You all know by now, how much I love Max Factor products. It is really an underrated Drugstore product, though it is the makeup of many Makeup artists themselves and have great formula and pigmentation. Their product quality of a high end brand too. Max Factor recently launched these Masterpiece Nude eye contouring palettes and I was delighted to try them on. Today I will share my experience with the Max Factor eye contouring palettes along with their swatches.
Max Factor recently launched 3 eye contouring palettes, 01 – Cappuccino Nudes, 02 – Golden Nudes and 03 – Rose Nudes. All three palettes have a great mix of light and dark shades. The Cappuccino Nudes has cool shades, Golden Nudes has warm and the Rose Nudes are a great mix of pink nudes. I think Cappuccino Nudes and Rose Nudes form a great dupe of Urban Decay Naked palettes 2 and 3 respectively, though the packaging is different.
The packaging is very simple and transparent, so you can see the shades inside the palette and you needn’t open the palette to identify which one is it or what shades are inside. The gold is very typical of Max Factor and gives more of a luxury vibe. It is small sleek palette that comes in very handy for travel as it has got mix of light or natural and heavy or dark eyeshadows.
Review/Product experience :
Each palette comes with a double sided sponge brush which works very really well and not like the cheap brushes available outside. This Dual-nib applicator is for precision and smooth blending. The flat brush is to blend and the long one is to define.
Each palette has 8 perfectly paired neutral shades, both matte and shimmery, which can be used for create a daily nude look or subtle smoky eye. The eyeshadows are very pigmented, velvety smooth and buildable.
I have used no filters so that you all have a look at the actual shades.

Overall Opinion :
As ever, Max factor never disappoints me with their products. Really impressed by the eyeshadow palette quality. A mirror to the palette would be an added advantage. It is very difficult to pick one from the 3 palettes and totally depends on one’s preference.
Available at all Lifestyle stores, some hypermarkets and Boots pharmacies across UAE.
