Review: Max Factor Excess Shimmer


Hi loves! Today I have for you cream shadows from Max Factor and its their Excess Shimmer cream eye shadows. I picked up 2 shades 10 Pearl and 30 Onyx (7 g).


They come in a little glass jar with black cap. I like I can see the shade I have from the bottom. Its handy when you are looking for specific shade. The packaging is bit to the heavy side, so it wouldn't be ideal for traveling. 

The formula of these is super creamy, way more creamier then Maybelline color tattoos. Its easy to blend them out and you do need a little to get a good color pay off, also you can build the color up, if you want. 


Out of the 2 shades I pick, my favorite is Pearl. Its so interesting shade and I don't have anything like this in my collection. Its light, light green with stunning sheen to it. Its perfect to wear on its own all over the lid. 

I picked Onyx to use it for smokey eye. It looks beautiful on its own, but I did notice it creased a lot on me and I don't have oily lids. I guess it creased, because the formula of it is so creamy. If I set it with powder eye shadow it lasts longer on me, but its a gorgeous shimmery shade, which I wouldn't want to set with another eye shadow, but its the only way I can use it. I didn't noticed Pearl to crease on me as much. Maybe because its a lighter shade and I didn't notice it.

Overall I do like these shadows, but I wouldn't go get more, because of the creasing :( I do like how creamy the formula is.


Do you like these cream shadows from Max Factor?

  1. What a shame about the creasing, they sound as though they had the potential to be so good x

  2. It's a shame about the creasing, did you try a primer beforehand? I've found that if I use my Urban Decay primer underneath any eyeshadow it doesn't budge at all! I love the look of pearl though, going to have to give it a try! So gorgeous.

  7. These look like pretty shades, I've not heard of the product before! Shame about the creasing - I'm always wary of cream shadows for that reason!
