Ever tried a product that you were surprised you loved?

I’ve had a tube of Max Factor Eyeshadow Duo kicking around in my drawer for awhile. I just couldn’t work up the courage to try it since I was so sure I would hate it. Finally yesterday I decided to try it since I had a little extra time to wash my face and start over if needed.

I am not sure why I was so scared I think I was under the impression it would come out like a Crayola marker on my eyes. I was really surprised how easy and light it came out with a really smooth powder, it was so easy to apply and the color pigment is amazing. The tube I had was the Brassy Berry shade the golden color is PERFECT for summer and the berry color was surprisingly pretty and mellow. The applicator tip made the shadow super easy to work with and the color really stayed true.
