Max Factor Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising Mascara Review

Max Factor have been killing it with their mascaras lately. Their Masterpiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara (review here) was one of the best ones I have ever tried, no wonder it won so many awards.

The brand came out with a new one Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising Mascara  recently which I have posted on Instagram about  a month ago and which you could see in this post.

I have been using it since February, and I want to share my impression finally…

Max Factor Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Mascara Review

Apparently this mascara contains lash extending carbon-black fibres for thicker, longer and more intense lashes.

And that is how it works –  Glamour Extensions gives amazing volume, great length as the short bristles allow to coat each lash;  and don’t forget the ultra black intense colour. I also love how long-lasting it is! I have sensitive eyes that are often watering, so it is important that it doesn’t smudge or run. Big thumbs up for such an amazing formula.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes Review and Swatches

I am a huge fan of Max Factor’s Miracle Touch Creamy Blush, so I was very excited about the launch of their new blushers – Creme Puff. There are six shades and I was sent three of them (and a new mascara).

Let’s take a look.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes Review and Swatches

These are multi-tonal blushes which, when the shades are mixed together, give you a gorgeous shade.

The colours that I have are:

  •  Lovely Pink, Use this shade for a hint of pink on fair skin
  • Alluring Rose, A shade with hints of gold colour; beautiful on warmer or tanned skin
  • Gorgeous Berries,  Provides a good pop of colour so works really well on darker skin tones

Here are three new beauty releases for the cheeks that caught my  attention.

Bobbi Brown Brightening Brick, $46 from Neiman Marcus and £34 from Harrods.

Exactly the kind of product we need after winter. It adds colour and luminosity to the skin, according to the brand it has “a the warmth of a bronzer and the soft flush of a blush with a gorgeous, subtle glow.”

Available in six shades:  Pastel Pink, Pink,  Coral, Cranberry, Tawny and  Pastel Peach.

Max Factor Mastepiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara Review

When I was a teen, I considered Max Factor mascara to be a proper luxury, I had to save money to  get myself a tube. Although that was ages ago, but I am still in love with the brand’s mascaras. In fact, their latest one – Excess Volume Extreme Impact was  very innovative and brilliant

But what about Masterpiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara?

Max Factor Masteprice Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara ReviewIt is actually phenomenal, I think. I have been using it for weeks now, and I am absolutely in love. It gives the most amazing effect – intense, dramatic ultra black  lashes with impressive volume and  fullness.

But I have to  mention that this mascara gets a lot better with time when it dries out a bit, but I think that it’s the same for all the mascaras.

And what I personally appreciate the most – how long-lasting it is. It stays on really well, of course not as a waterproof mascara,  but definitely better than any other mascara that I’ve used. My eyes are very sensitive and they are watering a lot, so I really appreciate it.  It can be hard to remove it by the end of the day, but who cares?

The  bendy rubbery brush has short bristles which distribute the product that way that  it coats each lash and gives this dramatic effect.

I have actually noticed that  Mastepiece Transform already won several beauty awards, and rightly so! It is that good.Max Factor Masteprice Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara Review brushYou can buy it from Boots and Superdrug for £9.99.

Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows Review and Swatches. Rave

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.

Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows Review and Swatches Onyx and Crystal shades 1And, 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.
