Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara

We were waiting for lunch when my Mom asked me, "Did you get eyelash extensions?" I was surprised by the question, since it was the first time she ever asked me anything like it. My mom knows (quite better than anyone else) how much I love makeup. She knows that I always wear makeup whenever I'm out of the house so it's odd - and flattering - of her to ask!

The culprit in question is the Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara (P750). It made my lashes look longer at the tips and thicker at the base, while still appearing thin and natural. That's not new I know. But it pulls off the effect so flawlessly that it fooled my mom into thinking I had work done on my lashes. :D

I admit that it's already desensitizing for you, me raving about mascaras all the time, but I think there's something really special with this one!

What I love about the product 

  • Makes my lashes look thick and long without looking completely fake. It also forms my lashes into this even, triangular shape.
  • It doesn't smudge or budge with daily wear and tear, although expect some mess when you cry or sweat too much.
  • Keeps the curl all day!
  • The fat wand with short bristles makes application easy and quick.
  • Doesn't have any odd, chemical smell.
  • Quite a lot of product in the tube - 13.1 ml! Most mascaras will clock in at 8-10ml.
  • Fairly affordable at P750.


What I don't like about the product

  • Nothing, really. Well I hope the tube is not so fat and big since it's a bother to travel with, but that's a very minor point.



If you're looking for a new mascara for your personal or professional use, the Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara is a great buy! Celebrity makeup artist Lisa Eldridge LOVES it so much, and uses it all the time! That's where this product caught my attention actually. :D It gives a dramatic look without going overboard, thus making it extremely versatile.

Love it. Well I love a lot of mascaras to be honest - often I think it's just in the eyelash curler you use and the application technique. It's in the wrist, as they say! But this mascara is pretty special in my book. ;)

So, tried any new mascaras lately? What secret technique do you use when applying them?
