Max Factor Fantasy Fire (close to Clarins 230 AKA Unicorn Pee) - Review and swatches

Hello lovelies!

I managed to buy one bottle of Max Factor Fantasy Fire for myself before it sold out everywhere. It is really beautiful purple jelly with multichrome shimmer. I've seen few comparisons with Clarins 230 AKA Unicorn Pee ant it was very close. Definitely a good cheaper alternative. In case your local drugstore would be still stocked on these, please, grab me two or three bottles, I love it and want to stock up!

Enjoy the pictures..



This is one coat of Fantasy Fire - as you can see it is very sheer, just a hint of colour and shimmer


This is 2 coats - the colour is more opaque but not completely.


Three coats create very nice cool-based jelly colour with pink shimmer. The shimmer changes to green in different angles.






Fantasy Fire in comparison with Nfu Oh 51 - the base colour with shimmer are very similar, Fantasy Fire looks like Nfu Oh 51 without flakies.


Fantasy Fire layering - over Models Own Snow White, OPI Wocka Wocka!, China Glaze Urban Night and Color Club Black.

  3. Those are really pretty I like the Wocka Wocka and the China Glaze Urban Night. I really, really want to try those. I love OPI, they definitely have the best polishes. I've never tried Max Factor's, I'll have to pick a couple of those up. Great review!

  4. I have this - you should try it over an indigo blue like Barry M Indigo, it looks amazing :)

    1. That's great, I wouldn't pay so much money for Clarins! I have the BeYu Brilliant Shiraz too so hopefully I'll get to it soon

    2. I know Clarins is way way too overpriced!

  10. I was indifferent on this polish when i saw it on MUA, but your pictures put it on top of my NEED NOW list!!
    so pretty over Urban Night! I bet it would look good over a jelly like OPI Huston We Have a Purple... it would keep the jelly-ish texture & purple colour, but it would be a bit darker. It may prolong your bottle too.

  11. Krásný, předpokládám, že v ČR si o něm můžeme nechat jenom zdát...

  12. Gahh, this is so pretty! I haven't seen it in Germany and I don't think I will. It doesn't have a slot in the display :(

  16. I'm doing a give away for these on my blog tomorrow =) I love it. I grabbed a bottle last month and then when I saw they were low on stock I grabbed another three (one for myself two for give away). It's gorgeous. I want to buy some more though. I might see if they have more tomorrow. x
