There is this thing called Bzzagent, and I am an agent for them. Basically, they give you what they call Bzzkits for the Bzzcampaigns for a particular product, and you are supposed to tell people about the product, and give out coupons, and get feedback to report back to Bzzagent HQ. Sometimes the kits contain samples of the product, and sometimes they just contain coupons. Mike and I have done several, and most of them have been really fun. We've done Listerine whitening strips, Grey Poupon gourmet mustard, Claritin Readi-tabs, Philips-Norelco's newest razor, and now Max Factor make up.
My Bzzkit came yesterday. I'm so excited! I got a blush brush, a tri-color blush, mascara, and some lip color. I've never used a multi colored blush, but I tried it today and it was pretty cool. The colors they sent me were not what I normally would have chosen for myself. The blush was way more natural than I usually go. I usually pick something with a touch of pink in it, and this was mostly browns.
The mascara is black. I've been using Almay's mascara for people with brown eyes, (which means it's purple mascara. explain that one to me) but it is really clumpy. This MaxFactor stuff was great! Even with two coats, it wasn't even half as clumpy as the Almay stuff.
When I put the lipcolor on, however, it was almost orange. I think it is supposed to be a copper color (go figure, because I didn't think I ordered the bronze/orange collection). It looked absolutely hideous on me! I immediately took it off. It came with this moisturizing top coat, and I totally love that, but I'm going to have to go buy a different color so I can see if it really lasts the 16 hours it claims it does.
Has anyone tried MaxFactor? or another brand that they really like? I'd be really interested to know. Not just because I'm doing this Bzzcampaign, but also because I am always looking for a better make up product to try.
