So this is the mascara that prompted my (very uninterested in make-up) boyfriend to ask if I was wearing false lashes a few weeks ago which made me decide that it is definitely worthy of a blog post all of its very own...
The most recent addition to the Max factor range of mascara's are the eye brightening mascaras, available in three shades (Black Pearl for Brown eyes, Black Ruby for Green eyes and Black Sapphire for Blue eyes) each shade is black based and contain light reflecting gem toned colour beads specifically intended to enhance every eye colour.
I picked this up in Superdrug after my usual mascara died a death about a month ago on rave recommendation from my Mum who insisted it was the best mascara since sliced bread (??),I've always been a huge sucker for any cosmetics with the word 'brightening' in anyway and with it being on an introductory offer for £4.99 (now £6.99 in Superdrug) including a free mini nail polish I decided it was worth giving a go.
I love it!! But not for its eye brightening quality as I find this to be so subtle that it's barely noticeable (for the Brown eyes formula anyway) I prefer the Luminizer volume million lashes from L'Oreal for a colour enhancing mascara by comparisin and would definitely recommend it over this one for that purpose. It's the actual formula and the ifx wand of this mascara that are amazing, together giving lift, curl, separation, and a tonne of volume which lasts all day (and night if you happen to fall asleep wearing it, which I never, ever do of course *cough* ;D).
|Black pearl swatched, the Blue tone and colour beads are so much more apparant than they translate to lashes in real life.|
|ifx wand- A fine plastic tapered wand which is so good for defining and coating hard to reach inner corner lashes and makes lower lash application really easy.|
Have you tried this yet?
