Max Factor launched Excess Shimmer eye shadow pots last year and the blogosphere raved about it. I was sure I'll get sucked into buying them sooner or later which I did, but never got around to reviewing them here. Although all the colors are extremely pretty, Copper is possibly my favorite cream eye shadow shade.

These pots, as the name obviously suggests, are supremely shimmery. But the shimmer is such that it has that high-end luxe feel to it. The product has a gel-ish whipped texture, so much that it tends to move around in the pot all the time. It is very soft and silky to the touch, not at all like the Color Tattoos or Color Editions by Maybelline and Bourjois. It does take a little bit more time to dry but once it does, it lasts for about 5 hours without fading. And that's saying something for a drugstore brand. I have mobile lids so it tends to crease a tiny weeny bit on me. They are all very pigmented and blend beautifully (although they do take extra time).

Copper is more like a champagne nude shade with a vintage vibe to it. Its definitely like no other copper I have used. There is no bright yellow gold into it, it leans more towards beige. On a matte base with a little bronzer along the crease, this would make for a great every day look. 

Overall, these are great products to be used alone or in combination. I'm wholeheartedly supporting a matte eyeshadow range much like these. Great, great formulas!
