You cannot beat a good cream shadow that lasts all day on the eyes, enter Maxfactor Excess Shimmer. These little pots of cream are literally the shizz and super affordable what more could you want? I picked up the shade Bronze to give them a whirl and here is my verdict.
First up Bronze is a reddy undertoned brown that is very warming and very natural. I would wear this on the lid blended out for a sheer hint of cooper bronze or built up to give myself the Olsen Twin smokey brown eye. Now I have no idea why they are called Excess Shimmer when they literally only contain a tiny amount of shimmer so don't let that turn you off. As for consistency it goes on like a gel and dries very quickly so when applying I usually apply with a brush and blend out quickly, blending is relatively simple so great for beginners.
Now I have rather oily lids and nothing usually lasts on my eyes that long but these are just something else. I apply them at 9pm and come home 6pm and it still looks great. So staying power is immense and I actually prefer these over the Maybelline Colour Tattoos as they last way longer.
I love this shadow and cannot wait to pick up more. There is only currently 6 shades and Copper is next on my list but hopefully Maxfactor will expand the shade range. To sum it all up next time your in Boots treat yourself to a little pot from Maxfactor, you will not regret it.
