Max Factor Wild Shadow Pots

From Max Factor this autumn comes the new Wild Collection. Featuring a new mascara, Wild Mega Volume, for intensely plump lashes, eight Wild Shadow Pencils (more on these next week!) and thirteen shades of the new Wild Shadow Pots* which is what we'll be discussing today!

Featuring a mixture of nudes, neutrals and acid brights, the Wild Shadow Pots (RRP €6.99) can be used wet or dry depending on how intense you want your look.

There are some crazy shades in the line-up like Fierce Pink, Untamed Green, Sapphire Rage and Vicious Purple which, while great for the Halloween period, I'm not sure how many people would get day-to-day use out of them. However, the rest of the collection reads like an Urban Decay Naked line-up with gorgeous golds, rose golds, bronzes and taupes which are sure to appeal to the majority. 

All of the shadows have either full-blown shimmer or satin finishes which is a bit meh, in my opinion. As with every eyeshadow release, I love to see some great matte shades mixed in but, I guess that doesn't marry with the Wild Collection aesthetic. All of the shadows are impressively pigmented and come off even richer when used wet. I'm wearing Auburn Envy, Burnt Bark and Pale Pebble in the image below. 

Overally, I'm massively impressed with the quality of these shadows which, for the most part, belies the €6.99 pricetag. The one downside, I feel, is the packaging. The screwtop mini pots aren't particularly user friendly (I envision lost lids!) and don't stay closed unless stored flat. However, they seem like they would be pretty easy to depot so, that could be an option.


  1. Yeah, the packaging isn't the greatest but the selection of colours looks great :)

  2. Ooooh the colours look so lovely, and the payoff amazing! Real shame about the packaging though, doesn't really do them justice! Something like the individual Inglot pots would look far more swish

  3. ... that said, I'm probably still gonna buy 6 of them!
