Tried & Tested: Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara

I’ve never tried any Max Factor Mascaras, so I was really excited to try this one: Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara.  Color wise, there are black, black/brown and deep blue shades to choose from.  The one that I try is black.  Quoting from their campaign, this mascara has the ability “Up To 2x More Volume & Length For 100% Lash Glamour”.  Sounds tempting, right?

First of all, I love the packaging. Bright purple chubby tube and when you open it, you can see the wand has short plastic bristles, of which I’m so in love with because my lashes are not gonna be clumpy. They do a really really good job separating my lashes.

I noticed my lashes look black, longer and with more volume, but still natural on the first stroke. If you are one who loves volumizing your lashes and dramatic lashes look, apply more coats, build up and you’ll have it.

I know some of you have straight down lashes, but I couldn’t say for sure whether this mascara holds up your curl pretty well, because I have a slight natural curl without curling my lashes.  At least for me this mascara does a very good job, it doesn’t take long a long time to dry, it doesn’t smudge and the staying power is great.

Now  about the “False Lash Effect”, is it gives me that?  Nope.  Everyone who sees my lashes will know I’m not wearing any false lashes, but my lashes are more noticeable with this mascara.  I’m not a fan putting false lashes so I would love to use this one on daily basis.

Removing the mascara is very simple, I use baby oil because my eyes are sensitive to some eye makeup removers and I’m too lazy to try any brands without knowing for sure whether it will hurt my eyes or not.  Drip baby oil on cotton pad and wipe it a few times softly, and it’s gone.  That easy.  However, this is not a waterproof mascara, so if you think you’re gonna cry that day (wedding, farewell, graduation, or watching sad movie) I wouldn’t recommend this one to you.

Overall, I love this mascara.  It gives my lashes more volume, length, and bold black with a little effort.  Easy to use, easy to remove.  What’s not to love?  It retails for IDR 138,000 and you can grab this on leading department stores.
