Oriflame 2FX Mascara Review

Oriflame 2FX Mascara Review

When I saw the name 2FX mascara, along with the advertising that this is the only double agent mascara, I was hysterical; I wanted to be one of the first ones to ‘own’ it. The day I had it in my hand I felt like James Bondi (female James Bond hehehe). Checkout the advertisement and claim you’ll know what I meant.

Ladies you won’t believe but till about a month back I had no idea that there existed 2 in 1 kind of mascara other than Oriflame 2FX. If it weren’t for Pooja I would have never known.Ya ya I agree… was living in a cocoon.


What it claims:
Open your Eyes to 2FX Mascara


Only from Oriflame, create two looks with one mascara

Introducing the revolutionary 2FX Mascara – one mascara, two effects. For the first time, you can give your eyes two amazing looks – highly defined, separated and longer lashes or fuller, volumised lashes – all from a single innovative applicator thanks to a breakthrough in mascara technology.


The innovation is in the ingenious cap and clever adjustable bristle brush which can be changed to suit your needs and style. If you open one cap, you have a thin brush with a small amount of formula which gives your lashes a light coat of mascara, separating, defining and lengthening them. And with a simple twist and click, you can open the other cap and you suddenly have a thicker ultra volume brush, with more formula to create volumised, fuller lashes – truly eye catching!
Clinically tested, Oriflame’s 2FX mascara makes your lashes up to 40% longer and creates nine times more volume. 91%* of women who have tried 2FX believe it is easy to use and delivers two very distinct mascara results. And what’s more, its longer wearing formula means you don’t have to re-apply!
*Based on consumer self-assessment on 99 women
Length or volume: 2 effects in 1 mascara. Whatever your mission, get lashes to match.
One mascara, Two effects – How does it all work?
While it might at first appear that there are two different brushes, there is of course only one. Thanks to an innovative brush wiper mechanism, opening the black cap limits the amount of bulk that is deposited on the brush for defined yet lengthened lashes. When you open the silver cap more mascara is left on the brush for voluptuous and volumized lashes. 2FX mascara is a secret beauty weapon in your hand bag!


Content: black waxy pigmented mascara

Brushes: 1 brush just the amout differs according to which cap we open as the brush when used witht the black cap goes through a wiper. Nothing special worth mentioning about the brush itself

Smell: It has a very mild undistinguishable smell. (Yes I smelt it)
Packaging: Black fat cylindrical tube with 2 caps one black and the other a dirty white and not silver.


Rati had reviewed the Bourjois Volumizer Mascara and Mrunmayee had reviewed Oriflame Beauty Lash Explosion if only I wasn’t so busy and had read the review, I would never even imagine of buying this mascara.
My experience was disappointing.
• It clumps. Do I need to say more?
• Does not separate lashes well.
• I’m sure the mascara hates monsoons, as it isn’t water proof.
• Dries easily thus is difficult to apply the volumising coat smoothly
• The lashes do not curl properly; they curl unevenly and seem to have fought with each other, because they all look towards different directions.
• The mascara feels heavy on the lashes after the 2 steps
• The claims of being the first of its kind is false as the company has another version of this mascara called the Oriflame Beauty Lash Explosion and Bourjois has one
• Expensive for an ineffective mascara; there are other simple mascaras that work way better that this
• My lashes do not look soft and dainty, but instead look stiff and prickly

Will I repurchase? Hmmm….. NO!!….. Even if it’s on offer.

Rate: None

  9. I had the opposite experience with this. My eyelashes didn’t clump at all. And it didn’t streak after wetting my face in the rain. In fact, I found the volumising and lengthening abilities of the mascara quite good.
