The Beauty Review: Max Factor "Masterpiece Transform" Mascara & "Excess Shimmer" EyeshadowsFriday, 7 November 2014
Max Factor Masterpiece Transform Mascara* (link)When it comes to high-street/drugstore mascara brands, you really can't beat the quality and value of Max Factor. I'm just obsessed with them! The latest offering from the brand is called the "Masterpiece Transform" and promises to offer maximum impact lashes, in just one coat. It does this through its' unique wand with rows of rotating bristles capturing and coating every lash-clump free. It really does give that wow effect. Besides from being extremely easy and quick to apply, in order to achieve dramatic lashes, the formula also stays put all day. I always find this to be the one 'downfall' when it comes to non-waterproof mascaras, however every one I've tried from Max Factor (non-waterproof formulas), so far, has had incredible staying power and doesn't flake off during the day. It is safe to say that this product has undoubtedly made its way into my everyday make up bag.

Another new addition to the 'Max Factor family' is these metallic, creamy eyeshadows. Now these shadows are seriously pigmented, in fact I've never come across a drug-store product like it in formula. Needing only just one sweep across your eyes for a maximum impact colour (just take a look at the swatches), due to their creamy consistency, I find them extremely easy to blend and often see myself mixing shades to create my own unique 'look'. My favourites from the bunch are definitely "copper" and "bronze" because as well as making my blue eyes 'pop', their rich colour screams luxury and adds a touch of drama to your eyes. They also make the perfect accompaniment for a party make-up look or even a festive 'do, especially with the season fast upon us. For me it is like getting the long-lasting wear and quality of a high-end product, with a small £7.99 price tag to pay-a must in my books
