Giveaway: Max Factor Makeup!

*I'm making this post stick, so it will stay on top! Good luck, all!

This is my very first give-away on this blog, so if you've any feedback, let me know!

A while back, I signed up to be a BzzAgent. What that means is they send me cool stuff, and I test it out, and tell people about it.
BzzAgent just sent me this neat box of Max Factor makeup.

From my BzzGuide:

What do you think of when you hear the name Max Factor? For us, before this campaign, it mostly invoked images of Hollywood glitz and glamour — but, we came to find out, we only had it half right!

It's true, Max Factor first earned fame for providing movie stars with makeup essentials, but after almost a century of making women beautiful, it's also become a way to get the inside track on makeup artistry trends in the world of fashion and glamour while also helping women express their own unique and beautiful personalities (you know, what makes you you). Around the Central Hive, we like to think of Max Factor and its brilliant makeup artistry as a beauty-tipping friend who works for Vogue or on the set of Project Runway!

With an extensive line of inventive products in a full range of rich shades and colors – from hot and high-glam to beautifully blended neutrals –Max Factor helps you perfectly capture any look you're going for. Be it business meetings and casual dinners, hot dates and girls' night out or just picking up the kids from school, Max Factor has you covered, sun up to sun down (or sun up to sun up, if that's your thing).

With Lipfinity Lipcolor, you get long-wearing hot, high-glam color that stays with you all day (and into the night). Apply the long-lasting color once for up to 16 hours of color and refresh the shine with the Moisturizing Top Coat as often as you like.

Max Factor's new ColorGenius Mineral Blush contains three complimentary shades that can be beautifully blended to create a customized, healthy looking glow for your skin.

What better way to perfectly apply your ColorGenius Mineral Blush than with the Max Factor Blush Brush? This natural-hair brush gives you remarkable control to blend and apply exactly how you want.

Lash Perfection Volume Couture works with the advanced iFX brush designed to deliver superb volume and lash definition for a look that is big and bold, yet sleek and smooth. We put our old mascaras to the test and were surprised at the results. Discover the difference yourself!

Max Factor make-up is high-quality, without the high-price! You can buy it anywhere, like Wal-Mart or Target, or even their website. Or, you can win it here! I'm giving it to one lucky reader!

What you can win:

1 LipFinity Lipstick in color 016 - Glowing.

1 ColorGenius Mineral blush in color 100 - Roses.

1 Color Genius Blush Brush

1 Lash Perfection Volume Couture Mascara in 801 - Rich Black.


How to enter:

Go to Max Factor's website. Look around, and come back here with a comment, telling me something you learned there, whether it be about a product, a make-up tip, or how to get Carmen Electra's look. This nets you one entry.

For a second optional entry, Blog about this giveaway! Leave a separate comment with your blog entry link, so I can see your blog!

Make sure you leave your email address or some way of contacting you if you win. If after 3 days of my contacting you, you haven't claimed it, I'll draw a new name.

This contest runs through Midnight (okay, 11:59pm) pacific time, August 30th, 2008. No entries will be considered after that point. This giveaway is only open to residents of the United States, please.

I signed up to BzzAgent 3 years ago and have not received a single campaign. I don't even bother checking anymore, they were suppose to send some sort of starter kit when I first signed up and I didn't get anything. I even emailed them a couple of times to ask them why I didn't get it and why I don't get any campaigns and nobody would reply to me. Yet some people get lots of campaigns...I don't get it!?

I hope you have better luck with them then I did, I was so excited about doing it when I signed up so was really disappointed when it led to nothing.

Leslie said...

you try mine, i'll try yours! good luck!

Lisa@BlessedwithGrace said...

I like the Color Genius blush. It is a neat website. Thanks for the giveaway.

Sierra said...

I learned about No Color Mascara! Never heard of that before! Thanks :)

vmkids said...

the virtual magazine was new to me

traymona said...

