Products that can simplify a make up routine are always a winner for me. I love spending time and applying my make up but sometimes i just want something quick and effortless but still looks like I've put in a lot of time and effort. Step in, the Max Factor Masterpiece Colour Precision Eye Shadows* (£6.99 each, available here)
Ive been testing these out for a few weeks now and i have to say, i am pretty impressed. They are packaged very similarly to a lip gloss; with the tubed design and a doufat applicator which makes them really easy to apply. I swipe it across the lid then blend it out with either my finger or a fluffy brush and it gives a nice wash of colour to the lids.
I always apply a base underneath so i don't know how well they cope without but with a base (I use Mac Paint Pot in Painterly) i find that the pigmentation is really good and they last really well without creasing. Ive not tried layering them up with other eye shadows so i can't comment on how well that goes because i personally love to wear them alone, with liquid eyeliner and mascara.
They're is five shades in total; they've been selected purposely so that you can change your look to suit your mood.
The shades 'Pearl Beige' and 'Coffee' are the ones i reached for the most, mainly because they are neutral shades but i just find them the most wearable for me. 'Pearl Beige' is a gorgeous beige nude shade with a pearly shine to it - i use this mostly for work as it's such a subtle shade but it brightens up the eyes quite nicely.
'Coffee' is a lovely brown shade, i love wearing this because it gives colour to my eyes but it still looks so natural - this is the product i reach for the most when I'm going out and want to look like I've made a bit more effort without actually making much more effort.
'Icicle Rose' is a frosted baby pink shade, it brightens up the eyes really nicely whilst adding a soft hint of pink the lids. I've not reached for this as much as the other two but i think this will be lovely to wear when I'm on holiday and I'm starting to get a tan, i think it will compliment it really well.
'Star Dust' is a blue toned silver and 'Golden Green' is a khaki shade with a golden undertone; these two I've not reached for as much as others, for no reason other than these aren't shades that i tend to wear.
Max Factor is a brand that never fails to amaze or impress me and they seem to be getting better and better with every product they release. I'm really impressed with the Max Factor Masterpiece Colour Precision Eye Shadows*, they're really affordable and such good quality.
