Length: 126:14 minutes
Date of Production: 10/29/2011
Extras: For many, the bonus scene described below in detail will be the best extra, the 24:13 minute scene starring Katie St. Ives and coming from Massive Facials 2. There was also a 12:29 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that included some deleted footage and actress comments, 6 trailers, a pop shot recap, a photogallery, spam, and some website information.
Audio/Video Quality: Massive Facials 4 was presented in a decent 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as released by director Mason for Elegant Angelusing the standard definition MPEG-2 codec with 480 resolution. The camera work was again solid with plentiful lighting to eliminate grain, video noise and shadows so the picture appeared to be in line with her other work to date. Mason has improved her technical skills over time but still relies more heavily on getting the most out of her excellent casts, no major issues here except some quirks on the DVD (my computer hated it halfway into Kagney’s scene around the chapter 60 mark as I tried to get screen captures; my home players showing what looked like a layer change). I saw no compression artifacts though there was about 3.5 Mbps video bitrate but the composition of the camera angles strongly favored the ladies and their well lit bodies. The compositions of the shots helped maximize the potential of the ladies too, rarely relying on extreme close ups all the time as some seem destined to do and the editing by Mason always keeping the pace of the action intact. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English track was pretty basic with little separation or dynamic range yet I could hear the cast well enough in most cases. For those keeping track, the audio was offered in a 256 Kbps offering with a 48 kHz sampling rate, the grunts and groans heard well enough but the music by Freek Van Workum and William Nutsack elevating the proceedings nicely.

Body of Review: Mason is one of the few remaining female directors able to “get it right” these days when it comes to making strokable, hardcore porn, her many titles at Elegant Angel serving as notice to the wannabe types that direct in name only. Her latest title is a blowbang-centric release called Massive Facials 4, showcasing such notables as Lexi Belle, Holly Michaels, Lily Carter, Jessie Andrews, and Kagney Linn Karter. By blowbang, I am referring to the practice where a group of men will be orally satisfied by a woman in a variety of ways, only to received copious amounts of genetic juice plastered on their faces to ensure a glazed donut look. The big selling point this time, aside from the all star cast of ladies that is, was the advertised “first blowbang” status for Lexi, Lily, Kagney, and Holly; each of them embracing the sheer nasty side of such acts better than expected. The company website described the movie like this: “Massive Facials 4 features the hottest porn stars pushing their boundaries! These very dirty girls get covered in cum for your viewing pleasure. Featuring Lexi Belle in her 1st blowbang, Kagney Linn Karter in her 1st blowbang, Lily Carter in her 1st blowbang, Holly Michaels in her 1st blowbang, and Jessie Andrews in her 1st 10 guy blowbang! If you love cum facials it doesn't get any better than this. The award winning director Sam No has put together a blowbang epic. Do not miss!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Lexi Belle, the sexy little babe on the front cover, was up first and after a short interview, she had a tease montage in a red bikini. Her ass has fleshed out nicely over the years and unlike so many of her peers since she joined the ranks in the industry, she looks better than ever rather than shot out and used up, her allure growing in that time. As she walked through the house, she seemed to brace herself for the fun of working with the five guys provided her, her mouth and hands going full bore on the peckers. Lexi’s energy levels and sheer enthusiasm were solid, some of the guys going down on her (Eric John on her snatch and Danny Mountain on her feet for example), a few of the guys like Alex Gonz and Eric John even pounding her pussy briefly. The scene then showed the guys (it looked like another joined late) unleashed their wads of spunk all over her face, Lexi masturbating like crazy to show how turned on she was. The company website described the scene like this: “If Lexi Belle looks more excited at the beginning of this scene than usual, it's because she's about to get a lot more action than her usual scene. In these 31 hardcore minutes, Lexi's the target of many a steaming cumshot, and she came prepared... by showing up buck naked, ready to wear cum all over! The guys gang bang her face, fuck her pussy, and cover here in several ounces of ball butter.”

Scene Two: Holly Michaels, a very sexy little brunette, was up next with a brief interview in the backyard before she was surrounded by a horde of moper meat. The camera was too close this time, the claustrophobic camera angle weakening the impact for me substantially even though Holly was shown giving great throat and providing plenty of energy. This scene was noticeably shorter, the guys did not bang her pussy, and her charisma was not as strong given the manner in which it was captured but it was not bad by any means. It ended when the guys, having already bounced their rods against her face like a drum, rubbed out their loads of population pudding one or two at a time to glaze her thoroughly. The company website described the scene like this: “Holly Michaels is a laid back brunette with a very naughty streak... naughty enough to let an entire house full of guys, manhandle her until she's covered in ball sauce! Enjoy 23 hardcore minutes of group sex as they get her clothes off, and get all her best. She rides face, gives blowjobs to all the guys, and then comes the memorable ending... members, have you ever seen a Bukkake finish with so many heavy cumshots?”
