Give me Dolly Lashes with Max Factor

By 16:21 , ,

I've never really had issues with my lashes. I've never owned a curler until I was given one about a few months back *still sitting pretty & unused in the box :P*. Given, that my lashes are naturally curled and slightly long. But I've always had a thing for mascaras. It's one of those must haves products that can open up my small sleepy eyes instantly. Okay, I can use falsies to make it easier but I'm terrible at putting them on *fear that it might dangle down half way while I'm walking around if I didn't put it on right*.

Enter Max Factor False Lash Effect! 
I found the Max Factor counter while walking through Isetan, Lot 10 with Miu. The short-lived surprise quickly turned into excitement. Lol! We tried on almost everything there. But both agreed that we had to have the False Effect Lashes! Alright I needed some convincing since I already have a few. Long story short, we bought quite a few things! Read Miu's review here.

Max Factor False Lash Effect gives you big, thick, full, long lashes. It makes you look as if you're wearing falsies *hence the name*. Pat McGrath, an established makeup artists in charge of Max Factor used the False Effect Lash backstage during Milan Fashion Week in October 2007 and February 2008. *could this work wonders?*

I got it in Black Waterproof

Yeah notice the tube! Looks like it could last you half a year. But since mascaras dry up quite fast and you're suppose to chuck it after 3 months, it doesnt really matter how long it'll last.

But what I found slightly scary was the huge brush at the end of the wand when I took it out of the tube. The Big Brush has been created with patented, thermoplastic elastomer technology and contains 50% more bristles. It coats more of each lash, volumise with every sweep and separates for a natural-looking lift & volume.  It coats from root to tip, giving you a 100% impact!!

Trust me to compare the size to lipbalms ~
As the bristles on the brush is dense it holds a lot more product and is able to coat each lash fully & evenly. Despite it's density, it glides on smoothly.

The silver tube is one of my faves! See the difference in size.


1st Coat

The difference in length is obvious even with 1 coat

2nd Coat

Not only has it lengthen, I can see slight volume and the lash separates with ease.

Up til the 2nd coat it looks natural and really opens up my eyes. Though I find that it lengthens more than it volumises. I also find it quite difficult to get it into the corner lashes with the big brush. Applying with the tip tend to cause clumping. So I had to comb out the clumps with a small brush.

Difficult to manoeuvre the brush at the corners
It's as big as my eye! :P

3rd Coat

Being curious I applied a 3rd coat. Lol! But as you can see it started looking a bit stiff, unnatural and a tad bit phreakish. I would stop at 2 *winks*.

I applied to the bottom lash as well

Unless you fancy looking a bit spidery then I say don't do it! ;)

I quite like this mascara. It doesn't smudge and I don't find any mascara bits dropping off. The only problem I have with it is the huge brush. I would still use it though coz I like the way my eyes actually look awake! 

L-R: Before, 1st, 2nd, 3rd Coats

False Lash Effect Mascara has undergone an extensive programme of safety testing. It is ophthalmologically tested, fragrance free and suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
