Max Factor Wild Shadow Pencils

Last week I introduced you to the new Max Factor Wild Shadow Pots and today we're going to look at the Wild Shadow Pencils* (RRP €7.49) from the same collection. Available in eight shades, these pencils can be used as both eyeliners and eyeshadows (and I also find them great as a base!). 

The colour palette here isn't as extreme as the Shadow Pots; no neons! There is a questionable icy blue shimmery shade which I wouldn't personally like but, I'm really impressed overall with the shade selection, especially the bronze; Caramel Rage, and the navy blue; Bold Sapphire. Both of these colours make an instant smokey eye which is great if you are in a rush. 

For a drugstore product, the formula of these are really special. It is a gel formula that is cool to the touch and blends beautifully. However, unlike most gel-based cream products, it sets and doesn't crease, also making it a great base for powder eyeshadow.

These are a great budget option for expanding your make-up collection and getting some really great quality cream shadows that have a multitude of uses. Personally, I would steer clear of some of the paler, shimmery shades as I feel like they look cheap but, the rest are pretty much spot on!


  1. These look so nice, could you please swatch them? Thanks!

  2. I've never really heard much about these before but they seem to be making the rounds now, I really need to check them out x

  3. Ooooh Caramel Rage is calling my name ...
