Factorie (yep, the fashion chain) now have their own cosmetics line, Make Up Make Out

Aussie fashion chain Factorie has joined the likes of Cotton On and Top Shop and whipped out their own cosmetics line, Make Up, Make Out. As with most chain store make-up collections, some of its cool, some of it’s kak, but a few of their items really impressed me, the first being the quality of their fabulously pigmented, butter-textured eye shadow that glides on like a dream.

I was given a palette called Vegas Nights.

Toss that hideous brush the moment you spot it and get yourself MAC's 217.
The cheap and nasty brush broke the moment I touched it. My advice is to toss it straight away and invest in a MAC’s 217. You’ll thank me later.

The one Factorie brush I did like, however, was their bronzer brush (R149). It’s actually pretty good quality but now I can’t for the life of me find it to take a pic. Oops!

These aren't colours I'd wear but the great quality's got me interested in seeing what other palettes they have next time I'm in the mall.

Then there’s the gorgeous macaroon lip balm (R99).

It's a strawberry scented, flavoured balm that isn't anything to write home about the packaging is adorable so it gets a thumbs up as a fab stocking filler.

Nicer yet was the Chunky Crayon (R79) for lips.

Like the shadow, the pigmentation is great and totally comparable to Revlon's lip crayons.

This shade's called Scarlett Berry and it feels nice and hydrating on your lips.

Next time you’re in store, know that Factorie’s new cosmetic line up is definitely worth a look. Price-wise, nothing’s going to break the bank. As it is, their big kahuna, a 6-shade contour kit is just R249 and their nail polishes start at R49.

Love, love

    1. I used the lighter two shades on my eyes and they’re fabulous. Very, very blendable. The quality makes me think of Clinique’s shadow. Only thing is that while the bronze shade and taupe shades work for me (provided they’re worn separately as one is warm and the other is cool) the other four (charcoal, aubergine, white and black) are waaaay too harsh for my MAC NC 25 skin tone. All together, I think this palette is more suited to someone with a super dark skin tone.
