Review - Max Factor Excess Shimmer Cream Eyeshadows

Hi everyone, for this weeks post, I thought I would finally do a much requested makeup product review for you!  And this review is for the Max Factor Excess Shimmer cream eyeshadows.


I first bought one of these back in February, as I wanted something shimmery and long lasting to use for my birthday makeup and I'd already heard a few people rave about these, so I thought I'd give it a try.  I picked up the shade Copper.


As you can see, it is a really gorgeous very pale shimmery bronze that almost has hints of gold in it, it reminds me a little of the Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze but even more shimmery and not quite as dark.


As with all the shades, they apply really smoothly, as they are a beautifully soft texture and yet feel incredibly lightweight, and the pigmentation is amazing!  They blend really easily and glide on effortlessly.  They also build really well but as you seem to get such amazing coverage with just one swipe, I found I didn't really need to layer them up hardly at all.



I loved Copper so much, I couldn't wait to get more shades, so next I picked up Pink Opal, which is a stunning metallic lilac . . .



. . . And Crystal, which is a really beautiful bright silver.

All the shades are of the same soft, light texture and they all have the most amazing shimmer.  I've worn Copper and Crystal but haven't had chance to wear Pink Opal yet, apart from to do the swatches, but they do last and last and last!  I also like adding a dab of a powder eyeshadow of a similar shade just over the top of them, as it not only really makes the colours pop, it also makes them last all day!

I'm really loving these and can't wait to get a couple more of the shades.  There are 6 shades all together, Crystal, Pearl, Pink Opal, Copper, Bronze and Onyx, so I very much think Onyx will be the next one on my list.  It's a beautiful blue shimmery black and would be gorgeous for an eyeliner!  What do you think?


I hope you like this post, please leave me a comment below and let me know if you've tried these yet and which shades are your favourite :-)

Until Next Time Stay Happy
