I have to admit I have a soft spot for Max Factor and think their products are underrated, so when they release something new I’m always excited. Their latest offering is the Smoky Eye Eyeshadow, which will be out in September. It comes in six color combinations ranging from natural browns, smokey black and grey to brighter colors like greens and blues. The colors available are:
01 Purple Dust
03 Bronze Haze
04 Onyx Storm
06 Citrus Thunder
07 Indigo Mist
08 Silver Storm
The Smokey Eye Eyeshadows were created to make it easy and quick for everyone to create smokey eyes look, which are always tricky for newbies (I know it took me a while to master the technique!), thanks to two crayon-like precision tips. The pen, in fact, features a rounded head to effortlessly apply the lighter shade on the lid, and a second, darker and tapered, head to define the eye shape.
I love the idea of a pen eyeshadow with two tips and I think the colors are beautiful, but I’m not convinced application will be as easy as Max Factor claims. I tried similar eyeshadows in the past and I’ve always had problems applying and blending the shades, but I hope this time it’ll be different and they’ll work like a charm. But overall, I’m intrigued and when they’re out, I’ll definitely purchase one.
