Recently I have posted about the top three affordable new makeup launches that caught my attention. And Max Factor actually kindly sent me their new eye shadows to try out.
They have already made an appearance on my Instagram, and now it’s time for a detailed review.
And, let me tell you, these eye shadows are absolutely brilliant! I was a bit worried that with the name Excess Shimmer it could be an overkill (not a fan of too much glitter), but it is not – spot on, in fact!
The brand describes the texture as “3D silicone gel”, and it does feel like a light mousse-y gel texture (the only similar product that I have, is my favourite cream eye shadow by New CID) which is foolproof.
You can even use the product with your finger and gently blend all over the lid. The formula is pretty unique, you can sheer it out, or add layers for a more intense effect.
As for the look, yes it is quite shimmery, but it looks pretty! It never is flat, but instead, gives dimension, and reflects the light beautifully.

I know that a lot of people were waiting for the review of Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadows, but I wanted to take my time, and test them out properly. And, finally, I am ready to share my impression.
This Autumn the brand released 6 shades of what they describe as “new generation cream to powder eye shadows”:01 Nude Beige, 02 Nude Pink, 03 Taupe, 04 Rosewood, 05 Sparkle Grey and 06 Earth.
So what about the formula?
I’d describe it as a very well pressed creamy powder. The finish is matte (at least in the shades that I have), so they look very natural on the eye lids.

Today I want to show you a very special, and, dare I say, magical product from Rouge Bunny Rouge. Their first eye shadow palette - Raw Garden in Chronos. I know that the brand is really proud of their new creation, and they should be.
It is truly amazing! Let’s take a look.Read More
I already reviewed one shade of Rouge Bunny Rouge Silk Aether eye shadows, and today I want to tell you about the other one, which was easily my eye shadow of the month, as I’ve already said it my monthly favourites.
It is called Atlas Swallowtail which is a “satin wash of nude taupe with pewter reflections; buildable to a darker, more opaque and metallic greyish hue.” And it is the perfect taupe, it gives enough of definition but still looks subtle. I can’t think of anyone who would look bad with such shade on the lids.
I agree with the brand that their eye shadows have a ” semi-matte, luminous colour”, the texture is silky and smooth. The eye shadows look absolutely beautiful when applied, you don’t even feel them on the skin, as the texture is so lightweight, and I find that it doesn’t enhance any skin imperfections you may have, as some cream eye shadows can.

The brand describes this shade as “cool, dusky sugar-frosted plum, iridescent with pink shimmer”, and as usual it is a very complex shade that doesn’t look flat or boring when applied on theRead More
