I bought this mascara after hearing that it was the same as Covergirl 'Lash Blast', which is highly raved about, so I picked this up to give it a go. I chose the waterproof version, because with summer coming up and the (hopefully) warm weather, I wanted to make sure my mascara didn't give me panda eyes throughout the day.
I really like this mascara. The packaging says "Full lashes, natural look" - Surely that doesn't work?! The name of the mascara suggests that it will give you a 'false lash effect', so how is that a natural look! Anyway, I think the mascara does live up to its claims. It's extremely lengthening and gives you a nice amount of volume. I found this mascara very buildable. After 3 coats of mascara, I still hadn't experienced any clumping.
I found the formula of the mascara to be very wet. It stayed 'wet' on my lashes for a long time and I had to sometimes be careful when blinking, because it would end up all over my eyelids! I have had this mascara for a while now and it still hasn't dried out, which I'm really happy with because I hate spending approximately £10 on a mascara, only for it to be dry within a few weeks. The waterproof formula is extremely good. It doesn't smudge or flake and is a bit of a pain to remove at night!
I think I will definitely be repurchasing this mascara again. Although next time I might go for the non waterproof version, because I only like wearing waterproof mascara during the summer and/or if I'm on holiday. I also want to try the new Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion mascara (in the purple tube) - Has anyone tried that? Any thoughts?
Have you ever tried Max Factor FLE? What did you think?
Thank you for reading. xoxo, Joy
