Guest Review: Max Factor Smoky Eye Effect Eyeshadow by JQ

~Get smoky eyes easily~
Max Factor Smoky Eye Effect in Indigo Mist

"A foolproof new tool that shades, blends and defines your eyes for this season’s sultriest, sexiest looks. Inspired by our international team of make-up artists its double-ended application system has 2 distinctive tips designed to make smoky eyes easier than ever."

How to use
The product has two ends which are labeled step 1 & step 2. Basically apply the end that says step 1 (which is blunt) on the entire eyelid. Then apply the eye labeled step 2 (which is slightly pointier) along the crease and on the lower lash line. You can then use your fingers to pat & smudge so it blends seamlessly.

  • Double ended = more colours to play with
  • Easy to carry pen like applicator
  • Nice colour pay off
  • Creamy texture
  • Blends well

I wouldn't exactly say using this cream shadow sticks are easy to apply maybe because I feel the colours that I got doesn't seem to compliment best with each other. I personally love the blue-ish green colour because it shows up the best and beautiful on my lids but I wish it was in pointed shape for easier application. I find that the maroon purple side doesn't shows up as well as the other side did but the pointed shape was a great help. Because this is a cream shadow, it creases so do apply a base and some similar colour powder on top to set them. In my opinion, I don't think that it should be used alone, you will still need to work it out with a black powder for deepening and white powder shadow for the inner corners and to highlight your brow bone. Blending them with your fingers in a patting motion for a better effect. It cost about RM44 in retail. Check out the video on how I use it.

p/s: When I received this at the event, I thought the colours are not suitable for my skintone and thought JQ who are fairer who will be able to carry it, so pass it to her to try. Watch her video tutorial and see how she create Sexy Smokey Raggae in her youtube tutorial
