Max Factor is truly dedicated to understanding the cosmetic needs of women, ensuring all women are able to feel confident and glamorous in their chosen make up look. As part of that commitment, Max Factor recently found that the colour red is associated with strength, motivation and passion; the perfect combination for powerful, glamorous women.

Using Colour Technology, the quartet of shades has been expertly crafted, creating at least one red to suit every woman, each working in harmony with individual skin tones: warm, cool and dark. Using undertones of orange, blue and purple, the shades have been developed to ensure the colour pops and creates a glamorous transformation for every woman. With the right red, women can embrace a bold lip completely personalised to them, helping to add instant glamour to any make-up look.

Marilyn MonroeTM was the epitome of glamour, making red lipstick a must-have beauty staple in the 1950’s. Wearing Max Factor’s ‘Ruby Red’’, she created a statement red lip that, worn with her iconic eyeliner, placed her firmly on the beauty map. Max Factor has embraced this love of make-up and colour and inspired by Marilyn, created one true red for every woman.
Joelle Mardinian, Max Factor Regional Creative Director, believes reds are as important now as they’ve ever been; “I’m an undeniable glamour girl so I love high impact accents of colour, with a slick of red for lips being one of the easiest yet most gorgeously dramatic ways of adding glamour. And with Eid just around the corner, red lipstick is the perfect addition to a festive look. I know some women might hesitate to try a red for fear that it’ll be too bold, but with expert artistry, the Marilyn MonroeTM Color Elixir Collection has a perfect red for every woman in the region looking to spice up their makeup routine for Eid.”
Backstage at Alexander McQueen and Bottega Veneta AW15/16, Pat McGrath, Max Factor Global Creative Director, stained models’ lips with individual shades of red, creating shades of red that were personalised to each girl. She added, “With the Marilyn MonroeTM Lipstick Collection we mixed and matched the range of reds according to skin colour and tone using our ‘Shade’ philosophy (how we see artistry and colour). This takes inspiration from Mr. Max Factor’s ground-breaking principles of colour harmony, seen in his transformation of ordinary girls into the world’s most desirable woman – like Marilyn MonroeTM. So be bold and embrace red! My red is Max Factor Marilyn MonroeTM Collection Marilyn Cabernet.”
