Max Factor in Malaysia
The arrival of Max Factor in Malaysia has been highly anticipated 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.
In conjunction with the launch, Max Factor 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, Marketing Director at Coty Malaysia.
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.
