MAX FACTOR LAUNCHES IN MALAYSIA WITH A POWERFUL CAMPAIGN, #UNLOCKINGREALWOMEN

One of the most notable icons in the cosmetic industry Max Factor is now available in Malaysia. 
Held at one of the finest heritage building - Lot 10, Jalan Tangsi, the brand celebrated its launch with 
The Max Factor Beauty House pop up, and unveiled its official brand ambassador Lisa Surihani 
 where some 150 guests were invited for an uplifting and inspiring evening of #UnlockingRealWomen.

“We are excited for the arrival of Max Factor in Malaysia after its incredible success in the rest of Asia. 
As a pioneer in the beauty industry, the brand has always played an important role in uplifting women to 
embrace their identity through self-expression. We hope the brand will resonate with women 
everywhere as we believe that every woman should be given the chance to feel empowered”, 
said Pink Fong, Marketing Director at Coty Malaysia.

In conjunction with the launch, the brand also revealed the #UnlockingRealWomen campaign — 
a collaboration with an incredible group of influential women such as Kavitha Sidhu, Ling Oo,  
Raja Nadia Sabrina and Max Factor Malaysia’s newly appointed ambassador, Lisa Surihani.

“Lisa’s personality showcases a connection to the brand that will bring a new spark of inspiration and 
help translate our newly repositioned brand vision. Her life story also relates closely to the 
 #UnlockingRealWomen campaign, which makes this partnership all the more meaningful. 
We are thrilled to have her on board”, said Pink Fong.

Women are incredibly powerful in their own right but are often held to higher standards; 
expected to juggle multiple roles, excel at them all and be perfect throughout — all the while 
putting everything else before them. #UnlockingRealWomen seeks to explore the multiple roles that 
women have in family, society and industry and celebrates their strengths, unique abilities and 
unlimited potential. Ultimately, the campaign is all about celebrating women and their powerful life 
experiences, and a reminder that beauty goes beyond gender roles.

Lisa, Kavitha, Raja Nadia and Ling are the epitome of women who, despite their success, 
have been defined by societal roles and expectation as a public figure, mother and wife. 
 They each have had their own aspirations growing up but due to their responsibilities and family 
commitments, have had to put their ambitions aside.

Lisa has had a successful career in the entertainment industry since young but has always wanted to 
be a dancer; Raja Nadia is a successful blogger and founder of her own fashion label but behind her 
busy lifestyle, she aspires to live a better, healthier life; Kavita’s career took off with her first Milo 
commercial at 15 years old before going to Paris to pursue a modelling career but dreams of becoming 
a singer; while jewelry designer and gemologist Ling worked hard every single day of her life to start 
her own jewelry line but longs to start a family and become the ultimate homemaker. 
Watch the 4 women who live their lives in the public eye unlock their dreams and aspirations to 
those closest to them here.

Max Factor sold exclusively at Watsons Malaysia

makeup artistry to Malaysia and is available in selected Watsons outlet and online stores nationwide.
