Channel Your Inner Icon With The Max Factor Marilyn Monroe Lipstick Collection

October 14, 2016

When it comes to the perfect red lipstick look, we have to give it to Marilyn Monroe who's pretty much set the bar high. We've come a long way from just sticking with one red lipstick. We've got favourites for our usual complexion, for summer, for red carpet formals, or something office safe.

In the quest for beauty and their mission to make every woman feel beautiful, Max Factor adapts the #MyMarilyn Movement, which supports the belief that every woman is stunning and has the right to look and feel beautiful with the help of makeup. It aims to boost self-confidence and to help them rise up against adversities With this, the #MyMarilyn Movement demonstrates how a little red lipstick can go a long way.



The shades of the collection—all in vibrant color with moisturizing formula, and enhanced with fresh citrus notes and sensuous vanilla undertones for that extra oomph—are made as an invitation for all women to come out of their shells and be more of the woman they are; more confident, more empowered, more daring, and able to embrace and own their #MyMarilyn moment. Who said you can’t be your own star? Revel in the spotlight and have your favorite red with you all the time for those shining moments—all you need is the right shade.
There are four stunning shades available from the collection:

Marilyn Ruby Red, Marilyn Sunset Red, Marilyn Berry, Marilyn Cabernet
  • #1 Marilyn Ruby Red - a gorgeous true red shade inspired by Marilyn and her iconic red lip
  • #2 Marilyn Sunset Red - a beautiful burnt orange, red shade that’s a must-have for those with warm or olive skin tones
  • #3 Marilyn Berry - which compliments pale skin tones with its blue undertones
  • #4 Marilyn Cabernet - a rich, deep red with purple undertones perfect for dark skin tones
Out of the 4 shades, Marilyn Berry suits me best. It brightens up my look without overpowering my other features. I like the formula of this lipstick because it's so comfortable to wear and glides so smoothly on my lips. It's the break I've been looking for from the extra matte lipstick trend.

  28. As seen in your swatches, it is very pigmented. Among the 4 shades, my favorite is #2 Marilyn Sunset Red which compliments warm or olive skin tones. Aside from its beautiful burnt orange color, it makes me look more vibrant. I am confident that it can make me beautiful and comfortable. Bagay rin daw ang orange sa akin sabi ng bestfriend ko. ;)