Max Factor Lasting Performance foundation is one of my favorite cosmetics. I highly recommend it. They have lots of shades and the name-lasting performance-is not just a comeon. That stuff stays on even through heavy sweating.(I live in Alabama where sweating is just a way of life).
traymona[at]aol.com

I learned that an application sponge will help get a professional look. I am sceptical though!

fidofido said...

When applying mascara, put on a coat and let it dry, then apply a second coat just to the top half to give the appearance of fuller longer lashes. Good luck on your first giveaway!

The new MaxFactor Color Genius face powder has a blend of minerals (they are so popular in makeup these days!) and three shade so they will match your skin tone better.

forgetfulone said...

That Max Factor site takes a long time to load on my computer!

I'm not adventurous enough to try any of their vivid impact eye shadow colors or mascara highlighter, but maybe my skin could use the whipped creme fluid makeup. I need that extra moisturizer.

Thanks for a great giveaway opportunity.

michelle said...

I would like to try toffee shimmer, it looks so similar to what I have in my bag...but like 10 times cheaper!

Tammy said...

I wanted to enter, but I'm from Canada so I'm not eligible. :o(

I have never tried LipFinity before and I hear people raving about it all the time. I would LOVE to give it a try and see what all the talk is about.

Thanks for a fun giveaway!

Stacy said...

I liked the look of the Pan-Stik concealer. It looks great.
hetz-junk(at)hotmail(dot)com

Amanda said...

I liked how they showed different looks and the exact products that they used, but it really would be nicer if they would show more on real models instead of the pencil drawings!!

BloggyFinds said...

Who would of known Carmen Electra used MF! I am getting me some of the Color Genius blush in Roses as well as the pressed powder in light. Oh, also a full, natural hair blush brush.

I also am a Bzz Agent and love being one. I would get more products to try but I have a rather small group of people I am able to bzz with making my reports a bit low. You had a great idea posting it on a blog. Good Going.

Tracy said...

I learned I need to bookmark the swag & scoop page and visit there often! I missed out on a great sweep that's now over!

Hazel said...

I learned that the NEW MAX Factor ColorGenius Bronzer has light-reflecting flamenco gold flecks to create highlights and depth without clogging pores!Now I want to know what a Flamenco is.

Lipfinity is my favorite lipcoloring of all time! It actually lasts! Nothing ever lasted more than three minutes on my lips...but Lipfinity is there for me all day. It is amazing. I wouldn't be without it.

Ok so thanks a bunch for the idea. I did learn something totally useful. To clean a blush brush, just use shampoo & condition. I am off right now to go try it.

miriama said...

I have enjoyed many, many things from bzzagent. They have been a bit slow lately but I can't count the products I have had the pleasure of enjoying and passing onto others.

From Max Factor: Sweep brush across your blush pan and tap off excess, then apply. For a luxe look, clean your blush brush regularly with a mild shampoo and conditioner.

I knew about cleaning the brushes but not with BOTH shampoo and conditioner!

Rebecca said...

Pat McGrath carries up to 15 duffel bags that weigh 75lbs each to do her work! I never knew makeup artists needed that much makeup!

msrodeobrat said...

i like how they have the page where it shows you how to accomplish different looks, thats great for people who aren't really sure how to do things themselves

cirrus1701 said...

For some reason, I just thought of Max Factor as a high end brand that was sold in stores like WalMart, Target, etc. But, I took the time to read about Pat McGrath and was just blown away. The links to the different ways to use Max Factor were outstanding!!

Amy said...

I like to look at Max Factor makeup, but I didn't know much about it until I checked out their website. I learned that their Pan-Cake Water-Activated Foundation doesn't have to be heavy and thick. You apply it with a wet sponge, and you control how heavy or light you want it to be.

vboackle said...

i learned that lipfinity lasts 12 hours.

Deb said...

I'll never look like Carmen Electra, but I was intrigued by Max Factor's NEW Vivid Impact Highlighting Mascara. I never knew there were highlights for eyelashes! Sounds really cool.

