If I were made to choose just one product or makeup I will forever use on my eyes, I will pick mascara in a heartbeat. I love how it instantly opens up the eyes and makes batting the lashes so much better. I have tried just a few and liked most of them, my favorites being Clinique Lash Power Mascara and Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Mascara. But since they have already expired, t'was time to throw them in the bin and try something else. Just like what I have mentioned on my Clinique Lash Power review, I don't know if I can bring myself to spend more or less than a thousand bucks just for a single tube of mascara, so I decided to try something new which is the Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara. I got the waterproof variant because I have not checked out reviews about it yet only to find out when I checked MUA that the non-waterproof variant is better. But heck, I already have it so I had no choice but to just use it. I didn't want to go back to the mall just to have it exchanged as I might end up going home with a few more things. :P
The brush reminds me of the brush in Cover Girl Lash Blast. It's bulky and big and made of rubber.
This mascara does a pretty good job at separating and lengthening my lashes. As for volumizing, I really do not see any difference but I can say that my lashes look better. I like the fact that I can apply 2-3 coats without any clumping. It makes a lot of difference without looking unnatural, which is quite against its being the False Lash Effect mascara. It doesn't look as if I have false eyelashes on which is okay with me since I'm all for the natural look. Basically if you want dramatic lashes, this is not the mascara for you. But if you like "my-lashes-but-better" that still looks natural, you may want to consider trying this one. As I have mentioned earlier, I got the waterproof variant.
