85 years ago Mr Max Factor created the first ever lipgloss that was used by the screen stars of the 1920s. He named it lip pomade and the rest is history, its become a essential item for our beauty bags and the product we all reached for when testing the makeup waters for the first time.
Max Factor Makeup Artist and UK Brand Ambassador Caroline Barnes has created her first ever collection that pays homage to the Lip Pomade and introduces the latest lip innovation; Colour Elixir Gloss.
Nude Pomade is a limited edition collection of on-trend nude glosses that deliver a high-shine finish without stickiness and leave lips feeling creamy and smooth.
