Max Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara


If there’s one thing Max Factor does best as a brand – it’s their mascaras! Even the weakest in their link is still good enough and they’re never really a disappointment. You can only measure how satisfied you are with them on scales of five to ten. And this new release is pretty darn good (I’d give it a solid 7.5)!

The Voluptuous Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara (£11.99) is a special edition of the False Lash Effect mascara and features a redesigned Lash Lifting Brush. This brush should ensure that your lashes are lifted immediately and creates more volume. The brush consists of a spiral shape with tiny intricate-looking wide fins and long bristles to provide a powerful lift, to coat lashes with mascara and provide separation. In addition, the special rounded spiky tip of the brush can be used to make lower lashes pop.

I think this mascara looks attractive and it surely has an interesting wand but, even though I usually like big rubbery wands – this one seems a tad too big. You really need to get used to its dimensions to avoid smudging the mascara on the upper lid. As for the wand shape, I don’t find it gimmicky since rotation of the wand allows the roots of my lashes to get coated as well as the ends. My lashes are pretty thin and weak so a mascara is one of those pieces of my makeup on which I rely on greatly.

I find that this mascara isn’t ‘wet’ at all and after 7-10 days of using it, it gets prone to drying out making the application intensity dependant of layering the product you don’t get that impressive effect with one swipe anymore). One single coat doesn’t give me ultra volumized lashes but two (eventually three) coats really do make my lashes stand out and give a solid lift. I really love the fact it truly hangs onto my lashes during the entire day without a single flake – this gets major points.

In the end, I do like this mascara and I’ve been wearing it for the majority of the month of April. But I personally don’t get that extra volume, extra lengthening or extra false-lash effect I desire. It does separate well, doesn’t clump and gives a solid volume (it’s not too lengthehing so the focus really is on pumping that volume!). Voluptuous Max Factor False Lash Effect is of a moderate effect thus ideal for really pretty daytime eye looks. I’d tell you it’s a showstopper but it lacks just a bit of je ne sais quoi, just a nudge of ‘that certain something’, you know?

  • Ako postoji jedna stvar u kojoj Max Factor briljira, onda su to definitivno maskare! Cak je i najslabija karika dovoljno dobra u smislu da nikada nije potpuno razocarenje. Svoje iskustvo sa ovim maskarama mozete mjeriti samo zadovoljstvom na skali od pet do deset. A novitet na trzistu o kojem pisem danas je jako dobar (dajem mu solidnih 7.5!).
  • Voluptuous Max Factor False Lash Effect maskara (28,40 KM) je posebno izdanje False Lash Effect maskare i ima novi dizajn cetkice za nanosenje, nazvan Lash Lifting Brush. Ova cetkica je napravljena sa ciljem da ‘podigne’ trepavice i pruzi volumen. Spiralnog je oblika i po sebi ima sicusce plasticne ‘dlacice’ – jedne su malo duze, druge slice sirokim perajima i ideja je da obuhvate svaku trepavicu i lijepo ih razdvoje. Dodatak na vrhu cetkice je zaobljeni dio koji se moze koristiti za isticanje manjih trepavica.
  • Dizajn smatram atraktivnim a cetkica svakako izgleda zanimljivo. Ipak, pored moje ljubavi spram vecih gumenih cetkica – ova je mozda i prevelikih dimenzija. Potrebno je navikavanje na nju kako bi izbjegli razmazivanje maskare po gornjem kapku pri nanosenju. Sto se tice neobicnog oblika cetkice, nije samo marketinski trik jer rotiranje cetkice stvarno prekrije trepavice cijelom duzinom – pogotovo pri suzenju cetkice. Moje trepke su prilicno tanke, slabe i maskara je definitivno jedan od kozmetickih proizvoda koji su mi dosta bitni pri sminkanju.
  • Formulacija ove maskare uopste nije ‘mokra’ i primjetila sam da je nakon sedam do deset dana koristenja sklona isusivanju – nakon tog perioda, postici istaknute trepavice vise ne mozete jednim slojem (kao na pocetku) vec je za volumen potrebno vise slojeva. Otprilike su dva do tri sloja potrebna za potpuni efekat i primjetno ‘podizanje’ trepavica. Ono sto je veliki adut ove maskare je formulacija, koja me odusevila svojom trajnoscu (cijeli radni dan!) i cinjenicom da se uopste ne trusi. Tu od mene dobija dodatne bodove.
  • Na kraju, sumirala bih svoje iskustvo sa ovom maskarom cinjenicom da sam je nosila najcesce tokom mjeseca aprila – sto ce reci da mi se dopala. Ali nije mi pruzila bas izuzetni volumen, nije mi znacajno produzila trepavice i nisam uspjela iz nje izvuci efekat laznih trepavica. Zaista lijepo razdvaja trepke, uopste se ne grudva i volumen koji pruza je solidan (sam po sebi, nije razocaravajuci). Voluptuous Max Factor False Lash Effect je maskara idealna za dnevni makeup jer lijepo uokviri oci i uklopi se u ostatak sminke. Proglasila bih je izuzetnom da je samo malo ‘jaceg’ voluminoznog efekta. Do potpune pohvale joj nedostaje mrvica ‘onog necega’ da bi odskocila od ostalih maskara, ako znate na sta mislim.
