘make-up’, and helped create the first major international cosmetic business. Max’s Factor’s success came from his work on Hollywood movie sets where he worked with start such as Lana Turner, Rita Hayworth, and Marlene Dietrich. In 1928, he actually received an Oscar for making creating cosmetics that worked well with black aerase 2nd white movies. Some of Max Factor’s other innovative contributions to the industry included lip gloss in 1930, Pan-Cake Makeup in 1937, the first smear proof lipstick in 1940, and the first waterproof cosmetic in 1971. Max Factor didn’t retire until 1973 and his legacy still lives on. Max Factor developed a line of cosmetics just for color television’s needs that is still the standard for TV cosmetics today. His company was sold the year of his retirement and is currently owned by Procter and Gamble. Starting this year, Max Factor cosmetics are unavailable in the United States due to dwindling sales but are widely successful ($1.2 billion in annual sales) in other parts of the world.

Yves Rocher Brush-on Illuminator

eraseWhile we’re thankful that we can use foundation to cover up our imperfections, we were  searching for something that would cover and help our skin at the same time. We love Yves Rocher’s Brush-on Illuminator. This foundation gives a natural, radiant finish.  It contains almond oil to smooth the skin, apricot oil to hydrate, and cornflower water to soften. The retractable brush allows for easy application. We recommend this for women who like a natural look, this product gives light to medium coverage

Wetnwild MegaEyes Defining Marker

eraseSome makeup artists say that the true purpose of eyeliner is to make your eyelashes look thicker – so the actual lines shouldn’t be visible. For those who subscribe to this belief and want a nice clean line on their lashes, the Wetnwild MegaEyes Defining Marker is an eye liner that easily makes neat, natural lines. The formula is a nice hybrid of a regular eyeliner and liquid. As a shortcut to a perfect look we liked applying this liner on first, and then putting on our shadow afterward.

Wetnwild Lash Intense Mascara

eraseIt just goes to show that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a great mascara. Our latest recessionista find is Wetnwild’s Lash Intense Mascara. The mascara brush is very unique; it’s made of rubber with tiny nubs. We were doubtful that we would get results from this strange looking brush, but we were quickly proven wrong. The formula gives excellent volume, and the brush highlighted smaller lashes that we didn’t even know were there.
