I was sick the whole of yesterday, and while the rest of me was not so pretty, my nails looked nice because the day before yesterday, I painted the Max Factor Max Effect Deep Mauve Mini Nail Polish on them in time for a get-together with friends.
What Max Factor says:
Each of the 18 vibrant shades in this incredible new range – from Lollipop Pink to Cactus Green – lets your nails become the canvas for a statement. Choose to conform or choose to shake things up. One colour or multiple shades. Nail your look.
I do believe this is my first Max Factor product ever! I received it as part of a gift this past Christmas, but only got to try it recently. I love getting nail polishes as gifts and having ‘new’ shades to discover in my stash.
It doesn’t say on the bottle how much product this contains but as it’s a mini bottle it obviously has a lesser amount than regular polishes. I find this size practical for someone who owns many bottles of polish, like me. The handle and brush of it are small and short too, but I find it okay and not hard to use.
I checked online for the price of the Max Factor Max Effect Mini Nail Polishes and found that they’re PhP 175 each. I think that’s kind of expensive for a mini bottle. Anyways, there are lots of shades of this to choose from which I see whenever I pass by a Max Factor counter at department stores (SM, Rustans, Landmark).
The Max Factor Max Effect Mini Nail Polish in Deep Mauve is a jewel-toned color. It took me kinda long to try it because I thought it wasn’t my kind of shade, but now I don’t know what my kind of nail polish shades are—I like so many! Deep Mauve, in the bottle, seemed like a bit of a matronly color, but on the nails, it’s actually feminine and sexy.
Please excuse the tip wear, I’ve had this on for about 3 days already.
Deep Mauve has a reddish base with very fine purplish reflects. So when I put on the first coat, it mostly looked like a red, then when I did a second coat, which loaded on more of the purply, fine shimmer particles on my nails, it looked more cool-toned and purple, and as a whole I’d say it looks like a reddish, dark mauve.
I like the smoothness of the formula and how it didn’t take too long to dry. On its own, it’s somewhat glossy, but I felt that a glossier finish would suit this color better, so I put on a coat of The Face Shop Top Coat.
- Sexy, pretty color.
- Smooth formula.
- Brush is short but not hard to work with.
- It’s easily accessible.
- I find the price kind of expensive for the size of the product.
- The ingredients aren’t indicated on the packaging or website so I don’t know if this is big 3-free.
I was surprised by how feminine, pretty, and sexy Deep Mauve looks on the nails. Do try if you like reds or jewel tones, and if you don’t mind the slightly high price tag for the mini bottle.
