These days, there are several shades available for Eyeliners, Kohls and Mascaras. As many brands have featured browns, blues and greys, there are gipsies who love experimenting with colours like purple, red, blues and pinks. Most of the cosmetic brands offer plenty of shades to woo its loyal and prospective customers and certainly, it is becoming a hit among the teens. However, be it any occasion, mood or season, I always go for a classic jet black mascara. As I am a big fan of eye makeup, I never step out of my house without wearing my eyeliner, mascara and kohl.
While I was running out of The Body Shop Mascara, I was checking online for good mascaras available in the market. I almost zeroed my Maybelline Colossal Mascara, but I have used it a year ago, and I thought why not try a new one! So, when I was in Superdrug (such a big advantage of having Superdrug close to my office and home), I was completely perplexed at the look of so many mascaras from various brands. Believe me, it was such a difficult task to pick one among them as every product looked better than the other! However, after exploring many products from Revlon, Rimmel, L’Oreal and Max Factor, I bought The Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara, just to try this brand as I have never used it before. And, I was impressed with this mascara.
Looking for a False-Lash Look without the fuss?
Our special formula doubles your volume
* From root to tip for False-Lash impact.
* Thickness volume, Appearance vs Bare lashes.
Tips to Apply:
1. Use an eyelash curler before applying mascara to shape your lashes and open up your eye area.
2. Look down into a mirror and work the mascara wand from side-to-side, root to tip.
3. Look up and apply to your lower lashes. Use the ball tip of the wand to coat each lash for a defined look.
4. Wait until tacky before applying the second coat to your upper lashes.
My Experience with Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara – Black:
To begin with the packaging of the product, the mascara comes in a simple and sturdy black tube with a decent wand size. The tube has a thick golden ring at the top with the brand name printed on it. The mascara has a little overpowering smell.
Well, I have quite long eyelashes and I purchased this one for regular office wear to add some volume and intensity. The bristles are quite soft and the size is quite convenient to glide it smoothly on my lashes. I usually apply 2 coats of mascara and the effect is pretty decent. It is not clumpy and the black colour has good depth to give a good match to my black eyeliner and kohl. I tried curling my lashes through this mascara, and to be honest, I didn’t get any overwhelming result, but it gave a decent curl to my lashes. It is smudge proof, lightweight and it dries quickly.
I liked the consistency as it is smooth, soft and easy to apply. The durability of this mascara is really great. I apply this mascara around 8 am (before stepping out home) and remove after 7 pm and it doesn’t look patchy or clumpy in the evening hours. However, it doesn’t hold the curls throughout the day. It didn’t cause any eye irritation or watering in my eyes. To add an extra shine and softness to your lashes, try applying a thin coat of Vaseline after applying this mascara. It adds a subtle shine and nourishes your lashes as well.
It gives a decent curling effect and it is nowhere written that this is a waterproof mascara. But based on my experience, I felt this is a waterproof mascara because it takes a lot of time to remove this mascara. When I used a makeup remover, it took 5 minutes to remove the mascara completely. You need to be very careful while removing it, to avoid any irritation to your eyes.
