I do love a cream shadow especially when its a long wearing one and you can just apply and go, making your smokey eye an easy one with minimal fuss. I luckily got my hands on two of the Max Factor excess shimmer cream shadows the shades Copper and Onyx and I have to say I really like them.
There are 6 shades in the collection perfect for day to night to wear and can be worn on their own or with other shadows to add the extra pop to the eye. They have a high pigment formula with a shimmer finish lasting up to 12 hours.
I wore the Onyx shade on a night out on my holiday in extreme heat and even had a boogie and the shadow stayed strong. The trick to ensure long wear is add a primer to the lid before applying. You can either add with fingers of a flat brush to get the intensity and then take a blending brush and blend out the edges and wing out if you want a full on smokey eye. I appled on my lids up to the crease because I don’t suit a crazy smokey eye.
The Max Factor excess shimmer shadows are in store now retailing at R129.95 so a great budget buy making your life really a a whole load easier. I can’t wait to go get the bronze shade and compare it to my Maybelline on and on bronze 24hr colour tattoo shadow.
