Review: Max Factor Excess Shimmer

Tuesday, 17 March 2015
When these came out I was really keen to try them and I was lucky enough to receive some samples to test run for you. I love the Maybelline Color Tattoos and I had thought they would be similar but these are actually a lot thinner and more of a silicone gel consistency. The silicone gel doesn't quite set like the colour tattoos but they are very smooth and blendable. I think you could set them even better with a powder shadow or translucent powder over the top. While being quite different I like them a lot. As the name would suggest, they are very shimmery with a semi opaque colour.

The "Pink Opal"shade is a bit misnamed and I would describe it more as a pearlescent lavender shade. As a neutral eyeshadow addict it maybe isn't a shade I would have chosen for myself, it is still gorgeous and great for a little something different. "Onyx" is a shimmery black shade that I used to shade the outer corner for this look but it could be used all over the lid for a more intense night look.

These shadows apply well and even blend quite nicely. They are a lot "wetter" formula than something like the Maybelline colour tatoos but still set nicely and can get a helping hand from powder. Also, a little goes a long way with these and they have amazing payoff. These shades aren't my usual picks but I do really want to try the other gorgeous shades like Bronze (top left) and Copper (top middle) which I have look gorgeous!

Stay Rosy.

  1. I really want to try these, particularly the bronze shade. The formula sounds quite unique, especially on the drugstore scene!

    1. Yeah it really is. It's more of a thinner gel consistency but it is still effective and blends well. I don't have oily lids but it would be interesting to see how oilier girls go with this formula.
