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.

 Above review is done by my blog guest reviewer JQ who is also a blogger, she blogs at

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

Guest Review : Garnier Men Acno Fight

Sometimes I have been given men products for review, so this time around Shiiteck was my guest reviewer for this product. This is his first time doing skincare product review. Let's see what he says after been using it for a while.


Recently my face full of pimples due to lack sleep and unhealthy food I've taken everyday. Self esteem to minimum! Then I found out the new product "Garnier Men Acno Fight" in the market and I give a try on my problem face skin. See photo below,

It is Anti-Acne roll on type and very simple and easy to apply on the face. Apply directly onto and around imperfections and blemishes as soon as they appear and I can see the the difference after 1 week, the redness is reduced. I quite like this product as in the price is affordable below RM 20 and the effect is good.

This product can be used every single day and for me, I use it twice a day, morning after wash up and before off to bed. 15ml pack is perfect to bring along and no more worries.

Note : Above are the review from Shiiteck from