Belinda said...

I love the Vivid Impact Eyeshadow Duo MAXeye Shadows. You get two great colors that last a long time.

samf36 said...

I liked the virtual magazine. Everything about their site is very nice.

Lynn H said...

I learned in order to achieve a natural glow, you should blend three shades of blush

donnav said...

If you put your foundation on with a sponge it is easier to make it as heavy or light as you want.

ladyorchid said...

I learn how to get the Naughty or Nice look.

I joined Buzzagent too and all I received was the Aveeno campaign. I would have loved the Max Factor one..bummer!!

Becca said...

I read about the Vivid Impact highlighing mascara. I've never seen anything like it before. It's certainly not for everyday-wear, but it looks like fun. I'd like to try the Burning Bordeaux.

Lipfinity Lipstick last for 12 hours but it is a bit sticky from my experience, but I do adore the mineral make up - covers live a glove without looking heavy!!!!

Lexigurl said...

At 21 I learned valuable tips on putting my blush on. Thank you. Apples. . . huh?

Pink Lemonade Liz said...

Don't you just L.O.V.E. BuzzAgent?? Hmmmm.... how come I didn't get in on the Max Factor one??...Hmmmm....

I've been working with buzzagent for several years now and, although I don't get to do as many campaigns as I'd like to do, I've gotten to try some really awesome products. (My dad is an agent also and even got a free Sonicare Toothbrush to try!).

Hope you have a great turnout for your contest - stop by Pink Lemonade, we're going to be starting a new (huge, big, huge) contest next week - be sure to join in on the fun!

Tamara said...

I didn't know that Max Factor had Make up remover in their prodcut line. Remover for Long-Lasting Makeup Developed especially to help remove water-resistant and long-lasting makeups from the lips and eyes, while helping keep delicate skin soft and smooth.

kaylee8 said...

I learned that brushes should be cleaned regularly with mild shampoo and water - I don't think I have ever even thought about cleaning my makeup brushes - I just buy a new one when I need it!

Julieh said...

I learned that curling your lashes and using 2000 calorie mascara can make your eyes 'pop'!

Bonnie said...

I learned I must get some Lipfinity lip color it will last up to 16 hours, and you can gloss it once in awhile, how cool is that.

Mullane said...

I had no idea that foundation could be applied by a stick, as Carmen's is. I've used liquid and powder, but used a stick only as cover-up. Interesting.

blueviolet said...

Tempting Vixen and Citrine Beads are the lipcolors of choice for Carmen. She also said she always, always does a last minute makeup check just to be sure before she walks in front of the cameras. Smart lady.

I love the Maxeye shadows! My favorite colors would have to be the compass rose. I know that they can be applied dry or wet and that Max Factor makes a special brush called the wet-dry shadow brush to use for the shadow. thank you!

Bet you didn't think you would get so many comments from fellow BzzAgents. I am way behind when it comes to the makeup world so nearly everything on the Max Factor site was new to me. I would love to try out this makeup kit so I hope to be the lucky one to win it from you. I think your blog site it really well done!

I'm certainly not a supermodel, but sometimes I like to use my make-up in a way that will make me look special for some event. The Max Factor site provides tips and guidelines on just how to get that special look.

I learned a lot of makeup tricks from Pat McGrath who is a makeup artist and is featured on the Max Factor website. The best tip she taught me was step by step instructions on how to create a Vera Wang look using Max Factor makeup. I have always loved the designs Vera Wang creates and I thought it would be fun to try out a makeup "look" for myself inspired by Vera Wang! I am so glad I learned about these tips, because you can also learn to create looks inspired by Calvin Klein, Donna Karen, and many others! I truly enjoy experimenting with makeup and I love to constantly reinvent my "looks" and keeping those around guessing what I will do next!

I've been using Max Factor products for years and am impressed with how they keep evolving and making better products. I've not used their concealer before but will have to try it after learning that it has a nice creamy matte finish.
