Max Factor has been going since 1909. They know what they are doing. Gorgeously, completely and fabulously know what they are doing.
In the eyeshadow department, they’ve poured the knowledge of experts, visionaries and the colour spectrum to create palettes that are ridiculously mesmerising. Forget actually putting it on.
These Max Factor Smokey Eye Drama Kit beauties are works of art in and of themselves.
BUT, it would be a crime to not put them on. A CRIME!
They blend better than a chia, banana and kale smoothie, accentuate brighter than the morning sun and shine brighter than Kim K’s star status. Tchyuh. Pretty, damn, bright.
We stared at them long and hard and each seemed to tell us they were from a certain city. Do come exploring with us.
FROM PARIS, WITH LIGHT - LUXE LILACS
This phenom reminds us of a spring night in Paris. The Eiffel tower is alight with a brilliant golden aura. You’re walking, slowly, around its base. Everything is gleaming in a soft glow that places a hush on all. The light is reflected in your eyes and the notes of your eyeshadow spontaneous twinkle with a faery tale glimmer. You’ll remember this night.
ONCE UPON A TIME, IN TUSCANY – SUMPTUOUS GOLDS
The rolling vineyards sprawl ahead of you are you race around the tight turns in your Fiat convertible. It’s been perplexing you for a while, 'why is everything slightly touched with gold?' It dawns on you that perhaps the happiness of the region means that the rays of the sun are exuberantly welcome, and so, everything is blessed by a touch of the divine. It’s all rather perfect, you muse, as you put Ave Maria on for the fifth time.
WHEN IN PRAGUE – LAVISH ONYX
You step out into the crisp air, the music of Prokofiev still dancing in your ears. The dancers themselves seemed to have come from another world. So agile and fantastical were the ballerinas. And those costumes, they certainly didn’t skimp on the Swarovski crystals. But, as your eyes flit back and forth wondering which way would likely yield the dark hot chocolate you’ve been craving for hours, it is your eyelids that cast the greatest spell. Yes, you will get your dark hot chocolate tonight.
WHERE TO MA’AM? NEW YORK, NEW YORK – OPULENT NUDES
Sure you gave up your dream to sing at the Met when you were eleven and you realized that raising pug puppies was your real calling in life, but NY still holds a grip on your heart. As you saunter down the streets of Soho, you realise that these are your people. You glance up at the colourful fire exits and surmise that you’d be the most divine thing scurrying down the steps. So trendy, much style. As for your eyes, you’ve blended such a brown smokey eye, you’re surprised that more people are scurrying down those fire escapes. Anyway, you swish on, you gorgeous thing you.
