I was lucky enough to test out the Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eyeshadow in Crystal shade. It comes in a small eyeshadow pot that you can basically throw in your handbag and your good to go. It’s creamy and smooth and is very easy to apply. This shade is really shimmery and bright, so I’d recommend it for a formal event or a night out on the town. It comes in six shades overall, so if you’re looking for something with a bit more punch, there are a few other options available.

You can apply it with a brush, but if you’re in a hurry, you can simply dab a little onto your finger and sweep it across your lid for a quick fix. Be careful of applying too much though as it can cause creasing. I’m usually a bit sceptic of creamy eyeshadows (as they often wipe off after an hour or two), but must admit that the Excess Shimmer Eyeshadow lasted throughout the evening. Quite impressive!
