Max Factor Smoky Eyes Effect

Yesterday I ventured outside for the first time in a while. I didn't have an agenda, but I felt like getting out of the house for a few minutes. I went to VITA to check out those new Max Factor Smoky Eyes Effect "crayons" which had tickled my curiosity a little after seeing the commercial several times, and I picked up five of the six colors. Sometimes it's nice to branch out a little, and Max Factor will always be my favorite brand when it comes to mascara. It was quite clear to me which one was the most popular, because I went to three stores before I found one single, unused "Onyx Smoke". I have no idea if these will be any good at all, but I wanted to give them a shot. To be honest I suspect they'll crease a bit on their own, but time will show - I'll use them with a primer underneath.

After arriving home I unfortunately discovered that one of them had been opened, despite of my efforts to ensure that all of them were sealed, and the "crayon" on one side was broken in half. Made me immensely mad, why can't people just stick the hell to the testers instead of pawing on the ones for sale? I don't appreciate buying beauty products that someone else has put their fingers into, and I sure as hell don't want to use them on my face. I just hope I'm able to exchange it for a new one, returning makeup is always a tricky one. I've tried at least two times without success, when I've been dumb enough to purchase brown mascara instead of my regular black one. Yep, at least two times. Thankfully I was able to return it today, and now I have a brand new and unused one.

  1. fancy! har ikke sett de på reklame engang jeg hehe. syns det er helt teit og tragisk av folk som åpner ikke-testere.. det er jo ikke lov engang -_-

    • Det er vel disse fjortisene da, som syns det er “utrolig kult ass” å pille på ting de burde la være. Jeg sjekker alltid det jeg kjøper, uansett – men denne gangen overså jeg en brutt forsegling.

  2. they look amazing Smile
    Gonna see if I can find them next time I go shopping
    Oh and the thing with the used one.. happened to me once too, only that time it was a lipstick. It was soo damn gross, it had hair on it and it was melted and crushed… I returned it and I got a new one. Thank god

    Smile
    Hugs

    • Ugh, that’s really gross! I saw this lady not so long ago, who actually put on some tester lipstick directly from the tube – I felt nauseous. I’m glad you got to return yours.

  3. Tror ikke det skal være noe problem å levere tilbake til Anne Elisabeth, hun som eier Vita. Veldig service innstilt!!

    • Jeg aner ikke hvem Anne Elisabeth er, det står alltid forskjellige folk i kassa på VITA på Solsiden, men heldigvis var det ingen av disse helt unge som var der når jeg gikk for å bytte den. Jeg er ikke helt sikker på om hun trodde meg når jeg sa at den var ødelagt når jeg åpnet den, og at forseglingen var brutt, men hun buttet den nå iallfall. Smile

  4. Du må komme med tilbakemeldinger når du har fått prøvd de. Frister å kjøpe sånne for smokey eye er noe av det vanskeligste, men også noe av det peneste som er av sminketeknikker <3

    • Det skal jeg gjøre. Jeg er også en sucker for “smoky eyes”, men jeg er av en eller annen grunn skeptisk til at disse “fargestiftene” skal gjøre jobben bra. Kanskje om man bruker en kost istedet for fingrene (som produktet er ment for), men det vil tiden vise. Sminkelysten min virker å være på tur tilbake!
