Make your eyes stand out with Maxfactor Excess Intensity Longwear Eyeliner in 01

The Hype
Make your eyes stand out by lining them with Maxfactor’s Excess Intensity Longwear Eyeliner. Available in 9 intense shades that compliment your lashes to create a look that lasts all day.

The Lowdown
I tend to use black eyeliner but like to switch things up from time to time. The eyeliner is quite unusual in that it’s self sharpening so those days of broken eyeliners are in the past. I’m testing the gold shade (01) which is absolutely gorgeous. The liner is amazingly pigmented and so soft and creamy to apply. The liner has fantastic resistance and I had to really rub the product to get it to shift even a small amount.

The one negative thing I have to point out is the fact that the tip does not have any real shape. Whilst many eyeliners have a typical pencil tip which makes it easy to apply this eyeliner is quite flat which means application isn’t so exact and it may slip a bit.

The eyeliner is bright enough to be used on its own either on the top lash line, bottom lash line or both. Alternatively it can be worn with a bright eyeshadow to really make your eyes pop.

It’s not often I say this but this eyeliner does pretty much everything right. Perfect for lining your eyes on a sunny beach holiday.

I give it 4/5
