Regular readers will know I have not yet found my favourite mascara, but when I do I will yodel it from the trees, like a chimp on LSD. Until then….I’ll continue to waste money on numerous near misses.
Luckily, I was sent this Max Factor Lash Extension mascara for free to test out. Max Factor mascaras always seen to get great reviews, even though it has been a long time since I have used one:
Please excuse the overly dark photographs – anyway the brush is a rubber type with lots of little fine bristles. The promise is volume and length.
Did it work?The brush is lovely for a really nice, separated effect. It keeps the lashes nicely clump free and I imagine is buildable.
I didn’t get further than 2 coats because I experienced the dreaded lash flop with this mascara. Gah. It happens a lot to be honest with you, will 95% of mascara’s so I will forgive Max.
Nevertheless this is a really clean effect mascara. I wouldn’t say it was really a fake lash effect but just a really clean, defined look:
Worth trying with my Shiseido lash base? I think so. That stuff usually holds my curl.
Overall its a nice mascara for a natural, defined look. Not really much volume, and flopping for us short lashed girls but its a decent mascara.
