Max Factor Excess Intensity Longwear Eyeliner Review and Swatches of All Shades

Being a fan of Max Factor I was excited at the opportunity to try their new  Excess Intensity Longwear Liners. After using them for over a month now, I am happy to share my opinion, and show you the swatches of all six shades.
