Maxfactor False Lash Effect Mascara

Wednesday, 17 August 2011

I go on my hols in less than a month so I'm hurriedly preparing my packing list and trying to tick off all the items I'm going to need for a week in the sun :)

After a recent make-up clear out i noticed i haven't got any waterproof mascaras! Cue mad panic and a desperate search of blogs for some tips that would help me have gorgeous, fluttery, voluminous lashes that wont wash off in the pool/ocean leaving me looking like an extra from a Zombie movie.

I decided on Maxfactor's False Lash Effect Waterproof mascara in Black:

I love the chunky tube and sleek black packaging

I prefer a thicker volumising brush but this works perfectly well :)

This mascara comes in a neat black tube with gold font and a royal blue Maxfactor logo. The wand is long and slim while the brush is full of thin plastic bristles. I usually perfer a thick, chunky brush as i find these add the most volume to lashes but this brush works exceptionally well.

This mascara is fab! I wasn't too sure i was going to get on with it at first (i totally judge a mascara by its brush and as I've said before i love a really thick, bristly brush!)

Maxfactor's False Lash Effect mascara really lengthens and separates the lashes well. I was super impressed as they stayed separated all day!

Another plus for this mascara is that it doesn't flake at all! My usual combo of Maybelline's Great Lash and 17's Va Va Volume mascara's like to flake and go crispy as the day wears on so I'm thrilled to not have to keep checking my reflection for little black specks on my face.

My main reason for choosing this mascara was because it was waterproof.

I put this to the test and can confirm it hold ups under the emotional strain of everyday life :'(  and also under a full on shower while washing my hair. It did not budge! :)

Maxfactor i salute you. I have found an excellent waterproof mascara that adds definition to my eyes. I am now armed for my holidays with gorgeous dark fluttery lashes.

I picked this up from Tesco's using my 'Double-up' vouchers along with some make-up wipes so technically it was free :) RRP: £10.99.
Have you tried this mascara? I also need a waterproof kohl eyeliner - any suggestions?




  1. I've never tried False Lash Effect! I really need to get on it though! It's made your lashes look amazing! Great to hear it holds up it's waterproof claims too! xx

  2. I really want to try this! I've been using the rimmel day to night :)
