♥ Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara ♥

Afternoon ladies! I thought I would share my thoughts on this mascara. I have been a fan of Max Factor Mascara for over 14 years. I started off using S-T-R-E-T-C-H, then calorie 2000, at the time I was at College and a poor student, Max Factor was expensive to me then. So I used to buy them off Ebay for cheaper, but I soon noticed that although the auction stated they were brand new, sealed and everything, which they were. Inside they were as dry as the bottom of a birdcage! So I had a little break from using MF and went onto Maybelline, I started using Stiletto, that was ok, but I’m a fan of the BIG brush. So next I tried Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Mascara, that was good too and I stuck with that for about a year. Then I tried L’Oreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara but I found this and the Colossal both had a funny whiff about them, does anyone else agree? I could smell it all day! Anyway I have come full circle and have come back to my trusty Max Factor Mascara.

I am quite lucky that I have long eyelashes, my mum and sister both do too so it must be in the genes! Fingers crossed I get a little girl when me and Darren ♥ start for bubbas!

I don’t have any foundation on in these pics, just a little MAC MSF in medium. MAC eyeshadows in All That Glitters and Twinks, Stila eyepencil in Onyx on the top waterline and that’s it.

Apologies for my eyebrows! The macro function on my camera picks up everything!

I am a natural eyebrow lifter, my left eyebrow just lifts on its own, so my eyes look a little uneven in this picture

After this MF mascara finishes I'm going to treat myself to Big Fatty mascara by Urban Decay, I’ve heard/seen some good reviews on it on here and on You Tube.

Are any of you a Max Factor mascara fan like me? Ever tried Big Fatty by UD? I’d love to know

Have a good weekend girlies

  1. I tried this mascara awhile back, but had just gotten the Covergirl Lash Blast, and threw this one out because they were similar. LOL. Now I keep hearing really good reviews of it! Too bad they aren't really available in the states anymore. :(
    Anyway, I awarded you the I Heart Your Blog award. :)

  2. The only Max Factor mascara I have is the Max Factor 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper,which is incredibly similar to CG's Lash Blast. Was it released in the UK under a different name?

  3. Wow - your lashes look awesome. I have Max Factor 2000 Calorie and I really enjoy it... too bad it is no longer in US.

  4. Your eyelashes look like mine if I wear falsies!!! So jealous :P

  5. Never tried it but your lashes look great!

  6. Ohh your lashes look so wispy and perfect! Gorgeous! xxx

  7. Thanks for the comments girlies x x
