It is no longer difficult to find eyeshadow palettes in the drugstore. However, it’s definitely still challenging to find a great one. Spoiler alert, I found one and you probably haven’t heard about it before. It’s the Max Factor Masterpiece Nude Palette in 02 Golden Nudes*.
Months ago I saw this palette floating around my Bloglovin’ feed and I think those posts were from a few girls overseas. Online swatches and reviews were fantastic so when I realised I could get my hands on it here in Australia, I knew it had to be mine.
The Max Factor Masterpiece Nude palette comes in two variations. I ended up getting 02 Golden Nudes, but both variations come with 8 gorgeous shades. This palette has five shades are shimmers and three are mattes. Most of the time I have to describe how swatches apply, but look at them *swoon. They speak for themselves.
What’s so great about this palette? In my opinion, I think that Max Factor was really smart when they designed this palette. The matte shades are the shades that we all scream and beg to be mattes in a palette. We’re given a great matte brow bone shade, crease shade and a deeper shade to darken up the look. The shimmers are all diverse and depending on what you’re feeling for that day, you could createa goold, champagne, grey, or bronze eyeshadow look. Talk about variety, right!?
I know that in most of my reviews about drugstore eyeshadow palettes one thing I usually say is that they are great for beginners. Well, this one on the other hand I think has a place in your makeup collection. For the price, diverse shades and quality, I think you can’t miss it.
The only one downside I can see to the palette is the fact that there isn’t a mirror. I would still however say it is a good palette for travel, as long as you can bring a mirror or rely on one in your accomodation.
Have you tried any Max Factor eyeshadow palettes before?
