Max Factor: False Lash Effect Mascara Review

I used this mascara a few years ago and I remembered about it recently so I decided to repurchase it. "Max Factor's biggest ever brush with 50% more bristles gives a sweep of never-ending volume for a glamorous look you never thought your own lashes could give you. " Click here if you want to find out more about this mascara. I bought this for £10.99 in Boots in a 3 for 2 offer.

Length: 4/5 This mascara did add some length to my lashes, my lashes are so fair that you can't even see them without mascara so this did make a difference. Although my lashes are already quite long I did find this mascara to be build-able which gave even more length.

Overall Performance: 3/5 I liked this mascara overall, but I didn't find it easy to apply, as you can see in the video it began to clump in areas during the second coat, but a bit of blinking sorted it out eventually. I did feel that it made my lashes look ever so slightly clumpy, I definitely wouldn't put on a third coat. I also find this mascara difficult to remove at night as it is quite pigmented and it also flaked slightly during the day, but it did hold my lashes in place all day. 

Volume: 4/5 This mascara did add good volume to my lashes but I would say that it was a clumpy sort of volume which actually looks good with the right look. I don't think it gave them a 'false' look as I would have liked it to even out my lashes more and give the volumised fan appearance.

Expense: 4/5 For £10.99 this mascara is probably more on the expensive side, but it did give me a nice defined look which was visible from further away (I hate it when you get your lashes looking great only to step back from the mirror and they disappear). It also lats really well but I don't like how difficult it can be to take off, it feels like I'm having to scrub my lashes a bit too much. I would still like to try other Max Factor mascaras to see how they compare. 

If you have a mascara that you would like me to review just let me know - I would love to try it.
