Max Factor Earth Spirits Eye Shadow in Burnt Bark - The Perfect Crease Shadow

Max Factor Earth Spirits Burnt Bark Eye Shadow is an absolutely gorgeous taupe shade with a slight frost finish. Brown/grey, it is an ideal colour to create a smokey effect. It is such a great colour that can be worn during the day without it looking too heavy and also perfect for creating a stronger look for the evening. I have been applying it with a cream coloured base shade and then using Burnt Bark in the crease.

Texture wise Burnt Bark is ultra smooth a and very easy to blend.This has to be one of my all time favourite shades, non creasing and it lasts all day. I find it extremely flattering against my green eyes.

It has been said that Burnt Bark is a good dupe for MAC's Satin Taupe. Although I don't own Satin Taupe did a quick swatch of the two when out shopping and they are very similar (wish I had taken a picture now!)

I find myself reaching for Burnt Bark nearly every time I use eye shadow and that for me is a test of a great product. This is definitely a shade that everyone should own.

Max Factor Earth Spirits Eye Shadow in Burnt Bark costs £4.99

  1. you're right, this does look similar to satin taupe except this has more of a purple-ish undertone to it! Still very pretty though!

  2. I adore this colour but cannot buy it it New Zealand anymore. Would love to be able to buy it again.
