Normally when a brand releases a collection in Autumn, all the eyeshadows are warm neutrals, in other words, every shade of brown with a taupe or two. With the Max Factor Wild Collection, it looks like they started to follow that trend but then went a bit mad and added a few vibrant brights, after all they are calling it Wild and the brighter colours are certainly wild. Funnily enough though, some of the stronger colours, while looking scary in the pots, are actually very wearable. They are wearable because you can blend them out to a subtle wash of colour, but if wild is the look you are going for then you can really pack on the colour for a stronger look. These shadow pots are soft and creamy. They blend easily and the colours are well pigmented and buildable. They can be used wet or dry. They look quite sparkly in the pots but the result on the lid is less disco ball sparkle and more metallic shimmer. The best bit is for a price tag of €6.99 each there is little to no fall out, which has me seriously impressed. The lasting power is all right on my oily lids without primer, but they last every bit as long as more expensive brands with MAC Paint Pot in Painterly as my primer.
So here they are:
Here are three looks I did with Max Factor Wild Shadow Pencil Carmel Rage as my eyeliner and Max Factor Wild Mega volume Mascara, which I will show you properly on Wednesday.
Soft day look with Burnt Bark in the crease. I think Burnt Bark is a taupe that reminds me a bit of MAC’s Satin Taupe. On the lid is Savage Rose, a perfect neutral to brighten and even out the skin tone on the lid. I have a bit of Fierce Pink on the Inner socket line, putting a bit of pink or peach on the inner socket bone can brighten the eye and add a pretty highlight.
Here I blended out Ferocious black in the crease to show it doesn’t have to be heavy duty black and can be used for a soft daytime smokey eye. On the lid is Auburn Envy.
I did this for a night out and used Feral Brown in the crease. This is probably in my favourite and lies somewhere between dark bronze and burnt orange. On the lid is Auburn Envy and a bit of Defiant White in the inner corner for a highlight.
How many of these are on your list to buy?
