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.
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!
Then there’s the gorgeous macaroon lip balm (R99).
Nicer yet was the Chunky Crayon (R79) for 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.

Hi Leigh. Did you try the eyeshadow on your eyes yet? Or just swatch them? Are they blendable?

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.
Mmm, looks pretty good.
hey leigh, is the contour kit a powder or cream palette?
Is it a cream or powder contour palette?
