Review and ideas: Max Factor Smokey Eye Effect


This eyeshadow pen applicator is designed to create a smokey eye with two simple steps. It's great for the price and I've often seen it on offer in conjunction with other Max Factor products. There are eight two-step colours all together : pink plume, blue tempe, onyx smoke, purple dust, silver storm, indigo mist, citrus thunder,  and brown haze.Step one allows a overall coverage of the eyelid as the pen is rounded making it easier to cover the socket. Step two allows you to create a smoke in the crease of the eye with the pointed tip to create an effect of bigger and more mysterious eyes! The eyeshadow is cream based and fairly thick so blending colours can be difficult with brushes. I found that without a finishing powder, the cream creases up in the eye lid and is not good for long wear. Use a finishing powder on top to make sure the cream eyeshadow stays in place! You can pick these up at any drug store such as Boots/Superdrug. Worth a buy, I love the brown haze!
Smokeyblush TIP: Use the pointed tip to sweep across the lower lid line and blend and smudge with the tip of your finger to create sensual eyes!