Scene Three: Lily Carter, a very lean and cute young lady who has left a big (positive) impression on the staff at Xcritic, was up next as she showed how excited she was to engage in a blowbang during her opening interview with Mason. There was no apprehension displayed and she clearly looked forward to expanding her porn repertoire, a decidedly smaller crowd of five or six fellows surrounding her, pawing her, and helping her out of her clothing as she slobbed their knobs aggressively. Alex seemed as intent on getting her wet by fingering and eating her as he did in throating her, Bill assisting by using fingers and a wand vibrator to elevate her mood. Once again, her interracial credentials were reinforced too, the manner in which Lily looked up at the guys helping to do likewise with proving her desire to be there. It ended when the men tossed out rounds of genetic juice to her face, some providing more than one wad of spunk from what I could tell. The company website described the scene like this: “Lily Carter loves the attention from all the guys, as she gives an interview and wiggles her petite brunette body, at the beginning of this 24 minute scene. Next we cut to the action: the guys gather around and start molesting her from head to toe, They don't even get her fully naked before she's sucking cock and rubbing her pussy. Lily LOVES giving blowjobs, watch her orgasms while the cumshots hit her face!”
Scene Four: Jessie Andrews, one of the biggest newcomer “names” in porn thanks to her big feature with Elegant last year (“Portrait” was a huge hit), was up next with the intention of breaking free of her reputation as a gal on a pedestal by showing her hard side again. Jessie has already made inroads into this expansion of her porn resume but taking on ten mopes at a time orally is nothing to shake your head at. She called them into the living room and they began undressing her, Jessie providing her mouth as a cock socket the guys messily pounded; a few of them going down on her along the way. I really liked the couple of contextual shots from overhead provided here, the sheer magnitude of her task more readily appreciated as her hand to gland abilities and knob slobbing so actively came into play. The guys totally glazed her face here and she masturbated to completion on the floor once they finished, her visual delight enough to sell her role fairly well. The company website described the scene like this: “Jessie Andrews comes to the set with an attitude we always love to see in an actress: she's out to prove she's more than just hardcore, she's the horniest bitch on the block. She makes her case in this 18 minute gang bang - no matter how many guys crowd around her petite body, she's ready to suck them all! It goes on long enough, a couple guys lay her back so she can get her pussy licked while her throat is fucked.”
Scene Five: Kagney Linn Karter, a busty bombshell dressed in pink bikini undies, was up last in the white room. Kagney has not always lived up to her sexual potential, especially as a contract performer, but her looks and shapely body have kept her many fans happy for good reason. The upside of her work is that when she is into something, she can be a great performer, the gal feeling herself up as she mingled with the guys in bland setting. Her hands came into play and her mouth satisfied them really well, the guys often straddling her face for some love to their balls and the gal using a vibrator to keep herself excited. She was just as diligent blowing the black men, even taking two of their heads in her mouth at the same time, as anyone else, the guys truly plastering her face and upper torso when finishing up delivering their splooge. The company website described the scene like this: “Kagney Linn Karter, that submissive blonde with the big tits, submits her throat to the crowd in this 25 minute blowjob gang bang scene. This isn't Kagney's usual kind of group sex; but she's all alone with about five or six guys, all jostling to get in her mouth. She keeps everyone entertained with oral sex or masturbation. She treats this scene like we let her loose in a room full of her favorite toys!”
Bonus Scene: Massive Facials 2: Katie St. Ives, an exceptionally cute gal with brilliant eyes and nice curves, was up last as she was interviewed in the garden. She then went inside to find ten guys waiting for her, her white shorts peeled off and her blue tank top pulled up over her breasts. Katie worked then men with capable moves, her corkscrew handjobs assisting her mouth movements in giving the guys great pleasure. She did some face sitting and there was eventually some fingering, most of the men looking like they were at the dentist unless she was directly working on them. She was definitely cute and did a mechanically acceptable job in the scene but compared to her peers in the show, she had some polishing up to do before her act would work on the same level.
Summary: Massive Facials 4 by director Mason for Elegant Angel will be yet another “must have” title for fans of the female cast or blowbangs but only Recommended for more general fans of gonzo action thanks to the enthusiasm, energy, and sheer desirability of the cast. The replay value, strokability, and solid technical aspects of this blowbang offering enough to merit extra attention, my own tastes falling elsewhere except for the splendid cast of cuties. In short, Massive Facials 4 proved that some of the ladies here have overcome their previous reputations while others lived up to theirs, a fitting display of cunning stunts for those interested. I did notice that the lack of opening credits seemed to indicate the company moving to a dynamic of making individualized scenes for the web over DVD, if so, they would not be the first company moving in that direction though I hope it is not the case given the quality of their physical media offerings to date.
