Max Factor Smokey Eye Drama Kit | Sumptuous Golds

My own summer makeup theme this year is pretty apparent when nails, cheeks and eyes are in question (and I love when I find a seasonal theme to love!). Nails are ruled by crazy kick ass neons and peachy tan-enhancing shades. Cheeks are seriously bronzed up with a hint of peachy-pink blush and eyes are pretty much adorned in shades of gold (and maybe a pop of dusty lilac). Eye territory got a bit of a revamp ever since I’ve rediscovered my Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paint in Golden Bronze. Then you have Half Baked from the original Urban Decay Naked palette, NYX Love in Rio palette in Cabana Boy and recently reviewed Manhattan Eyemazing Effect palette in Brownie Break. All these monos and palettes are warm/yellow toned chocolatey goodness. I love pairing these shades with tanned skin – it makes it pop in a very sultry, sensual way. And I prefer my golds to be shimmery. Whilst most of the aforementioned shadows contain shimmer appropriate for day wear, the newest addition to my makeup bag packs some serious drama and glow. Max Factor Smokey Eye Drama Kit in Sumptuous Golds 03 is perfection for hot summer nights!

Ovog ljeta sam primjetila odredjenu kozmeticku tematiku kada su nokti, obrascici i oci u pitanju (a jako volim kada se pronadjem u nekoj boji ili trendu u toku odredjene sezone!). Noktima ovog ljeta vladaju lude neon boje kao i blijedo breskvasti tonovi koji isticu preplanulu kozu. Obrazi poznaju samo bronzere i dasak breskvasto/ruzicastog rumenila a oci gotovo pa iskljucivo (uz izuzetak blijedo lila) nose zlatno ruho. Jos otkako sam ponovo otkrila Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paint u nijansi Golden Bronze zapocela sam pomamu za zlatnim sjenama. Potom mi je medju favoritima Half Baked sjena iz originalne Urban Decay Naked palete, zatim je tu NYX Love in Rio paleta nijansa Cabana Boy i nedavno recenzirana Manhattan Eyemazing Effect paleta u nijansi Brownie Break. Sve ove mono sjene i paletice imaju nesto zajednicko – sve su cokoladno/bronzane divotice toplog podtona. Ovakve nijanse volim nositi uz preplanulu put – isticu je na veoma senzualan nacin. I takodjer preferiram zlatne sjene da sadrze shimmer. Dok je vecina sjena koje sam prethodno navela shimmerasta ili metalik finisha koji je prikladan i za dnevnu sminku, posljednji novitet u mom neseseru pak nosi dosta glamurozni stih. Max Factor Smokey Eye Drama Kit u nijansi Sumptuous Golds 03 kao da je stvoren za tople ljetne veceri!


Max Factor Smokey Eye Drama Kit would be perfect for traveling because it contains eyeshadow and eyebrow powders. You have all of that housed in a sleek rectangular compact. Black, transparent plastic with gold detailing photographs beautifully. It doesn’t look luxe per se and I do hope gold details won’t rub off (will report about this later on!). I’m not a fan of the two-sided spongey applicator, as always. Powders have an unusual set up – strips aren’t the easiest to pick out eyeshadows from – my fingers are small enough but not everyone’s would be plus, not all brushes would fit them. Squares are fine, though. This warm palette has a strong gold/copper theme and it’s quite shimmery. Fallout is there. If that’s not your thing, skip it. The gold, highlighting hue is silky and very shimmery – perfect for adding some light to any smokey eye. My favorite shade is the upper strip copper -it’s extremely buttery and pigmented! It’s more metallic than shimmery and it looks fantastic all over the lid. Strip below houses a chocolate brown shade, also very soft and creamy with just a hint of shimmer. Finally, you have the dark brown powder which can be used as and eyeshadow and eyebrow filler. It’s not extremely cool-toned but it doesn’t have red undertones – that makes it appear quite natural in brows. It’s suited for very dark brown brows though so keep that in mind. I’ve filled my brows with it using a Real Techniques brow brush. I’ve also applied some on the outer corner of my eyes. What do you think? Is this the ultimate eyebrow/shadow compact?

Max Factor Smokey Eye Drama Kit (cca 18KM) bi bio idealna paletica za ponijeti na putovanje posto sadrzi sjene ali i puder za popunjavanje obrva. Svi praskasti proizvodi se nalaze upakovani u elegantno, duguljasto kompaktno pakovanje. Dizajn ukljucuje crnu boju, transparenti panel i zlatne detalje od plastike i sve skupa na fotografijama izgleda fantasticno. Sama paletica nije luksuzni komad kozmetike no izgleda dosta lijepo a ukupni dojam ce zaokruziti visemjesecno koristenje nakon kojeg cu javiti da li su se zlatni detalji izgrebali, obrisali itd. Kao i uvijek, mislim da je spuzvasti aplikator nepotreban. Sve sjene su poredane unutar pakovanja na neobican nacin – duguljaste trakice mi se ne cine kao najzgodniji odabir dok su kvadratici sasvim funkcionalni. Trakice su dovoljno velike za moje prstice ali ne vjerujem da bi odgovarale svima a ni svaki kist im sirinom nije prilagodjen. Imajte ovo na umu. Kroz cijelu paletu je prisutna tematika zlatnih i bakarnih tonova, sjene sadrze shimmer koji se pri nanosenju rasipa – ako vam to smeta, onda preskocite ovu paleticu. Zlatna nijansa za hajlajt (u kvadraticu) je svilenkasta na dodir i dosta shimmerasta – idealna je kao dodatak svakom smokey eye look-u. Meni omiljena nijansa je intenzivno bakrena sjena (horizontalna trakica sa vrha) – izuzetno je puterasta i pigmentirana! Vise naginje ka metalik finishu nego sto je shimmerasta i savrseno izgleda nanesena preko cijelog kapka samostalno. Ispod nje se nalazi cokoladno smedja sjena prozeta shimmerom, koja je takodjer kremaste teksture. Naposlijetku, u drugom kvadraticu, imamo puder tamno smedje boje koji je pravi  2 u 1 multipraktik – namijenjen je koristenju kao puder za popunjavanje obrva ali i kao sjena za oci. Nije ekstremno hladnog podtona ali zasigurno nema crvene primjese sto cini ovu nijansu idealnom za postizanje prirodnog izgleda obrva. Pigment je dosta taman tako da osobama svjetlije kose i koze nece odgovarati. Na fotografijama sam ovaj puder koristila za obrve (nanijela sam ga uz pomoc Real Techniques koso rezanog kista) i na vanjskom kutu oka, uz rub trepavica. Sta vi mislite? Da li se ovdje radi o ultimativnoj kompaktnoj paletici za oci i obrve?
