Review: Max Factor False Lash Effect

Bonjour readers! The keen-eyed amongst you may have noticed that I have made a twitter account from which you can keep an eye on all my new posts. Follow me (online please, not in real life). Now, back to beauty.

I received this as a freebie with another purchase, can’t remember what (mind, sieve…same thing), and couldn’t wait to try it out. The fat bottle and brush leads one to assume that ones lashes (gosh I sound posh…and I’m a poet!) shall also become fat after using, and one gets rather excited.

But don’t judge a mascara by its bottle – lashes are left thin, sparse and hard as rocks, and the only good thing about it is that it has an eye-opening effect. Putting on more coats does lengthen the lashes but also makes them clumpy and uneven.

It is also extremely hard to remove. I went through 4 simple face wipes (usually it only takes one) and splashed my face with water before giving up. That’s right. I’m a giver-upper.

Not good. Not good.

I really don’t recommend this mascara, but let me know in the comments if you would!

Please follow me on twitter, and I’ll a’follow you right back!

Love ya,
