Max Factor Wild Shadow Pots

When it comes to Max Factor as a brand, it tends to be one of the ones I have tried a lot less of, for some reason when in Boots or Superdrug I am more inclined to go towards brands such as Rimmel and Maybelline, however recently I've been venturing into more brands to give their products a go. I used to love and swear by a mascara by Max Factor so I already knew the brand did some really good products and one of their foundations has now become a favourite of mine. I picked up a couple of their Wild Shadow Pots a while ago now, they seemed so affordable and I do love having single eyeshadows, especially when the shades were so pretty. 
There are actually ten possible shades in the Wild Shadow Pot range, I picked out the two that caught my eye and ended up with the shades Burnt Bark and Auburn Envy, my ideal kind of shades especially for this time of year. 

Burnt Bark is more of a cool toned shade, it reminds me a little of MAC Satin Taupe in that its a slightly dark, taupe shade with grey tones. I normally find cool toned eyeshadows don't suit me the well but this one seems to work lovely, I actually used it in my most recently tutorial on YouTube. Auburn Envy is the shade I've been wearing nearly every day, its a beautiful warm toned copper shade with lots of sparkle, its so pretty and I have received so many compliments when I have been wearing this. I've found this shade works really nice over the top of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Creamy Beige, the shades match really well and this makes the shadow stay put all day long, although the lasting power of the shadows on their own is fantastic as it is. 
You can use the eyeshadows wet or dry, of course the intensity of each shade improves quite a lot if you use them wet, so its entirely personal choice when it comes to how you decide to apply. Overall I really like the texture of the shadows and find them to work really lovely on the eyes, they are easy to blend and the pigmentation is as you see in the pan, I really do like these and will definitely be picking up more of the shades in the range, I have Savage Rose and Feral Brown on my wish list already! 
The Wild Shadow Pots retail at just £4.99 each and can be found in Boots, Superdrug and some large supermarkets such as Sainsbury's and Tesco.
