Max Factor Eye Brightening Tonal Black Volumising Mascara


I'm going to try and keep this post relatively sweet because, let's face it, reading about mascara is pretty boring.  I bought this on a whim in Superdrug and it has become my favourite mascara ever.

This mascara comes in three different shades for green, blue or brown eyes.  I got the one for green eyes, which means it has a plummy, almost metallic tinge to it which should help to brighten the eyes.  I'm not sure if it actually does this, but what it does do is thicken my lashes nicely, hold some sort of curl and make my eyelashes look much fuller and more noticeable for longer.  It's a thick enough formula, without being gloopy, and whilst the wand can sometimes feel a little scratchy (like the mascara's going a bit dry....only it isn't!), it just means that I can really give it a wiggle without rubbing mascara all across my eyelid.  In fact, this is one of the only mascaras that doesn't transfer onto my eyelid whilst I'm applying it.  The bristles are also tapered towards the end, meaning that it really gets in and grabs smaller eyelashes.

And the best part?  This mascara is pretty cheap as far as mascaras go!  I've not heard this mentioned at all on the blogosphere, but if you suffer from medium/short, sparse lashes which never hold a curl then this is well worth giving a go!
