What is everyone going to do over the weekend? Hope it’s going to be fun and exciting! Do include some self indulgence, whilst you enjoy your lazy Sunday and tell me all about it. For now I have another product to review for you all lovely ladies. It is the Max Factor False Lash effect Fusion.
I am always on a quest for a GOOD mascara. I have been through many many many mascaras and keep trying new ones to try and achieve those perfect eyelashes. Well I have finally found “The” mascara and no this is not the one I am reviewing right now, but I will review that one next for sure. Mascaras are so ESSENTIAL in our daily makeup routine, I find that sometimes when I don’t wear a kohl/kajal and I apply a tad bit of mascara before I leave the house, it creates a huge difference. My eyes seem to appear a lot more open, and awake. This trick is a must for all people who need to look awake, fake it with this handy creation till you’re actually feeling awake. Mascaras are also so convenient when a girl needs to glam up her look! It is truly a great creation to add volume and definition to our lashes.
Product Claim– False Lash Effect Fusion combines Max Factor’s biggest ever volumising brush with its latest lengthening formula to create thicker and longer lashes. For those girls who want an extreme lash look, they’ve come to the right place.

My Experience with Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara:
The mascara comes in a gorgeous purple tube, with a slight sheen to it and the wand size is relatively big. The tube is large with a silver ring encircling the top of the tub, with Max Factor written on it. I enjoy how pretty a purple it is! It stands out, just like the Maybelline Colossal mascara does in my makeup stash.
Okay so now lets get straight to how it looks and feels on my lashes. I purchased this mascara for regular wear to achieve some volume and length everyday. I required two- three coats to achieve the desired effect, it wasn’t that clumpy on application and I was glad about that. But if you are not careful with the wand, you might end up smudging the mascara near your eyes (I know I did that *embarrassed*). As for the smell of the product, I was not a big fan of it. It was too chemical-y and overpowering.
Unfortunately for me, I found this mascara to be a bit too heavy on my eyelashes. Honestly, I found it to be quiet uncomfortable for regular wear. As for the length and the volume of the lashes? I found the Maybelline Colossal does a much better and cleaner job than this particular one. I had to apply 3 coats on my eye lashes to achieve the desired look, whereas with the colossal one, I just swipe it once and I am good to go (After I curl my lashes). This one also did not hold my curl very well and I thought it was instead making my lashes flat. You definitely would need a makeup remover to get rid of this mascara from your lashes, please don’t try and remove it with soap and water. I lost few of my precious lashes in the process 🙁 and it made my eyes red.
Overall, I was not particularly drawn to this mascara and won’t be wearing it for regular use.
Pros of Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara:
• Was not clumpy on application
• Cute packaging, that stands out cause of its lush purple and silver packaging.
Cons of Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara:
• Felt too heavy on my lashes and felt uncomfortable for regular wear.
• Does not add too much of length and volume to the lashes, does a decent job after you apply 3 coats.
• Does not have a great smell to it,it is slightly overpowering.
• Did not hold my curl well.
• Not easy to remove (require an oil based makeup remover to get rid of it totally.)
• Made my eyes red on removal.
Would I repurchase this product again? Definite no from my end.
Do I recommend this product? Let’s just say this, there are many other products in the market that will give your lashes great length and volume without the heavy feel. But if you don’t mind the heaviness, you could try it. However it does not have a wow factor to it and you could probably try the original Max factor (Black and pink tube) rather than the above Fusion one.
