Max Factor's range of Smokey Eye Drama Kits are all really cute and pretty. I was interested in all of them but settled on the Opulent Nudes palette, which has a mixture of essential nude shades perfect for creating a dramatic eye.
I think that the packaging of these Max Factor palettes is really cute as they are very small and neat looking. The palettes come with four different shades and an eyeshadow applicator.
As always, Max Factor delivers high quality and a sense of luxury with these palettes. The eyeshadows are very creamy and pigmented. They are very easy to blend and feel very comfortable. You don't need to apply a lot of eyeshadow as they are so pigmented that only a little is required for an intense effect.
The first shade is a pink toned cream colour. This colour is very pigmented for such a pale shade, and is perfect for highlighting. It's a very useful shade and is more pink than it appears in the pan.
The second shade is a gorgeous cool toned shimmery brown. It's a very intense, glittery shade and is probably the nicest colour in the palette. The shimmer is very finely grained which makes it very sophisticated and wearable but at the same time it is very glamorous and pretty.
The third shade is a matte mid brown colour. This shade is slightly lighter than the second shade. The colour has no shimmer and is slightly more warm toned than shade two.
The fourth shade is a very dark, ash brown shade with a matte finish. It's a very intense shade and is perfect for making the look more smokey.
When I used the kit for the first time I used shade 1 in the inner corner of the eye and as a highlighter and then applied shade two liberally to the lid. I then took shade three and blended it into the crease and underneath the eye, finishing by using shade four in the outer corner of the eye.
I am very pleased with this eyeshadow palette and think that it is perfect for creating a dark nude eye. The colours are all very wearable and make creating a smokey eye easier and more neutral. I would definitely recommend this palette to anybody looking for a more intense nude palette.
